Don't know why this place advertises takeaways. Arrogant man who served us had to hunt around for a tea bag to make a very ordinary cup of tea. Coffee was ok, but both were very expensive. Wish we had gone elsewhere.

A surprisingly good little place to eat with a fantastic view. The staff were very attentive and we even got a piano solo from the manager. Food was excellent for a brasserie style restaurant. A great option for lunch

Good food and service with the best views of Hobart and the River Derwent. The use of local produce enhances the experience.

We had a most delicious breakfast looking out at a spectacular view of the water and hills around Hobart. Had the world's best chocolate banana muffin and spiced apple cake. Off the beaten path. Would love to return someday!
