IMO this restaurant is trying to be too trendy for its own good. The menu and dishes blend was not exactly complementary in flavours and the octopus main dish we a real disappointment for my husband - 3 small pieces of ocy and "fat chorizo potatoes" were slithers at best. My fish was good and filling but the entree we... More

After seeing this cafe constantly full during our recent stay, we were pleased to finally find a free table for afternoon tea! A funky little space, obviously frequented by locals in the know. We had a odd combination of food (our choices entirely, not the menu's fault!) with a housemade Granola with Yoghurt and a toasty Croque Monsieur along with... More

Rain Check is very popular with locals and visitors alike. We had coffee and light brekky there 4 times and had late afternoon glass of wine on New Year's Eve. Great food, friendly, efficient staff. A must see venue if you're visiting Hobart.

This cafe is a little treasure in North Hobart! I am sure that all the locals are aware as yesterday being a Monday it was very crowded. They have all day breakfast dining during the week and my wife chose the "asian style chicken omelette" and complimented the chef as it was one of the best she had tasted. I... More

On an evening in North Hobart we called in at Rain Check Lounge and received an extremely warm welcome, despite it being a relatively busy night. Our server looked after us very well, recommended dishes and wine and also ensured our dinner was served in enough time to make a local movie. The food was good, with a nice varied... More

Some good and some poor aspects for breakfast here. Poached eggs were over cooked for all of us. The bread was just a few small bits of French crusty bread. Coffee was average too. Some of the sides were nice - the avocado and the beans recommended to complement an average breakfast.

It seems to be primarily a wine bar and there are couches to relax in. Otherwise s good choice of tapas type food nicely presented and with interesting flavours. Wine by the glass which is always helpful.

We had a fine time here - but service was slow. Good coffee and cute decor. Would probably go back for a drink rather than meal.

Consistency is important, and this place delivers. Wines by the glass superb quality, and the food delicious. Good servings, and staff attentive and knowledgeable. Cosy but still able to have private conversations. Anthony, take a bow!!

I had not been to Rain Check Lounge for some months as I had been out of the state. My return visit this evening (with two other guests) was disappointing. The service was slow in that no one asked if we wanted drinks. We did get water straight away. We had to ask for the food order to be taken... More
