A Seafood chowder that has set the bar high for the following eye fillet and it did not disappoint. Cooked to perfection. Thanks to a top quality Tassie beef and served with superb professional and fun staff

I recently attended a dinner function at Bruni's restaurant. I have dined here before and I was not disappointed at this event. The venue remains refined with a touch of glamour and the staff were welcoming and friendly. It is the food that continues to star at Bruni's. Our entire meal was delicious from petite caramelised onion tartlets to quail... More

Villa Howden presented a wonderful and creative menu for a private function. The room was extremely well presented and beautifully prepared. Accolades to the chef and the wait staff. Food was wonderful and all people were served consistent meals in a very short time frame from a slick kitchen.

See my review of Villa Howden (I spoke about the meals at this restaurant) but the service was 5 star and the food 5+ stars! So much flavour, and unlike being at many other restaurants, there is usually an appetiser or something you don't like - not here! Everything I tried was unbelievable! Be sure to leave room for dessert!

We stayed at Villa Howden for six nights and ate at Brunis restaurant four meals! Every meal was faultless and delicious! Staff were friendly, atmosphere was decadent and each experience was delightful!

We totally enjoyed our dinner at Bruni's (inside Villa Howden). Staff were excellent and friendly and helpful! The risotto and the chicken breast were well prepared and delicious. Wine selections were also local and excellent.

We revisited Bruni's Restaurant this week having good memories of the food, atmosphere and management of our many previous visits. Either the management has changed hands or the owners have become blasé. The wine list is fairly limited and young so we always took our own wine and paid corkage. On this occasion we were told that it was against... More

We booked this restaurant for NYE as we wanted something that wasn't directly in Hobart, and were pleased we did. The restaurant is rather 'fine dining ' in atmosphere and the food I would describe as 'old school', ie there are no tricks or tizzy presentation but the food is very, very good. As an example of what I mean,... More

Sadly this restaurant doesn't live up to it's high expectations. The service was mediocre and non-plussed. Waitress was inexperienced, it was her first night on the job but it was clear she had no prior training in hospitality at all. She was like a deer in headlights. Basil Fawlty would be proud. Menu items only 1/2 hour into service were... More
