Modern Australian
Grain of the silos offers a hand chosen selection of Tasmania’s finest produce, prepared by Head Chef Thomas Pirker to form an approachable modern menu that allows the character of the local ingredients to be the star, as well as the inspiration. Grain’s Food Director Massimo Mele, who is consulting alongside Thomas, has used his prodigious experience and knowledge of the island states offerings to guide the seasonal menu.
Accompanying Chef Thomas’s menu is a considered wine list, and while it tips its hat to a selection of mainland and international picks, the list takes the majority fill from handpicked local selections.
The restaurant itself, located inside converted grain silos, displays unique features drawing on the buildings industrial and agricultural past. Featuring luxe, earthy tones, reclaimed timber with contemporary settings, this natural style extends from the design to the delivery of service.

Felt the dinner menu is overpriced especially when you have to buy sides. Waited an extremely long time for our main which was then only warm when arriving to table. Oviously our order was overlooked as the waiter apologised for the delay when we were paying. I have eaten here for lunch prior and had no problem. Disappointed as we were guests at the hotel and we were celebrating my husband's birthday

Very good food but a bit too much fat in the steak. Service not great - we weren't asked how we'd like our steak cooked and when the wine was presented at our table we expected more than "2 glasses of red". Overall a nice experience!

Food was really disappointing. Market fish was served swimming in sauce. Not a lot of flavour and served on a small smear of mashed potato. The dessert was served cold and was like a dry tasteless brownie rather than a warm chocolate torte. I was very disappointed and embarrassed as it was a meal to celebrate my partners exciting news. We will not be returning. Others have mentioned also that although the service is always good and the setting is lovely, unfortunately the food is sadly lacking. The price would indicate exciting dishes full of flavour and clever combinations but this is definitely not the case.

The atmosphere is lovely. The service was great. The food was ok. The beef burger was quite bland. Average to be honest. You almost need to sell your young to buy a glass of wine. Overall, ok but probably wont rush back.

Was expecting to be able to choose from a menu for breaky too. As I don't each much the $30 was not really good for me. Was nice but the option to select Soemthing off the menu that was smaller would have been good. Didn't realise buffet was the only option.

Breakfast selection for $29pp was poor, quite a few items had run out and not replaced. Chef had unhygienic habits putting hands in raw meat products and then other ingredients when making omelettes . Plates were dirty and difficult to get clean plates. Poor value for money and disappointing. We were celebrating a special occasion and venue was a let down for us.. won’t recommend to others.

Great meals, great service, friendly staff.
Came to the silos for my mums birthday lunch just like last year and it was as good as I remember. Everyone was happy with what they got (especially since I was paying) and I'm glad I could get a Jack and Coke to go with my porterhouse.
Bill came out cheaper than I expected which was great and everyone left with a smile, even my mum who had ran the marathon that day.

We thought the food was very average, a breakfast buffet that you could get at any budget hotel. No barista coffee in the price, no fresh squeezed juice, not much variety of ingredients for the omelettes. For the price we expected some wow. We've had an outstanding lunch at Grain earlier this year so we were expecting an amazing buffet.

A nice menu and the food was very good, the location is great, the decore is lovely and the male waiter was very friendly and helpful but the 2 female wait staff were very unfriendly and rude and it seemed like any question etc. was a bother to them.

Another wonderful night at Grains of the Silos. Only thing that I have also noticed the last two times I’ve dined. The room is way too cold and I find I need to keep my winter jacket on.

Food was fantastic... Quality menu with plenty of options. We considered the feed me menu but decided on Al a carte as one of our group really wanted the mushroom entree which I believe was really good. Calamari was delicious as were the scallops. Our mains were wonderful... (Ricotta cavatelli was amazing) and all beautifully presented. We were a little disappointed with desserts... Nicely presented and very tasty but lacking any wow factor. Service was great - friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely be back.

A new and exciting addition to the Launceston dining scene. Dined for lunch and had a varied choice on the menu as well a a daily special. Reasonable view overlooking the park and onwards to the existing Seaport. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable and I would recommend to friends

A very pleasant evening out; nice and quiet, easy to hold a conversation, food was really, really good, as you would expect for this price, but I'm told the squid was a little chewy. The truffled mushrooms were yum.
