sailed into Burnie on cruise ship & hired a car from Hertz and drove to coast road to Stanley! What a wonderful drive!! Did the chair lift & then decided to spend the money we won at bingo on some local lobsters! Excellent decision, lobster mornay was the best ever!!! A little pricey but tell me where you get cheap...

We were in Stanley for two nights toward the end of our three week trip to Tasmania. We ate at Hursey's our first night. Good food. Average, at best, service. As we were finishing our meal, the owner, Mark Hursey, who was eating at another table, came over to us. He introduced himself, and told us of the history of... More

We arrived for dinner at 5:30pm but was unable to secure a table even though the restaurant was empty and most of the reservations were not until 6:30pm. We just wanted a quick meal and then go. We decided to buy take away from this establishment. We took it to our accomodation and ate the meal. We were disappointed as... More

We ate at the restaurant on a very busy Saturday night. Both food and service were good. The prawns in my seafood basket were the best I have ever eaten! Adequate parking. When arriving and departing the restaurant, you have to walk through a very "fishy" smelling area which was unpleasant. Otherwise 5/5.

This hidden treasure of seafood is heaven on the wharf! The produce offered here is mind blowing to the point you just want to buy it all. The huge aquarium with monster beautiful fish compliments the sparkling modern squeaky clean eatery. The service is personal and welcoming. There is also a restaurant upstairs which I will definately dine in next... More

The takeaway was average and the service slack. I was told 2 minutes before the rest of the food was ready that they had no crayfish cocktail takeaway that night after taking my Order. Food was average.

We were very disappointed. The service was poor. The meals were extremely expensive and poor quality. More like a bad pub meal. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening we spent at Hurseys. The fish and chips were fresh and beautifully cooked. The staff were all very nice and helpful. A must try if you go to Stanley. They even have take away as well, so you could eat take away on the waterfront. We will do this next time.

Lovely meal! Bit of a long wait between courses, but the girls were run off their feet Maybe if it is a platter for two they should have even numbers of each, eg prawns, scallops etc. Story behind the establishment of the restaurant very sad, but a great memory to those no longer with us.

This is the second time in two years that I have been on this trip. The restaurant and takawaybarea might have changed but the food is still fantastic.
