Dined on a Saturday night. Fine dining but not stuffy. We had a glass of Tasmanian bubbles to start then exquisite starters followed by even better mains (lamb and beef). Throughout the service was friendly and slightly eccentric but very good. The dinng room was small and discrete being one of the rooms of a lovely old house. Desserts were lovely and a cab was offered and ordered as soon as the credit card was signed. This was one of those meals out that you remember forever. Ps - not the restaurants fault but boo to the girl that came into the dining room and made 3 loud phone calls in a row - manners anyone?

This restaurant is a special occasion experience. We went for our anniversary and it exceeded expectations. There is a minimum spend of about $50,00 per person. This means you must have more than one course. We chose to veal for our main course and raspberry ice cream for dessert. We chose a half bottle of Basket Press Shiraz for $55.00. Perfection. The food was as special as our occasion, the service impeccable and the tables far enough apart that I could not hear what other patrons discussed. When celebrating something special this is definitely worth shelling out for the experience.

Excellent dinning here. Quiet but with interesting music to listen to. Such a welcome change to the fast pace, loud, "can't hear yourself talk" bass only frenetic activity of many trendy places. Not only that but the food is delicious, interesting and beautifully cooked. Service, friendly,attentive and knowledgable. Wine by the glass list although limited, was well chosen. Would definitely return.

Booked this restaurant on the basis of a Gourmet Traveller Restaurant guide review and it exceeded expectations. Took a taxi from our hotel in the CBD to the restaurant located in a lovely old house. We enjoyed the intimate dining experience with tables situated in individual rooms furnished in the style of the era. Service is seamless and non-intrusive. The menu was interesting and the food was of a very high standard, beautifully cooked and presented on the plate. I had perfectly cooked scallops for entree, beautifully cooked juicy blue eye fillet with smoked paprika mash for my main and couldn't resist the dessert of warm sago with palm sugar butterscotch figs which did not disappoint. My husband's venison cooked very rare (seared) as suggested by the restaurant was excellent. The wine list is extensive and well-balanced between Australian and international offerings but very much on the pricey side. Would recommend a greater selection of wines by the glass as my husband and I usually order different wines depending on our choices of dish. Another consideration is that a bottle shared between two people could put the driver over the limit! At $300 this was an expensive but delightful dining experience.

Apres some stunning hikes,we were in need of therapy. So we broke our budget to achieve this milestone.We were greeted in true Italian spirit at this 1836,apricot-brick cottage in sleepy New Town,away from Hobart's celebrated streets.
This restaurant has been the recipient of 'Gourmet Traveller' stars and has a status equivalent to Bilsons in Sydney or Melbourne's Jacques Reymonds. The ambiance is intimate and sophisticated with three little rooms elegantly furnished. The owner/chef created a vibrant selection gems from Tasmania's rich larder.
We had a daube of lamb,slowly cooked,eaten a 'la cuiller (with spoon). To die for. Absolute magic. My femme,had pigeon with edemame beans and fennel. She was speechless,which gave credence to the high regard the dish was held at. We shared a marvellous eggplant 'inam bayeldi' which had us raising appreciative eyebrows.
the wines were extensive and expensive,so we had it by the glass at the recommendation of our host. The sum total of our Lebrina experience....excellence... with the need to eat leaner for the next two days.
