Description: Local Food, local wine, local talent.... Stillwater's food and wine philosophy: Our food is fresh, grown locally by passionate producers who rely on the attributes of our natural environment. Our State regulations keep the modification out of our genetics, the artificial out of our hormones and the free in our ranging animals. We know grass fed, antibiotic free, natural, happy animals make better meat....even if they aren't 'super sized'. Our water is clean, sourced from Cape Grim on Tasmania's North West Coast, home of the cleanest air on the planet. Our wines flow from around the State but being located in the Tamar Valley means Stillwater is a cornerstone for the local vignerons hosting a list that showcases the highly respected local tipples. Stillwater Partners: The Stillwater owner partnership is home grown as well, raised in a community that nurtures its youth and cares about its neighbours. Stillwater Restaurant: Being fortunate enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on the planet is one of the bonuses for the team at Stillwater River Cafe, Restaurant and Wine Bar. Situated in the historic Ritchie's Mill at the mouth of the Cataract Gorge on the banks of the Tamar River in Launceston, Tasmania the restaurant glows with the authentic warmth only an 1830's timber building can offer. The casually elegant ambiance ensures guests feel welcome and comfortable whether enjoying a casual breakfast, corporate lunch, special dinner, a glass of wine after work or just a coffee. Comprised of a number of spaces Stillwater has a main dining room that seats guests comfortably amongst the Oregon timber beams and Kauri pine floors and the original bluestone wine cellar full of character as well as fabulous wines. On fine days the outdoor courtyard offers views overlooking the Tamar River and the Wine Bar adjacent to the entrance is a great retreat for a bar snack and cocktail. Stillwater is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch and Tuesday* through Saturday for our indulgent evening menu (*subject to winter hours), reservations are highly recommended. A vibrant centre of the local community, Stillwater has achieved many hospitality, wine and business awards over the years from local to National for all aspects of the business. Stillwater Providore: The food theme continues throughout the building with The Providore above Stillwater showcasing our fabulous local produce in a deli and food shop alongside talented local arts, craft and homewares.

My adult sons and I recently had lunch at Stillwater.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional, and we found the ambience of the restaurant welcoming. Such a lovely setting too.
The hot smoked salmon churros, pea risotto, the pork cotoletta, and market fish were delicious and well presented.
I would recommend this restaurant if you are in Launceston.
Thank you to the staff and chefs for making our time at the restaurant so enjoyable.

We have been here twice over the past few years and give it 10 out of 10. Food is different and perfectly cooked and presented. Staff are friendly and helpful. The restaurant is cosy. Wonderful place for a special occasion dinner or lunch. Just a bit far away from Sydney!

This a fairly new property but fair to say that Chris and co have absolutely nailed it. The rooms are exquisite, well designed and finely appointed. The restaurant and bar are also a treat and the attentive service from all the people was very welcoming. The outlook and position was also fantastic

As soon as you enter Stillwater you are welcomed with a smile with fab old fashion service. The rooms are insanely fabulous commanding a gentle view of the Tamar with its wildlife at the doorstep. The kitchen/pantry cupboard fully stocked with the best of the best Tasmanian produce, wines, spirits and indulgences. The bed was super comfy, with bathroom facilities first class. The restaurant food is beyond excellant and a fabulous menu. Congratulations to Chris and his team, you really are the best.
