655 Main Road, Berriedale,Tas; mona.net.au Verdict: Restrained Spanish-inspired cuisine housed in a world-class gallery space, an absolute must-visit when in Hobart. Ideal for dinner dates and indulgent lunches. Ditch the car, take the Mona ferry and try the gallery’s own beers and wines. Score:
We rated: The architecture (it has to be seen to be believed), the ‘Unholy Water’ bottled cocktails (keep the bottle as a memento), and the menu’s variety (perfect for sharing with friends). We’d change: The queues at Mona – but they’re always worth the wait. Notes: The bar is open to museum visitors between 11am–6pm Wednesday– Monday. Book for dinner up to a month in advance and to go all out, a $25 deposit secures your spot and access toTurrell’s Unseen Seen and Weight of Darkness too.
