For a unique taste of southern Tasmania, The Red Velvet Lounge in Cygnet is a must-see on any culinary tour of the island state.
The daytime menu changes with the seasons and offers a specials blackboard that adapts to the fresh local produce that is available that morning.
In the evenings the tantalising list of meals reflects the wonderful bounty of produce sourced from the Huon and Channel areas.
The resident chef has been delighting guests for eight years and was nationally recognised in 2007 by being awarded the inaugural Vogue entertaining award for outstanding use of regional produce by a chef.
With meat, fruit and vegetables all gathered from respected Tasmanian artisan producers, dining here really is the best way to get a taste of the best the region has to offer. It is also famous for dishing up the best burger on the island.
The Red Velvet Lounge is fully licensed and open from 09:00 to 17:00 seven days per week, while on weekends you can also make a reservation for dinner from 18:00.
Along with main meals, the selection of house made jams, preserves and sourdoughs makes a visit to the old-fashioned restaurant a chance to enjoy some of the best food in Tasmania.
