We chose main and desert from $39 menu and oyster kilpatrick and rib eye fillet. The oysters were the best we have ever tasted! The rib eye was the best I have ever tasted, the dessert was also perfect. The atmosphere was relaxing and warm, the staff were very professional. I could not fault anything in the restaurant. I would... More

Quaint little place with an amazing menu. I found it mid afternoon so only got to enjoy a coffee out in the sunshine on the deck - staff were extremely friendly and bought magazines! The fireplace, wine list & menu have me looking forward to a Seafood dinner on my next trip!!

The first time I went to this restaurant on a visit to Tassy in 2014 I was gobsmacked by how fresh, and delightful the seafood dishes I had were. As it was such a memorable experience our first evening in Launceston this trip we went back to see if was again as good. The scallops were exceptional, the natural Pacifc... More

Went for lunch recently. Great fish and the salad was delicous. Had the lunch special and thought the value for money was outstanding. Will certainly be back.

If you're into your seafood then give this place a try. The oysters and mussels were of good quality, friendly staff and the restaurant itself has character

Great spot on the waterfront in central Launceston. Service friendly and personable. Food was excellent with the seafood laksa and the chilli squid a standout

The oysters were very fresh. I loved their oysters with a glass of local wine. Had seafood chowder too, which was very yummy too. Desserts were excellent. Tried their special which was peppermint tea cream brulee and chocolate indulgence. Both were really lovely. The waiting staff tend to forget that you are there though. I had to wait more than...

We went there by walk-in at 6:30 on Saturday night and it was already full. We were asked to come back at 8. Fortunately when we back at 8, we just need to wait for a few minutes to get a table. The place there is not large, so the best tips is to book a table before you go... More
