“Best Seafood In Hobart!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I am writing on behalf of my parents who stayed in Hobart in January this year, and were recommended by a nearby motel to dine here. They were were wanting something nearby and convenient and this was an easy level walk from their accommodation. What a great recommendation it was! They ended up dining here 5 nights in a row, they just couldn't fault it! And my mum is a very fussy eater, so to have her rave about this place was awesome. They loved everything about it, the fresh seafood (proper fish & chips) and lovely friendly unpretentious service. Not just seafood on offer, other nice choices also but they loved the fish the best, fresh, generous serves and at a very affordable price. Definitely try this lovely place, the owners and staff are terrific and make you feel very welcome. They deserve to do very well. Thank you!

“Tasty, cosy, warm & inviting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

The recommendation came from the motel reception staff at the nearby motel I was staying at & I've now been 2 nights in a row! The best fish & chips that were so large I shared them with a friend & then a tasty margarita pizza tonight. It's relaxed, warm, inviting & the service was outstanding!

“Best Pizza and Best Espresso in Hobart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

During my three months in Hobart, I fell hopelessly in love with MRC. Pizza crusts are hand-made, and the pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven. The house-brand pinot noir is inexpensive and really to-die-for on the palate, The venue is small, and attached to a petrol-station-cum-hair-salon, and during the summer the place can be quite hot because of the oven. But the Italian owner (from Florence, I think) imparts a genuine bonhomie to the place. For the uninitiated, Australia is a place of astounding expensiveness, but MRC is easy on the wallet. The espresso served at MRC is genuinely outstanding.

“Basic but good, and fast, friendly service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Very small but friendly staff. Happy to explain the fish types with which we were unfamiliar. Good food. Wine at more than reasonable prices.
