I stopped in here to escape a wavy downpour whilst visiting the gorge. The cafe is located at the first basic, next to the chair lift and is a kind of covered terrace behind the gift shop. There is a pretty view of the water, bridge, chair lift and swimming pool. I ordered a chicken quiche and latter for $23.90.... More

Food was hit and miss for our visit to the restaurant. The decor is dated and doesn't seem to take advantage of the fantastic scenery inside the restaurant. The kiosk section is nicer for atmosphere, where you can appreciate the scenery and local wildlife. The food at the kiosk is pretty standard kiosk food, but quite good. For food at... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to dinner at the Gorge Restaurant and were so, so impressed with the quality of the food...just a beautiful meal and location, good value for money. Unlike some other reviewers, I had no problem with the prices...they were consistent with other "nice" restaurants in other cities and the food was very fresh, very well... More

Just stopped by whilst walking around the gorge. The spicy wedges were excellent and so was the coffee. Lots of peacocks around too.

We had burgers. They are very large. Burger pattie had a bit to much herb and spice for us. Nice range of desserts and slices. Sticky toffee was nice, cherry ripe slice not so much. Good teas, milkshake OK. good view looking over at teh gorge and watching chair lift. Disabled friendly

Again, this is the most wonderful setting for a restaurant in Launceston. The tranquility is only sometimes interrupted by wonderful noisy peacocks. The menu has variety, is interesting and it is hard to make a choice. The food was simply wonderful. A little bit more training of the staff would help to make the experience incredible.
