My partner and I visit Barilla Bay Restaurant once or twice a year as we are big seafood fans. My partner especially likes the chowder and we both really like oysters. Usually we go for dinner (on a Sat or Sun as, strangely, they are the only days the restaurant is open for dinner), however, this visit was for lunch.... More

A pit-stop on our way to Port Arthur. The Oysters were the best we have ever had. The Salmon with mash and nicoise salad and Fish Three-Way were just as fresh and yummy. The dining room overlooks the water where the oysters are farmed. Friendly service.

Join the oyster farm tour, they didnt took us to the farm shed which sort and grade the oyster. The oyster include in the tour is very fresh, a lot better than sydney and coles bay where I went. surprisingly oyster is not expensive by comparison. Worth going.

If you are driving around Tasmania and you want to try some good oysters directly from a farm, make sure you have a stop at Barilla bay and experience something very typical. Here you can buy your tray of 12 oysters to take away for only 12 aud or eventually sit down and enjoy them for a bit more. One... More

Came back to this restaurant after having last been here a couple of years ago. The food continues to be as exceptional as it was on the last occasion. Service is good. It is spacious. You will need to get a cab there. It is located on an oyster farm.

Had a fantastic meal - fresh, tasty, well presented. Service was fast, efficient and friendly. Ate parmesan and horseradish oysters for entree and grilled flounder for main. Partner had seafood chowder and crumbed morwong with salad. So much choice in the way of seafood dishes - hard to choose. Dessert was panna cotta with ultra fresh strawberries and berry coulis...

We called in today for a coffee and were told they don't do coffee any more. Big mistake BB. I'm sure many people would enjoy a coffee while buying their oysters. Or would buy oysters after a coffee. The toilets were poor also - not properly cleaned or in good order.

We bought and ate the oysters at the retail shop. Thus, I was not sure the quality of oysters if we dined in the restaurant. The 1st time we ate was good but the 2nd time we went again when it was just opened early in the morning, the oysters seemed to be kept from the day before and were... More

We attended a function at Barilla Bay recently and was very impressed with their food offerings. We dont eat oysters but we had a lovely lamb dish that was melt in the mouth, nicely cooked fish and smoked salmon, all delicious. The grounds are lovely to stroll and the staff cheerful and helpful.
