Wow, we were taking a break from the art at MONA so lets do lunch. The table is a work of art, each of them different. The food delicious. Think crispy fried gnocchi pillows with tomatoes and creamy Parmesan custard. A really savory Miso quail egg. Grilled octopus, all charred but tender. Deserts a highlight, a special one for Vegans,... More

I love Mona, so I really wanted to love this place, but I'm afraid I walked away thinking 'that was good, but not quite as good as I expected it to be' - the food, and even more so the beer, seemed designed to be inoffensive, which is the opposite of what Mona stands for. But that's not to say... More

My partner and I had one of the best meals of my life on Friday, with the service, atmosphere, choices, presentation, and matching of flavours and textures all excellent. Also, new ingredients and surprises made this the most interesting and enjoyable meal I have ever had. Just like MONA itself, it was a feast of pleasure for the senses. Try... More

Beautifully located on the property. Enjoyed delicious food with so much thought in the menu. Wine delicious. They seemed under resourced to order food and drinks, was slow. But worth it when each arrived.

Was the food awesome? Yes absolutely. Was the venue amazing? Yes absolutely. Did our waitress provide outstanding service? Hell No! She even left out 3 bottles of wine off the bill? Why is it that Hobart has amazing food and appalling service? I need to open a finishing school for front of house service because people - once again, it... More

Maybe my expectations were too high but we were very disappointed with our lunch at The Source. Service wasn't what was expected firstly having to wait ages on hold to make the initial booking with no apology, almost criticised for calling when they're busy. After making the booking was contacted and requested to change to an earlier time as they... More

What a wonderful surprise this place is! The plant covered tables outside were just divine as was the food! We all loved every meal we had and the whole experience was amazing!

On a sunny day on the balcony of The Source, we had a table covered with live plants as tablecloth. As expected the service and the food was of exceptional quality. The Maitre D seemed a bit dubious first as we were not smartly clothed, living on a boat... But we enjoyed our lunch immensely. The view was a bonus.

The food and service here is wonderful. Although I am allergic to shellfish, and that is the majority of dishes on the menu, I was still able to enjoy the chicken. What was most impressive was the dessert menu. I saw about 4 different things at other tables and would love to have tried them all as the one I... More
