If your planning on going for a meal in Devonport then this is a great place. I went on a public holiday and didn't see the notice about the the surcharge so it was an unwelcomed surprise.

The food was great, the atmosphere was good. On going to the toilet the door burst open and hit my friend which caused a trip to the Doctors. The views of the water anf the boats going by were lovely.

Both meals we ordered were disappointing. I had the pork rib and it was burnt. All you could taste was the charred pieces. My hubbie had lime pepper beef salad and it only had 4 small pieces of beef and no lime. The only good thing was the view of the Spirit of Tasmania leaving port.

As far as pub meals go, this restaurant is up there with the best. It is very popular, so booking is recommended. Situated across the road from the Mersey River, you are almost within touching distance of the Spirit of Tasmania when she passes. The meals are well cooked and plentiful. The chicken parmigiana is large and succulent and I... More

This place can get very busy so it is probably advisable to book. The meals are plentiful and the chicken parmigiana is probably one of the best around....quite large and succulent. I have yet to find a better mushroom sauce. The staff are constantly run off their feet but maintain a high standard of professionalism and friendliness. Great views across... More

Eating here on Saturday night for our nephews 21st I was looking forward to the new decor and menu. The restaurant was full, so obviously the tables had been pre booked, so why not put on more staff? The line was down past the bar for a good 45 minutes, so was expecting to have to wait..and wait we did!... More

What a busy place. Good meals. If you want a meal with a view I suggest you reserve a table. It is a bit hard to see a Keno screen from two areas in the very large bistro. Quick service and friendly staff.

The menu is basic pub meals. It is a very pleasant dining area. There is a views of all the boats coming and going. The atmosphere is typical pub but on a slightly higher level. The food is good and the size is appropriate. Prices are reasonable. Good family place to dine.

The venue was open on a public holiday with a surcharge on food. We ordered and the meals were a decent size. The steak was cooked rare (as ordered) and chicken schnitzels were a good size. Only issue, great to have fancy hamburgers but a normal burger should be standard as well.

Thank SarahMarra
