Cable Station Restaurant

Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

We had come across cable station's food at a number of festivals around Tassie and loved their wood fired seafood creations. Their accommodation looked fantastic so we took a family trip from Hobart (see accommodation review).

The restaurant is intimate with some historical knick knacks and a comfy couch which we took advantage of for a break between entre and main.

This is a gourmet restaurant show casing local produce in a degustation style, still gives a choice of main courses. Our kids (8 & 11) are reasonably adventurous food wise and loved octopus with pesto and balsamic reduction in the entre and the mains of braised beef and salmon steak. They weren't so keen on the carpaccio venison or the oysters entre but Mum and Dad were. Don't expect nuggets and chips here.

The crayfish special is spectacular and worth every cent.

Don and Charlotte do a fantastic job and are beaut people to boot.

Highly recommended.

Great seafood, friendly and entertaining service. Innovative menu with local ingredients. They choose the first courses and you choose your main.

I read the reviews and tried to book for dinner or lunch on a Monday. The lady informed me in no uncertain terms that they are only open Sat and Sun. Nowhere in their advertising or literature did I find that they only opened weekends

Having run a restaurant myself, I know that you cannot be open 365 days a year. But if you do operate unusual opening hours like this place, then for heavens sake make it clear so that the punter does not waste their time trying to book when the restaurant is closed.

The isolated windswept surroundings of this beautiful heritage homestead is an invitation to sample the excellent Italian-inspired rustic food. From the wood-fired oven emerge our Tasmanian salmon cooked to perfection with horseradish cream and the slow braised rabbit with potatoes and veggies in a sauce so good,i asked for bread to soak it up with..
The fireside sitting is intimate and the view of the nut and the coast is magic

This was the best food experience we had in Tassie! It was like the hosts Don and Charlotte had invited us into their own home and both the food and hospitality was genuine and heartfelt. The menu is based on seasonal, local produce and as our five courses were served Don told us stories about the producers and areas all the ingredients came from. Not only were the flavours delicious but the Tasmanian wines recommended were fantastic! We loved it so much we went back the next day for lunch and had the wood fire roasted crayfish that was freshly caught that morning and the best tasting seafood I have ever had. It's not often you get hosts that are just so happy to have you there and so generous - the value for money is brilliant. This is a must visit!!!
