Peppermint Bay Dining Room
If there is one food experience every visitor to Tasmania should have, it’s lunch at Peppermint Bay. Hop on board the cruise from Hobart (phone 1300 137 919), or drive directly to this food lover’s heaven. The modern, light-filled complex faces Bruny Island and is surrounded by grounds dotted with outdoor artwork. The restaurant achieves excellence on every level, from the beautiful setting and attentive staff to the perfectly cooked food. Dishes inspired by Tasmania’s regional produce might be confit sea trout with flying fish roe from Macquarie Harbour, or a boldly flavoured trio of vegetarian pastries from Woodbridge. Desserts also feature local produce like Tasmanian saffron in the luscious crème caramel with pomegranate molasses. Also on-site is a provedore with local spoils, and the adjoining Terrace Bar is a cafe with lighter lunch options.
