Service was very good, food was average, pub quality food for restaurant prices, entrees very tasty but main course very disappointing. Not your quieter conversation dinner venue, restaurant is VERY noisy.

One of the best dining experiences we’ve had recently - the food was delicious, great wine list, and service was exceptional.

We were promptly seated and introduced to our waiter Amit who immediately made us feel relaxed and welcome. The food menu was enticing and provided a good cross-section of local fare. The drinks menu offered a good selection of local wines and beers. The food was very tasty and creatively displayed reflecting the professionalism and artistry of the chef. A very pleasant evening in the centre of Hobart.

We were very disappointed in our visit. Core restaurant? We just felt like we were at a food court rather than a core restaurant at a 4-star hotel. Staff spent around 10 minutes to get a wipe to clean the table and never changed the correct cutlery for us.
