I admit to having had pre-conceived ideas of Black Cow before I ate there, and I almost wasn't going to write a review as I was in a bad mood before arriving, and I thought it wouldn't be fair. But the experience of dining there, the food and service, not only smashed my preconceptions, but completely lifted me out of my dark mood and transform it into a hugely enjoyable night. And that's what a great restaurant's supposed to do, isn't it? Provide an experience?
The food was outstanding. My wife and I shared entrees of pork belly and house-made salami. For mains we shared the Wagyu, which was one of the most amazing steaks I've ever eaten. And for dessert, the salted caramel thing which I can no longer remember the name of, but will never forget the taste! All this was accompanied by a great wine list and the most amazing, attentive service I've had in Launceston in years.
Sure, you pay a bit more to enjoy all these things, but it's money well spent. And if it meant I had to save a bit longer and go back less often, rather than having to endure cheaper but much lesser fare elsewhere, I'd consider it an investment.
