“Very enjoyable.”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

This was the only seafood meal I had in Tasmania that was actually fresh. The special of the seafood tasting plate was wonderful, the calamari melted in your mouth. I could have eaten 2. Well priced and great service. Thank you.

“Convenience and style”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Snappers Restaurant is located within the Mercure Hotel right in the Launceston CBD. The location is great with plenty of parking in and around the hotel and an easy walk from the main shopping centre. We called in one night for a quick meal.

The restaurant is modern and the staff are friendly and efficient. The menu is extensive but I chose a simple fetta and spinach ravioli which was fresh and delicious and I would certainly order it again. My partner chose the spaghetti marinara but felt there could have been more seafood in the dish.

We had previously visited the restaurant for breakfast on a couple of occasions and Snappers has the most extensive buffet breakfast I have seen at any hotel in Australia. Brilliant.

We'll be back for dinner and breakfast!

“Intimate dining, great service”
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Our evening SSR was wonderful, calamari entre was as good as it gets in my opinion, followed by a tasty even if a little chewy rump. Will be back next time we are in Launceston given the menu choices, helpful waitstaff, and welcoming intimate setting.

“Disappointing second visit.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

Went there for Christmas dinner, steak was burnt and done unevenly. Squid was tough. Tiger prawns were too tiny and average. Overpriced for the quality we got this time. At least the staff is still great...
