In Hobart for Mo Fo we were keen to try some of Hobart's restaurants. We had wonderful meals at Ethos, Smolt and Piccolo but sadly were disappointed by Garagistes. We queued with other out-of-towners in the afternoon sun at 5.30 and were lucky enough to get seats. We'd read about the menu online and so were surprised to find that we had only two options: a three course or a five course set menu. With two children in our party of six, we asked whether there were any other options and were told no. The foamy peas for entree were quite beautiful but they arrived over an hour later and the oysters we also ordered ( they were on a list of two additions) didn't arrive at all. The main dish was wagyu beef with a few dehydrated olives all placed carefully on one side of the plate. The flavors were disappointingly subtle and without contrast and dessert suffered from the same lack of substance and flavor. While the decor was stunning, Hobart has better places to eat!
