Best food I have had for along time. The Bloody mary oyster shots were to die for. The Rock lobster pate was incredible but the Coffee steak is enough just to make me fly back from melbourne . Well done guys for a great night with great service. Jeff Richards Go swannies

This restauran tin famous Salamanca Place is great for coeliacs/gluten intolerant. Lots of dishes are gluten free.For entree I had the salt and pepper calamari which was delicious. Being winter I went for the beef rissoles with mash and vegetables. The rissoles were quite big and I could eat only one. Service was friendly and attentive. Recommend.

I can't write about the food in this place as we didn't get further than standing in front of the bar while we were ignored, then patronised, then spoken to rudely. We had a booking for two on Saturday night and when we arrived, on time, we were left standing at the door after being told "we are very busy".... More

My husband and I enjoyed dinner here whilst holidaying in Hobart. The staff were friendly and efficient, and accommodating of our baby by providing high chair and a table with enough room for the pram. The food was fantastic, my husband had the eye fillet with their signature coffee rub which he said was delicious and cooked perfectly. I highly... More

My daughter n sister ordered a lemonade and gin n tonic, which arrived in about 10 mins.. I ordered a... More

What a hidden gem. Slightly annoyed that they weren't opened for lunch when we were at the Salamanca Markets, but the wait until 5:45pm was worth it. We ordered the calamari, 1/2 dozen oysters and the tempura prawns. Can't fault a single thing. Also had some lovely sav blanc - Relbia. Great ambience and pleasant dining - highly recommend.

Had lunch here. Found it to be expensive for what you got. We tried the seafood chowder - couldn't find any seafood in it - it was like a white sauce, rather than a chowder, which was very disappointing given previous reviews. Sure the white sauce was nice, but definitely not a seafood chowder. We then tried the lobster pate... More
