Introduced to this restaurant by a couple of friends recently dined there. We enjoyed a satisfying and sumptuous dinner there to mark our first day in Tasmania.
We had the ocean trout tataki as starter. The fish fillet was slightly grilled on the surface with the meat raw inside. When taken with the wasabi mayonnaise and the suffron sticky rice, the freshness and fine taste of the trout came out beautifully. We then had the venison (having ascertained that it was fresh from Tasmania and not frozen) and lamb rack as the main courses and both were superbly done, succulent, tender and, needless to say, fresh. The goat cheese souffle that went with the venison and the coriander pesto and pearl barley that went with the lamb were perfect accompaniment. We finished the meal with the chocolate fondant as dessert whcih was also nice though not spectacular.
All in all, the restaurant well deserve the 5-star rating claimed; but the price also reflects the food quality, fine service and ambience of the place. At A$ 69 for a 3-course dinner anad wine averaging A $12 per glass, it wasn't cheap, although we were told that is what you have to pay for fine dining here. But if you are going all the way to enjoy the mighty Cradle Mountain, this is a bonus for fine Tasmanian Courmet not to be missed.
