We ordered the steak, trout and salad. The food was good but for $110 it was way overpriced compared to other meals we enjoyed in Tasmania. Service was friendly but staff seemed overworked by attending to a large tour group seated in the second have of the restaurant. We dined at Highland Restaurant on our first night and cancelled our... More

Definitely imagenitive and a great way to sample fabulous meals of local produce, including terrific Triut and Venison and Walkaby if your taste runs to it. Good portions and relaxed service in a nice venue - with a sensational wine list highlighting wonderful Tasmanian wines. But pricey - a glass of good local wine was $14-15 and mains average $40...

We had a great dinner and breakfast at the Highland Restaurant. We had Lamb ,salmon, smoked salmon and wime for dinner. All tasty! There's not many choices of breakfast buffet, but still enough for filling the stomach..haha. Nice restaurant.

We had an unexpectedly pleasant dinner and breakfast here while staying overnight. The hotel itself could probably do with a refresh very soon, but the food experience was really pretty good, especially given the relatively remote location. Service during both meals was attentive, quick and competent.

This proved to be arguably the nicest, fine-dining experience around Cradle Mountain. Our server was attentive, friendly, personable and knowledgeable. On offer was a high-quality, high-perceived-value, and high-priced menu. The Wagyu Beef steak was cooked to perfection and tasted absolutely delicious! The Wallaby, done two-ways was also very good, though a rather small portion size. The chocolate cake for dessert... More

We stayed at the Cradle Mountain Lodge and didn't feel like driving anywhere else for dinner after a long day of hiking. One night we ate at the Highland restaurant and the other at the Bistro (see separate review). The service was lovely and attentive. No problem for us. We were told reservations were essential, but there seemed to be... More
