We ate at Felons before our Ghost Tour of Port Arthur and let me tell you it's definitely well money spent. The oysters are to die for! So fresh! Mains were the right size for the price and did not disappoint with the flavours. One of the best meals we have had since being Tasmania!! Well done Felons!!

We were a little disappointed with the food after reading the reviews online. The steak was good, however the chowder wasn't exactly a chowder and a number of dishes (especially the pasta) were lacking in seasoning.

Great Bistro. Service was good, friendly staff. The meal was very nice and reasonably priced. Situated on the Port Arthur site in the Information center, it is screened off giving the area a nice private feeling. I would recommend a meal there.

But slow, max 30 customers and 2 wait staff, 55 mins to entree and main 20 mins later. I known harmony people had... More

You get the choice of Two Course, we all went with Entrée and Main, the food was so good. The service also good,... More

The food is absolutely delicious. We ordered the Tasmanian Greenham grass fed porterhouse steak and the Tasmanian Clover Hill Lamb Rump. Both were beautiful - so many flavours and reasonably cooked - steak was over cooked and lamb was under cooked, but otherwise everything else was great! For dessert we ordered the Winter Solstice Sundae & the Cheese Platter. Again,... More

After spending a day strolling around all of the Historical site areas, we decided to head back later that evening for dinner at Felons Restaurant. Wow, very impressive. From the moment we were seated including our 5 yr old daughter, the service was just amazing. Our waitress never lacked a smile and was so helpful with wines, drinks and right... More

We have eaten in many restaurants in various parts of the world and this is the worst experience we can recall due to the rudeness of one of the servers and the long wait for our main course. Our plate of oysters arrived promptly but when we asked for Tabasco sauce a server approached us in a confrontational way and... More
