Enjoyable night with another couple. Enjoyed delicious entrees and the share platters between the four of us. Lovely way to finish our nine day tour of Tasmania.

On our recent visit we had the "Chef's Selection" menu. Having the five course menu was a great decision as you were presented with a small selection off the main menu with a couple of different Chef's preparations. The serving sizes were very appropriate both to curb your hunger but also sufficient to really enjoy the flavours. The waiting and... More

Stillwater is a lovely restaurant for a quick bite or coffee, or else a serious lunch or dinner. The menu is light Australian fusion with an excellent wine list and whiskey list. Good for couples or a family meal.

Me rocked up about 11 wanting drinks for 4... 2 adults and 2 kids. No seats inside, do we sat outside in the sun.... The waitress was quite good. All up, it was $21 for 2 coffees and 2 choc milk shakes. Shakes were a little slow arriving. Providore looked interesting. We were a bit rushed, which was our fault...... More

From the moment we walked in the door, we knew from the welcoming staff we were going to have a great night. The service was efficient and very friendly without being too familiar. Of course the food was also a stand out. Would definitely dine there again and recommend to anyone.

Description
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.
