Dining at this restaurant is a must while visiting the NW coast in Tasmania .
Food and service were amazing. Excellent value for money. Far better than dining in any other restaurant from Launceston to Stanley. Brilliant experience. Location +

The food is definitely outstanding. We've tried just about everything on the a la carte menu, and so we often go for the specials, and Special is what they always turn out to be!

Be aware of the $20 sparkling water, which they may offer on arrival but don't tell you about until the bill arrives!

The ambience here varies. Sometimes, there are large parties present which generate a lot of noise. Tables near the windows tend to be best to keep away from the noisy customers.

The wine list is very good with some excellent, old, fine, wines at sensible prices.

All told, the best place in Burnie for aussie-style food. Fine dining like this costs money, but it's worth it.

Great service and food. Anne gave us a warm welcome. Staff are well trained. My filet steak was cooked to perfection. We had a 5:30 booking and had plenty of time to have an unrushed dinner before heading to a show starting at 8:00.

We loved our meals, though for three of us, who are very intolerant to chilli, there were quite a few plates from the entree & mains menu we couldn’t choose. However, the dessert menu was super, & the coffee creme brûlée was delicious!
The conversation noise level was tolerable, but when we arrived (at 6:00pm) the music was very loud, it was great, soothing, & made dining a pleasure. When it is so intrusive it interferes with table conversation, there’s no pleasure at all.

We had the lamb and the pork and both were absolutely delectable!!! The lamb and pork just melted in the mouth! For those that love plating, they were definitely food for the eyes as well!

For dessert, we had the dessert platter because we always want to try everything and it was delicious and very pretty!

A little on the price side but definitely worth it!

This was a great meal, the calamari was tender and sweet, the lamb presented 3 ways was an absolutely delightful dish, again very tender. The Special fish dish was tasty. Thank you - it was worth every penny!

Trying to have an intimate meal while a large function is taking place at the same time in the same room did not make things as pleasant as it could have been.
Wait staff need to be trained better to match the standard of the food.
Would still return if in the area again as food was excellent but when you are paying city prices you expect the whole package.

I come here every year on my annual trip to Burnie. The food is always amazing. The service this time was not as good as usual but I think the waiter was possibly new and learning. There was also a birthday party happening so it was a bit noisier than usual. However the food was delicious and we had a wonderful evening. I will be back next year.

We had a horrible table squashed between two large parties of diners. However the food was delicious (always is). Best place to dine in Burnie. We just were unlucky with our table position.

Food was excellent, quite timely and great value.
