Having read the tripadvisor reviews of the many restaurants way before I came over to Launceston, I settled on this one and made a booking for dinner for 6, and 2 children.
To be fair, coming to such a place with two children I should have known better, but then again thats why I didn't choose Stillwater too.
They make a great fuss about their sharing plates, and I ordered one 600gm portion with great anticipation only for it to fall flat. We were asked to 'upgrade' to 800gms, which we did, medium cooked it certainly isn't. Result being each of us only got a small piece of meat around 50-60 odd gms, which was dry and slightly chewy.
Tiger prawns were more like shrimps, which I'm not entirely sure about though the seasoning was spot on.
All in all, I left feeling a bit short changed and felt that maybe we should have stuck to ordering individual portions instead. Maybe then this review would turn out differently. As it is, I have tasted much better steaks elsewhere in Australia for this price and left sufficiently disappointed for this time around.
