Urban Greek


A spacious, modern venue with a heavy metal-looking minotaur on the wall (yes), Urban Greek is simply awesome. It’s run by the friendliest, most cheerful team you could ever hope to meet, and the Greek cuisine is beautifully prepared and thoroughly delicious. As for the food, we’d highly recommend you give the Moschofilero Seafood Tagliatelle Pasta a go!

Let’s keep things Greek for now, shall we? In fact, we’ll get more specific and check out the island of Crete, whose rich culinary output can be found here at FILOS. This cosy, no-frills joint is all about the flavours, and we can readily assure you they’re some of the best in town! If you can’t decide what to pick, go for the Cretan Dakos, which is Cretan bread, olive oil, tomato, feta, olives and oregano.

If it’s Turkish cuisine you crave, we can think of no better place in all of Tasmania than good old Pasha’s. It boasts much more variety than your average Turkish takeaway, and the level of delectable authenticity is simply unmatched. Fresh, local produce is all you’ll find here, and you should definitely try the Marinated Lamb Cutlets. As they like to say in Turkey, afiyet olsun!

 “What a great visit. Colourful Mid Eastern style decor, with natural wood flooring, inviting ambience. The dishes were excellently prepared, presented piping hot, with a very generous serve, and very affordable prices. Dinner at night is very busy, reservations are advisable, licensed & BYO. Definitely worth a visit.” – Trev Scott

The Mill on Morrison


Wine, tapas, creative cocktails and proper Australian beers make The Mill a very tempting proposition indeed, and it’s no surprise that it’s considered one of Hobart’s leading Spanish spots. With its warm interior, interesting art and occasional acoustic sets, it’s a lovely place to enjoy a good meal. You can’t go wrong with The Mill’s Paella, with chorizo, seafood and marinated chicken.

Syra Restaurant

Battery Point

A recent addition to the Salamanca set, Syra Restaurant is pure contemporary Middle Eastern heaven. The food here is absolutely top notch, from the Lebanese dumplings to the Turkish delight sorbet, and the atmosphere is one of relaxed intimacy and pleasant vibes. If you want a proper feast, the Twelve Hour Braised Lamb with baba ganoush and pistachio tabbouleh is the way to go!
