Went there after work one day with the family and wasn't expecting much and was very impressed with the food and the overall Menu. Highly recommended.

I stayed in the motel during my Tasmania trip and I had a few nice meals in the restaurant. I tried seafood, steaks and pasta and loved it. Fresh food well prepared and served nicely. Just perfect!

We stayed here New Years Eve. The food and service were excellent. The also stock wine by Velo, a local vineyard. We had steak and a Velo Pinot Noir. A great way to spend our last night in Tasmania.

Good, well cooked meals made from local produce by a knowledgable chef. The Abel Tasman restaurant and bar form part of the Abel Tasman Motor Inn just 10 minutes from the local airport. A truly complete package for the business traveller and families alike. We spent a wonderful week here and enjoyed excellent food in the restaurant. Thanks Cassandra and... More
