Went here for breakfast. Service was cold and made you feel like an inconvenience. Coffee was ordinary and food tasteless. Thought it would be hard to go wrong with poached eggs on toast. Water from the eggs had soaked through the bread and made it soggy. Yuck! Disappointing experience as we sat out in the warm sun and a nice... More

Homemade schnitzel for the parmigiana topped with beautifully cooked vegetables or salad. Lovely chips. Exceptional service. A short wait on a busy night. We were apologised to and given complimentary fries for our wait time which we actually weren't concerned with and didn't feel was that long. Here for four nights, will probably come back.

After a week in TAS and sampling all types of bars and pubs this place was a stand out. Service was A1, very knowledgeable about the drinks and promoted the area well. Both managers were very friendly which was great for me as a solo traveler. Thanks guys, will come again. Oh , and the food aint bad either.

We came here for dinner our first night in Launceston, as the street vibe looks good. She had the lamb fillet, and I had the wallaby. Both dishes were overcooked, and the meat was tough. The flavours and presentation were good, so a minor issue spoiled the meal for us. We returned for a drink a week later, mid afternoon,... More

We always go here for a couple of Fat Yaks before "whatever" but haven't eaten here. Have seen the food and chatted with others who have and would appear ok. We usually go for something different to what we can get at home, so we look for different culture quisines.

Went here for a wine with my partner and a snack. Wine was fine however food was average - got the 'Duo of Dips' but the hummus was clearly off (smelled and tasted terribly). When the bar man was informed of this he just said nobody else had complained - terrible customer service.

I hadn't been here for a very long time but a friend suggested we meet here for lunch and I'm very glad we did. Great food, a busy, fun vibe and friendly, professional service (which is a big improvement on previous visits).
