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

Our waiters, Takani and Fra were so very hospitable and knowledgable, our surroundings full of interesting tables with contemporary art inside each table, and the food divine. We thought we were full and wouldn't be able to eat dessert, however we managed to demolish three...More

After 3 hours wandering around MONA, it was great to move across to The Source, wonderful service from knowledgeable wait staff, and advice from the Sommelier for matching wines. With a great view from our table it was a great dining experience

The Mona museum itself is outstanding but the current exhibition fell well short of my expectations. However the restaurant is almost worth the trip to Tasmania by itself. Outstanding menu , service is excellent with a detailed knowledge of both the food and wine available,...More

After a heavy morning at MONA, we debriefed over a wonderful long lunch of fresh local produce that the chef magically turned into some of the best dishes I have tasted. We took the waiters advice, shared 4 entrees and a desert. We also chose...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.
