The Drunken Admiral: Great seafood
The Drunken Admiral is an iconic restaurant in Hobart,it has been operating since 1979 and is still as popular as ever.It is renowned for it's fresh seafood but offers dishes such as steak for non-seafood eaters.The atmosphere is just wonderful with maritime memorabilia in every nook and cranny.My husband and I go there every time we visit family in Hobart town and have never been disappointed.Check out the Dead man's Gold museum upstairs,it has pirates and all--lot's of fun.Last time we were there the Drunken Admiral nearly killed me!!!!he fell off his perch and it took five men to pick him up and carry him away.Anyway I am alive to tell the tale and have the pics to share.It is more expensive than other places but well worth it just for the atmosphere.
The fish stew was my favourite dish,absolutely chock full of seafood and cooked to perfection.My husband enjoyed the scallops and...
Hamilton Bakehouse: Pies from heaven
This seemingly nondescript place in the middle of an almost nondescript village might surprise you by the number of people coming and going.The attraction inside is arguably Australia's best pie, or pies. I was tipped off about this place and went to try it. As soon as the baker gets the pies out they're sold which is even more surprising when you realise that they cost about twice as much as you'll pay anywhere else in Australia but, as I've always said, "Make a better pie and they'll beat a path to your door".That's exactly what's happening here and, from personal experience, I can tell you that they are as good as any pie I've had anywhere. Treat yourself, you won't be disappointed.
Pies, pies and more pies (but they do have cakes as well).
Closed: Soup - encore please!
Whilst deliberating whether or not to go up in a sightseeing plane we ventured across the road to this attractive looking restaurant and, after a menu surveillance, chose the soup. Vegetable as I recall.While we waited we could view the bay and tourist activity of waterfront windblown Strachan, a somewhat normal condition for this part of the world.
Our favourite dish? Vegetable soup. So impressed were we that after we finished our epic plane ride we immediately went back across the road for a follow up......and it tasted even better. Sorry, that's not really possible, it was so good the first time.How sad, on our next visit this place had closed. Hopefully someone else will take over in the future - I'll keep you posted.In the meantime you could try out the pie shop just a few doors down, you can't miss it.
Rosevears: Great view of the Tamar valley
Visit Rosevears Estate and sample their wine and friendly service. We also had lunch at the restaurant (dinner was not available then but they hoped to offer it in the future). There is also accommodation.We had the chardonnay tasting plate - a small piece of Atlantic slamon with peach, pear and chardonnay reduction; mushroom and beetroot risotto, a tart of quail and ricotta. This was served with 3 x 50ml white wines. Bread with olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper. Excellent.
Fish Frenzy: Fish & Chips!
I lurve the fish and chips here! Absolutely delicious! It is located at the Sullivan cove and it overlooks the consitution dock. If the weather is not so chilly, sit outside and enjoy the evening view.
What can i said? Battered Fish & Chips. =)
Daniel Alps at Strathlynn: Fine Dining Aussie style!
For fine dining in Tasmania you can't go past Daniel Alps at Strathlynn. Daniel Alps, one of Tasmania's top chefs, prides himself on the quality of his ingredients sourced form local and organic suppliers.

The Drunken Admiral: Drunk with Admirals?! - Hic!
Fresh local seafoods cooked to perfection - International dishes - accompainied by choice Tasmanian wines. Meals are are available for Non-Seafood lovers.The restaurant is in an 1820's warehouse and has nostalgic nautical decor.Price average compared to seafood restaurants in Hobart.
Mussels in White Wine and Garlic - served with cutlery but once the staff realised I knew how to eat mussles out came the bib and finger bowl - I even had other patrons doing the same thing!
Hallam's Waterfront: On the water in Launceston
Walk the gorge and have lunch here. There is a lovely view of the river towards the gorge. Grilled prawns with lemongrass risotto and grilled Trevalla, sauteed new poratoes and cucumber. Good service but extra charged for credit cards.
Peppermint Bay: Worth the drive - south of Hobart
We ate in the bar but there is a lovely restaurant downstairs and an open plan kitchen. Plus a shop/deli. Great food - Mussel in chilli and chorizo, Scallop & Salmon Pie, just two of the dishes available. Book or on a weekend get there early to get a table.
Angasi: Best views, best food, best price
Angasi has the most amazing views of the beautiful Bay of Fires. It is situated in the little town of Binalong Bay just north of St Helens. The ambiance of the restaurant is also great, but the best part is the food, it was really good value and also the nicest food we have ever had. It was all extremely fresh quality local ingredients and dont forget to try the Desserts as they were also fantastic, I recommend that anyone travelling down the east coast of Tassie must stop at Binalong bay and experience the amazing food and amazing views it has to offer.
