“Gluten-free,smart food with beautiful vistas.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Take one summer in Tassie,shovel in the magic of the East Coast and marinate the experience with vistas over Diamond Island and Bicheno's sparkling beaches...... and this dish is titled 'signature Tasmania.
Of-course the spotlight is on seafood,so we began oysters dressed in chilli & lemon grass and rose-steamed mussels. What a satisfying start. The duck breast sauteed in nut brown butter with orange polenta was to write home about. The smoked quail with roasted red onion and marinated cherry tomatoes . had my femme swooning.
If you like crayfish,everyone is ordering this dish,perfectly grilled and so good with chilled white wine. We are replete and very contented.
Bonus... this restaurant is gluten-free,inexpensive with smart service in an outstanding vista filled room. Congratulations to owner,chefs and staff.

Just lovely, service was excellent, Robert and Mark looked after us superbly. Good selection of local seafood with choices for those who don't want to eat seafood.

“Great food and setting, though pricey!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2011

Well, you really do have few options in Bicheno... and this may be the best. Of the 4 or 5 places to eat, I suggest this place. Remember, this is not Launceston or Hobart. The staff were attentive and the menu was really varied. Surprisingly they handled our large group very quickly and swiftly. We were staying here, so they had put together a large table for us. I suggest making a reservation for sure if you are not staying here... as the restaurant is small, and if the hotel is busy then you may be out of luck. If there are a lot of guests then the restaurant may be full. Yeah, if you want cheap and casual then eat in town... but if you want a nice meal out then dine here.

“Nice food, a bit expensive.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

We had a very nice dinner here. The view is incredible. The food was very nice (steak and pasta) and the service was good. It was expensive, however unfortunately there are few options around the park and even fewer open on Monday nights!
