We stopped in Deloraine for some lunch as we had been driving for a few hours and needed a break. We were so glad that we stopped here! The setting was very comfortable and the food was so delicious. It was very clean and the staff were lovely. This short stop was definitely well worth it.

The recently re-opened Empire Hotel was a highlight of our holiday in Tasmania. It is a traditional building with high ceilings and 19th century charm. The restoration features beautiful local timbers, and the bar is a delight. We ate in the attached Cycles restaurant and we were well pleased by the range of dishes offered in the menu. Try the...

This was one of the best meals I've had. I had the vegetarian risotto and the wild mushrooms were mouth wateringly tasty, the quail was also fantastic The starters were just as good. We'll definitely be back for more. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the large upstairs dining room was atmospheric and kept lovely and warm with a... More

The restaurant was recommended by the good folk at Bonney's Inn and it did not disappoint. The scotch fillet was cooked as requested and the risotto was very tasty. The pecan pie was delicious and was accompanied by an excellent bottle of wine. A fabulous meal at a reasonable price. Will definitely be back if we visit Deloraine again.

Went to visit some friends and went for dinner in the restaurant at the empire. Food was just amazing! Fresh, good serves and definitely something different! Quail with wild mushrooms risotto is not something you find everyday and it was just a perfect combination. Chef obviously knows what he's doing. Reasonable price for the quality of the food. Would go... More

We had a great time staying at this hotel for three days just after the New Year in 2015. It is well positioned for access to the nearby Caves and World Heritage area and right in the center of the town. It is also a good base to use for bike rides in the quiet and scenic back roads around... More

Table for four on Valentines Day was no problem to them. The romantic tables were situated in another area so ordinary folk could enjoy dinner out too. My steak was cooked perfectly and the veg selection was delicious. My partner's fish was not cooked the way she requested but they made no fuss about correcting this. Our friends ordered the...
