Maybe our expectations were too high base on the reviews we had read before visiting but it didn't live up to those expectations. The ambiance was nothing extraordinary; furniture was old and had visible marks of use (table glass had a lot of marks on...More

After a quick visit to MONA, we headed over to dinner and it did not disappoint. Both the food and the waiter 'S attention to detail was not lost in us. The decor was also great!

We enjoyed a relaxing lunch with delicious food, beautiful outlook and friendly service. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the return ferry trip was an ideal extension of the experience.

Unfortunately this experience was a highlight for all the wrong reasons. We chose this restaurant based on the beautiful views, white tablecloth fine dining (photos on the website) and the good reviews for the food. We arrived during the MoFo festival and were unaware that...More

We toured the museum in the morning and decided to stay on for lunch. The restaurant was busy, but they were more than accomodating for 'walk ins'. The wine list is enormous, one of the best collections of Burgundies you will find. The wait staff...More

Not sure if they allow you back into Mona after you have left. While the Source Restaurant is right next to MONA it is not actually in MONA...you need to exit MONA to go to Source. We went to the Source before MONA so did... More

I agree with David R, taxis are not expensive and there are often a few just outside the restaurant waiting to take guests back into Hobart. I wouldn't risk rushing your meal just to get the ferry. The ferry is $20 each... More

The Source Restaurant takes its name from the John Olsen painting that hangs in the ceiling of the foyer. Its focus is on local seasonal produce, presented according to the whim of Vince Trim (ha), our Executive Chef, and his team. Shared plates, fresh, uncomplicated food, and a lovely outlook over the museum grounds. À la carte breakfast and lunch, Wednesday - Monday. À la carte dinner, Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm.
