Hobart Restaurants featuring the best Tasmanian Seafood

Tasmania is such a wonderful place. Visitors travel from around the globe to taste Tasmania’s famous seafood, in particular Tasmanian Oysters.

The vibrant Hobart waterfront is a popular place, with many great eating establishments that have views over water or the historic Salamanca precinct.

Of course Tasmanian oysters are the star attraction of the local seafood scene and we are so proud that our oysters feature at two of Hobart's best restaurants.


Blue Eye Seafood in Salamanca is popular with locals and visitors alike, popular dishes include their creamy seafood chowder, a crispy tempura and of course fresh Tasmanian Oysters washed down with some local craft beer and exquisite wines.  Oh and once you have enjoyed some of Tasmania’s best seafood you can end your evening with their amazing Chocolate mousse. Yum!

Another local secret is their Oyster Orgy - where, between 3 and 5 pm natural oysters are just $2 each, sit back at the bar and take in the activity at Salamanca and Derwent River.

The Glass House is in arguably the best location in town, floating at the end of the Elizabeth Street Pier.  The bar list is very impressive with local beer, wine, whiskey and gin combined with stunning views as you watch the Mona ferry come and go.

One of the most popular dishes is a tasty selection of our oysters. These Tasmanian Oysters are served on beautifully made local pottery plates with toppings such as; pickled rhubarb, parsley and dill, smoked cumquat ponzu and golden sesame.  Delicious.

It is great to see Head Chef David Ball fostering such great relationships with producers - he has created a menu where 85% of the produce is sourced from local growers delivered fresh daily.
