It was the perfect end to an extraordinary day at Mona. We sat on the balcony and watched the Sunday afternoon entertainment below. The tables were fabulous, another great experience eating off the garden. The inside table were just as curious. The food was OK,...More

We had a wonderful meal here. The menu is well considered and a sort of Asian fusion. The full wine list is overwhelming and extensive. The short wine list is good but be warned the wine by the glass options are on the sweeter side....More

We spent a full day at MONA with lunch at Source in the middle. Some reviewers have mentioned slow service but after being on our feet for 3 hours we enjoyed a leisurely meal. We had booked well in advance and had a corner table...More

We ate lunch at the source. Two fish dishes, salad and a cheese platter. The blue cheese was good; the cheddar was ancient, hard, and tasteless. Service was slow and inattentive. Where else can you eat on a table surface of growing green plants? Terrific...More

Got to try this restaurant for lunch. Loved the tostada with crab, the duck salad though it was way more than that...and the pork belly was delicious. Loved the grass tables outside but am still working out how the plates sit on top! Really enjoyed...More

This restaurant came highly recommended by word of mouth and by Wine Spectator. The tables were interesting--each a little different such as glass covered sand and seashells. The chairs were comfortable, but the arms were too high to allow you to get very close to...More

Just wonderful! The food, wine and service was impeccable... and desperately needed after fighting the crowds and staff at Mona! I’d highly recommend the oysters with lemongrass, coriander, chilli and salmon row, the pork belly and the lamb! Yum!

Not sure if they allow you back into Mona after you have left. While the Source Restaurant is right next to MONA it is not actually in MONA...you need to exit MONA to go to Source. We went to the Source before MONA so did... More

I agree with David R, taxis are not expensive and there are often a few just outside the restaurant waiting to take guests back into Hobart. I wouldn't risk rushing your meal just to get the ferry. The ferry is $20 each... More

The Source Restaurant takes its name from the John Olsen painting that hangs in the ceiling of the foyer. Its focus is on local seasonal produce, presented according to the whim of Vince Trim (ha), our Executive Chef, and his team. Shared plates, fresh, uncomplicated food, and a lovely outlook over the museum grounds. À la carte breakfast and lunch, Wednesday - Monday. À la carte dinner, Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm.
