Food drinks and ambiance were amazing, the wait we had was lovely but when clearing our table between courses for our degustation he would take our plates and set back down our dirty knife and fork, there was no explanation for any of our food or wine, he may have been new or it may have been a cultural thing, but other than that we had a lovely evening!

Unfortunately would not recommend unless significant changes are made.
Wine and water was spilt as it is was poured with no offer to clean up. Waiter reached acros food to replace used cutlery?
Food was well presented, duck enjoyable, pork dry as was addition to the brisket. Portion size small with no option to add vegetable side dishes

Great food, especially the scallop ceviche and octopus terrine. Service was very good too, just needs a bit of music to improve the ambiance and atmosphere. Overall very, very good.

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.

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.
