Great Fisch Restaurant with good lokal wine and view on the habour. Can be recommended. Go for the market fish and not the all fried fish basket.

We booked in for a nice dinner after checking out the reviews. In at 7 pm and looking forward to a good night. The staff were friendly and very fast and efficient. I wanted to wait for a while but my wife wanted to order the entree - so a shared plate of a dozen Kilpatrick Oysters for market price... More

We needed a late lunch and the restaurant was actually closed but the staff here happily served us a fisherman's basket to go with our G&T. It appeared to be a popular spot with outdoor tables as well as the lovely restaurant and water views.

This restaurant was one of the best we've ever been at. Very good service and the mussels were fantastic. If you ever come to Hobart, you shall try this restaurant...

A chilly morning in Hobart as I went in search of breakfast. Two days ago I had a beer at their bar and decided to try out the restaurant now. I was intrigued with the breakfast menu and ordered a Tuscan Baked Egg with Chorizo which came piping hot with slices of Turkish Pide. Wholesome and filling. Now to hit... More

We were on holiday in Hobart in Oct, 2016 and looking for a restaurant with good food and atmosphere. Walked past The Customs House on the way back from MONA and I was attracted by the historical stone building. I had 6 natural oysters for entrée. They were fat, fresh and juicy, probably the best I have ever had. The... More

We dined here twice during our stay as it was so convenient to just duck downstairs when it was a bit chilly! The menu is varied but a little pricier than expected. It was great to get a free drink voucher if you are a guest. I had soup one night and we had the schnitzel which was generous. I... More

This place does what it can to live up the harbor area. Good for a couple of beers and one of many meeting spots for locals and visitors.
