We ate breakfast here two years ago, and were happy to see that the quality hasn't changed at all. If you are arriving from Devonport off the Spirit of Tasmania, the 0630 arrival means not much is open and you could be in for a long wait for a decent breakfast, unless of course you head for St. Kilda ;)...

Very good service, despite the fact that we hadn't made a reservation. Had half an hour before a show and they checked with the kitchen , we ordered, had a delicious meal and were out within our time frame. Excellent service at short notice.

We went before a show. Fortunately we were early enough so our service was good. Reservations are necessary, many people got turned away. At times it was noisy as we were very close to a busy road. I thought the menu was rather limited.

Very easy to get to as the tram stops directly in front of the restaurant, Luna Park Stop. Restaurant staff members were very attentive and the food was great.

I haven't had breakfast here for a while and the standard has not dropped at all. A fresh apple and watermelon juice and latte to start followed by the fritters with poached eggs with just the right amount of rocket and tomato. Love the relaxed vibe and great service.

After having enjoyed previous dining experiences at Phamish last Sunday night was very poor. We specifically booked in for a 6pm dinner as we were attending a show at the Palais over the road at 7:30pm. Service was slow to the point I had to ask for the dessert menu and then when ordered it was another 20 minutes arriving... More
