Stay in the area and wanted something to eat. The other places were booked out so gave this place a go. Id say give this place a go. Service is prompt. Got a table almost straight away. Has plenty of seating. Food prices are as expected in any aussie town but could help with some deflationary pressure. Had the blue eye which was slightly overdone and my partner had the burger. Could say its not bad not great as a meal. Couldnt complain.

Food was great. The bar and service staff were so friendly and sweet. Bit noisy in parts, but seriously nice place to sit and eat and just enjoy a late summer evening.

We had dinner here on 11 Feb 2024 - the food is really delicious and we ate everything. The tarven is well decorated with a lot of paintings by a local Australian artist and there is even a snooker table at the other side of the restaurant. Nice place to eat in Freycinet.

This pub does good pub food, it is a good meal and reasonably priced.

We did order the Mexican parmigiana and the special, Porterhouse Steak

Both were cooked well and enjoyable meals

I also ordered hot wings or American style wings. I didn't particularly enjoy these.

Enjoyable bistro though, good range of inside or outside seating.

Parking available.

Wait staff were helpful and friendly.

If you are in Freycinet for few nights, worth adding to the list of places to have a meal (there is only about to choose from)

Local tavern that's got a good mix of pub food. Service by the staff was top notch and much higher than what I would expect in a local tavern.

We had the lamd shank which was nicely cooked and had good taste, the mashed potato wasn't properly mashed but that's a small mistake in a overall good dish. Fish curry was decently put together and fish was delicious.

Dinner here was certainly a highlight of our trip! Upon stumbling by this restaurant at Coles Bay, we were completely dumbfounded by the level of high-quality service and food we received. From entree to dessert, each dish was beyond exceptional and this is coming from my father (who was a chef). The medium-rare steak was juicy, smoky, and cooked to perfection. I would say it even outshines high-end steak houses in Hobart. Other dishes such as the lamb shanks or curry are also worth trying out. If you're ever passing by Coles Bay, I would definitely recommend dinner here.

Collectively we ordered; Veggie burger, beef burger, chicken burger, pork belly and cheesey garlic bread for entriee.
The food was on the higher end of what you would expect from a small local pub.
Watching the chef prepare our meals, you can see that love went into the plating of the food.
The facilities and decor is what you should expect from a small local pub, getting tired but still full of love.

Wasn't expecting much from a tavern in small town with limited options, but was pleasantly surprised. Oysters super fresh, and the mains were all excellent, and all with a nice vew and relaxing atmosphere.

My partner and I visited the Iluka Tavern for dinner while staying in Coles Bay & we were very happy with the meals and service that we received! The burger, parma and cheesy garlic bread were delicious and the sticky date pudding was amazing for dessert. A big shout out to the amazing, friendly staff that work there! We will be back next time we are in Coles Bay.

Went here for dinner and this was the closest restaurant and a pub near where we stayed in Coles Bay. This restaurant reminds me of Safe Haven movie. Food was definitely good and good portion. ?

This place was a hidden surprise, the food was absolutely delicious!
Whilst the premises may not scream 4/5 star, the food comes through. With friendly staff and a kids playroom, we are going back tonight.

Amazing food was pleasantly surprised by the choices and I am vegetarian. All my friends who are not also loved their meals. Staff were lovely and there's a playground for the kids to be entertained. Would definitely recommend

What a surprise, was expecting usual pub grub and was so happy that this place delivers excellent food cooked and delivered with care.

Simple but delicious chowder followed by a perfectly cooked fish of the day. My partner commented that the crayfish pate was unique and tasty. Will be back.

The staff at the Tavern were absolutely amazing! They were so accomodating for my large booking, especially as the booking was on a long weekend. Everyone working the night we were there went above and beyond to make sure everyone had the best night. I can't recommend them enough!

Found this gem on maps while looking for dinner, had the oven baked trout and the chicken parma with chips, plus some little creatures for good measure, one of the best meals I've had in a while and we've had so many great meals while in Tassie
