We had heard that this was one of the places that was a "must visit" when you are in Hobart. We visited on a Saturday evening. The decor is dark lighting with metallic tables and glass tops. We tried items from the appetizer, main and dessert menu items. Overall we found the food to be warm at best...the gnocchi fritto... More

My partner and I came here after visiting MONA. The views are amazing and staff were very professional. I had the Gruyere Soufflé and my partner had the Lamb. We shared seasonal sautéed vegetables. It was all delicious. We also had a surprisingly good dessert with pumpkin and maple. We could appreciate the cheeky humour with the dessert bowl shape,... More

Since our last visit, there has been an obvious intention to make this restaurant more approachable. The staff are more casually dressed, table cloths have been removed and the service much more relaxed. It disappoints me to say, the food was a let down, in the most simply ways. Some of the dishes were under seasoned, to the point of... More

We had such high hopes given how good MONA is but the food and ambience wasn't that great (it was night time - so no view). For the money we spent we would have been better eating somewhere else. The meals were over complicated and not really flavoursome. We much preferred the boutique, local eateries in Hobart.

Went to the Source with a Friend for lunch today. The food is fantastic!! Ordered the oysters baked with bacon - it's one of the best oyster dish I ate so far in Tasmania (this is the 4th time). Other dishes like the gnocco frittata, the duck salad and stewed beef are excellent as well. The strawberry cheesecake is a... More

Lunch here after a visit to the Museum. Food was great, interesting pieces displayed within tables of the restaurant (including some moss-covered ones outdoor). No complaints on the food. We had duck salad (super yum), oysters, beef and strawberry dessert. Every dish was well done and coupled with good service by the staff, one can always enjoy themselves at the... More

After visiting the Museum we went to the Source for lunch. It had a tempting menu. We both could not resist the seafood hotpot and it didn't disappoint. The lobster broth was delicious and it was rich in seafood. Our only criticism was it should have come with crusty bread. We also had cocktails which were well prepared. The wait... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch, the food was great and view was great. The service was average and the chairs don't fit under the table so the arm of the chair hits the top of the table. Especially if you're a guy with thick thighs or tall legs, it will be difficult to sit comfortably as my friend's legs we're... More

Busy weekend. We were on the waitlist. Didn't get a call but there were free tables. There were also a few other walk ins so if keen to get in, visit the restaurant. The wine list, food, service, ambiance & decor is all exceptional. Highly recommended.

Staying at Mona Pavillions we had both dinner and breakfast here. We loved it, although not cheap. Quality, imaginative food. Extensive wine list. Helpful staff.
