Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The Den is a great spot to stop and have a cocktail from the innovative extensive menu. Sam,in particular, made our visit memorable with an impromptu tailored cocktail which was delicious. His warm personality and welcoming vibe was appreciated and definitely recommend a visit.

Been here many times and was disappointed this time. Food is over priced (for amount served) and I am sure that the amount of food is getting smaller each visit. Shared quite a few plates among four and went home hungry! Didn't have a mid...strength beer on tap, only had a light beer in a stubby! Had to ask three times for water; forgot to make cocktail ordered.More

Awesome lunch today. For three. We shared three bao bun plates, pork belly (delish), duck( lip smacking!) and crispy chicken (a little spicy but yummy), satay skewers (least impressive selection but still yummy) and gyoza platter. The service was excellent and friendly, drinks served quickly...and, for our last Tasi meal, it was a great choice.More

Great atmosphere, excellent food, friendly service. We sat inside, I think it might be nicer outside next to one of the open flame heaters though because it was a bit cold inside. My only criticism is the bench seating is very low, making it like...sitting on kids seats, which became uncomfortable fairly quickly. I would definitely recommend this one and I am sure I will be back.More

Visited The Den last night for dinner. Food was nice and was served quickly. The Den is small and tables are very close to each other. Music is loud and you need to scream to communicate with your friends, this means it's impossible to have...a private conversation. Lighting is poor and we had use the flashlights on our phone to read the menu. I'm glad we visited to see what the fuss is about but we won't be back here again. We left shortly after eating and felt really uncomfortable to be seated so close to people who we don't know. Very awkward to be within in arms reach to other customers.More

This is a cool yet warming funky restaurant and bar which is very conveniently located. The staff are very attentive and the range of drinks and food is excellent. We ate in the centre down by the fireplace which was very cosy on a cool...night. Tapas style was on the menu for us. We had a number of dishes from the menu which were awesome. Asian fusion styled and totally hit the spot. A great range of wines to suit. We had a great time, even got to chat to some diners next to us (we don't normally do that by the way) to share our experiences. We'll be back when next in Hobart. Worthy of a repeat visit.More

A pleasant place for a drink during a public holiday Monday. Prices were a bit more than I expected ($13 for a cheap glass of wine) but the quality was good. Bar code ordering at the table wasn’t working - maybe because I was connected...to dodgy free wifi. It took a while to get service at the bar. Very nice inside. I guess you get what you pay for.More

Four days in Hobart and every night a drink before going to a restaurant. Efficient service (a little pricey compared to others in Salamanca) but great atmosphere. Bar snacks looked great but we only had drinks before going to a specific restaurant.
