“Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

We had lunch here after the Bruny Island Cruise. There is a nice view outside the hothouse and the food was hearty, if a little on the high side given the modest surroundings (but perhaps it reflects the cost of getting things to Bruny Island). Had the beef and guinness pie and beef burger. The chips that came with it are also lovely. Had scones afterwards which were also very good.

“brillant service, great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

the hothouse is a unique setting, great view down to 'the neck', the food is great, homely and unpretentious, its a bit on the expensive side but you wont go hungry. The wine list could do with some options but thats just being picky.

The service and food were top notch. One of the best meals we had in Tasmania! We will definitely eat there again.

“Hot house”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2012 via mobile

This place really is in a disused hothouse!! If the food hadn't been so good I would have found the place really disappointing. It has so much potential. Try it but ignore the surroundings.

“Unique, wonderful service and 'smoothies' to-die-for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

Don't leave Bruny Island without dropping in at the Hothouse Cafe. Great hosts Michael and Fiona will look after U with great food, coffee and smoothies while U enjoy a garden setting and great views over the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
