Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely setting in an Edwardian house with friendly attentive staff. Wine was lovely.I had braised leek and ricotta tortellini- undercooked and fairly tasteless. Crispy leaks tasted of nothing. Husband had hot smoked salmon pate which was nice but not smoked.For mains we had the Kingfish...with spiced eggplant- fish was ok but again a bit tasteless, too much eggplant which overpowered the fish. Husband had pressed shoulder of lamb- very tough and had difficulty cutting it. We didn't wait for dessert or coffee. Would we go again- sadly no.More

How disappointing. I ordered smoked salmon pate which was flaked salmon fillet with very little flavour and not smoked. I then had pressed lamb which was difficult to cut as well as chew. This was not the fine dining experience I was expecting. Poor ingredients,...lacking flavour and overpriced.More

Beautiful setting with art Deco chandeliers primed our excitement. Friendly, knowledgeable staff introduced fresh smoked salmon pate along with truffle ricotta tortellini on cauliflower mousse set the scene. Fish not wallowing in batter (apart from salmon & trout) is such a rare dish in Tasmania...but tonight Kingfish fillets with curry leaves & eggplant changed our opinion- delightful!More

The food was definitely five star. From the complimentary starter to the the delicious dessert. The service was impeccable. The maître’d directed her staff with precision even preempting the patrons next choice. Amazing!!

I can’t believe this was our first visit to Novaros after living in launceston for a few years! It was absolutely delicious and will definitely be on the regular rotation from now on! The flat iron steak was perfectly cooked and the tiramisu was so...good! Great wine list too. Lovely staff and atmosphere.More

We were visiting Launceston and booked Novaro where we had a delightful meal. The hostess was charming with a most welcoming smile. Wonderful ambience Would highly recommend if in Launceston.

A small, lovely restaurant where all the staff helps out to provide excellent service. Food was super. Wish it was open on a Sunday night so that we could come back.

Outstanding service; our waiter was very well spoken and experienced in her position, The food was amazing and of very high standard, couldn't be happier, well worth the money. Our group had travelled down from New South Wales or a holiday and stayed the night...in Launceston at the Grand Chancellor, this restaurant was in close proximity located only a very short walk, literally behind the hotel. I myself come from a fine dining background and found this place to be faultless, defiantly worth the experience. Thanks again guys.More

Fine dining at its best. Food was superb. Flavours just worked. I had the beetroot risotto and was just magnificent. The service was 10/10 and also a beautiful ambiance.
