The Pier Hotel Bistro
This old hotel has had a fabulous makeover, and its modern restaurant is furnished in New York minimalist style to create a chic and casual eatery. Take a sofa seat amid modern art and warm, earthy coloured walls or grab an alfresco table on the deck and browse their extensive menu of bistro-style meals. There is something for everyone, with over a dozen numbered pizza – number seven is a standout topped with asparagus, smoked salmon, caramelised onion, cherry tomatoes and crème fraîche. The beetroot-infused Atlantic salmon served on a bed of spinach is a satisfyingly tasty light dinner. Select from the Tasmanian-focused wine list and relax while the kids tuck into their mini hot dogs and chips.
