Absolutely fantastic restaurant and did not disappoint; the food and wine were just stunning. The service is just what you expect from a fine dining restaurant. But, if you find you have not enough room on your credit card to pay the bill? You can...More

Wonderful food, wine, service and vista!... the oysters and jamon to start followed by Beef Short rib and Harpuka. Delightful.

Lunch at The Source was a brilliant symphony of tastes and textures in a beautiful room. Now, it is expensive but we found the food lived up to the prices, service was very good. Book ahead and enjoy the innovative food with lovely views.

We had heard that this was one of the places that was a "must visit" when you are in Hobart. We visited on a Saturday evening. The decor is dark lighting with metallic tables and glass tops. We tried items from the appetizer, main and...More

My partner and I came here after visiting MONA. The views are amazing and staff were very professional. I had the Gruyere Soufflé and my partner had the Lamb. We shared seasonal sautéed vegetables. It was all delicious. We also had a surprisingly good dessert...More

Since our last visit, there has been an obvious intention to make this restaurant more approachable. The staff are more casually dressed, table cloths have been removed and the service much more relaxed. It disappoints me to say, the food was a let down, in...More

We had such high hopes given how good MONA is but the food and ambience wasn't that great (it was night time - so no view). For the money we spent we would have been better eating somewhere else. The meals were over complicated and...More

Is this within MONA - i.e. can you visit the museum, have lunch here, then go back to the museum without buying another ticket?

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
If staying in Hobart, what time is the last ferry back in the evening? If having a 7 course degustation, and starting at 6:30 or 7:00, would we be able to return by ferry at 10:30ish?

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.
