  • Being our last full day in Tasmania, we decided to spoil ourselves. The staff are polite, friendly and knowledgeable. They were all happy to do the little extras that made our visit just that bit...

  • The Chocolate Museum is small but very interesting. The chocolate tasting centre only offered one single item to taste which was very unexpected and disappointing. Lots and lots of chocolate to buy...

  • Open Steak Sandwich: very nice, well cooked. The red wine and mushroom sauce was particularly nice. The cheese on top was unusual but didn't detract from the meal. The flavors were well balanced. Belgium Waffle (with lemon curd): one of the better waffles I've had recently. It's common for waffles to be served with too little sauce or other accompaniment, not the case here with more than enough lemon curd to cover both waffles. Every element of this meal was quite pleasant, the waffles were soft. The serving size was quite generous. Cappuccino: unusually creamy but a nice flavor. Not as bitter as I'm used to but a nice change nevertheless. Verdict: overall a good time, I'd go here again and I'd recommend the above. Slightly disappointed that they had sold out of a couple of menu items we wanted to order, in particular the "Ultimate Anvers Taste Sensation", their dessert tasting board.
  • First impressions, atmosphere, service and quality are all part of the experience. Let’s begin…. The interesting historic old building attracts your interest straight up, with the antique museum and chocolate making viewing window there to offer an insight into modern and past practices. The main entrance on our arrival was congested with other patrons, and the plastic doorway strips/ curtain that had to be pushed through kind of defeated the Covid sanitation measures that were requested upon entry. Although no tables were available for a dine in experience, the friendly waitress offered a take away option which we accepted, whilst admiring numerous empty tables without a reservation label to say otherwise. The turkey & cranberry toasted sandwich was good (but would have been fantastic if it were hot). We had to go searching for it as it seemed to have gone missing in action (left on the front counter for all the staff to see). The coffee & hot chocolate was delivered 10 minutes earlier to the location we were kindly asked to wait. As I am sure you would understand, I enjoy my coffee. The coffee here was less than drinkable & made its way to the bin, the hot chocolate however was yummy & chocolatey. Not the best experience overall, sorry only 2 stars, 1 for the lovely sandwich the other for the lovely & yummy selection of free Anvers chocolates that we got with our takeaway drinks……
