A quiet Tuesday night at Mr & Mrs Howell; we received very attentive service. Paella for him and lamb for me were fabulous. Seasonal greens were delicious. One brown ale pudding went down a treat. Wine fully priced.

Dine on Modern Australian-style share dishes – a fusion of international and local flavours with a distinct nod to Head Chef Mark Brozic’s Slovenian heritage. Depending on the time of year and occasion, graze on house-cured charcuterie, plump Tasmanian scallops and almond-encrusted goats cheese while enjoying a bottle of Slovenian Pinot Gris with friends. Alternatively, enjoy roast Flinders Island lamb with root vegetables as a Sunday night dinner with family, or drop in for a bowl of buckwheat gnocchi and a pot of beer from our monthly-rotating beer-on-tap.
