I was really looking forward to eating at this locavore restaurant and had booked it for our last night of our Tasmanian holiday. I liked the concept - a 6 or 8 course changing degustation based on what was available locally or grown in-house. I liked the setting, the serving ware, just not the food! Out of the 6 courses...

A special evening with my daughter and niece lived up to the expectations I had from previous visits. The food was amazing with tastes that you would not create at home and enough to actually taste them! The pork shoulder braised in milk was to die for!!! The staff were fun and appropriate to the banter we gave them. I... More

This is a restaurant where the amount of time it takes for someone to run through the ingredients on your plate is greater than the amount of time it takes for you to finish the food on that plate. The concept is daily specials based on fresh local produce which the chef has sourced for the day, with no set... More

The 6 course degustation dinner we had at Ethos was nothing short of outstanding. Every course was a surprise of local ingredients and flavour combinations that excited the palate with every mouthful. In fact it's likely the ingredients have just been picked from the herb gardens you pass as you enter the restaurant. We wanted more, but were completely satisfied... More

We had booked Ethos for 6 people for a 40th birthday. Unfortunately, an accident meant that 2 people couldn't attend at the very last moment. The staff were so lovely about the last minute change and showed genuine concern for our friends - giving us the option to cancel the whole evening if we wished. However, 4 of us went... More

An experience not to be missed in Hobart. Put the food to one side for a moment; the staff had deep knowledge of the occasion, were confident in presentation and cared for you to be in their dining room. First class service without being intrusive or pompous. Then came the food and wine - outstanding. One of the best dining... More

We had the 6 course degustation with matching wines. Had an amazing night. Food was delicious - octopus, lamb to die for and my favourite duck and quail eggs. I would return anytime. My friend and I requested certain foods to be excluded (eg seafood) and no problems accommodating our request. Wines complimented food well. Did not feel rushed and... More

This would have to be one of Hobart's best kept secrets. The food was outstanding and did an amazing job of showcasing local Tasmanian talent. The service was also brilliant, warm and accommodating and very well informed about what was being served. Really liked the printout of our meal and wines. I'll be back for sure.

Amazing experience last Saturday night. We opted for the full eight courses and matching wines and it was outstanding. Loved the printed list at the end of our meal showing everything we'd eaten and drunk. Service was attentive, informative and friendly.
