What You Can Expect When Visiting Verde

The Mood

Open and spacious entertainment areas, combined with exceptional design and lighting, offer an experience like no other. We’ve created an ambience that balances a relaxed elegance with space and quality furnishings to keep you comfortable day and night, summer to winter.

By day, our rooms harness the natural sunlight with high ceilings for a relaxing dining experience, and outside, we have an expansive terrace that brings your dining experience to the beauty of the outdoors. By night, watch the space transform into a glimmering oasis among the darkness.

Our guests can enjoy our Mediterranean-inspired terrace all year round and soak up the beautiful Mildura fresh air whatever the weather at the time. Our terrace was designed for peak enjoyment and relaxation, so we couldn’t just make it a summer hangout. In winter, our superior heaters create the perfect temperature, and our canopies protect the setting from any wet weather that threatens to ruin our day. Our elegant festoon lighting strung overhead throughout the year sets the ambience and atmosphere and transforms the space when nightfall comes.

On the terrace, you’ll notice Verde seeping into the natural environment. Lush green walls and plantar boxes line the boundaries with decorative timber panels, industrial steel beams and laser-cut corten steel panels that uniquely infuse modern design into pure comfort.

The Food

Carefully curated by our seasoned chefs, our menu is light on items selected for their exquisite taste and ingredients that complement and match the season. We combine sustainably sourced ingredients, polished recipes and exceptional cooking to create dishes as memorable as the moments you share at Verde.

Choose from classic pub favourites with a refined twist, from the Verde Parma to burgers, pizzas to scrumptious kids’ meals, and a selection of salads for those in search of a smaller feed. If you’re joining us just for some drinks or a coffee, our lighter selections are made to satisfy your palate and keep you nourished until meal time. Or if you’re up for something a little different, our smoker menu is ready to please – select from tender and juicy lamb shoulder, tender beef brisket or delicate pork belly, all cooked to perfection.

Very ‘Verde’

Our essence is in the name. Verde – meaning ‘green’ in Italian – runs through every part of our establishment. From the colour scheme throughout our branding to our signature decor styling and items to the fresh and tasty ingredients in our meals and how we procure our goods.

Beyond the colour, a sustainable approach to hospitality is one of our most pronounced values. It serves us to ensure we play a harmless part in this chain because it’s how we can ensure we look after the land that provides while protecting a future that we can all enjoy. We’ve built thoughtful processes and relationships to ensure we remain as sustainable as possible through the food and drinks that we serve to our customers and how we recycle our business’s materials.

Casual Get-Togethers to Large Functions: We Have Room for Every Occasion


Catch-ups have never been so delectable. Whether you’re after a light meal or just a coffee, you’ll have our ample alfresco or indoor space to choose from and a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy.


If natural-light-filled spaces, refined restaurants, pub meals, and a vibrant atmosphere sounds like your thing, bringing your group down for lunch at Verde will be a time to remember. Our experienced chefs design our lunch menu to keep our meals exciting and delicious.


As night sets in, you can select between traditional indoor seating but with a modern, metropolitan twist or enjoy the beauty of the Aussie outdoors with our festoon lighting transforming our terrace into an ambient oasis. Then, you can get stuck into our delicious, expertly-prepared restaurant meals!
