We all loved the interior, especially our boys! The food was superb! Friendly & attentive staff. Our only suggestion would be to play some old seafaring music instead of modern pop-music. Overall a great night out!

I would recommend this restaurant to any one staying in Hobart - the staff were very friendly - they fitted us in even though we had no reservation and it was the best meal we had in Hobart

5 of us turned up without a reservation last Tuesday night and they fitted us into a window table with no fuss. The nautical atmosphere is very attractive and felt like we were eating inside an old wooden ship. The view outside from the window...More
