Fantastic share menu with delicious food and just right portion size. I believe value for money is excellent in a relaxed atmosphere and very good table service. Music playing is a good fit for the setting and not so loud that you can't have a conversation.
Overall I look forward to dining here again for my third time. We have now had both the lunch and dinner and both are equally pleasurable experiences.

Dined here at Lunch time, (after midday) the place was quiet and there were only a couple of other people there. We unfortunately had to wait way too long for our meals which was unacceptable considering the place was virtually empty. Afterwards, we waited a long time to get the dessert menu. We were in full view of the bar and the staff were all just having a laugh and a chat and I eventually had to call out to a waiter and ask for the dessert menu after waiting for what seemed like an eternity. The food was good, but just found the staff to be very inattentive and the service was slow.

This is certainly not how a visit to Geronimo should be. Thank you again for letting us know so we can rectify this problem.

We were in Launceston for a wedding. Loved the shared plate choice. Everything we picked was delicious.
Would love the recipe for the prawn dumplings and beef cheek ravioli.

The food was excellent, although we made the mistake of ordering too much. Our group would have been happy with the five share plates, without the two large mains that we also ordered. My advice would be to just order the five tapas dishes and wait and see if you need to order more. My complaint is with the price. This place is already expensive, and it was not until we’d ordered that we were informed of a 15 per cent holiday surcharge. It was not until we went to pay that we found out there was a ‘bottle service charge’ of $15 per bottle. The meal ended up costing $560 for the four of us, and frankly was not worth it.

We had a wonderful position overlooking the pretty park opposite it. Look forward to our next visit. Thanks Geronimo team, it was a fabulous experience.

We are travelling through Tasmania on our honeymoon and choosing great food and dining experiences was high on our list of must dos.

We researched most of the restaurants during our trip and booked in advance. These included top restaurants in Hobart and on the east Coast.

Our trip to Geronimo was a last minute decision due to a change in travel plans and it was without doubt our best dining experience to date!
The atmosphere was fantastic, the food exceptional, but best of all was the service
Timothy and Lachy went out of their way to provide a complete dining experience... it was such a treat to dine here.
We had the 5 small plates including the croquettes, cauliflower, beef ravioli, butternut pumpkin fritters and checked and prawn dumplings

Lachy recommended some fantastic wines and Timothy spent time recommending the menu

What a fantastic place! We cannot wait to plan another trip back to Tasmania, landing in Launceston first this time so that we can go to Geronimo again on our first and final day

Thank you!

One of the party was unwell and the night had to be called short. She was unwell before we arrived so we know the restaurant was definitely not at fault. Even so, the food we had was incredible, the service impeccable and when we left, the staff were far more concerned with our party’s wellbeing and provided a significant discount and let us know they love to see us back. We already have reservations to go back and finish the meal.

As we were a bit early we sat at the bar & were served by the very attentive bar person. The whole space had a wonderful ambience. The options on the menu were excellent & the portions, especially the ‘large plate’ were very generous...for me not to be able to finish off a plate just doesn’t happen, but 5 pieces of Pork Belly between the two of us, after the ‘small plates’ defeated me!! Every choice was beautifully presented & tasted amazing & there is an excellent wine selection from the racks on the side wall. The staff were attentive & friendly. A very memorable evening & we’ll definitely go back next time we are in Launceston.

Absolutely hate the 3 options for meals and would much prefer the freedom to order what we choose, not what is dictated by the different tiers.
Also we were not told that there was wine by the bottle (apparently you can chose a wine and pay corkage). We ended up ordering by the glass which was limited. Have been to Geronimo 4 times before and enjoyed, so our latest experience was disappointing.

I felt the grilled prawn which is a starter, lacked flavour. The wagu beef fat fried potato was too salty which when brought to the waiter's notice he offered us free salad which was a good gesture. But unfortunately the leafy salad had a apple cider dressing which ended up not complementing the dish. But overall the service was really good. Thanks
