After dining my way through Hobart for 4 days, this definitely topped the dinners and my partner agreed. This was after dining at Frank, Henry Jones, and Source... Fast efficient and friendly service, just the right amount of pretentiousness. A wide selection of wines and beers, and decent wine by the glass. Definitely worth booking ahead for a special night.

Second visit, with different sized groups. Staff of the restuarant were most helpful and recommended the progressive menu on both occasions - wise choice as it turned out. A wide selection of dishes resulted, with the gnocchi voted the pick.

Dropped in for a warming coffee and got seduced by the cakes! Nice variety of cake and pastries, amazing lemon curd doughnuts! Lovely setting, great service.

we had breakfast here recently on a weekend trip to hobart. We had dined here before for dinner and really enjoyed that so we gave brekkie a go. We really enjoyed our meal - I had the Smolt special, black pudding, eggs and salsa verde. My wife had the potted eggs - both were great as was the service

We had lunch here after reading about it in a magazine. We had octopus with crispy kale and a terrine. Both were light and delicious. The house beer was very nice.

We only ate doughnuts and amaretti biscuits with coffee here but they were so very delicious. Great retro decor and great service
