We had sampled on a few occassions some of the food that Cable Station is famous for, such as the char-grilled Octopus with basil pesto and balsamic reduction at both Festivale at the Farmer's Market in Launceston, and have always wanted to visit the restaraunt itself due to its use of local produce and isolation - we weren't disapponted. On arrival we pleasantly discovered that we were the only ones dining for lunch today. Euan, the part-owner and chef, was super friendly and simply an amazing chef. My girlfriend had the salmon with green beans, anchovies, olives, slow roasted tomatoes and potato which was beautifully cooked and full of flavour. I had the slow-braised cape grim blade with shalots, potato and leek - simply incredible and no use of knife required as the fork would easily cut through the meat. It was the most tender and flavoursome cut of beef that I have ever had. Combined with a beautiful atmosphere and a 'no-rush' policy towards service and ensuring the diner has a rewarding experience, Cable Station is the best. Thanks so much!
