The menu choice is always interesting and food preparation exemplary. Students under expert guidance prepare, cook and serve high quality food. No other restaurant has maintained consistent quality over so many years. Luncheon on three days a week only, booking essential. Happy hour early Friday evenings.

This is a great place to stop for a meal with everything you would expect in a restaurant. The food is great and while it is a teaching restaurant service was great.

This is a trade school so it's run by students (Students In Training). There can sometime be a wait but it's always an interesting menu with a good wine list and ridiculously low prices. Just remember, you're helping the students in their future endeavours in hospitality.

Fantastic wine selection showcasing many of Tassie's finest. Choice of three entrees, main and desert. Mains $15 and entrees $9. Presentation and taste excellent. Open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday but not... More

First visit back to Drysdale in some years & left me wondering why it had taken us so long between visits as our earlier visits had always been most enjoyable. The welcome was very assured & we were quickly settled at our table with water provided unobtrusively & quickly. Pre-lunch drinks were promptly arranged with only a minor glitch for... More

Have been here for lunch three times in the past three weeks. Again the service is always excellent and great to see the wait staff learning their skills. The wine list is excellent with great Tassie wines on offer at an affordable price. Only matter I would raise is that the menu had not changed at all and on the... More

Dining at Drysdale is about allowing students to hone their skills on you - both front of house and in the kitchen - so there can be the occasional glitch, but then that can happen where the staff are fully qualified! At Drysdale you are rewarded for participating in training future generations, a three course meal cost us $31 each.... More

They may have their L-plates on -- but they do a good job. I had a pork vindaloo and my lady-love had a sushi plate both pretty tasty my papadums could have been crisped up a bit more, and I would have liked a few more porky bits in my curry The real plus of Drysdale is their beverages They...
