Description: Cargo Bar Pizza Lounge is set in the heart of historic Salamanca Place. Built from Georgian sandstone in the 1830's the original site was used to house grain, wool and apples before being exported around the world. Today this 180 year old building is home to Hobart's premier woodfired pizza and wine bar which incorporates a style and service to inside and outside licensed areas. There is also a take away area for coffee, delicious pizzas, gourmet salads and homemade gelato. The bar theme is based on an old world European concept incorporating style and elegance within a casual environment.

“Tasty pizzas and beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is one of many contiguous restaurants in the Salamanca area of Hobart, but we very much enjoyed our lunch here. We ordered olives to start, and they were served warm, which enhances the flavor in a wonderful way. Our party ordered four pizzas and shared: the peri-peri chicken pizza, seafood paella pizza, scallop and bacon pizza, and lamb and sumac pizza. All were tasty and not what you'd find at an American pizza place. The crusts were wonderful and tasted freshly made. Food in Australia is, generally, more expensive than in the U.S., but we thought this lunch was worth the money. We probably should have split one pizza between two persons, instead of getting one each, but did finish them all.

“Hobarts worst bar!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

First of all, the bar smelled like puk., And just when we had ordered drinks they told us in a rude manner that it was time to close and we had to leave at the same moment! Left the bar with full drinks and a bad odour of puke!

“Good nibble!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We went in with two very tired children around 6pm. The lounge chairs are very comfortable. The children quickly made themselves at home. We ordered pizzas, some small dishes, wine and cocktails. Everyone was happy; the local wines recommended were excellent, especially the white. The cocktail was made to the exact taste of our daughter. Service was good, efficient and friendly. Balancing the plate on our knee was a bit tricky but worth the effort as the children finished their meal happily and rested. We think the food were interesting and tasty. The music was good, the singer was probably singing mostly his own songs. What more could we ask for?

“A good wine bar, but an average restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

Am I picky in wanting a chair inside that I can actually sit comfortably in whilst I eat my food? Sure, you can eat at tables outside on the pavement, but if you want to eat inside, there is a choice of high bench tops and bar stools, where you balance precariously, or lounge chairs and coffee tables. We chose the lounge chairs, and so ate our meals off our knees. There are some good aspects to this place - the wine list is very good, and the service was friendly and efficient. The pizza menu looked enticing, and I liked the idea of selecting all your ingredients from a long list. I chose the duck and caramelised onion, whilst my partner selected the margarita. But the result was very average - a hard, biscuit crust with no puff or bounce to it all. We might have considered dessert, but by that stage were so uncomfortable we departed.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

We went for a quick bite and thoroughly enjoyed the pizzas. The drinks list is impressive with cocktails as well. A bit of a wait for food as this is a very busy venue but was worth it. Good staff.
