on the last few days of relatives visiting from the uk they said they had read in the lonely planet guide about peppermint bay for good food and great location, as we live in a great location at little swanport we thought it might be a nice day out, so after driving for approx 90min we arrive at peppermint bay and proceed to a table in the outside courtyard, order some drinks and four meals all different, the meals arrived in good time and the waiter was verry pleasant, but that was the end of the pleasantries as the meal i ordered was fillet steak main meal [as there was no mussels] all i got was two very small pieces of red meat on a metal skewer, when i asked the waiter if the meal came with any veggies he said only as a side order so i said i would like some veggies, ten minutes lates i was given a small bowl of lettuce leaves, thats $22..00 for the steak and i think they wanted $8.00 for the lettuce leaves which i told them at the desk when paying i didnt class the lettuce as vegitables so they didnt charge for the lettuce, very generous.
the other three meals ordered were ocean trout, well im glad it wasnt a windy day or it would have blown back in the ocean, tasteless and not much there for the money.
The pizza that was ordered was interesting to say the least i have never seen pizza with a little of melted cheese and loaded up with a pile that dreaded lettuce, shocking.
The last meal was the fish and chips which my wife enjoyed even though we could have bought it at hobart docks for half the price. all things considered the experience was not good and the report going back to the uk will allso be not good. oh well we tried.
