I was a bit nervous about coming here. The much written about long waits. The strange, challenging food. Lots of hype.
At 7:15 on a Friday night our party of six were seated without a wait! Quick service with water which was followed through with professional, friendly and helpful attention by our waiter. We had the 5 course menu and agree with other correspondents on the size of the dishes and the stunning highlight of the savoury desert. The matching wines were also well introduced and paired perfectly.
The downside remains the shared tables. For the price, I'd prefer a little more privacy. The decor is grim. And what is the story about 95% European wines on their very extensive list. Very dodgy, as who would (a) know the value (b) remember what they drank? There is absolutely no excuse for this appalling lack of faith in the local product when this is all they rave about in the food department.
I understand that this is cutting edge dining and the food was certainly interesting but I think you get more bang for your culinary buck with a night out at Me Wah in Sandy Bay. Similar pricing but added elegance. If you are in Hobart you have to try it once. But that's it.
