Chef was very accommodating to my dietary requirements (which is a relief because usually I expect a swift "please leave without making a scene" once I say I can't eat onions or garlic).

Lovely attentive staff. Friendly and knowledgeable about their menu items. Overall a lovely meal but a few minor points. New menu started Saturday yet they were out of an entree item Monday night and unable to source till Thursday. Special entree was san choy bow which was tasty but rested on lettuce. Not enough to really wrap around the filling.... More

Enjoyed an evening meal with friends at Hallam's recently. The fish is always excellent here - and this visit proved to be no exception. Ambience, service, menu, food and wine all really good. looking forward to going back already.

My wife and I had a very enjoyable dinner at this seafood restaurant during our brief stay in Launceston. There was a nice view of the ocean inlet and a good selection of menu items. The food was comparable in price to other restaurants we visited in the area. This is a good choice for a dinner in Launceston.

We went to Hallam's for my Aunt's 90th birthday lunch. The staff, particularly Rebecca, were lovely. The food was good and fresh, not fantastic but good. The bill was maybe a little high for lunch but then we remembered it was a public holiday and there would have been loading. Recommend for a relaxing lunch.

This place has everything right. Beautifully fresh food, lovely accommodating, friendly staff, a light and airy atmosphere and reasonable prices for what you get. It's not for someone on a budget who's looking for fish and chips for the kids. I've been here a number of times over the years and will continue to do so. Nice for a romantic... More

We were looking for decent seafood and as a former Tasmanian I wanted to show my family how good Tassie seafood is. There was nothing wrong with the food but for a $110 platter the presentation was very basic and I have had better on the mainland at same price. Wine was over priced at $12.50 a glass for an...

Overall, the experience at Hallams was disappointing. It is a fantastic location and during the day would be amazing to sit by a window and overlook the water, but the food is not representative of the price point. The food was good, there was nothing wrong with the food or the presentation but it was also nothing special and certainly... More

Enjoyed a meal with friends at this restaurant. Food was well presented and great choice of seafood. My advice is don't go with friends who are not fish eaters as there is very limited options available.
