Hobart Restaurants

Constitution Dock is the perfect place for yacht-watching, as well as gobbling fresh fish-and-chips from one of the punts (floating fish-and-chips shops) moored on the water. Ask for the daily specials, such as local blue grenadier or trevally, which cost A$7–A$16, or go for some freshly shucked oysters. The city's main restaurant areas include the docks and the streets around Salamanca Place.

    Elegant surroundings in an 1840 brick colonial home inspire classic Tasmanian cooking in Hobart's most formal dining room.

  • 8. Me Wah

    $$$ | Sandy Bay

    Featuring a superb range of wines from around the world, this sumptuously decorated Sandy Bay eatery rivals many of the better Chinese restaurants in Sydney and Melbourne. There is a broad menu, ranging from the pricey "candy heart" dried abalone to traditional favorites, such as Me Wah's delicious steamed dumplings; there's also a banquet option. The yum cha (traditional Cantonese tea service) available on weekends at lunchtime is worth the short journey from the city center.

  • 10. The Point Revolving Restaurant

    $$$$ | Sandy Bay

    This revolving restaurant atop one of Hobart's tallest buildings (it's also home to the city's casino) has breathtaking views, and the food is equally rewarding. The Rannoch Farm quail breast is a wonderful starter; for a main course, try the Cape Grim Scotch fillet served with Cygnet gourmet mushrooms, bone marrow, cocktail onions, and parsley. Meals here aren't cheap, so you might want to give the blackjack table a try before heading up here.
