We were aware of one other restaurant in this precinct from a visit to Launceston some months ago. This visit was not scheduled & we decided to visit this precinct on the evening of 11 Sept 2013. My wife decided on the Levee Food Co restaurant while I parked the car. We had not booked. On entering we were greeted cheerfully & escorted to a corner table for two. A pleasant active atmosphere with couples, a teenage girl group escorted by instructors, a table of six mums of this group away from the happy well behaved teens. A pleasant view across the anchorage to the surrounding hills. Our young waitress attended us as we selected a wine & perused the menu.We noticed a few nice looking meals being served to surrounding diners... I have a habit of asking table staff of "any chef specials".. Upon checking she advised of "pea & ham soup". Being a cool night & having an appetite we promptly agreed to soup each. My wife selected "crispy skin salmon". I selected "twice cooked duck". Our selected wine arrived promptly along with a chilled bottle of plain water as we ordered. Well, a real large proper bowl of soup arrived for each of us with a good slice of sour dough bread. The soup was hearty traditional style - perfect as far as we were concerned. Not at all salty which some restaurants offer,. The Freycinet Louis white wine was enjoyable & fresh... A small wait which we appreciated before our mains arrived. My wife enjoyed the Salmon dish.
(i was privileged to a taste - wow.). My duck was absolutely beautiful. The accompanying flavors & foods on each of our dishes was spot-on....( I of course gave my wife a taste-again impressed). We sat for a while letting the meal settle enjoying the early evening. Desserts looked tempting.. my wife Lemon cheesecake & myself 3 scoops,-chocolate-mint choc chip-vanilla bean & I mean real scoops in a large bowl. We both enjoyed our serves followed by a standard for my wife & a large cappuccino for me, very nice coffee too. A great choice of restaurant. All staff attentive, not in your face very pleasant.The docket for our table reads 6:13:12 PM & posted 8:00:02 PM. Avery enjoyable evening. D.J.
