Amazing dinner!

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner and would recommend to anyone who wishes to have good food in Launceston. Will be returning often.

This is a great place for lunch and dinner, in a lovely setting on the North Esk River. The menu is varied and there is always something for everyone. Don has bought this Restaurant back to life with his beautiful asian flavours. Great to go after a hard day at work

AVOID!!!!! Worst experience! Terrible staff that have no idea how to match the prices they're charging! Do yourself a favor and go 5 minutes down the road to hallams where the food is top notch, service excellent, and staff properly trained.

Three of our group had Soft seared Petuna salmon loin, white miso sauce, shredded prawn/wakame salad, ginger butter mash/lime. My Crisp slow roasted Scottsdale pork loin w/ apple/mint, celeriac mash, was... More

We were sat next to a table of women on girls night out, we couldn't hear ourselves. Finally we asked to be moved. My husband had the mud sirloin which was grisly and I had the blade which was tasty but not tender and a lot of meat so could only eat half. The sauerkraut was the highlight. For the... More

'Lost' our booking and then did nothing to fix situation! Told us to wait in bar - waiting for an hour and a half and nothing! No one came near us and no table. Staff were RUDE and unhelpful. Ruined our night. Would NOT recommend to anyone!

We came to Launceston for the football on the weekend of Aug 27th to 30th and wandered down to the Mud Bar and Restaurant for an afternoon drink while relaxing by the marina. The restaurant is on the ground floor of the Peppers Seaport hotel where we were staying and the decor is contemporary with a relaxed ambience. We had... More

So sad that Mel is no longer with us, but her vibe (and training) is still evident in this lovely restaurant. I asked about the style of the batter for the fish and the waiter checked with the chef - yes, it would be tempura style. It was magic - I ate every mouthful as it was light and almost... More

Love dining at Mud. My son ate off the children's dinner menu and had wonderful fish and chips. I had the salmon and it was divine. We went on a sunday night and the place was full. Great to see a restaurant in Launceston with some atmosphere.

Although I have eaten meals here quite a lot my friends and I more often than not just go for drinks and the bar snacks menu! They are SO yummy and always changing too! Their newest Arrancini - Pork, Fennel and caramelised Apple was to die for! Lamb ribs and seafood fritters delicious too. Wine list always top notch. A... More
