Wow, what a spectacular setting ! The French lady at the cellar door is pretty nice too - her husband also does a great job in the restaurant. We just felt those Sydney stresses slipping away ....................... The ideal spot for a languid lunch sipping some of Josef's tasty Pinot Gris while gazing out over the beautiful vineyards. Great oysters... More

It had been sometime since we were last here and we were not disappointed. Sitting outside in the sun with good food and wine was just delightful. What a great first experience for interstate travellers just getting off the plane as it is near Launceston Airport

I did my research before going to Tassie and this restaurant just received a ranking in the top 20 in the Australian Food Guide. I wrote to the restaurant a month in advance to tell them I was coming, and would be writing a review. I shouldn’t have bothered. The place was a 10 out of 10 FAIL. What annoys... More

An interesting menu. Many special touches and complicated recipes. Art on a plate. Thoroughly enjoyed all three courses. The only downside of the meal was the main meat part of the dishes were not hot. Guess that's the price for "arty" presentation. Flavours were beautifully combined and interesting. I'd return in a flash regardless. :) Wine tasting hostess (French) was... More

We booked in f here at the start of our 2 week trip to have dinner at the end of our trip. We were really looking forward to it as we’d heard so many good things. Unfortunately we were fairly disappointed. There were almost no lights on outside so you could not see a thing and the atmosphere inside the... More

My friends and I deliberately booked the large outdoor table by the kids area (pirate ship/sandpits/lawn area). The kids were kept entertained while we lovely trout and Pinot Gris. Kids were satisfied with chips (although $$$) and staff also provided them with plain ice creams which was nice. As with the other time I came here there were some issues... More

It really has ... and so has its reputation. Undisputedly the perfect location & food experience for any food loving patron, in the past, the times have changed & the wheel has turned. Over the past 18 months, there's been a huge staff turnover, to the point that there is only one of the originals. This includes Chefs & FOH... More

Apparently Friday night is pizza night at Chromy's, for a limited time anyway. It was my first visit and it was quite enjoyable. The decor is minimalist and a touch sterile, but as it was evening, and therefore dark outside, my fellow diners (who have been here before) assured me that the focus of the room is the view from...
