Henry’s Harbourside Restaurant, Hobart

Located at The Henry Jones Art Hotel in Hobart this is not a cheap restaurant but we did get to enjoy some lovely meals and also had some lovely cocktails from the bar prior to eating.

We started with some taste teasers and I had a tasty Beef Carpaccio that was accompanied with a sliver of blue cheese and something else I can’t recall (but it was good).  Jane had a small cup of field mushroom tea with truffle cream that she also enjoyed.

For mains, I had the duck and this was cooked rare and had a very light asian flavour to it, and was accompanied by Bok Choy, Poached Pear and a very slim and long spring roll that was filled with leg meat from the duck and very nice.  A nice dish.

Jane had some nice lamb medallions that were nicely balanced with an olive oil puree and wilted spinach and low baked onion.  Also a nice dish.

We finished with a nice cheese platter with predominantly Tasmanian cheeses.

The service was very professional, however at times we found it to be a little inattentive.
