Seafood for lunch was nice and fresh. Service was great. Prices not too expensive. Close to Seahorse World and Platypus House.

The salmon on the seafood platter is house-smoked and the rest of it is truly Tasmanian - excellent. Service friendly, timely and demonstrated excellent knowledge. Tip: take a designated driver and stay for hours in the sun drinking Chartley Sauv Blanc!

Just up the road from Beaconsfield is this little gem. Morning tea sitting on the balcony on a perfect autumn day - who could ask for more.

If heading to Beauty Point put this place on your stop list, it was the perfect place for lunch, the seafood was amazing and all locally prepared. If I could I would say 10 stars, it was awesome, great service and great location.

Enjoy casual dining on the banks of the magnificent Tamar River. The River Cafe, at Beauty Point, specialises in seasonal menus prepared in-house with fresh Tasmanian produce. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner you will be captivated by the lovely views presented by the changing moods of this beautiful estuary: fantastic scenery, prolific bird life and the occasional show by the Tamar's resident seal. Located just 100 metres from Seahorse World and Platypus House, and a few kilometres down river from the Beaconsfield Mine Museum, you will be pleased you made this short diversion where you can dine in comfort in our modern, family friendly restaurant, or bask in the southern sun out on our extensive deck. Both overlooking the waterfront vista: every table has a view! Fully licenced and with an extensive menu, The River Cafe offers you: • Fresh seasonal Tasmanian produce, with all meals prepared to order in house; • A wide range of gluten free and vegetarian options; • An a la carte menu ranging from snacks to main meals that satisfy the hungriest diner; • Gourmet pizzas, all made on a home-made crust with the River's own special pizza sauce; • Delicious desserts: designed to tempt; • A wine list that showcases the wines of the Tamar Valley; • And of course: fantastic coffee!
