Beyond the forested hills of St Marys, the coast road leads to wide blue seascapes where this modern resort restaurant sits overlooking pristine ocean beaches. Uninterrupted views, fresh Tasmanian produce and the resort’s own home-brewed beers add up to a memorable fine-dining experience in this isolated spot. French-accented seafood features on a menu that changes seasonally, so you can expect Freycinet oysters dressed with raspberry and star anise, or flathead encased in crispy lager batter with lime aioli. Meat dishes include a tasty game pie of rabbit and wallaby in dark, rich stout, or grilled wagyu beef with Madeira jus and pesto asparagus tart. It’s not all for the grown-ups either, as children’s menus will keep the littlies happy.
