Had our last dinner in Hobart and the Blue Skies, had tried some of the more fancied restaurants but all booked out. We weren't dissapointed, on arrival we were seated in a booth towards the middle of the restaurant, had just settled in with our drinks when the waitress came along said a window table had been vacated and would we like it, which we did. No problem moving us to a table with a view really appreciated. Food was good, prices seemed okay but the service really stood out, received a high standard of service through out.

Would recommend.

We booked in here for a family get together in a party of 11. This place has a good thought out menu with something for everyone including Gluten Free options clearly displayed on the menu. I think this is a real bonus with a restaurant . It is also located right on the harbour and has a lot of outdoor dining tables and chairs. We sat inside which was also great. Great location close to Salamanca market.

We started with dips and bread for the table which were great with lots and lots of bread. The waiter kept asking us if we wanted more bread to lap up the yummy dips. The meals were tasty and good serving sizes . This is not a up market place but a casual dining larger style café. I think they do this well. The staff were very friendly and informative about everything. I think that they had under catered with the staff but really it was not that bad. The staff that they did have were working very hard and still smiling. So well done.

In summary this is a relaxed casual dining place with well priced tasty food. I have read a couple of the other reviews about slowness. Yes they were not the fastest place around , however we enjoyed our time here drinking , talking and just relaxing. If you want a quick 30 minute meal - in and out then maybe this place is not for you. My advice relax and enjoy the scenery of Hobart water front and the vert tasty well priced food.

Had the chicken burger here and it was divine!!! My friend had the caesar salad and said it was equally delicious. Located on the docks, this restaurant has lovely views of Constitution Dock and surrounds, well priced, easily accessible by foot and parking very close by.

In the time we have been waiting for our meal I have had enough time to wait an hour, then create a trip advisor account, then write this review . All up it has been 70 mins from when we sat down and our meal still hasn't arrived. Pathetic.

This used to a a great restauant, but it's now showing signs of being under-staffed and under pressure. Its ok if it's not too busy, but the noise level inside when its starting to fill up make it a less than pleasant experience.
