Thank you very much for the positive feedback regarding the continued progress of The Verandah. It is most encouraging to hear all the hard work is noticed and more importantly appreciated. Hopefully, on your next trip, you will be again "pleasantly surprised"

We always try other restaurants in Puerto Galera but none can beat the quality and service at The Verandah. The food is interesting, utterly delicious and beautifully presented. Staff cannot do enough for you and the atmosphere is cosy and calm.

The food was fantastic, only wish there was more variety. In some cases I would order food only having them call me back saying it was unavailable.

View from the restaurant is beautiful with blue water and boats dotting the horizon. The waitress that served us was friendly and welcoming. With a light lunch, the food hit the hunger spot and was on a general par with other resort restaurants.
