I have to admit that the closing of the upstairs restaurantat during winter was a bit of a bummer, we enjoyed the food and the views from there. However, the downstair still has some of the best oysters & marinated octopus (yes in take-away containers) in Hobart.

I hae no problems paying plenty for good food only here I was paying a lot of bad food. My food was cold and boring and the others I went with were equally disapointed

Went for a quick, simple taste of famed oysters while waiting for a plane at nearby Hobart airport.
At 2:00 pm 5 tables occupied, waited 5mins to be seated, 5 minutes for a menu, 10 minutes for an order 1 glass of white wine and 18 oysters to be taken and 30 minutes for the oysters to be plated.
Oysters had been overwashed so little flavour, wine was OK.
Really needs a serious management revision as the food and services badly let down the position and set up.

Went their as people had been raving about it. Went in winter, don't know if the winter menu is different to summer, but it was average. Food was ok at best, service was average and prices were high. Wont be going back.

We stopped by Barilla Bay on the way back from Sorell Fruit Farm to Hobart. Food was excellent, with some very interesting vinaigrette used on the salads. Oysters were definitely fresh (although you can of course get them cheaper in more out of the way locations, but having said that, it IS a posh sit down restaurant) and very succulent. View was of course fantastic, looking out over the water. Service was good, staff were friendly. I would classify it as a tad on the pricey side, but still acceptable given the quality of the food and the location.
