This is a must for Breakfast or lunch, we dined here numerous times on our stay and every time it didn't disappoint. Eggs Benedict were a breakfast highlight. Wine list was amazing and the cocktail list doesn't disappoint.

We went there for lunch and really enjoyed our meal. I had a lamb wrap and it was melt in your mouth. Decent wine list, nice water views, great old floorboards. I'd go there again.

We ordered the salmon sushimi salad for lunch, having waited half an hour for any service at noon. Rehydrated noodles with a small amount of salmon in it, covered with fried shallots ( Asia out of a packet) soy and lime. Not a gourmet meal...More

Chosen for a special occasion. Great food, we had the chicken breast and ocean trout, plus sweets. Excellent service, attentive but not pushy. We mentioned a small problem, it was handled promptly and beyond our expectation. Great atmosphere and location by the river.

Stillwater is one of THE restaurants in Tasmania not just Launceston to visit, for several good reasons. Yes the food is superb, as a restaurant of this calibre should be, but it's unique location right on the waterfront, and hence the views, is a draw...More

Local Food, local wine, local talent.... Stillwater's food and wine philosophy: Our food is fresh, grown locally by passionate producers who rely on the attributes of our natural environment. Our State regulations keep the modification out of our genetics, the artificial out of our hormones and the free in our ranging animals. We know grass fed, antibiotic free, natural, happy animals make better meat....even if they aren't 'super sized'. Our water is clean, sourced from Cape Grim on Tasmania's North West Coast, home of the cleanest air on the planet. Our wines flow from around the State but being located in the Tamar Valley means Stillwater is a cornerstone for the local vignerons hosting a list that showcases the highly respected local tipples. Stillwater Partners: The Stillwater owner partnership is home grown as well, raised in a community that nurtures its youth and cares about its neighbours. Stillwater Restaurant: Being fortunate enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on the planet is one of the bonuses for the team at Stillwater River Cafe, Restaurant and Wine Bar. Situated in the historic Ritchie's Mill at the mouth of the Cataract Gorge on the banks of the Tamar River in Launceston, Tasmania the restaurant glows with the authentic warmth only an 1830's timber building can offer. The casually elegant ambiance ensures guests feel welcome and comfortable whether enjoying a casual breakfast, corporate lunch, special dinner, a glass of wine after work or just a coffee. Comprised of a number of spaces Stillwater has a main dining room that seats guests comfortably amongst the Oregon timber beams and Kauri pine floors and the original bluestone wine cellar full of character as well as fabulous wines. On fine days the outdoor courtyard offers views overlooking the Tamar River and the Wine Bar adjacent to the entrance is a great retreat for a bar snack and cocktail. Stillwater is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch and Tuesday* through Saturday for our indulgent evening menu (*subject to winter hours), reservations are highly recommended. A vibrant centre of the local community, Stillwater has achieved many hospitality, wine and business awards over the years from local to National for all aspects of the business. Stillwater Providore: The food theme continues throughout the building with The Providore above Stillwater showcasing our fabulous local produce in a deli and food shop alongside talented local arts, craft and homewares.
