I was with a group of friends and a few said "I wanted to lick my plate". The bar staff need a bit more training in customer service.

We booked this restaurant (like most) as part of the Ghost Tour on a Tuesday night. Upon arrival we were welcomed warmly by the wait staff and enjoyed attentive and knowledgeable service. The two course meal was delicious, the Steak and Chocolate Brownie for dessert was a hit for me! Walking distance from the Port Arthur Motor Inn through the... More

Friends visiting from Brissy. We signed on for the dinner and ghost tour combo, $60ish each for 2 courses + tour. Great value for money. Delicious local seafood and cheese with friendly, efficient and knowledgeable (they knew their wine) service.

Having completed one section of the Three Capes Trail that day, we were ready for a meal to reward our efforts. The restaurant at the accommodation we were staying at was closed and we didn't want to go too far away, so followed a suggestion to try Felons located at the historic Port Arthur entrance. At first we were told... More

So we ate here as part of the ghost tour package. Everything was shared and just, awesome. The quail, mixed game plate, oysters kilpatrick were amazing entrees. The mains were another step up, the special rib eye steak of the day was tender as mothers mercy and the seafood pasta is great. The service was great and the lime cheesecake... More

Second visit to Felons Bistro the first was a couple of years ago and the menu has barely changed. The night was busy with only 2 service staff who were run off their feet which made the service slow. Entree selections are limited and are mainly seafood though everyone fully enjoyed. Mains were hit and miss - Fish was very... More

Had a lovely dinner here before our ghost tour. The options on the menu were limited but sounded delicious. Where this place missed the mark for me was the time... I felt sorry for the waitstaff (There were only 2 on a particularly busy evening). Meals took a while to get to the table but were great once they came.... More

This was only our second dinner in Tasmania and we were not disappointed. Can't remember what we had but I do know everything was fresh, local and well cooked and presented. Service was pleasant and surprisingly quick for a rather larger establishment.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the meal. Top notch. Open for dinner around 5:30. Service is sort of slow.

Well located Restaurant, with adjoining snack-bar, adjacent to the entrance of the wonderful Port Arthur Penitentiary and very very convenient for visitors. A good menu, and wine list, offers very well prepared food and wine at very reasonable prices. This place has to be the choice to dine in the area and is exceptionally clean and offers good courteous service... More
