Great food, great service and AMAZINGGGG COCKTAILS. I wanted to drink the whole menu. Was definitely a highlight to our trip. I had the sangria with the raspberry, mascot, etc. and I swear they were dangerously good. If we didn’t have an event on afterwards I would’ve been at least 5 cocktails deep by the time dinner came around.

The food was also great, we did the mixed stone grill I think and it’s a bit pricey but to be honest we don’t have a lot of stone grills located in Sydney and we were on vacation so definitely worth it all round

Mixed range of Australian food with good portion for every dish. Nice taste. We tried lamb, steak and ribs and also oysters. Oyster is same quality of what we tried in other places in the lsland. Lamb is not as good as we tried at an outlet in Horbart. Steak is good. Rib is ok. Good thing is that the food portion is relatively big

Myself, daughter-in-law, 2 grandchildren visited Launceston staying overnight at Penny Royal. Cataract on Patterson was recommended to me so I booked and was extremely pleased that I had chosen this restaurant as t was so close to where we were staying. It was very busy however the staff were very friendly and attentive. We shared a seafood platter and it was one of the best I've had in fact we had a hard time eating it all, but was reluctant to leave one morsel. Kids enjoyed their meal as well - so well done Cataract on Patterson.

Cataract on Paterson fitted us in for a Saturday night dinner following a cancellation they had. Every bite was superb, from the scallop entree to the “surprise” main” and the cocktails and deserts. The attention from the waitstaff was fantastic (thanks Jem!) and the vibe of the packed restaurant was great. A highlight of our trip to Launceston

Went to Cataract on Paterson last week and ordered the special surprised menu cost $55. The menu has choice of fish or beef. Taste ordinary. I thought it was written in the menu that the dish came with soup and dessert. But turned out no soup and dessert. The scallop appetizer is good tho.
