Modern Australian

At Old Wharf, we stand in the historical location of former jetties, piers, homes and taverns from where, since the 1800s colourful traders, merchandisers, exporters and explorers have shipped Tassie’s renowned produce across the globe.

Chef Simon Pockran and his team acknowledge this history by creating a menu that celebrates and explores Tasmania’s traditional family dishes. Reimagined and refined, this menu gives the nod to our past while championing our celebrated produce and boutique Tasmania growers.

    Very good menu with lots of local ingredients in food and beverage selection. Very relaxed atmosphere, good service and plenty of explanations of food. The local seafood was excellent and Tasmanian wines a good tasting opportunity. I particularly enjoyed the prawn cocktail entree, the freshest crispest prawns ever.

    From the moment we arrived the service was great. We had a cocktail prior to going into the restaurant and Alex was very welcoming. His service was great. Once entering the restaurant we were professionally greeting and it was acknowledged that it was a birthday celebration for my niece. Mandy who looked after us was amazing, very friendly, caring and knowledgeable about the options. It was great for a special celebration and we really enjoyed it.

    Unfortunately we did not have a good experience. The food was okay but expensive, the staff were great but were run off their feet. They were turning people away cause they simply could not cater for anymore even though they were not full.

    This restaurant misses the mark. While it could be a fine dining establishment given the location there is much to improve on. The Menu has an option called 'Feed Me' which is indicative. Perhaps 'Chef's Inspirations' might deliver a bit more care in presentation and flavour. Staff, while attentive, knew little about the dishes or just placed them down without explanation. On the up side the wine list is reasonable.

    I had the BBQ seafood plate for entree, octopus was tasty but not as tender as I’d hoped as was the squid. Main course - I had the salmon which was beautiful and my husband had the “best beef cheeks he’d ever had”.
