(various, at the docks): Fish Punts
We arrived in Hobart in bright sunshine and ate lunch at Constitution dock, buying fish and chips from one of the several small floating seafood takeaway boats (punts) moored there.
Eating Fish & Chips at the docks from these is like an institution in Hobart. (You can also buy fresh fish here)
Even businessmen were buying takeaway fish & chips and sitting on benches beside the water front, just like we tourists were.
It was a nice place to sit and look at all the boats and yachts moored there and watch the people go by. With interest we watched a fancy speed boat pull up beside one of the punts, order lunch, and a few minutes later load it on board and speed off again.
That would be the life!
Favorite Dish: Fish & Chips, of course.
We had a nice ice cream at the large Mures seafood restaurant right beside the docks (they also have great tasting inexpensive short black coffee, reports my husband)

Eat in Mures!: Eat in Mures!
In the morning till late afternoon, there is a corner at the Lower Deck where fresh seafood are sold.
Favorite Dish: The Mures Fish Center located at Victora Dock offers great seafood! We ate at the Lower Deck whcih is a busy self service licensed seafood bistro. If you have extra cash to spare, then make your way up to the Upper Deck a la carte seafood restuarant with its great location that offers a view of the dock. The resturant claims to use the freshest product on both decks, but honestly the 'fresh' oysters at the Lower Deck is not that fresh! But other than that, we had enjoyed our fish and chips and ice-cream (2 giant scoops for A$2.80)!
Mures Restaurant: Mures Restaurant
Right on the water on Hobart's Victoria Dock, this restaurant is one of Hobart's landmark being involved in fishing since 1965 and restaurants since 1974. Whilst I don't think the new dockside Mures is quite the same as the old Mures in Battery Point ... the food is the best!
Favorite Dish: The Sushi at this place is the best I have tasted in the world! They also have take away fish and a full a-la-carte restaurant upstairs
Muures Seafood House: Dont go to this Over-Rated seafood house
This Place was highly recommended -made a reservation and it the was MOST DISAPPOINTING part of my whole stay in Tasmania --Food was of the poorest quality serving size was small -Fries were greasy and the shrimp and scallop combo meal served on the UPPER DECK where the food is supposed to be alot betten the downstairs was terrible had no flavor - save your money and get a better meal at the canteen located right outside the restaurent on the pier - Pass this place up ..
Favorite Dish: NOthing

Mures Seafood Restaurant: Don't Miss The Fresh Seafood!
Fantastic meals in upper or lower deck. Close to the center of town and a great place to meet up with friends.
Lower Deck is filled with stores selling fresh seafood, meals and desserts. Upper Deck is a restaurant with wonderful meals, if a little more expensive than normal restaurant prices but well worth the money.
Favorite Dish: Their Seafood Chowder is legendary!
Seafood, seafood & seafood!!!
Set on an upper deck, with an exceptional view over the Marinara or port. Very nice and quiet for a romantic nite out...
Favorite Dish: The specialities of the restaurant is, of course, seafood!! Well, I could live on seafood-seafood baskets, grilled fish, calamari rings, fresh oysters....
