The spacious dining room in this up-market, modern accommodation complex ticks all the boxes. It’s stylish, contemporary, light-filled and perfectly positioned to enchant diners with its poolside and river outlook. But not all of your attention will be focused on the views, because the contemporary food is more than a match for the scenery. Tasmanian ingredients are livened up with a touch of Mediterranean panache to create entrées such as dukkah-crusted-chicken salad with almonds, dill and sour cream dressing, and mains like mushroom and blue cheese risotto with red wine syrup. There are gourmet pizza for a more casual meal, and the wine and beer selection is extensive, enhanced by food-matching recommendations and tasting notes.
