If you’re looking for a true taste of Tasmanian hospitality, you won’t want to miss a visit to the Stillwater Cafe in Launceston.
Set in a historic heritage building – a flour mill dating back to the 1830s – you’ll find this award-winning restaurant is definitely worth a visit.
In the past six months, Stillwater has been honoured with the award for Tasmania’s best restaurant (May 2011) as well as the Australian Hotels Association’s best stand-alone restaurant (August 2011).
Speaking to The Mercury, Kim Seagram – the restaurant’s marketing manager and one of its five part-owners – remarked that the key to Stillwater’s success is fresh Tasmanian produce, as well as its inviting and welcoming atmosphere.
She said: “You’d also be pressed to find friendlier, more welcoming people than in Tasmania.”
Menus are decided according to the season – oysters are a key feature of the current winter menu, for example – and you’ll find a delicious selection of gourmet offerings for breakfast, lunch and evening meals.
A wine bar and a tempting selection of Tasmanian cheeses are also available.
If you are planning a visit to the Stillwater Cafe, it is well worth booking your table in advance, as this popular venue can fill up quickly.
