Dining in Cradle Mtn area -- which is best for dinner?

We will be staying at the Wilderness Lodge -- is the food good there or would you recommend another restaurant/hotel in the area for dining. Since it will probably be an early night, would lean towards either a nice dinner with wine or appetizers & cocktails. Thank you!

Not entirely sure which place you mean.

Cradle Mountain Lodge has an excellent restaurant and a separate bar/bistro which I like. Highly recommended.

The Wilderness Village is more a self-catering (efficiency) place.

Regardless of where you're staying, you could eat at the Lodge.

When we stayed at Cradle mountain Lodge we ate there and at the Cradle Mountain Chateau.Both were very good restaurants.The Lodge has an older feel,the Chateau a much more modern decor.Both had reasonable wine lists and made good use of Tasmanian ingredients.

The fine dining restaurant at Cradle Mountain Lodge is very very good. I don't know whether there's been a change of hands in the kitchen since voyagers (the previous owners) sold up, but we had an excellent 3 course dinner there for about $70 a head plus wine. Their wine list is good with the added novelty of being able to go down to the cellar to pick one's own bottle.

The bistro at the same property has a fairly limited menu of bog-standard pub food in a fairly loud and jolly environment, though it's pushing the boundaries in price for what they actually deliver.
