Perfect location,food,service and weather! Thank you for an amazing experience.
We came for lunch on a Friday. The staff were very welcoming and lovely as normal. The food was presented very well and was delicious. Slow lunch which is what we like but well paced and attention to detail and drinks at all times no matter how busy.
Delightful restaurant, excellent food, knowledgeable staff with an excellent grasp of the wines they are presenting. The degustation lunch including the lobster bisque an souffle is not to be missed.
Their signature dish is hands down, the BEST seafood dish I have ever had in my life! Absolutely superb and I'm kicking myself that I didn't have it when I visited the restaurant 8 years ago...
When my glass of wine wasn’t to my liking there was no offer of an alternative replacement glass. For a winery this is poor form and not great for brand protection. We won’t be returning.
The food is very good and the service fabulous but the setting and decor is very tired - especially for the prices they charge. Need a good refurb - everything from chairs to napery - to be considered fine dining.
We thoroughly enjoyed dining at D'Arry's Verandah. The food was delicious, especially the lobster medallion with blue swimmer crab and prawn tortellini and lobster bisque ( part of the Spring Signature Degustation). Generous wine pairings accompanied each course - 2 wines per course - with expert commentary about the features of the wines. In addition, service was excellent. Allow 2 - 2.5 hours to really enjoy all that is on offer! This is a fabulous dining experience.
What an outstanding afternoon, from arrival to departure and everything in between. It was a wonderful way to spend the day with fine food, fine wine, and excellent service. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone. Congratulations on delivering an outstanding product and service. We will be back.
A lovely lunch with great service.
Absolutely amazing experience! I would highly recommend d’Arry’s Verandah to anyone visiting the cube! We did a wine tasting in the cube before our degustation too! Great experience!
The wine and food we experienced at this lovely location was simply wonderful. It was a windy day, so we ate inside, but the restaurant is atmospheric and had a spectacular outlook. The waiting staff explained that one of the dishes we ordered had been on the menu for 17 years or more and we could see why. It was delicious. We look forward to being able to go back one day and sample some other delights from the menu and enjoy the beautiful SA location.
One of my favourite winery/ restaurants in Australia
Went with friends for lunch and had the best food, wine and service I would highly recommend anyone to go and will be going back again. After lunch we went to The Cube to enjoy wine tasting, great experience.
We regularly attend d'ARENBERG and love the verandah restuarant. Every time i have given it 10/10 for all elements of food and service but today's experience was not up to the high standard we usually experience. The pumpernickel seeds which the beef tartare was on were so hard that they were almost inedible, the guests i was dining with were disappointed with the sage gnocchi. In saying that the soft centered chocolate pudding was spectacular and this element remained a 10/10. The wait staff seemed a bit flustered and, understandably, it was busy. Rather than have one waiter/waitress take care of the table we had many check in, unaware that someone else had just checked in. This meant that the 'ladies and gentlemen' addressed etc were laid on a bit thick. I also like to be able to enjoy the experience and continue to chat after our meal and found the 2PM wrap up a little awkward. I hope that this feedback is useful and we get the wonderful 10/10 experience that d'ARRY's usually delivers on out next visit.
Great food and service
Beautiful. We enjoyed delicious food with polite, happy and efficient staff in a beautiful setting. Thank you, we'll be back.
Love the service, food and atmosphere of d'Arry's verandah. Been coming for 4 years and love how the standards do not diminish no matter how busy they are.
The space between tables was a little bit tight but other than that, I loved it
Great service and find food. The waiter (Frank I think) went the extra mile to help us select the best wines to match our meal.
Despite a 2.30 lunch booking being the only available it was well worth the wait. Really enjoyed by all four people with very high quality lunch choices. Lobster bisque as entree was superb and barramundi maim for me was equally good. Flavours in harissa chicken were also superb and passion fruit soufflé was to die for. Tour through the cube beforehand was really interesting. Very well worth the visit but you definitely have to book fir weekend meals.
