Our food was delicious, the wine list is excellent as was the service. The oyster tasting plate went down a treat as did the goose liver parfait - very light and creamy. The octopus was by far the best we have tasted in a long time. Lamb and fish were also delicious. Believe it or not, we made room for... More

Had breakfast here on Sunday morning. Trade was brisk but we were served quite quickly and the food (quinoa porridge for me, baked omelette for partner) were delicious and well prepared, serves were very generous!

For breakfast this place can't be beaten. We tried to book on mother's day for breakfast to no avail so we rocked up early and suggested we would be in and out quickly. The staff were accommodating and we were not disappointed. Loved all of the meals.

We had a big group dinner there with fixed menu. Overall the food was good and interesting , and plenty of it. The major problem was, due to size of the group we were in "the atrium" which was really like an entry foyer into an office building. It was over lit and had no atmosphere which was a shame....

We were lucky to be able to get an early booking on Saturday night and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal. There were a lot of tapas style meals on the menu, which we tend to avoid, so did find the main course menu fairly limited.

Really good meal! Classy modern cuisine with good wine list by the glass. Nice atmosphere and definitely one of the best restaurants in Hobart. Will be back

We called in on chance and got a table without a booking. It turned out to be a busy place. However the staff were great , we had a small child with us and they coped well with his and our needs. Good service and helpful waiting staff who were able to fully explain the dishes. Between us we had... More

It wasn't a good start - the front of the house barista was extremely rude to us when we enquired about seating. The atmosphere wasn't great - it was way too noisy and we didn't get our drinks till we almost finished our meals. When we enquired if they had forgotten our drinks we got a cool "oh we're so...

Great space, nice ambiance. Too many ingredients in each dish that didn't make sense and poor presentation (my entree looked like cat food). Overall food average.
