I took my mom to Felon's on a trip to Port Arthur. Felon's is situated at the Port Arthur Historic Site, but shares a room with the visitor's cafeteria which is operational during the day. Because of this, my expectations were low, but the ciders...More

Felons Bistro was way better than I expected for an evening meal. Excellent food, wine & service. Unfortunately it is about to close for 6 months while they re-develop the visitor centre

Good, fresh oysters! Nicely served fish and excellent cider. The ambience was so so, it's in the old prison building but it doesn't look like a restaurant, more like a fast food place. We were staying in Bluegum hostel and nothing around was open so...More

Tucked away behind a screen at the end of the visitor centre bistro we were surprised to find a warm fire and small dining area. Good selection on the menu and the lamb rump which I chose was fantastic. Highly recommended!

The food here was delicious, but quite expensive for the area. A good start to the nightly ghost tour.
