I came here twice during a recent trip to Hobart, once for lunch and once for dinner. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and good value for money. Their chicken schnitzel on mash with broccolini was brilliant after a cold day exploring Hobart. Will visit again on my next trip across!

I really enjoyed the Chicken and Prawn Laksa but I was less than impressed by the staff. Inattentive and absorbed in socialising with each other. I did not like the way they present themselves with the 'free dress'. High heels and scarves that fall too close to my food are not suitable for waitressing. I could hardly distinguish staff from...

We had lunch here and were delighted with the service and quality of the food. Our server gave us tastings of wines to help us to choose form a very healthy wine list. Definitely worth a visit.

Popped in here for a feed and a couple of drinks during the Big Sing Festival of Voices in Hobart, so consequently, it was very busy. The service struggled a bit to keep up with everyone's needs, and we noticed a couple of people leaving because service was slow. We had a few of the pizzas, and they were pretty... More

Wonderful wine selection, atmospheric bar. Well heated despite the cold Hobart winter. A little noisy, fast drink service. Prices average for a fancy type bar.

We all enjoyed the food, the range was good and the waitress was very helpful in sending something back that wasn't right. The thing that let's this place down is the firm no split bills policy. Who carries cash these days? and what difference does it make if the bill is paid by a few people as long as the... More

Food was really nice but was pricey, so were the drinks. Was also abit too loud, seems to be the singles pick up joint, not really for families.

Stopped in here for a light bite to eat - pulled pork stuff olive "delish" croquettes "yum" pork belly tapas "tender" and buffalo wings "spicy". The waiting staff are absolutely delightful and you could tell that this was all home made and not some "chain". Would definitely go back.

Great place to catch up with the girls for a drink and bite to eat. The bar staff just seem to have it all going on. They were fabulous. Gave desciptions of different drink choices - even provided taste test. Waiters knew menu and answered our questions. Laksa was the thickest laksa I've ever had. Way too gluggy and heavy.... More

I didn't eat here but it was a great place to drink after dinner. The bar is extensive and the bartender was so awesome. Showed me three different scotches (well, Tasmanian single malt whiskeys) until he found the perfect one for me. When I inquired about one of the beers, he poured me a little taster without missing a beat.... More
