Had dinner recently with a few girlfriends. The Quail was stand out for me – a near perfect dish – my friends had major food envy
The chicken I had for main was really well cooked and delicious
One of my friends has very strict dietary requirements and the staff were incredibly accommodating
I have been here a few times and it’s very consistently good food.

Sisogo – Hobart – November 2017

 Always delicious we dine here every time we stay in Hobart. The staff are always friendly & the food delicious.

Angela – October 2017

Excellent place to eat while staying at the grand chancellor.

We booked here to eat after a long day out. What a lovely surprise the food was amazing and the service very good. A great selection was to be had and great wine. Well done and thank you

gina b – St Helens – Australia – October 2017

Should go there more often!

We had dinner at the Tasman last night, prior to going to a symphony concert next door. We were offered the choice of a 2 course or 3 course pre-concert meal, and chose the 2-course option – in our case mains and dessert/cheese. The meal was excellent (grilled salmon, rib roast, followed by chocolate mousse and a cheese plate). The service was also fantastic, although a little slow closer to concert time. But we had given ourselves 2 hours, so there was no problem. Must go back soon and choose from the full menu.

helentas2017 – Hobart – Australia – October 2017

We ate here as we were staying the hotel and really enjoyed our experience. The food served was fantastic and reasonably priced. The service was superb.

Adywhit – Sydney- Australia – September 2017

Lovely restaurant with great ambience, terrific staff and absolutely lovely food. The best rib fillet cooked to perfection with great flavours and a magnificent collection of wines.

Ronx7 – Bribie Island – Australia – August 2017

This restaurant is in an excellent location overlooking some of Constitution Dock. The menu is good and the staff are very friendly.

PaulineW540 – Exmouth – Australia – August 2017

We dined here for convenience as we stayed in the Hotel. Very good service, friendly staff, good selection of local and Australian wines, the best tasting rib eye steak I’ve had in awhile and happy we came here.

mazzma77 – Sydney – Australia – August 2017

We really enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. The staff were fast and efficient, and helpful with wine advice. WE both ordered the eye fillet rare, with potato mash, onion rings and bacon jam. The fillet was outstanding – cooked to rare perfection. The potato mash was lovely and creamy, and the crispy little bits of onion great additions. Not sure about that bacon jam though – it had no discernible flavour. The wine list is interesting, with lots of Tasmanian offerings. Pity we could not fit in dessert.

agrippina1952 –  Hobart – August 2017

Food (seafood)was fresh and well presented. For a business trip travelling alone, the service was second to none.

Warren D – July 2017

We booked for dinner less than an hour before we hoped to dine and had no trouble.

Started with scallops which were well cooked and flavour balanced.
Mains, we chose lamb loin and pork fillet which were both cooked perfectly at medium rare. Of the two the lamb was our favourite as it had more elements adding flavour and texture to the dish.
The pork was also very good.

Kids ordered rigatoni which was perfect for them, they ate everything!

The girls shared the hazelnut brownie which was nice but possibly a little small for the price.

Recommended for a fine dining evening where quality ingredients and flavour is important.

aacol- Darwin, Australia – July 2017

Stayed at the hotel and had dinner one night. Food was very good and had a good wine selection.

Claudia H – Melbourne, Australia – June 2017

The Tasmanian eye fillet steak was perfectly cooked, accompanied by baby broccolini and a green salad. The Tassel salmon was served, skin on crunchy, with chips to match. The menu although not large provided for a wide range of tastes. The dining room overlooks the waterfront. The young wait staff were enthusiastic and helpful.

Berresford1937 – Amsterdam, The Netherlands – May 2017

Nothing better after travelling all day than to sit quietly in a restaurant eating delicious food & sipping delightful wine. After booking into the Hotel Grand Chancellor my wife & I were able to book for dinner into the hotel restaurant, Tasman. I am in an electric wheelchair & the restaurant is fully accessible. Staff were attentive & friendly. Food very good & chef willing to make adaptions to the meal to suit diets. We also had breakfast there as well. Continental or full breakfast offered. Great selection for both styles. Well worth the visit.

markmH218JS – Sydney, Australia – April 2017

Seated looking out to the wharf, twinkling lights, people out walking on a warm balmy night, we enjoyed a dinner from an a la carte menu. The food was delicious, the wine, followed by dessert were memorable. We also enjoyed viewing an exhibition of paintings on two levels. A lovely night!

reidthis91- Adelaide, Australia – March 2017

The Duck rillettes and scallop entrees were very nice (go the scallops), both beef dishes were very tasty, my partner had the fillet of beef and claimed the sauce was the best she has ever tasted (what have I been doing wrong all these years).

John E- Sydney Australia – February 2017

Do yourself a favour and treat yourself to a meal at Restaurant Tasman. The food and wine are brilliant and the service is wonderful. If you are at a loss New Year’s Eve book a table and sit back and enjoy the fireworks, you won’t be disappointed. We have enjoyed seeing in the last 4 New Years with great food and wine and the outstanding service of Restaurant Tasman. You need to book early as plenty of regulars attend this function.

DanaJG – Tasmania Australia – January 2017

We dined here one evening during our stay as we’d been out all day and didn’t feel like wandering out again and thought we would try the restaurant in the hotel.

We weren’t disappointed good service and food. Not a huge selection but they did a great job and the table are nicely spaced out so it doesn’t feel like your sitting on top of the next table.

Clancy – Sydney Australia – December 2016

We have tried this restaurant as we have stayed at Grand Chancellor hotel. It was an amazing experience as it was quite and we had our dinner there. We have ordered Salmon which was amazing. Mash potatoes were good as well. Finally, the dessert was sensational as we have ordered sticky dates and the muses.

Mousa M –  Saudi Arabia – November 2016

A very lovely meal in a relaxed atmosphere. The fish was tender juicy and on a bed of potato and feta very very yummy. Would recommend again!

Maretta N – September 2016

Staying at the same hotel we loved their breakfast. Awesome spread and very good foot too. Worth a try at least once during your stay.

DIBYAJYOTI1978 – Singapore – September 2016

Dinner at the Tasman was awesome. Really hadn’t fancied going there for dinner as we both felt like steak but we were struggling to find vacancies at short notice. Well…our last choice was one of the best we’ve ever made. The service was fast and friendly and the food was to die for.
Unable to decide we went with the chef’s menu. The $16 duck entree was amazing and the salad flavours were indescribable, not overpowering but an enhancing accompaniment to the finely sliced duck. The pickled walnuts were a nice addition.
The $35 hangar wagyu steak was so tender and the Huon mushroom and spinach combination together with a caramelised onion sauce and toasted almonds was a perfect finish.
The chef’s menu suggested a Pages Creek pinot noir rose and he was right. A second glass went down a treat.
On a side note we returned in the morning for the full buffet breakfast, not the cheapest at $25 but for what was on offer, good value and very tasty.

Dorrieneb – Margate Australia – August 2016

The quality here is very high, would highly recommend! We always have a very good meal here and the breakfasts are excellent !

Bubbba – Devonport Tasmania – July 2016

Good wait staff who advised well on the menu. Good wine selection recommended for meal. Special service for desserts much appreciated.

Paul B – Camden Australia – June 2016

The night that we visited this restaurant it was quite busy but even so the service was fast and friendly. My wife and I both ordered a rare eye fillet and it was cooked perfectly and was tender as it should be.
We had a bottle of wine between us but I must say that the prices for wine were expensive. There was a House wine for about $30 a bottle but if you didn’t like this then you were looking at over $40 or $50.
All in all we would recommend this as a fine dining restaurant.

Tricky 111 – Perth Australia – May 2016

Went in as a ‘walk in; and had a great meal and exceptional service. Assistance with local ciders was awesome and the friendly and helpful nature of our waitress made it an awesome experience.

Evan W – South Australia – April 2016

We arrived as a party of five for a celebratory night out for our friends birthday and from the moment we walked into the restaurant and left some three hours later we were treated to the most courteous, professional and a level service that would be hard to better.
From the delightful Maddie who was so attentive and helpful to the brilliant manager, Jade we have had a night to long remember. The wine list was comprehensive and well priced, the menu was varied and catered for all tastes.
The meals when they arrived were beautifully presented and flavoursome making the most of the Tasmanian produce.
Jade was extremely attentive, being sure to check that we were being well cared for throughout the evening and passing on information about the menu.
The position of the Restaurant Tasman is another draw card, situated as it is on the ground floor with floor to ceiling windows overlooking constitution dock.
It is often rare to find such a well managed and serviced restaurant in large hotels where you as a customer are treated with a real and genuine appreciation of your visit.
We cannot thank Jade, Maddy and all the staff who looked after us so beautifully.
We cannot imagine anyone being less than delighted with their evening out at this excellent restaurant.

Peter L – March 2016

We had dinner here whilst staying at the hotel. We enjoyed our entre of house cured ocean trout and the main course of seared Tassal salmon was cooked to perfection but my piece had a few bones which is unforgivable for a restaurant that prides itself in delivering top-notch food! The vanilla crème brulee was very good.

Service was attentive and the courses were well-paced.

Joan – Sydney – March 2016

Beautiful tasty food served up with excellent service make this a must go to restaurant for anyone staying in Hobart. Not just for Hotel residents this restaurant offers fine dining at a very reasonable cost. I recommend you book a table especially at weekends’ as it does get very busy – for good reason!

– Travelator_9 – Queensland – February 2016

I’m always a little apprehensive about hotel restaurants…usually they’re just average. This place was anything but average. The menu was somewhat small, but that is A-OK but they excelled at everything they had. I had a chicken dish, and my mom had the salmon- both were wonderful! The beer selection was pretty decent as well. I’d come back here again…even if I wasn’t staying at the hotel

– Lisa T – United States – January 2016

Restaurant Tasman was excellent in both food, wine and service.

– Mr Waynej – Canberra – August 2015

Evening dinner fabulous, and very accommodating in catering for food allergies. We had a celebration dinner in Restaurant Tasman for my Daughter’s graduation from UTAS – the meal was lovely and staff were very attentive.

– Beverley – Hobart – August 2015

Its great to see their restaurant supporting and presenting the best Tasmanian wines and produce. It’s never disappointing.

– Adrian – Hobart – July 2015

The Restaurant Tasman was excellent. We would recommend the buffet breakfast, which includes a-la-carte eggs, and also the dinner menu. Our steaks were cooked to perfection.

– Joanne – Hobart – July 2015

If you have a penchant for healthy degustation menus in a waterfront dining setting with relaxed vibes, Restaurant Tasman will definitely reel you in with its unbridled culinary talents. My family was there in December and was amazed by the exceptionally good modern infusion of sous vide and seared cooking techniques. We decided to enter as TripAdvisor reviews promoted it as a palate of esculent foods. True enough, we found each ingredient was prepared with reverential care that paid homage to authentic Tasmanian culture!

My favourite is the house signature Focaccia, where a fragrant light fluffy crust gives way to hints of sharp spicy notes in the sauce dip. Must try for the discerning diner would be the Taste Plate of the Sea, where your taste buds are enveloped in a delicate balance of a myriad of tastes: thick succulent salmon slice and fresh oysters baked in seaweed butter & sour dough crumbs, well balanced with astringent flavour of raw lemon, then finished with a delightful twist: the organic union of purple lettuce and scallops that is also not too intrusive on the palate. Plus…. It’s the perfect sharing platter option as it’s all served fresh on shaved ice that does not melt easily! We tucked into the main courses of Sous vide pork cutlet & seared crispy skin Huon salmon in deep appreciation of the fine culinary skills.

Thanks Tasman for serving up bespoke Tasmanian hospitality, paired with a scintillating array of fine food that made an unforgettable Hobart first experience!


– Lee Kang En from Singapore – January 2015

We went there for a family dinner after two nights at the Taste of Tasmania. We needed a quiet break with good food. And we found both! The service is attentive and well paced. The dinners were very good and there is a lovely view of the waterfront. This is the second time we have chosen this restaurant and were very glad we did.

– Traveler40827 – Portland, Maine – January 2014

We attended one of Restaurant Tasman’s regular degustation dining events – this one was a five course meal matched to Marion Bay wines. The setting is a real bonus with the dining area facing the harbour through a full-width glass wall – great atmosphere. About 40-50 customers attended the event which had to be booked in advance. Staff were fast, professional and interacted well with the diners at our table. The fixed menu was beautifully presented with general agreement at our table that three of the courses were absolutely fantastic! The winemaker attended the evening and gave a short and eloquent presentation on each wine. Good fun, good food – we have already planned to attend the next event!

– Brett JR – Hobart – January 2014

Went to the restaurant after a family loss, so the mood was somber, but on arrival we were shown to our lovely table with the view of the docks, Joan our waitress was attentive and we ordered three starters which came promptly, the salt and pepper squid was a high light. Our mains came after a short break and again we were impressed with all three. Normally that would have been enough but we even ordered sweets as we had enjoyed both previous courses, and again we loved them. We could have easily found a reason to be disappointed on the evening because of the reason we came out, but on reflection the restaurant Tasman was wonderful.

– Tigger71 – London – November 2013

The food was great and would definitely recommend this restaurant. I was dining with a party of 10 and there were no complaints at all.

– SPTravelling – Wollongong – January 2014

We had a very nice dinner here on our visit to Hobart. It was nice & quiet and the food very good. The staff were friendly and attentive.
