My sister and I shared a mixed plate grill which was perfect. The service from Jack was excellent and we were really impressed by the look of the desserts but couldn't fit one in unfortunately. Decor was modern but also included some historic pieces. All in all would recommend.

In the last 12 months, I've traveled to Launceston twice for business and been to this restaurant 3 times. Two of these occasions were 3 nights apart. That alone should speak volumes. I am genuinely impressed by the attentiveness, friendliness and professionalism of the staff here, everytime. They have the time for a brief chat if required but also don't continually come over to the table and bother you. The fitout is very modern and stylish and their menu is fantastic, lots of locally sourced produce from both the land and sea, inlcuding local Tasmanian wines which are just brilliant. It's actually quite good value as well and is a great night out, the best thing is as far as I can tell, they're one of the only (quality) restaurants that is open on Monday night in Launceston, big plus! Would highly recommend Cataract on Patterson to anyone visiting Launceston!

Had a meal there a couple or so weeks back.. horrible, it took an age to arrive and was just lukewarm. The young girl said she'd let the kitchen know when we flagged it. Reluctant to order a pudding but did and stressed we would like it hot. She said she'd ask the chef and at least it came warm. We think we were forgotten hence food that was lukewarm which I ended up leaving as it really was not nice at all. Poor, considering it wasn't busy. I don't think either of there restaurants will be getting our business again and personally I cannot recommend them either.

This restaurant had a great atmosphere, with wonderful staff. A substantial menu some of which can be served raw and cooked by the patron on a piece of volcanic rock that is heated to 400 degrees. Really couldn't find any fault here, we came in early while it was quiet. Apparently it can get busy and noisy as the night goes on.
First class for us.

Great atmosphere with food and service to match !
The pork belly was excellent and the scallops to die for.
Will definitely return.
