Our second visit to the restaurant and was not disappointed. The staff are attentive, friendly and helpful . The food amazing, we had Elk! Who would have thought, but it was so tasty. The whole experience was lovely.
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.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to supply feed back that is tangible and specific. It is this kind of thought and intent that will allow us to actually assess and improve our operations. So many reviews are unspecific and useless to this important process. We are incredibly down hearted that the high-level experience you have come to know and love was not the actuality on this occasion. The only shame here is that we did not know on the day as we could have gleaned more information regarding the gnocchi to help us understand where the disappointment lay and pulled back on our service which was obviously over attentive and disruptive to your fellow diners. We acknowledge that the noon to 2pm early session is not always agreeable to all diners as the time limit can be restrictive in some instances. When this is the case during the booking process and we are aware that the time frame is a concern, we do offer three options. The first is to take the early session and we transfer to another time if a cancellation occurs, the second is the waiting list for a different time and the third is selecting an alternative date where a more favourable time is available. Thank you once again for your considered and valuable feed back. We will put it to good use. We look forward to your future visits and the return of the 10/10 experience you deserve. Your sincerely, Jo Reschke
Beautiful. We enjoyed delicious food with polite, happy and efficient staff in a beautiful setting. Thank you, we'll be back.
Great food and service
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.
