Had dinner here with my family (including our two month old son) after reading up on positive reviews. Was not disappointed at all! Had oysters for entree which were fresh and delicious. The steaks: eye fillet, scotch and wagyu were all cooked to perfection. Juicy, succulent and full of flavour! The accompanying potato galette itself was wonderful. Had to try... More

The food here was incredible. The best we had in Launceston by far. The location was convenient and service was second to none.

We were blown away by the simplicity yet tasteful dishes!! Well worth the experience. Be sure to book yourselves a table at this superb venue in... More

Partner and I went here for dinner, shared the pork belly entree and both had the eye fillet and it was all cooked perfectly. Service was fabulous, the staff were very friendly. Will definitely be back next time we are in Launceston :)

Sitting in a converted butchers with lovely character, the service was excellent along with great steaks. Prices are a tad high compared to other Launceston restaurants, but I will return.

The food is excellent without pretention. The service is pleasant and attentive. Fairly expensive but not overly so and worth it anyway!

We have been to the Black Cow on a few occasions since it appeared a few years ago. We are not frequent visitors as it is somewhat expensive if you're just looking for a nice meal. However, the food and the service are always very good. Professional front of house staff who are attentive without being intrusive and who know... More

I think we got the last available on a busy Friday night but we must compliment the staff on the high degree of excellent and attentive service. We shared the Wagu scotch fillet which was cooked pink and was perfect. Our second visit and it is highly recommended to all interstate visitors

Seriously good service, seriously good wine, seriously good food, seriously good setting. We've eaten at a lot of really good places and now Black Cow is going on the list. The oysters at the start were perfect, and the steaks were cooked perfectly. For the wines, just tell them what you like, what your budget is and let them choose... More
