Another memorable lunch at Stillwater. Booked for two and our window table had lovely water views. As usual we started with a glass of Tasmanian sparkling wine. The wine list is thoughtful and offers a good range by the glass for those keen to look...More

A wonderful experience. Finally got to Stillwater after several visits to Tassie and it has lived up to the expectation. Chose the degustation menu, it was not just a smaller version of the main menu. Food was excellent, Tasmanian sourced, well made and presented, and...More

It's a remarkable spot right by the Gorge. In a place of this standard, you really can't go wrong with the Chef's Selection, and we sure didn't. The scallops, steak and morwong fish were fab, but the standout was in fact the basil cake dessert!...More

We had a few drinks in the bar on a Sunday afternoon - very pleasant with excellent friendly service. We returned the following morning for a delicious breakfast outside on the deck.

This place is living on a reputation which is not justified. It is very expensive especially as it now charges 1 1/2% for credit card payment which says it all. "We are number one, arrogant and do what we like! The wine is very pricey...More

Go up stairs to the gift come cafe, and you will get a special surprise. One of the best cheeses/meat platters in Tasmania. With a glass of wine and the views of the Tamar River you could have thought you where anywhere in the world....More

We popped in here looking as it is recommended for picking up some gourmet Tasmanian supplies. We thought we would also have a quick bite and while initially it looked like it was trying to be fancy and capitalise from the tourist trade we were...More

The food is good but it is extremely expensive and the dishes too small. It was my first and my last time there.

This is a gorgeous restaurant with some amazing dishes, like gnocchi to die for, maybe the best we have had; chicken excellent and the salmon entree also delicious. Unfortunately the small dishes are small for the price, beetroot salad especially overpriced. My recommendation if you...More

Local Food, local wine, local talent.... Stillwater's food and wine philosophy: Our food is fresh, grown locally by passionate producers who rely on the attributes of our natural environment. Our State regulations keep the modification out of our genetics, the artificial out of our hormones and the free in our ranging animals. We know grass fed, antibiotic free, natural, happy animals make better meat....even if they aren't 'super sized'. Our water is clean, sourced from Cape Grim on Tasmania's North West Coast, home of the cleanest air on the planet. Our wines flow from around the State but being located in the Tamar Valley means Stillwater is a cornerstone for the local vignerons hosting a list that showcases the highly respected local tipples. Stillwater Partners: The Stillwater owner partnership is home grown as well, raised in a community that nurtures its youth and cares about its neighbours. Stillwater Restaurant: Being fortunate enough to live and work in one of the most beautiful places on the planet is one of the bonuses for the team at Stillwater River Cafe, Restaurant and Wine Bar. Situated in the historic Ritchie's Mill at the mouth of the Cataract Gorge on the banks of the Tamar River in Launceston, Tasmania the restaurant glows with the authentic warmth only an 1830's timber building can offer. The casually elegant ambiance ensures guests feel welcome and comfortable whether enjoying a casual breakfast, corporate lunch, special dinner, a glass of wine after work or just a coffee. Comprised of a number of spaces Stillwater has a main dining room that seats guests comfortably amongst the Oregon timber beams and Kauri pine floors and the original bluestone wine cellar full of character as well as fabulous wines. On fine days the outdoor courtyard offers views overlooking the Tamar River and the Wine Bar adjacent to the entrance is a great retreat for a bar snack and cocktail. Stillwater is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch and Tuesday* through Saturday for our indulgent evening menu (*subject to winter hours), reservations are highly recommended. A vibrant centre of the local community, Stillwater has achieved many hospitality, wine and business awards over the years from local to National for all aspects of the business. Stillwater Providore: The food theme continues throughout the building with The Providore above Stillwater showcasing our fabulous local produce in a deli and food shop alongside talented local arts, craft and homewares.
