Mures Seafood Restaurant Hobart Reviews
Feb 12, 2008
Dad and I had not made a reservation for dinner tonight and could only hope that they could squeeze us in. We were not too hopeful as there were a dozen or so other groups waiting for tables when we entered the restaurant.
Mures is on Victoria Dock in Hobart, near the finish line for the Sydney to Hobart yacht race each year, which starts on Boxing Day. There is the upper deck – the A La Carte Restaurant, and the Lower Deck bistro and oyster dive. I have eaten at the bistro previously and was impressed with it as a place to grab a quick bite to eat. This time however, dad and I wanted to spoil ourselves.
As I mentioned, we were not too hopeful of getting a table, however, the friendly staff asked us if we would mind waiting for half an hour and they could give us a table. Sure thing, we would wait. There is a bar where you can perch yourself for a nice cold drink while waiting. I ordered a glass of bubbles and the barman served me a glass of Jantz, our very own Tasmanian sparkling wine. This would have to be my favourite drop of Australian bubbly. Dad enjoyed one of the local beers.
Just as we were finishing our drinks, one of the waitresses came over to show us to our table. We were lucky enough to be given a seat at a window overlooking the docks where we could watch the comings and goings of people living on the boats.
As dad and I had missed our lobster up on the East Coast today, we were both keen to see if we could get some tonight. The menu stated there was indeed crayfish; subject to availability... oh would we be in luck? But of course we would... this is our lucky holiday.
We ordered a bottle of wine – the Rapier Traminer from the Adelaide Hills district in South Australia, and our meals. As an entree, I ordered the Asparagus, which was pan fried and served with twice cooked egg, truffle mayonnaise and a crisp parmesan wafer for $14.50. Dad ordered his favourite, ½ a dozen Bruny Island oysters Kilpatrick at a cost of $15.00. The ½ a fresh Tasmanian Crayfish dad and I both ordered, was grilled with garlic butter and served with sugar snaps, pine nuts and cherry tomatoes tossed in linguini and the price of this delectable offering, $60 for a half ($120 for the whole if you feel you can fit it in). What a mouth-watering feast. Neither dad nor I had any room left for either coffee or desert. Our waitress was Hayley who was just lovely, and looked after us extremely well.
We left impressed. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.
