We went to the Empire Hotel for lunch in April, great cafe with good food, good service as well. The bar is lovely very intimate and the staff are very friendly. The stand out for us was chatting with Bec, lots of laughs and had lots of local knowledge. Deloraine and the surrounding areas are a must if your visiting... More

Local produce, lovingly prepared and presented in front of a warming fire. Just what you need on a cold and windy night! Welcoming, attentive and helpful hostess guides you through the local wines and daily specials. Meals presented well. Full of flavour and balanced with autumnal vegetables. Lamb cutlets were so tender and tasty. Highly recommended when travelling between Devonport... More

My husband and I had a lovely evening at the Empire Hotel. We enjoyed drinks at the large timber bar in the pub side of the hotel before moving to the Cycles restaurant to have dinner. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and spot on. We couldn't fault our evening and walked back to our accommodation feeling... More

During our stay in Deloraine we were delighted to dine at The Empire Hotel-everyone was so friendly & the atmosphere was so warm & inviting. Lots of variety on the menu & on the first night my strict diet requirements were adhered to brilliantly. However, on the next time we dined there a thoughtless & unnecessary comment from the kitchen... More

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
