Continental
The Verandah is a celebrated restaurant that brings you a faultless combination of heavenly traditional Continental cuisine, blended with innovation, fine wines and discreet,attentive service,in a classic yet relaxing setting in true Peninsula style. The Verandah re-opened following a six-month-long extensive restoration and refurbishment of its interiors and kitchens on August 2009. It maintains the relaxed and spacious atmosphere of the original Repulse Bay Hotel but with a Grand Hall to create a more spacious and welcoming arrival experience and a revitalised interior. A new Grand Staircase provides stylish and convenient passage from the restaurant to the Palm Court and the retail arcade. Regulars can rest assured that The Verandah's celebrated signature dishes - and its traditional English Afternoon Tea and Sunday Brunch - remain on its bill of fare.

Had afternoon tea set for 2. Nice selection of pastry. More than enough for 2. Quiet and comfortable. Servers are prompt. However Chinaware is too old and tarnished. Want to visit again.

Delighted to have been given a window seat
Great view and an impressive range of starters and desserts. Only improvement
would have been some petits fours or chocolates with the coffee.

Continues to be an institution. May, 2018 Sunday Brunch was excellent. The buffet part was varied, well presented, and delicious. The entrees were small and not up to the restaurant's normal level. The overall service and ambiance is still the best Sunday location in Hong Kong.

This could be a charming place for lunch. Unfortunately, the dining room is kept at a freezing level temperature, which makes it uncomfortable and unpleasant, to truly appreciate a meal.

Also, the taxi dropped us off, in an underground parking lot, in the back of the shopping center. So we ended up entering the restaurant from the back side. This basically defeats the purpose of going all the way to this heritage house, if we completely miss out, on the colonial architecture of the facade, upon arrival...

Okay, if Open Table insists, here is my review ;)

It was the last moment in Hong Kong where I flew from Tokyo for Art Basel Hong Kong. It's been my habit to spend last tea time in this place viewing beautiful Repulse Bay beach since I firstly visited HK 25 year's ago. It was fantastic to get a seat on window as I requested through Open Table even it was not centre, and afternoon tea treats were delicious and cooked in right way.

However we deeply disappointed for service compared to the one I received in the past. For example, teapots are served with plastic bagged towel on handles instead of quilted cloth covers. I astonished to see that setting and the other servant came and changed those plastic bagged towel to quilted cloth on the table. (Please imagine how it was awkward moment for me who introduced this place to my friend who never been there before)

Plus, we asked the servant to take photo and checked it, then nicely asked to retake again but all we received from him was the word "I should call my colleague because I AM BUSY".

Finally, when my friend asked a doggy bag the servant roughly brought (almost threw) an over-sized plain box and an plain brown bag.

Well, we are not Chinese, but English speaking Japanese visitor to HK for business, (other servants are continually smiling and kept chatting to Chinese and Western clients) however I have been so for long every time I were this restaurant and never had such experience. I am feeling sad both way; made my friend not satisfy 100% there and lost my favourite place in HK.

The Verandah is the most ideal spot in Hong Kong for a quiet trip back to colonial times. It is a beautifully preserved piece of history on Repulse Bay. Whether you go for Sunday brunch, lunch or dinner you'll not regret going to Verandah. The service was also incomparable. Just a fantastic afternoon.
