    Loved it last time. Seafood degus not value for money. $15 more for 2 oysters which appeared to have same (?) or very similar sauce to the roti. Beef cheek excellent, slaw uninspired this time. Was a special occasion for my son's 18 with two lifelong friends and I hoped for more after our terrific experience Apr 28th. Terribly expensive for what we got. Sorry

    Loved it. Perfect for a small extended family gathering. food cooked and presented with love. Staff helpful and pleasant. Fresh local ingredients and a percentage of income supports local charities and social projects. Spatchcock was cooked perfectly. Would book again next time we are in Hobart.

    Food was awesome. Atmosphere was fantastic there. We have ordered $ 80pp banquet. Lots of seafood and good combination of side dish. Staffs are friendly and helpful. We were a bit late to start ordering food and there was a second seating after us. They didn’t unwelcome us at all and arrange us a new table to make sure we can enjoy our meal with enough time. Such a wonderful night for us.

    Chose the set menu vegetarian option for $65 pp. Poor value for money. A taste (1 piece each) of 4 small share entrees, rice, slaw and a vege curry. Certainly not $325 worth of food for 5 people. It was tasty but highly overpriced. Stick with the select your own share plates. Cocktails were very nice.

    We have visited Dana eating house many times. On this occasion we had friends from Sydney with us , and they also absolutely loved the experience-food and service . From the greetings at the door , to our main service person, everyone at Dana has a welcoming, sincere and caring attitude to all customers . We had 10 different dishes, and as always , the flavour and presentation is amazing. Thank you to the kitchen for infusing so much care and love into each and every plate. Thank you so much! You are all fabulous humans !
