What an amazing place. The feel is amazing. The pre dinner drinks down stairs, a very refine and lovely experience. The degustation with matching wine was sensational. The courses were very diverse and the wines were matched perfectly. Service was excellent however we didn't have the same wait staff the whole night. When the last courses were delivered the atmosphere... More

Wow. So disappointed. This was my favourite restaurant, but tonight i was disappointed and embarrassed to be there. $90 for raw, bland food is inexcusable. Even more so when the waiters (who were fantastic) said 'it gets better after these two dishes'...what a horrid dining experience.

I was quite keen to check Ethos out, as the website looked upmarket and past menus looked pretty interesting. It was a nice looking restaurant, and the staff were very friendly, and the service overall was great. The menu however was awful, and very disappointing considering we paid $90 each per head. Nearly everything that came out was super small... More

Tasmania is renowned for it's amazing produce, and this restaurant is all about showing it off. Our 6 courses were divine. Even better, they cater for dietary requirements. If you're looking for the best of Tasmanian produce, eat here!

Friends recommend this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The six course degustation menu changes daily depending on what produce is available on any given day. The staff are extremely knowledgeable about the dishes on offer and had some great discussions about the food we were eating. The waiter who bought out the kingfish was even able to tell us... More

This place is all about two things: quality local ingredients and bringing you a selected menu of dishes (ie you don't choose). It's a 6 course menu. Staff were wonderful. Food was delicious. Creative uses of ingredients and they could tell you all about the farmers and suppliers that provide it. The only thing that stopped it getting a 5... More

I am blown away by the attention to detail, the knowledge of the staff and the sheer delight in food that this restaurant exemplifies. No question went unanswered. The sommelier was brilliant and completely open to discussing the pros and cons of each wine and how the pairing with food worked. The waitstaff had an extraordinary knowledge of the food... More

Had a fantastic night at Ethos. Walking in past all the garden beds of fresh herbs and veg sets the scene for an evening of produce driven food. We were warmly greeted on arrival, promptly seated, menu'd up and first drink order taken within a matter of minutes. We chose the 6 course degustation without the wine matching. The service...
