The service was top notch. We were really looked after. However, the food was hit and miss. Some great, some mediocre. For the price, you expect better.

We will always go to the point when in Tasmania. They have refurbished the restaurant and this was A1 the food was lovely although I ordered steak Diane and the sauce was too brown and rich and I wish I had ordered the prawns with coconut rice, all other food ordered were delicious especially the crepe the wine list was very extensive but my overall experience in this restaurant was the fabulous view and the staff. Omg the staff were amazing very very very professional they were so good that my husband tipped them a lot and was happy too. Congratulations the point on hiring wonderful people who did you justice

A great evening to finish out Tassie holiday. The revolving view was a genuine highlight. We booked for an early dinner to see the evening come in. The 3 course dinner really was excellent. Hint: be very hungry! Wine was reasonably priced which was also a pleasant surprise. The staff were friendly and helpful. Will definitely visit again when next in Hobart.

Absolutely fantastic. Yes it is a bit more expensive but oh the overall experience is worth the cost. Impeccable staff service, to die for steak Dianne and pineapple salsa prawns and what a view.
Can’t recommend this experience enough.

I had the good fortune to celebrate my 70th birthday in style with a High Tea in your revolving restaurant. Your staff were great and very attentive and the High Tea was varied and tasty. Your surprise smoking (dry ice) chocolate was delightful. The views of Hobart and the Derwent river were absolutely amazing and that they were constantly changing made it an awesome experience. I would love to have dinner here next time and see the lights of Hobart and its surrounds . Thank you for making this so memorable.

we have ordered the same meal last two times we visited and it was very ordinary this visit.
the steak dianne had so much wistershire sauce this last time it ,and the crepe suzzette was so sour it was dissapointing.
it was a dissapointing meal with great service,both mains and desert were poor compared too our previous visits,ordered the same meal because we loved it,only to be served 2 horrible dishes.
the dish upset my stomach bad, there was so much worstershire in it,last time we ate the same dish here it was lovely.
both dishes were that bad i said i wouldnt be back to my partner,i mean i spent 30 minutes on the toilet straight after dinner,it wasnt what i expected at all.
other than that ,staff where lovely,attentive and our room was very nice.

For TripAdviser
The Point Revolving Restaurant has always been a favourite of mine particularly in the morning with its spectacular views across the mountain, the city and the Derwent River, showcasing Hobart at its best. Despite its 50 years of operation the restaurant still retains its charm, offering a nicely sophisticated service delivered by well-trained and very pleasant staff. The fixed-price breakfast at $32 was very good value given the high quality of the food, its excellent presentation and the choice available for dishes. Service was a little sporadic – dishes weren’t cleared away between courses and some were a little slow to appear. But this was more than offset by the friendly and obliging staff. The food was fairly standard fare for breakfast – head to North Hobart if you want new-wave and more trendy food - but it was very tasty and perfectly appropriate for a long and leisurely breakfast. I’ll always hold The Point Revolving Restaurant as one of those special occasion venues, a place where treasured memories are made and kept (including the loss of a handbag to the revolving floor back in the 70s!).

We had a truly amazing experience at The Point restaurant, from the moment we arrived until we left. The views are truly beautiful full 360 degrees views of Hobart, beautiful menu to chose from and a very extensive wine list. Our wait staff were very friendly and attentive, but gave us sufficient privacy and time between courses. It was a lovely experience to have on our last night in Hobart, would definitely recommend to anyone for a special occasion. We will dine here next time we visit.

Ambience was good, and even though it was only mentioned in passing, waiter remembered that it was my birthday in a few days time and I was presented at the end with a little birthday surprise.

It’s always a pleasure to be able to go for a special occasion, we had a birthday and a wedding anniversary so we were well looked after, only thing is if you have the duck parfait there isn’t enough bread with the dish so the ones that had it had to ask for more in order to finish the dish
We really had a beautiful night, they’re superb up there

The service was a bit underwhelming, in that I ordered a coffee later than the other three at the table. When it didn't arrive about ten minutes later, I asked about it and was brought the lukewarm beverage.

Overrated and very expensive $27.00 dollars for a prawn entree with not all of the food items described in the menu in the dish and only 2 prawns.
Again the main gnocchi dish did not have all of the ingredients described in the menu and again disappointing
