After spending a full day at Port Arthur Historic Site and doing a Ghost Tour we were really looking forward to a nice meal in a warm relaxing environment but unfortunately it didn't happen. There were only 5 other tables at various stages of their meals when we arrived but we were shown to a table furthest from the fire... More

Actually came here in May 2013 but the drop-down date list didn't extend that back. Stayed in Taranna and was looking for a casual place to eat on one of the nights and came by here since we had visited the adjoining tourist centre for the Port Arthur Historic Site. More than a year later, I still remember the dishes... More

Excellent food and service. I am vegan and they were able to organise for me (at short notice) a delicious entree and main course. My partner had fish which was apparently superb. A wonderful night.

Unfortunately we could not sample the culinary delights in Felons because we were "debased" out... and here's why. So after M and I went on a Port Arthur ghost tour (5pm), we decided to grab a light meal from Felons bistro after hearing rave reviews. Upon arriving there were 2 other tables of diners (2-4pp), so needless to say, not... More

Thank you for providing this feedback. It is very disappointing and indeed shocking to read how you were treated at Felons. Your experience certainly doesn't live up to the expectations that you understandably had based on other reviews. We are actively investigating the matter and considering signage options to minimise the risk of future patrons having the same negative experience.... More

The sea food pasta was one of a kind. Jummie! I would recommend this dish! The restaurant next to the Port Arthur Historic Site entree.

We had a nice meal at this restaurant but it slightly lacked ambience because it was just a partitioned off area of the visitor centre which is a cafe by day. Meals were nice but thought some were over priced as they were really just schnitzel or steak with chips and salad. We had seafood pasta and lamb rump which... More

Ate at this restaurant just prior to taking the Ghost Tour. Food was very good and prices were not bad at all. Our food server was the best! Definitely would recommend this restaurant to everyone! Thanks......

We had a table booked for dinner before our Ghost Tour. The staff were aware of our schedule and although the service wasn't rushed, they did make sure we were served in plenty of time for our tour. The food was nice, the atmosphere pleasant, and the staff friendly. It wasn't cheap, but reasonable.

Once we were sat at a table after our Ghost Tour it was almost like we were forgotten about for about 20 - 25 minutes, once our drink and food order was taken the service was quite quick, the meals were quite tasty, we had Salmon and Lamb, well presented and not too bad, I had read some reviews stating...
