I chose Hobarts over a number of other options due to their AGFG 2 hat status. Unfortunately the experience didn't quite stack up to the promise. We had the seven course degustation. The first two dishes could have been great but were let down by...More

the 5 course degustation menu was outstanding. One of the diners was vegetarian and in her experience some chefs struggle to present an interesting meal- this chef nailed it- absolutely superb! This, combined with the wine waiter's(Mathew) knowledge made it a fantastic evening.
