Stopped for lunch on our way to the gorge. Nice atmosphere. Good menu. We had fish and chips. Tempura batter was light and tasty. Also had the pate, pickle and bread. Home made chibata and very nice chicken liver pate.

The waitstaff ignored the screaming girl whose parents texted and surfed on the web. The patrons were disturbed and annoyed. Finally the father got up to go outside, not to deal with the girl, but to have a cigarette. The food was excellent, the atmosphere...not...More

Seldom on our travels do we make a repeat visit to any restaurant, no matter how good, when there are so many local eateries to try. Stillwater was an exception. Our first lunch there on arrival was so tantalizing we were happy to go there...More

We enjoyed the New Year dinner in this wonderful restaurant. The chef pick menu is truly amazing. Though every dish is in small portion, the presentation and taste are just perfect. The lamb is a must try!

Amazing food and service. They forgot one meal but then went above and beyond to make sure the meal was quickly cooked and then was taken off the bill. Everything was cooked to perfection and the matching wine was awesome. Went back for breakfast and...More

If attention to detail is one of your requirements, Stillwater is for you. The setting is pretty (beside the Tamar River) & you can enjoy outside dining as well. Food on offer is modern with some twists & prices are reasonable. The wait staff are...More

Charming restaurant with lovely views of the water and water birds. Lovely food with interesting combinations. Pork belly was very tasty as was cauliflower and corn sides. Pricy as one would expect.

We sat outside this fantastic restaurant and took in the view over the tamar river. A "new age" menu with quite modern twists on the usual breakfast fare. It's a multi award winning venue and it's clear to see why once you have eaten here....More

I had brunch here while staying in Launceston on holiday. We had spicy Bloody Mary's to start, yummy. I had the green bowl with kale, quinoa, beetroot, poached eggs, pickled cucumbers and sunflower butter. They had run out of Avacado so I added mushrooms. This...More

Local Food, local wine, local talent.... Stillwater's food and wine philosophy: Our food is fresh, grown locally by passionate producers who rely on the attributes of our natural environment. Our State regulations keep the modification out of our genetics, the artificial out of our hormones and the free in our ranging animals. We know grass fed, antibiotic free, natural, happy animals make better meat....even if they aren't 'super sized'. Our water is clean, sourced from Cape Grim on Tasmania's North West Coast, home of the cleanest air on the planet. Our wines flow from around the State but being located in the Tamar Valley means Stillwater is a cornerstone for the local vignerons hosting a list that showcases the highly respected local tipples. Stillwater Partners: The Stillwater owner partnership is home grown as well, raised in a community that nurtures its youth and cares about its neighbours. Stillwater Restaurant: Being fortunate enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on the planet is one of the bonuses for the team at Stillwater River Cafe, Restaurant and Wine Bar. Situated in the historic Ritchie's Mill at the mouth of the Cataract Gorge on the banks of the Tamar River in Launceston, Tasmania the restaurant glows with the authentic warmth only an 1830's timber building can offer. The casually elegant ambiance ensures guests feel welcome and comfortable whether enjoying a casual breakfast, corporate lunch, special dinner, a glass of wine after work or just a coffee. Comprised of a number of spaces Stillwater has a main dining room that seats guests comfortably amongst the Oregon timber beams and Kauri pine floors and the original bluestone wine cellar full of character as well as fabulous wines. On fine days the outdoor courtyard offers views overlooking the Tamar River and the Wine Bar adjacent to the entrance is a great retreat for a bar snack and cocktail. Stillwater is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch and Tuesday* through Saturday for our indulgent evening menu (*subject to winter hours), reservations are highly recommended. A vibrant centre of the local community, Stillwater has achieved many hospitality, wine and business awards over the years from local to National for all aspects of the business. Stillwater Providore: The food theme continues throughout the building with The Providore above Stillwater showcasing our fabulous local produce in a deli and food shop alongside talented local arts, craft and homewares.
