“Lovely ambience, good food & prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Pleasantly surprised by the interior, with great large Alice in Wonderland chairs and padded backs - a very nice ambience.

Luckily for us they were open on Good Friday, as we had friends visiting from interstate.

The croquettes had a lovely crisp shell (and if you have the 2 course set menu - turn into a very inexpensive entrée).

The steaks ordered were all delicious and cooked perfectly. The duck was tender and juicy, but the fondant potato was a bit dry - maybe if the orange reduction had been more than a dribble on the plate, it would have offset this.

The sticky date pudding with the macadamia nut brittle crumb and salted caramel ice cream was divine and very reasonably price.

The 2 floor staff were run off their feet, dropping things, and we struggled to get their attention occasionally.

Only suggestion would be for Larceny Restaurant to consider having dessert included in the 2 course menu deal. That way people could choose entrée or dessert and a main.

“Best in Launceston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

I often go to this restaurant, and it easily one of, if not the best in Launceston. The staff there are friendly and go out of their way to make your dining experience exceptional. The menu is carefully planned, and delivered with both quality presentation and stellar taste. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Launceston.

“Oysters Galore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

We went to this restaurant with friends for oysters. For starters we had natural and Kilpatrick oysters. For mains we had pork loin, lamb rump, beef fillet and ocean trout. We drank 2 bottles of Tasmanian 2007 Stoney Vineyard Cabernet Savignon - also delicous! Our waitress, Miss Laura, was delightful and worked very well as a member of 'a team' . The next table had a couple celebrating a birthday and enjoyed it when we sang 'happy birthday'. We had a very nice evening and the chef, staff are all trying hard to deliver a good experience. A memorable experience and well worth a visit. In fact I give this a very high recommendation.

“Great feed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful food, both had steaks and were cooked to perfection. Service was very good, nice atmosphere and decor. We were late to book but they still fitted us in, book earlier to limit the hassle.

“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

I went to Larceny with my husband to celebrate my birthday and it was simply amazing! Great atmosphere, amazing food and wonderful service. I couldn't have asked for more. I really recommend the croquettes and the home-made ice cream... yummy!!!!
