Great to have such a beautiful dining option in our hotel. Service was excellent. We had a couple of entrees, calamari and chicken wings and then shared a spaghetti dish with a bottle of Devil's Corner Pinot Noir - beautiful seating!

The salmon pate for entree was very tasty but we were expected to eat it with our fingers as there was nothing to accompany it. When we asked about it we were informed that it was meant to be eaten with the dukka and toast that we also ordered. Not sure what we would have done if we didn't order both. My med-well steak came rare and after sending it back I was given the same steak cut into 4 pieces and recooked. We waited 20 minutes for a drink refill before flagging a waitress to get us another. None of our meals were satisfactory and I left without eating after refusing to eat a twice cooked steak. Overall our experience was very poor.

The venue: warm, quiet ambience, extremely comfortable seating and quality, tasteful decor. A place where you quickly get comfortable.
The staff: friendly, attentive and efficient, they know their menu.
The food: delicious, cannot fault anything.

A party of three, we shared two serves of duck spring rolls for entree and they were fantastic! Meaty in a crispy wrap with a tasty sauce on the side.
Our mains were Pork Belly Bites with Asian Slaw, and from the grill, Butterflied Lamb Rump and Pork Belly.
All were perfectly cooked and presented. The pork belly just melted and was topped with perfect crackling. The potato wedges (served with chargrilled mains) were crispy outside and wonderfully fluffy inside... I've never had better.
We also shared sides of buttered greens and tomato bocconcini salad. We really didn't need sides as the meal size is very generous.
No room for dessert... next time.
Excellent wine list, plenty of "by the glass" options.
Price: yes mains are between $30 and $55 but the highest is for a 450g steak!! Our meal including four alcoholic drinks came to $150 which is great value considering the quality and service.

Our opinion - best restaurant in Launceston, easily 5 star. Recommended for couples, small and large groups, especially for celebrations. Our new regular go to.

I was taken here as a guest by dear friends who have eaten here previously, the atmosphere was great and something I really appreciate was the lengths the owners have gone to, to make the place absorb noise.
There are padded booths, carpet on the floor and upholstered chairs at the tables, all designed to absorb the noise that busy restaurants seem to crest.
The friendly greeting was nice, we were seated promptly, and our drinks organised quickly, our food arrived as ordered and well prepared and the steaks cooked as requested.
No complaints at all, mains were in the $35-$45 range a bit pricey but nice.
If you are looking for a nice intimate dinner or lunch try the Larceny it won’t disappoint.
