Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was booked to stay here for one night. Arrived from Hobart and decided to have lunch here. Swansea did not offer a cornucopia of delights for lunch. Absolutely one of the best lunches I have ever had. The Anchovy Toast was unbelievable.More

A tale of two parts. The vegetarian dishes lacked imagination and flavour. The non veggie food was lovely albeit with some gristle in the lamb. Great wine and superb venue and views. Yet another East Coast restaurant for whom vegetarian food seems to be afterthought...sadly. Our waitress from the UK was fantastic throughout. She also offered some rebate when we answered her question about whether everything was to our liking.More

If full, its a noisy room. Needs baffles, soft furnishings. Homestead winter menu is good idea. Bread, oysters, mussels all well executed. Failure was over main course service. Vegetables arrived, warm. Took ages for protein to arrive which again was luke warm and dry. Nothing...provided to bring whole meal together. Disappointing as it had potential. Service was good.More

Stunning place with gorgeous food and possibly the best wait staff in Tasmania. A set menu of Five courses truly reflected the area, with care and consideration obvious in every dish presented. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Nothing to be improved here.

What a beautiful establishment. Staff greeted us as we walked in, super friendly and professional, knew the food menu and were able to tell you about the different elements with confidence. The food was delicious, as someone who doesn't like beets I have been converted....The dessert tonight was amazing pastry perfect, flavours of the curds beautiful, marshmallow worked perfectly with the citrus flavours...and did I mention the bread OMG I could eat a loaf. Everything on tonight's menu was cooked too perfection, flavours on point, such a special way to spend our wedding anniversary. Thank you for hosting us.More

We were staying near Swansea for 3 nights, where the restaurants choices are mostly very casual, so decided to treat ourselves to a special night as Piedmont Homestead Restaurant is approximately 3 kms from Swansea. We arrived early so we could take in the beautiful...views - the beautiful homestead garden & pool and Great Oyster Bay. The welcome and service was warm and friendly…by a young woman who had just arrived from UK to work here. Unlike many restaurants around the country, Piedmont seems to have enough staff to give above average service, even if the staff varied a lot during the night. The chef certainly is talented as can be seen from the range of photos on this site (mine included) - their particular strength is presentation. Most of the dishes were 5 star delicious…while the dessert was pretty, it just lacked something…maybe a creamy texture along with “the crumble” may have helped but if you’re happy with a tiny/fruity dessert serve (we usually are) you might enjoy more than us. We don’t have big appetites so we generally found the “small plates” satisfying although perhaps a green side with the sirloin “main” would have been nice - as it’s a set menu (ie no customer choice) so for $130/head we were expecting just a little more. However we look forward to returning again.More

Great quality - the combination of courses, flavours and experience made this a real night to remember. The entree combination of cauliflower (which I normally don't like), scallops and an oyster were perfect. Each had its own flavour combination and was memorable. The king fish...was perfectly cooked and the duck (main) with asparagus was excellent. The brie and then dessert were a great way to finish. The excellent service which made the whole experience outstanding.More

Although 50 minutes from Coles Bay. I would not change to stay closer because the cottages are totally relaxing and self sufficient which was immensely handy in our Covid world; therefore we good relax after a day out by lighting the fire, filling the spa...bath, while dinner was heating up. With all blinds open taking in the view. Note— many resorts have a conference feel; here we felt in our own little secluded world of peace.More
