Probably the most gentle people we met in Tasmania. Very nice place, inside the forest, near Cradle Mountain. We ate 2 Scottish Burger and 1 Texan ribs, great taste, big plate, nice esthetically. Everything was very clean, the service is quick and the prices are good. I suggest you go.

Who knew the best seafood basket I've had would be in inland Tasmania. Delicious fresh Salmon, battered Flathead, Prawns in panko crumbs, lemon pepper calimari, scallops wrapped in bacon. Reasonably priced, cooked beautifully.

Stop here to eat rather than in Cradle Mountain. Food delicious! Solid menu with some imaginative options as well - burgers etc along with moussaka and Hungarian cabbage rolls on the specials border. Good range of gluten free options and even rustled up a delicious soy chai latte. Interesting range of local beers on offer too. Super friendly staff. Great...

We booked 2 rooms. The cabins were very spacious, very clean. Bathrooms very clean. The cabins were surrounded by bush and it was very relaxing. Beautiful views. Had dinner in their cafe. The food was delicious and servings were large. Our stay was very comfortable and we will certainly go back again.

After conquering the Dove Lake walk at Cradle Mountain we were nursing substantial appetites. Like an oasis out of the desert this lovely restaurant appeared. Right on the intersection of C132 and C136 it's hard to miss the distinct red building among the greenery. We were well catered for by the friendly staff and enjoyed a lovely meal.

The accommodation was cosy and had basically everything you would need on hand. The main house, lounge, bar and resturant was cosy homely and welcoming and the staff (Daniella, Phoebe....., cannot say enough...

Cradle Forest Inn is not hard to find. Situated in Moina, (not so much a town more a destination) you will find this charming Inn painted in bright red...not to be missed among the trees. For us this was a stopover, a respite from driving. Our accommodation was in one of the log cabins (designated Deluxe Suite) and was more...
