Stillwater Restaurant, Launceston
Stillwater is casual fine dining in one of Tasmania's most awarded restaurants.
The location, which is housed within a renovated 1830s flour mill on the brink of the Tamar River in Launceston, is comfortable, with warm lighting and timber furnishings, and enjoys excellent views. The seasonal cuisine is a love letter to the island state, using fresh, local ingredients as well as the best wines, distilleries, and breweries in the area.
For a very luxurious experience, pair the Arras sparkling with flavour-packed seafood meals like fresh Moulting Bay oysters or Tasmanian blacklip abalone with whipped tofu, brown butter ponzu, enoki, and avruga caviar. A visit on a clear winter day is particularly rewarding, as you will not only be treated to a spectacular view of the water, but also to the delights of a Tasmanian winter. Expect a cuisine that highlights the abundance and richness of winter produce such as cauliflower, beets, and brussels sprouts, as well as indulgences like oysters and black truffle.
