We went to this restaurant purely by chance on our drive from Hobart to Coles Bay. We walked through the door at 2pm which is closing time for lunch, but we were greeted warmly and they were more than happy to serve us.
We both had chicken BLTs which were absolutely delicious, I especially liked the use of sundried tomatoes.
Service was prompt and friendly.
The restaurant has fantastic views over the Great Oyster Bay.
The bill was $36.80, including drinks.

Louise couldn't have been more obliging in making sure we had a booking even though there was a chance we would be later than the 8.00pm "latest" time. We arrived in Swansea at 4.00pm and as the weather looked "catchy" decided to dash up to climb up to the viewing
of Wine glass Bay, a projected round trip of some 3 and a half hours. Her comment, ring if you are running late and we will look after you. We did arrive by 7.50pm and were ushered to a window seat overlooking the sea. Delightful meal served by charming waitress and close attention be Louise. Thank you for a great experience and for your advice about Launceston eateries.

Such a nice restaurant. Our server was knowledgable and friendly and knew about wines. My husband had the Asian Beef Salad which he found delicious, spicy and fresh. I selected the salmon caesar salad - I did not expect to get smoked salmon (I was expecting poached) so I was even more pleased. It was plentiful, crispy lettuce, bacon and a really good dressing. Altogether a pleasant, well prepared meal with high quality ingredients. The setting is, of course, gorgeous, overlooking the water. Definitely would go back.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the proprietors of the B&B we were staying at. We were advised to book as it usually fills. The weather was dreadful, but the meal was excellent. We both opted for the chicken roulade. The veges in particular stood out - fresh steamed snow peas, broccolini and asparagus with a potato/ sweet potato bake. The serving was sufficient that we couldn't contemplate dessert. A very good wine list too.
