Went to rain check for a late breakfast catch up. Typical of Nth Hobart scene the place has a great layback feel to it. The wait staff were efficient yet friendly. The menu had enough points of difference to make it sound fresh and inviting. I opted for the croque madam. This was made with meat stripped from ham hocks,... More

We had three meals between us, all awful. I got the baked eggs, overcooked to an inch of their life (I asked for soft) the beans they were served on were completely dry and overcooked, the toast so overcooked it nearly broke a tooth. The lamb neck came with burned pita bread and the chicken burger with store bought frozen... More

Our first visit but it won't be our last and we'll make sure this becomes a regular when in Hobart. Our server (Smitty) was excellent in recommending wines with various dishes, and was incredibly friendly but professional as well. The special of lamb shank was magnificent, and the Saganki a new experience I'll be glad to repeat. A superb meal... More

4 of us popped into Raincheck Lounge, after dining at a local chinese restaurant, for our desserts & cheese & coffees fix. We had nort booked as it was a spur of the moment decision & as the place was packed we didn't expect to just walk in & get a table. However, our obliging and welcoming waiter, Emma, soon... More

Called in here with friends after a movie, later than expected but we were welcomed and served promptly. Our table ordered a number of dishes to share and it was nice that our wait person told us when she thought it would be enough. The croquettes with walnuts were very tasty, as were the lamb skewers. The special of pork... More

Had tapas dinner here last night with hubby & children. Loved it. Good range of food, tasty and well priced. Staff were incredibly helpful with both food choices & wine. A chilled vibe, couples, families with older children and small groups. Would definitely recommend it.

Liked the range of tapas dishes on offer and the wine selection. A reliably good and changing menu makes this place a favorite. Relaxed and casual dining with solid service and good food.
