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.

    The location is excellent but the food offerings are limited and not very interesting. Wine list was good. Welcome was warm and friendly but staff seemed a bit absent toward the end of the evening.

    The service was excellent however the dish I ordered was overcooked - BBQ seafood plate - for my liking the calamari was overcooked and the octopus was tough. My friends enjoyed their meals that were different to mine. I had a fun night regardless of the disappointment of the meal.

    Very nice, after many Hobart Resturants we feel quailified to rate the "Old Warf"as outstanding. Very helpful staff (free birthday drink) and the food was second to none. You have to go there.

    Delightful Dinner on Hobarts Waterfront precinct. Staff were very friendly yet professional. The restaurant was nicely spaced which allowed for all of our table to hear each other. Shout out to the young lady who served us and the Supervisor Olive.

    Most enjoyable evening there. Food and service were great in a beaut venue. Entrees were first class. Main menu could possibly do with a few more choices (maybe a winter menu?) but meal choice was plentiful and delicious. We have wanted to try this restaurant for some time and was definitely not disappointed.

    I really enjoyed the atmosphere of Old Wharfe. I had the beef cheeks and they were delicious. The staff were fantastic and very professional. My only disappointment was the online booking. I tried to change the booking as one of the guests couldn't make it. It wouldn't let me change the number of guests. I then tried to phone the restaurant to make the change but there is no direct phone line. But this was only a small issue and overall I really loved my night out.

    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.
