We were in Launceston for 5 days, staying at Peppers Seaport so Mudbar was the logical choice for dinner on our first night (Christmas Eve). The place was very busy but the service from Kieren was excellent. Quite an amusing guy. We started with our usual Margarita and Martini (both made exactly as we asked for) and pondered the menu. An interesting mix but a bit heavy on the Asian fusion.
For entree, I had the seared scallops which were very good. She chose the scallop and abalone ravioli because she loves ravioli but the Balinese sour soup it was served in was so sour and spicy that she couldn't eat it. Fortunately, Kieren saved the day by suggesting that marscapone be added and it worked well. The sticky rice which we'd ordered as a side entree was a great accompaniment. For mains, we both had the white fish with noodles and prawns. Overall, a great dish but a bit spicy for us. Our bottle of Petaluma chardonnay worked well with the meal. We'd had a fairly big lunch on the flight over from Melbourne so dessert was out of the question. However another martini for me and an espresso martini for her finished us off nicely. At $292, the meal was the second most expensive of our stay in Launceston (Christmas lunch at the Silo Hotel made that look cheap) and nowhere near as good as the wonderful dinner we had a few nights later at Stillwater which was $256.

Return visit after quite a few months and better than ever. Great vibe, among food, considered service, wondrous selection of wine. Thanks again, and looking forward to returning.

The good preparation and presentation was excellent although I suspect my dish waited at the station a little long before being served, as the crispy potion was already partially soggy. The servers did not really know how to handle the 75 minute wait for food, with only crumbled wonton to offer while we waited, and then a comped side dish to try satisfy us fr the wait. The setting is special, but the value offered was not., and tables around us wondered too where there meal might have gone while they endured a long wait.

Menu looked lovely with some very adventurous food - try the melon steaks with noodles which were delicious.
But we had to wait an hour for our food and the busy staff forgot to bring our drinks whilst we waited. Setting is nice on the waterfront but the bill was high - London prices. Maybe they were having an off day with the service?
