“A Wow factor with staff and food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

My wife and I ate here two nights running and eat here whenever we holiday in Hobart. It is always of a high standard. The food is fresh, well prides and the menu offers lots of options.

The location is also great. Views of the cove and boats literally feet from the window.

The staff were so friendly and just great. They remembered us from the night before by name and really made us feel welcome.

The food came quickly and was prepared perfectly both nights. We can't wait to come back and eat here again.

“Harbour view dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Blue skies seems to be a good standby for birthdays, special occasions or even just eating out on a whim. Food and service are consistently good and they do a damn good coffee.

“Friendly Owner, personalised service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Finding a quality meal at 4pm on new years eve? It was a hard task. Most places had finnished lunch service, and most hadn't commenced evening dining. Officially the resturant was closed, preparing for a special dinner service. However staff gratiously responded to our knock on the door. The manager took the time to come over, personally introduce himself, and enquire to how our day had been. We selected a seafood main, and a pasta main. Both were excellent.
This resturant has a fantastic location, great food, and if our experience is typical, extraordinary customer service. Highly recommended.

“Good Value”

Good value food with very friendly staff. Relaxing atmosphere by the water after a hard day sight seeing. Well worth a visit.

“We won't be back”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

As a previous family favourite of ours we've seen Blue Skies decline over the last 2 years (4 visits) - to the point where we won't be back! Our final visit were experienced mediocre service and a 2 hour wait time with less than 15 guests in the dining room for lunch. There are plenty of great family dining options in Hobart - this is, sadly, no longer one of them.
