We were pleasantly surprised at the improvements made since our last stay. The restaurant is better organised and the menu list seemed much better. We think it is a bit in the expensive side especially for the wine list. Nonetheless we enjoyed our dinner and the ambience is pleasant.

My sons want to come here to celebrate my birthday. Saturday night we arrived, luckily we knew where it was, as there is no signage. We were greeted warmly and seated. I had been online before to see some pictures of their food, which looked amazing, but when I looked at the menu, none of those beautiful meals seemed to... More

Stayed at the excellent RCAV/RCAT to which this restaurant is attached and came here for dinner. Service was super-pleasant but incompetent, which is why just "average" rating. The basics were too frequently overlooked: appetizer arrived but the glass of wine ordered had been forgotten, bread-and-butter plates laid at each place, but no bread ever offered, check-in from waitstaff during the...

We don't normally eat at hotel restaurants but after a busy day sightseeing we decided not to go out but to eat at Charcoal at the RACV/RACT apart hotel where we were staying. And very glad we were at the end of our meal. Charcoal is nicely set up with tables set well apart. The surroundings are airy and pleasant.... More

On a recent visit to Hobart a friend & I ate twice at the Charcoal Grill. The restaurant is located in the RACV Apartments in Collins St & very close to the CBD. You need to enter the building at reception then go upstairs. The ambience is very pleasant & subdued. It's also very quiet. A small menu, prices at... More

While staying at the Hobart RACV club hotel, we chose to dine at the Charcoal restaurant on the first evening as we knew we would be tired from traveling. What a great idea that turned out to be. Very friendly staff, plenty of space between tables and a pleasant atmosphere to relax and enjoy dinner ... breakfasts too :) Table... More

The dining room had the appearance of normal restaurant associated with a hotel but the service and food were better than most venues set up within a hotel complex.

We had dinner there for 3 nights. All the steaks I had were superb. Cooked to perfection. I like mine medium rare. The wine list had some great matching choices for a reasonable value. They also carried the award winning Sullivans cove tasmanian whisky, blue label. Now it is off my bucket list. Beautiful

It's a shame Charcoal wasn't busy when we were there (Sunday night dinner in January when I would've thought it'd be peak holiday season), but we enjoyed almost (from memory besides ourselves, there were only 2 other tables) having the whole restaurant to ourselves! We were guests at the hotel as well, so spontaneously one night, decided to give it... More
