We had a excellent meal, good menu but could be more vegan options, attentive and pleasant service and nicely prepared food. Wine by the glass was expensive I had to have a second glass to get over the shock.

Nice and very busy brunch place- with really nice coffee and very nice staff. This restaurant is on the way to the cataract gorge walking trail, or rather we started the trail from here. Very nice brunch menu and again would praise the service and staff.

We went for breakfast and it was delicious. Even better that they had a cheeky glass of bubbles available if you felt like it. Made from Tassie produce. I'd definitely go back!

Dinner at Stillwater highlights the excellent dining experiences offered by Launceston. Located in a beautifully restored historic buildling - a flour mill on the banks of the Tamar - Stillwater has lovely views and seriously good food, featuring Tasmanian produce. I had oysters from Moulting Bay that were among the best I've ever tasted, followed by excellent blue-eye trevalla. My... More

Stopped here to enjoy a coffee after being recommended by others. The coffee was nice, staff friendly and the ambiance was lovely. Took a look at the Providore upstairs, a large selection of items available for purchase, but very pricey. I spotted a lovely Bridestowe bear (not the one with the lavender inside, just a plain teddy bear) and the... More

We have been travelling around Tasmania for a few months and we tried to book online for Valentines Day which was fully booked so decided to do the next night instead as we were told how beautiful the restaurant was. Well I would not know as I spent the evening looking at the staff entrance door as we were given... 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.
