We stopped by after checking out the Mount Nelson lookout for a quick coffee/tea and scones break before heading back to Hobart. We asked to sit inside as it was a little chilly outside (we had 3 kids under 3 with us), however the owner insisted we sit outside in the cold despite the establishment being empty, which we suspect...

We happened on this brasserie and had an amazing dining experience. Atop Mt Nelson, with a view over the Derwent, we had a lovely long lunch with great Tassie wines and ate off an extensive menu. We tried the Wallaby, seafood chowder & pulled lamb tacos. Every meal was a taste sensation and was wonderfully served by the host and... More

Don't know why this place advertises takeaways. Arrogant man who served us had to hunt around for a tea bag to make a very ordinary cup of tea. Coffee was ok, but both were very expensive. Wish we had gone elsewhere.

A surprisingly good little place to eat with a fantastic view. The staff were very attentive and we even got a piano solo from the manager. Food was excellent for a brasserie style restaurant. A great option for lunch

I'm a single traveller & on entering the premises I was given a menu. I requested to sit outside & chose one of the empty tables to absorb the beautiful views whilst waiting to place an order. A short time later I was told to move to make way for 4 people who came to the restaurant some time after... More

Good food and service with the best views of Hobart and the River Derwent. The use of local produce enhances the experience.

An excellent restaurant; the Signal Station has a first class menu (particularly sea food) and great wine to match. Remarkable views over the Derwent River with all its bays and islands. The restaurant even has a bird garden attracting Blue Wrens and many other birds. Thoroughly recommended.

We had an delicious breakfast seated on the verandah with a an amazing view. Every staff member we met was friendly & attentive. Our meals were beautifully presented & cooked to perfection. The menu is extensive & well priced. We'll definitely be returning & recommending to locals & visitors alike.

I was in awe of the views when we got here and would go again because of them however the coffee was the worst coffee I've ever tasted - like someone forgot to clean the machine or old off beans? I'm not usually one to write a bad review but I really do hope they look into this as I... More

We had a most delicious breakfast looking out at a spectacular view of the water and hills around Hobart. Had the world's best chocolate banana muffin and spiced apple cake. Off the beaten path. Would love to return someday!
