I did the ghost tour dinner package with my family and was pretty happy with the service, we didn't have to wait too long being served, our waiter Brett was very friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and substantially sized. The prices were slightly higher than your typical bistro menus but it is worth paying the extra money for... More

I don't complain about service ... But after 30 mins had to ask if they'd serve me a glass of wine and if they'd take our order. After 65 mins had to ask why bread hadn't arrived. Then when I tried to complain to the waiter he was arrogant with me. Food did look good though. I guess when consumer... More

Loved the food, and that they fitted us in late and unannounced. Didn't like that it overlapped the cafeteria.

Booked dinner and ghost tour. A two course meal, the best seafood chowder and the most tender piece of lamb rump ever. World class, no doubt.

We dined here whilst waiting for the Ghost Tour to commence. There is a superb range of local produce on offer impeccably prepared and served. Locally matched wine compliments the meal perfectly.To ensure the best experience, notify the wait staff of your Ghost Tour time and they will serve to suit.

Waiting for the ghost tour we decided to have a snack at Felons and were pleasantly surprised that they offered wedges, nuggets and chips, soups all at a reasonable price. No rip off there.

Food - excellent. Oysters with lime chilli, coriander and Palm sugar were gorgeous and fresh. Trevalla with salsa verde for main was perfectly cooked. Partners eye fillet similarly perfectly cooked. Desert - creme brûlée- good. The only issue for me was the ambiance - I couldn't quite shake the day time cafeteria look. That being said the food was so... More

We had a dinner in a windy Port Arthur, in this restaurant where we had a good food, while the service was a bit slow despite the lack of a great number of guests. In Port Arthur you cannot find anything different in any case.
