Ate here tonight based on lonely planets recommendation and was disappointed with the quality of the food. They'd to check the packet the bases came from to see if there was any nuts in the ingredients therefore I think I'm correct in my assumption that the bases weren't fresh. Much thicker base than we prefer and the base wasn't dry.... More

Unfortunately the food once again was not up to standard that one would expect. We had family visiting from interstate and it was to say the least very dissapointing once more. The Pizza's two...

This is fast becoming our 'go to' when we want a reasonably priced family dinner, with reliably good food and very kid friendly. We've now been here a number of times and haven't been disappointed. Kids are really well catered for with chalk boards and colouring in. The kids menu has good options, only missing a pasta option :) The... More

Turned up with no booking on a bust Friday night and was shown to table for (4), service was excellent and the staff zip around the open plan dining area so efficiently, you hardly know they are there. Music playing but not too loud and made the room quite nice and was enjoyable to have some tunes ticking over while... More

A very friendly and attentive staff will look after you, this lounge bar has a beautiful view of the Derwent River. A great selection of entrees (small plates) to share, we had pepper squid and warmed olives, both were excellent. The pulled pork pizza was a bit disappointing as the flavour was not intense with the crust being a bit... More

Surprise find on our way back to Hobart after a big day at Bruny Island. Meals were fresh, delicious and a good size serve. I had the seafood and bacon skewers (came with chips) plus a side of steamed veggies. My friend and I enjoyed our meals here. Service was friendly.
