Always good and reasonably priced

I've been here many times and never had a bad meal. Good and quick service. Drinks at bar prices - you buy the drinks from the bar, and table service for the food. What is good is that with a group you can pay as you leave for each meal rather than a table bill. All the meals are great... read more

One of my favourite entrees in Hobart is the Duke's garlic Woodfired Pizza, yum! This restaurant has a lovely ambience and the waiters/waitresses are always friendly, helpful, attentive, really great service which helps make the overall experience a really fantastic one. The servings are generous, just the right amount, steaks were great, the pies a favourite among several, as were... More

These guys know how to make pizza, I have been here twice and both times with the same result, great beers on tap and by the bottle, a nice wine selection, and great service. Then you order the pizza and the day gets a lot better, I was with business colleagues this time and they were not that keen to... More

A pleasant night out at the Duke. But what is this establishment. It is caught in a pub/restaurant divide. The staff were generally friendly but unsure of what they were there to do. The waitress was friendly but dropped the menus with a "there you go". Not rude just unsure how to proceed. Trained? Everyone knows how to serve a... More

Both my friend and I ordered a margherita pizza . The pizza was tasty and nothing to complain about. The service there was pretty average. The waitress asked if we wanted pepper, and I love cracked pepper so said yes please, however she proceeded to just dump a pepper shaker on our table. Okay then. We both couldn't finish our... More

I have eaten here often and have never had a bad meal. The prices are good and there is a good variety, from wood fired pizzas, salads to full sized meals of steak, chicken and fresh fish. All are cooked with great spices, sauces and not what you would cook at home during the week. The wine list is good... More
