We had 24 "touring gardeners" have lunch here. Jane has a beautiful setting for her restaurant. The meal was beau fully presented and everyone was impressed with their choice.

The beautiful garden setting sets for an amazing atmosphere and is definitely worth a stroll whilst you wait for your meal. Salmon is always cooked perfectly and I always order! Service can be a bit slow and but made by the fantastic culinary experience! Don't skip the lemon tart for dessert!! Yum!

We stumbled upon this gorgeous place on the way to Hobart from Cradle Mt. I'm so glad we stopped, it is in a gorgeous leafy green setting, the dining room had lots of character and the chef (Jane) was so kind and clearly cares about her diners. Food was delicious, home cooked and rustic. They were offering some lovely events,... More

We were most surprised with our afternoon, we hadn't booked & were lucky to have a window table with a view. Surroundings were very pleasant, staff were outstanding, both wine & homemade meals were thoroughly delightful. Prices were certainly worth what was delivered. They have a very special Christmas Day Menu...sorry we can't make it ...

After a aimless Sunday drive, we found ourselves outside this lovely character Mill at Longford. The other times we've come past the carpack has been packed to overflowing so we've never stopped before - this time we grabbed the opportunity to experience what we've heard so much about. Set in an old Mill, the Rivers Edge Cafe manages that elusive... More

We pre-booked a large family gathering and were seated at 2 different tables. Menu was on boards set high on a wall in chalk - for those of us who were short sighted, it was difficult to see. The waitress offered to read it out, however it would have been useful to have something in front of us. The wine... More

From the moment you step through the doors you can feel the warmth and know that the experience and food will be memorable. Nothing was too much trouble for chef and owner, Jane. The Salmon was cooked to perfection and the roasted capsicum was divine, perfect Pinot suggestions and a warm fire, with wonderfully welcoming staff, will be back !

Enjoyed a delightful lunch at this gem of a restaurant in lovely, but isolated area in Tasmania. Greeted at the door by the 4-legged maitre'd - yes, a lovely, quite old canine who settled at our table for a short while before welcoming more guests for lunch. A lovely young lady outlined proceedings and we proceeded to enjoy a very... More
