I found Hallams although traditionally a seafood restaurant there overall menu choice catered too all tastes and as I observed various dishes coming out they all looked of a high standard. My salmon was perfect! Good service, great location and nice rustic ambience especially in the winter with a very comforting open fire! would highly recommend this restaurant, You will... More

Great location and reasonably priced...but: average wine list, mixed food quality and not well ventilated/air conditioned. The fish and chips was bland and oily...unexpected in tempura batter. Potential missed.

We visited on Australia day 2014 and really enjoyed the food. It was fresh and tasty and the menu has a good selection. Our waitress had a reasonable knowledge of the wine although she could have told us anything and we wouldn't have known any different. The wine we chose was really good. I was slightly disappointed that my request... More

The food here was wonderful, the seafood was cooked perfectly. So fresh with wonderful flavors. The setting is charming... fine dining but with a relaxed feel. Great service too. Highly recommend.

First trip to restaurant and really enjoyed the meal, good selection on the menu. Close to Harbour, and a pleasant walk back to the hotel. The staff were o.k., wish I could say more, but they needed to take some smile pills! They did everything required, but that was all, with little interaction with the customer. But that aside, we...

After our second visit to Hallam's for dinner, we declare it is our favourite restaurant in Launceston, since moving here in August 2013. The flavours are so good, the serving sizes just right and I love looking at the meals on other peoples tables, "ooh maybe I should have ordered that,". I had the fish for my main & again... More

A party of six dined there yesterday. Beautiful day, great restaurant and fabulous food had by all. Oysters are the best in Tassie and we were certainly not disappointed again. My chowder was the best ever and same message received from all diners. Good wine list and menu reasonably priced. Not pages and pages of menu (which I like). Lovely... More

We've eaten here a few times when visiting Launceston and never been disappointed but on this occasion all three in our party were disappointed with our meals. The blue eye was off the menu due to supply issues and had been replaced with flathead tails in the same dish. Unfortunately the flathead was very overcooked which meant it was extremely... More

I may have had better dishes in my long life, but the two I had at Hallam's Waterfront were good enough to make me forget what the others were. Not only was the food perfectly prepared and presented, but the service was also excellent. Staff were there when you needed them and invisible the rest of the time. No hovering... More
