We dined here for a special occasion and were thoroughly impressed! The beef short rib and fish of the day (blue wahoo) were cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. We arrived early to see the sunset over the water, which is definitely a must-see, especially with the accompaniment of a great glass of wine. The service was exceptional and the... More

We went at night so missed the scenery as it is lost in the darkness even though the restaurant has very large windows. Ordered the cob loaf for entree as had read the mains were generous size however unfortunately the cob was underwhelming - neither the bread nor the butter were stand outs and felt that free bread served at...

Limited menu, but great fresh, creative food. The scallop pie (a Tasmanian tradition) was delicious, and the ginger cake for dessert was fantastic! Nice wine list too.

I had a vegetarian cannelloni which was very tasty and well presented. My husband had pork which he said was beautifully cooked. With coffee and an iced reisling dessert wine... More

Views of Coles Bay come with wildlife hopping around. Food and service is up to fine dining standard. This was the only steak that came medium-rare as ordered instead of medium or even medium-well. And it is against Australian regulations for steak to have any fat attached? Come here if you want something a bit special in Coles Bay.

Having been led to believe that we were about to have a gastronomic sensation, we were rather disappointed with the food we had carefully chosen and were served with. The view from the restaurant is spectacular, especially at sunset with a blaze of colour lighting up the Hazards opposite the restaurant across the bay, but I'm afraid that the food... More
