My friends and I continue to visit Elmslie as its a great place far enough away from Launceston to enjoy the scenery and have a casual catch up or more formal get together. The venue is so welcoming and relaxing and the food is ever so delicious and moorish!! Elmslie is definitely worth a visit.

The cafe is spotlessly clean and the service excellent. However, the meals were quite disappointing. Squid was 'floury' and 'gritty'; the chicken salad small and dull; the flathead and chips perhaps not cooked in fresh oil and the pulled pork very ordinary. So disappointing as we took an interstate guest and had high expectations from previous reviews and a friend's... More

Lunched here three times in the last few weeks, absolutely delicious food cooked to perfection, beautifully served, with lovely views and a great atmosphere. The new proprieters have breathed life into the place- five stars without hesitation!

We lunched with friends at Elmslie Café. It has a good choice of menu items including a plethora of delicious desserts. The food was fresh and delicious and the atmosphere is cosy with fantastic views. We were pleasantly surprised with the cost of the meals and would definitely go again.

Lunched here recently with friends - menu a bit stock standard, dishes well presented and tasty, surprised that wines from this vineyard on offer - overall a bit lack lustre

I took my husband here for his birthday lunch. We had a table for two in a quiet little room with only a few other tables, with an outlook over the river. The menu was adequate with something for everyone (vegetarian/vegan). We enjoyed wine and entrees and then mains. The service was great, the food was fresh and tasty. The... More

Nice bright cafe perched high above the Tamar river with excellent water views. Tables outside for warmer weather. We had lunch, which was quite acceptable and reasonably priced given the location. Popular for weddings. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

I ate with a group of friends for Saturday lunch. It was a pleasant surprise to find out that Matsons Catering had taken over the cafe. The menu is not large but does cater to all tastes & food allergies & includes afternoon tea offerings. It was a cold day so we chose not to sit outside which would be... More

I belong to a group who met to catch up for chat and coffee. The cake was very nice. Service was friendly and as we were the only people it was slightly slow, but the friendliness settled that matter.

A friend and I had previously had morning tea at Elmsie and the experience had verged on divine. I had no hesitation on recommending it for our Mothers Day celebration. Unfortunately the day was misty and overcast so we were ushered to a table inside. We were there for morning coffee and had difficulty narrowing our selection to one choice... More
