blue skies cafe

Does anybody know about this restaurant (in Hobart--on the Murray St. Pier)? I'm trying to come up with some "medium" places to eat--with views, if possible, that aren't too "touristy".

If its lunch I am going to have to suggest Mures Upper Deck

I can't see it on there website - last time I was there they did a 3 course for $35.

And if you had two people that came with a bottle of wine too.

Its a semi-regular treat for us - and its not to pretentious but the food is still yummy (limited choices but all good)

I'd e-mail them and see. Solid food, they have some views. Better than Blue Skies I think if you are planning an indoors food as they have windows and are on the second floor.

Just make sure you try their fudge!

Oh I forgot to mention - email them first - the deal is rarely on their website

Oh and if you like pizza see this post

tripadvisor.com/…9384829

Unfortunately the council is STILL working on the seawall there so no views - but you can go for a walk afterwards.

Its a very small pokey place, but free corkage (its BYO) and its always flat out with takeaways etc

There is a city version too

no jam & marshmallow pizzas unfortunately but they have a chocolate one that sounds just as sickly sweet :)

We went to the city one about 2 weeks ago - pizzas were very tasty and they are now up to the same standards as their Sandy Bay Version

Blue Skies is a very nice place to eat, it is on the ground floor so the views are of the boats outside on the docks, the outside tables offer a little more scenery too but it did not seem full of tourists to us more locals. We enjoyed views from the restaurants Pier One and Revolving point restaurants at the casino, the revolving restaurant was worth the extra $ to us to enjoy the view 360 degree of Hobart as the floor turns as you dine! here is the website http://www.wrestpoint.com.au/?pid=281

beach specialists,

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm checking into them! We have several days in Hobart, so I'm looking into all of the possible alternatives. Looks like a beautiful city!

The revolving restaurant has a bar type area where you can buy a coffee/cocktail and watch the views

We took an aunt and it was about $20 so pretty reasonable - I think you can order desert there too if you are so inclined

I think Blue Sky is actually quite nice but once you factor drinks etc - pricey. Unless you plan to sit outside you don't see much either

The Point Lounge up the 17th floor (the same as the Revolving Restaurant) is open from 6pm every night unfortunately closed by day.

Hi Caligirl, some of the recommendations you've got (Mures and the Revolving Restaurant) are a bit touristy. Suggest you try one of the little resturants in Battery Point - Kelley's (seafood) or Montpelier's. And walk to the resturant - Battery Point is a relic from the convict days.
