This was a gift to us and after being there once before in 1976 it was still beautiful
The meals were superb and the waiters were amazing and very friendly. My meal was cooked at our table.
Can’t wait to come back again.

Great meal. Great staff. Decore is out of date but this didn't effect my experience at all. If I was to be picky, the music was a little louder than what I can deal with however, the experience was memorable and the waiter (Julian) was engaging and informative.

It's a great place to celebrate any occasion not just the fact that your Barbershop Chorus placed 7th in all of Australia at the competition downstairs earlier in the evening! Food is always top notch and the presentation exceeds the description on the menu. Staff are eloquent and knowledgeable and unobtrusive but it would be nice if they don't assume a 'special occasion" is just a birthday. On this particular night with clear Hobart skies and a full moon the view was quite possibly the best in Hobart. And I love the way the tables are not packed together giving you a sense of intimacy and space. Well done team.

This was a celebration with six friends including a birthday “girl”. The lunch was everything we had hoped for and it was enhanced by the unobtrusive service and attention. We were not rushed which enhanced the social interaction. To be greeted by name on arrival was a surprise as we were not announced, how did The Maître know?

As General McArthur once famously said “I shall return!”

The food at The Point was sublime. The flavours were complex, but went together so well. We were pleasantly surprised by quality. Meals were also a good size, not too small like many fine dining restaurants.

The female attendant on shift for 2:30 pm high tea on Friday 3 May was excellent. We had two 5 year old girls and she was so sweet to them. It was one of the girls birthdays and the attendant brought out a ice cream treat and sung happy birthday to her. She was just lovely

The staff went above and well beyond expectations. The food was excellent quality. My only criticism is that it was a quiet night but we were all crammed in next to each other, it would be a better ambience if there was a table left between each occupied table.

My first impression was not good as the menu looked very pedestrian with little flair. However, the food was cooked and presented to perfection and my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The ambience of the Revolving Restaurant has been enhanced by the relatively recent upgrade and it is still the best outlook of any restaurant in Tasmania.

My Husband, Son & I had a gorgeous dinner @ The Point Revolving Restaurant on Tuesday 9th April 2019. We were celebrating our 20 year wedding anniversary & our waiter Michael was terrific. Other waiter who took our order & cooked Prawns @ our table was lovely too.
We were made feel so welcome from the time we arrived till we left by all the staff. It was truely a most memorable evening with a fabulous view, a night we are going to remember forever. We are going to have fond memories of this restaurant.
Would highly recommend this to everyone.

One of the best dinners we have ever enjoyed together. Professional but also very friendly service throughout, and the food was incredible. Though it was a special occasion in a very nice restaurant, we were easily satisfied by the amount of food, and the creation of flavours on the plate were very well done.

The highlights were the duck, lamb, pork belly, and the strawberries and chocolate fondant desserts.

A great time to dine is around 7 - 8pm where you'll see the sun come down and the lights shine from Sandy Bay and the surrounds below. Absolutely beautiful.

Great views and service great But it wasn't busy and with all the room, it would of been a better experience if the guest were not seated so close as we could hear the whole conversation of the table next to us and it was very unpleasant. With only seven tables in use would of be nice the be a bit more spread out. Then bunch together.

The oysters here were to die for ! The service was brilliant and the atmosphere was elegant yet comfortable. All the flavours went so well together from the pork belly to the lamb and gnocchi followed by the brûlée and chocolate fondant for dessert. Amazing. Do yourself a favour and visit this restaurant, you won’t be disappointed!

We went for a birthday celebration and the host welcomed me by saying "Happy Birthday' I had high expectations and they were met. The food was beautifully prepared and tasted great. The small extras such as the amuse buoche and chocolates made the evening. Also the waiters came and sang Happy Birthday for me.
