Feeling very underwhelmed. Was expecting a mouth watering tongue tickling experience. But ended being an over hyped, over priced ordinary steak experience.
Don't get me wrong. The food wasn't bad.
Not at all.
It was good.
There is a big gap between the...price and the goods.
At the price I was expecting
Not extraordinary like say the Astor Grill in Hobart.More
I would rate this restaurant as one of the best restaurants in Launceston, especially for steaks. We were in Launceston for eight nights and tried quite a wide range of restaurants. we had oysters, king fish sashimi and then cape grim steak on the bone....Food was faultless.More
My colleague and I were brought to the Black Cow during a work trip. Inside the restaurant is cosy (small) which I don’t mind.
The food was impeccable. I had the eye fillet which was cooked to perfection and so tender and juicy. The potato...galette was delicious but my favourite side was the sweet potato with preserved yoghurt. Sounds such a strange pairing but it worked so well!!!! The wine was amazing but pricey at $19 a glass.
It was pricey, but the best dinner I’ve had at a restaurant in a long time.More
Steak at what was once a butcher shop is, as expected, the best you’ll find in Launceston.
Fresh farm sourced ingredients for the cuts and other delicious dishes 🍄🥦.
Extensive wine selection, local and imported.
Great TAS beers/ciders too.
Excellent friendly staff who are very...helpful with food and wine selection.More
The atmosphere in this converted butcher shop is charming, with our Argentinian waitress, charming. But for $50+ for 300g of steak and not much else on the plate, one would expect perfection; instead, nicely done but not melt-in-mouth. Everything is extra: $2/slice of bread, $2...extra sauce etc. Wine pricing was commensurate.
Not usually have to spit out food at this price point, but baby asparagus ends were bitter and fibrous, green peppercorn sauce sour to the point of unpleasant pairing with steak. I was offered a far better truffled béarnaise as replacement.
This place gets 3 sittings a night, so it’s obviously popular enough.More
This was our second visit to Black Cow Bistro and won’t be our last. A real treat, the steak is cooked to perfection with great flavour. Great wine selection and a relaxed atmosphere. Staff were friendly and attentive.
My husband and I went to this restaurant. We are foodies and felt the food offered was extremely average and seriously overpriced. I had a streak, with a slice of a potato dish and 1 piece of a green vegetable. Quite frankly it was a...shame and a disgrace to serve such little food and with a slice of sourdough bread at $3.50 is beyond a joke. We ate at their other restaurant Stillwater which was excellent. Also the service here is poor, not interested and only wanting to make money .Bistro style uncomfortable chairs and in a corner overlooking the street. We could not wait to leave. Sorry but there are better restaurants around.More

Short answer no, we are fully licensed and are recognized for having the best list in Tasmania (according to the wine list awards last year). If it something very special it needs to be cleared by the sommelier first (to ensure it’s not on our list) and a corkage fee would be applied.
