The menu was quite limited, as I guess it would be in such a place, but the quality and presentation of food was outstanding. Two of the three staff were excellent, the young girl taking our order was hopefully just having a bad day. Good value for money, and would definitely recommend.

Thank Lyall M

Had been looking forward to dinner here all day after a long day at Port Arthur. Had the vegetarian pasta (only vego option on the menu) and it wasn't great - bland tinned-tomato-based sauce and watery pasta. Partner enjoyed his oysters and steak. Both of us were underwhelmed by the service- the girl was nice but forgot our drinks, mix up in the kitchen left us waiting over half an hour for dessert to arrive. Next time we go back to Port Arthur we will go back to Hobart for a late tea. Certainly wouldn't recvomrnd for vegetarians.

Dear Jess

Thank you for your review of your recent experience at Felons Bistro. I am sorry that it was a disappointing experience for you with regards to both the lack of vegetarian food options and underwhelming service, followed by a frustrating wait for dessert.

Your feedback is valuable to us and as such we are currently reviewing our menu to develop vegetarian and gluten free options as well as conducting professional development with our front of house service team.

Please accept our sincere apologies for your less than satisfactory experience at Felons. I do hope that you might consider giving Felons a second chance if you visit the Tasman Peninsula again.

Sometimes the eateries at large tourist attractions can disappoint. Not so with "Felons" at Port Arthur Historic Site. We live in the area and it's our local restaurant of choice.

My partner and I ate here as part of the After Dark Tour.

The food was really, really good. We had the seafood entree, lamb for myself, steak for my partner, and chocolate pudding for desert. The seafood entree was quite large, and I particularly liked the pickled octopus. The lamb was very tender, and my boyfriend's rare steak was good.
