Started with a mix up with our booking which was rectified and complimentary drinks offered. Food was visually impressive but very small portions even for degustion menus. The disappointing thing was time. No one likes to be rushed but this was to the other extreme. Almost 5 hours we were seated with little portions of food-way too long.

Some very eclectic dishes appeared with the majority very... More

Interesting dinner. Everything looked fancy and appeared to involve every technique under the sun. They should have concentrated on getting some flavor in their dishes. Reasonable experience and entertainment, with liquid nitrogen, dry ice... Food wasn't great tasting enough to complete the picture.

As the old saying goes, "All that glitters is not gold". If it was management's intention to create a Fine Dining Experience at Hobarts, they came reasonably close, but some improvements could be considered. I recently dined one evening, with friends. We had a 7.00pm reservation. After being seated at a very well laid table (silver service, linen, quality glass-wear)... More
