Seventeen floors above the River Derwent, the Point Revolving Restaurant at Wrest Point radiates ‘special occasion.’ When the doors open and the view unfolds, you’ll understand why The Point has been a backdrop of memorable dining 40 years over.

This Hobart restaurant is committed to people, produce and place. Our French inspired menu weaves some of Tasmania’s finest ingredients into a dining experience punctuated with theatre and flair. Like the sound of Crepe Suzettes cooked at your table with flair by our waiter staff?

The food was fantastic. But
We had many different servers at the start and this resulted in allergy advice not being communicated properly. Our main server seemed to disregard us through most of the evening and in general was not very friendly.

The experience of high tea on a beautiful day overlooking Hobart was very pleasant.

We had a sensational meal (and wines) at the Point Revolving Restaurant. Our waiter Julian was fantastic, he had a fun personality while being caring and helpful. We weren’t as keen on the other waiter who took our order, who was kinda dour and didn’t smile once. The food was awesome, the wine selection (and one of our all time favs) was also awesome. There wasn’t much to not like, it was a fantastic meal, with a fantastic wine and a fantastic waiter.

Thoroughly enjoyed the choice and the quality.

I hadn’t thought a head to say it was a Borthday celebration, but a little treat at the end made the night even more special.

Its a dining experience. Wonderful ambience, exceptional view and impeccable service. I was delighted to see that they still have Crepes Suzette on the menu, expertly flambed at your table. Well done. After 40 years, you continue to deliver.

High Tea at the revolving restaurant was lovely, service and food was great. Our waiter Mana, paid us just the right attention and made our experience very worth while. The view from the 17th floor is amazing. Over all a great experience.

Disappointing - from the phone conversation at reservations to the service to the food. There are so many amazing restaurants with incredible friendly thoughtful service and outstanding food I think you need to revisit where you need to be competitively.

Had a beautiful afternoon for my mother in-laws Birthday. Everything was spot on! Our waitresses were a 12/10 they went beyond our expectations. Food was of a high standard, only thing we would have liked different was to maybe have a sausage roll to replace one of the rolls! Not a negative though!! Thanks for a wonderful afternoon 🤗

We loved our experience at the Revolving Restaurant. The service from all the staff we had contact with was prompt and friendly. The food was delicious and plated beautifully and the river views on a winters night were so lovely. We will definitely return and have already recommended the restaurant to others. Our thanks to all of those who made our 20th anniversary a very memorable occasion.

Risotto was outstanding, however fish main course was overly infused with fennel and our guest unable to eat her meal. Waiter was excellent - professional yet personable. Remains a favourite restaurant for special occasions.

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!”
