On a recent visit to Hobart a friend & I ate twice at the Charcoal Grill. The restaurant is located in the RACV Apartments in Collins St & very close to the CBD. You need to enter the building at reception then go upstairs. The ambience is very pleasant & subdued. It's also very quiet. A small menu, prices at... More

While staying at the Hobart RACV club hotel, we chose to dine at the Charcoal restaurant on the first evening as we knew we would be tired from traveling. What a great idea that turned out to be. Very friendly staff, plenty of space between tables and a pleasant atmosphere to relax and enjoy dinner ... breakfasts too :) Table... More

The dining room had the appearance of normal restaurant associated with a hotel but the service and food were better than most venues set up within a hotel complex.

We had dinner there for 3 nights. All the steaks I had were superb. Cooked to perfection. I like mine medium rare. The wine list had some great matching choices for a reasonable value. They also carried the award winning Sullivans cove tasmanian whisky, blue label. Now it is off my bucket list. Beautiful

It's a shame Charcoal wasn't busy when we were there (Sunday night dinner in January when I would've thought it'd be peak holiday season), but we enjoyed almost (from memory besides ourselves, there were only 2 other tables) having the whole restaurant to ourselves! We were guests at the hotel as well, so spontaneously one night, decided to give it... More

We booked Charcoal for dinner on Christmas Day as we were staying in the hotel and didn't feel we had any other options. I have to say it exceeded my expectations and didn't have the add-on feel some hotel restaurants do. Service was pleasant and efficient. The food was beautiful, modern in style and presentation. I thought the price was... More

Found this restaurant by total luck and was so pleasantly greeted by the staff and acknowledged by the chefs , we realised the place had great atmosphere. The staff were knowledgable and explained the specials of the day. Considering it was New Years Eve we thought it may have been busier, but during the meal, the people kept coming, so... More
