My husband and I have regulary visited alchemy for the past year the cheap lunches are Devine but the service has dropped considerably in the last 3-4 months we were always served by the lovely bright and bubbley waitress who was quick and never got orders wrong and always had a smile even after dealing with tring customers. But recently we have found the service very abrupt by a dark haired girl, who seems to always be angry and another waitres just keeps forgetting our drinks it has really ruined our visits, please improve your service and get back the good waitress

Have eaten here a few times lately and have loved everything I have ordered. The parmigiana was beautiful and moist served with chips and salad. Salt and pepper calamari was also a winner really for the price u would expect much smaller servings. They also have a normal priced menu which u can order from as well. Drinks just on the top side of expensive but u don't have to have one water is free. Good service and lunch 12-3 which is good.

While looking for a place to eat dinner on our first night in launceston me and my partner came across this pub/resturant.
We both had the $20 steak special which can with a draft beer/cider.
The steak was awesome which was tender enough to cut with a butter knife.
The cider was good although a tad over priced.
The staff were super friendly.
And the whole experience was fantastic.

The kitchen closes at 9 pm so be early! The food is takeaway quality. I ordered the Parma chicken and it was awful. The chicken came with a huge amount of tomato paste straight from the tin and this was teamed with crinkle cut chips. This would be fine if they were charging under $20 but they weren't! Service was friendly. This was a Saturday night so I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the place to be open beyond 9!

Had the nightly deal of Steak and a drink for $20.00. It's a nice venue with a bar side and a restaurant side. The Restaurant was booked out so we ate on the Bar side, which was fine. Staff are super friendly. Food was good value with a beer or wine included. Steak was okay, a bit fatty...but some yummy chips and salad included. It's in a good downtown location and an easy choice with daily deals.
