“Excellent meal, service and venue”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Not too often do you come across a place when travelling that has all three experiences - service, venue and a great meal. This place is a real find.

Beef was of excellent quality and the seafood platter excellent.

Well done to the team.

“Good food and atmosphere”
Reviewed April 19, 2014 via mobile

This has now turned into a regular dining place for us. Food is always fresh and well cooked. Service is friendly, prompt and very good. After many visits haven't had a bad meal yet.

“Yum!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I have been dining at the restaurant for quite some time now in it's previous setting and name "Watermill Tavern". I really enjoyed the experience there but started to feel that the level of food and service was surpassing the location. Recently a friend and I decided to head to the new restaurant for the first time and the first thing I thought was WOW! As we stepped into the restaurant we were greeted with the warm, vibrant atmosphere that we loved about the previous restaurant but now it seemed that the fittings matched the whole idea of this restaurant. The design and layout is rustic but classy and is like nothing else in Launceston.

The food was sensational with many favourites still on the menu and also some great new additions. I am a fan of the eye fillet here and as always it was amazing. Some excellent new additions to the dessert menu also and the competent wait staff were able to match our wines very nicely with our meals.

Overall the dining experience was nothing but superb. We will definitely dine here many more times.

This place will not disappoint.

10/10

“Stone Grill Awesome!!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I recently dined here with a group of friends and thanks to staff it was a great night out. The staff were friendly, well mannered and very courteous. I have a few food in-tolerances and when I explained them to the staff they were very helpful in accommodating me.
And if you haven't tried the stone grill yet...do yourself a favour and try it, absolutely awesome!!
Will be definitely back!!
