Where are the best restaurants in Hobart??

Two Clowns has been in operation since late 2012, and in that time we’ve reviewed more than 100 restaurants, cafes and burger joints!  It’s a shame we haven’t visited more, but our waistlines do deserve a modicum of respect. Yet, whenever we’re put on the spot by someone asking, “Where are the best restaurants in Hobart?”, we turn into timid little rabbits, wide-eyed and caught in the headlights. The mind goes completely blank and an awkward silence ensues…

To remedy this we’ve trawled through the numerous scores we’ve awarded and pulled together a summary for your edification.

Obligatory disclaimer: This only includes venues reviewed by us under the Two Clowns banner. I know for sure that there are some restaurants out there that probably should sit in the top 3 of one or more of the categories below, but if we haven’t eaten there then they’re not getting on the list!!

It’s also only fair that if it’s been four years since our last dining experience, we may recommend a venue at which we’ve eaten more recently, even if it scores a half mark less. That way you know the list below is reflective of what are the best restaurants in Hobart right now!

We’ve also decided to focus on venues that suit the typical ambiance expected at a particular time of day. Relaxed and convivial for breakfast, a little more formal for lunch with a preference for outdoor options, and more intimate and refined for dinner.

For the full list, check out our ‘Summary Table’ that lists every single venue we’ve reviewed, together with scores.

So here goes…
