Atop the tallest building in Tasmania on the banks of the River Derwent, The Point Revolving Restaurant captures one-of-a-kind breathtaking views of stunning capital city, Hobart. The only revolving restaurant in the state, The Point is the jewel in the crown of Wrest Point. It was established in 1973 and has been providing fine dining experiences ever since, with a focus on premium Tasmanian produce served with traditional French technique.
It takes a leisurely 72 minutes for the restaurant to rotate, so you get a unique perspective on this beautiful maritime city. The Point provides the perfect viewing platform for events such as the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race finale and the New Year’s Eve fireworks display.
With complimentary valet parking offered to all diners, The Point is open for Friday lunch with a set-choice two- or three-course menu, and Friday high tea with a selection of delectable treats served with French sparkling. They’re open for dinner from Tuesday to Saturday with your choice of the seasonal table d’hote or a la carte menu.
They also have a relaxed lounge menu, a young diners menu and a menu for set groups. Most impressive is their extensive wine list, offering a tremendous range of Tasmanian, Australian and international wines with an emphasis on French styles. Wines available by the bottle include the impressive Penfolds Bin 95 Grange collection, with the owner’s personal collection of Grange on display in a beautiful Tasmanian Huon pine cabinet at the entrance of the restaurant – a collection that reflects the rich history of the property and the family owners.
Another unique aspect of the restaurant is the cabinet containing original napkin rings engraved with the names of some of the first diners from 1973.
French technique is an integral part of the gastronome experience, a highlight being the flambé stations, where customers can experience their food being cooked in the traditional method at their table. This procedure creates bursts of beautiful flames to entertain the table while infusing dishes with additional aromas and flavours. It has become a signature of The Point, with classic dishes such as Flambé Prawns, Steak Diane and Crepes Suzettes featuring prominently.
Matches Made In Heaven is a quarterly food and wine matching event, where apprentice chefs can put their training into practice as they construct the menu with the varieties chosen by the featured guest winemaker. The event is open to the general public, and attracts a diverse crowd of foodies and tourists.
Experience something truly unique. It all revolves around you.
