Worthwhile unique experience, but pricey

Even after sharing our disappointment at the meal (before completion), no effort was made to retrieve the outcome. No redeeming feature - over priced. Will not return, nor recommend.

I have now been to Ethos on two occasions approx 6 months apart. Both times the service was exceptional and the food was prepared and presented uniquely - not to mention flavoursome! The menu is designed in a way that you are shown a list of ingredients and choose how many courses you would like. They then prepare the food... More

Degustation type menu, reasonably priced, with optional matching wines. Arguably the best meal I have ever eaten!

The location is rather different - down a short laneway in an older part of the city, and it would appear that it may have originally been stables. The staff were wonderful, the degustation menu was extremely varied, and beautifully presented. A most pleasant evening.

Really interesting and inventive food, Outstanding preparation, excellent service. The wine matching menu is not a cheap option but outstanding value nevertheless. Some of the combinations - they change daily because the menu changes daily are totally unexpected but totally successful. This is the goods!

Ethos was recommended to us by our hotel and we were not disappointed. We walked down an odd little alley into a boxed vegetable and herb garden , through which we entered the reasturant. We were quickly seated at a lovely clean wooden table and and the tasting menu explained. Once we had agreed to it the first course arrived... More

This is a typical Hobart experience. Very special atmosphere,nice drink and very good food. We had fresh fish and veggies,cooked at perfection. I really recommend you try this place as so may restaurants in Hobart have so so food. The service was slow but no rush when you are in hollydays.

We had the offered designation menu, which was served beautifully and the flavours were excellent. The staff were friendly but service was little slow. We ate on a Friday night at 7.15pm, so service was pretty good for peak time. The wine and beer list is great and by the end of the meal we felt that we had a... More

Having grown up in The Elizabeth Town Hotel as a 3 year old kid through to 18 I've been involved in the hospitality industry a long time. I love my career and I believe I've got a fairly good idea about what things work & what doesn't. I've never seen a smoother, better oiled machine in my life than Ethos... More
