Mures Upper Deck

Review: Mures Upper Deck (Hobart, TAS)

A catch-up dinner with good friends from uni who were attending the conference took us to Mures, a two-level restaurant that is right on the wharf. We dined at the fancier restaurant on level one, aptly named “Upper Deck”.

I’m the kind of person who dislikes drinking white wine by itself but loves pairing it with food. I ordered a nice glass of 2016 Chartley Estate Riesling that paired well with my meal.

White wine

Glass of Riesling ($14)

I ordered the seafood tasting plate with blue swimmer crab salsa, Tasmanian scallop ceviche, ocean trout tartare, two tempura oysters (three natural for the gluten-free option) & saffron aioli. As a side, I had the asparagus, pan tossed with goats curd and hazelnuts. Both dishes were excellent on their own and even better together.

Asparagus ($9)

My friends ordered dishes that would normally be considered ordinary but were taken to another level. The seafood laksa ($41) certainly did not contain any frozen seafood mix, but instead came with Spring Bay mussels, Tasmanian scallops, premium white fish, Atlantic salmon, Bass Strait squid, Australian prawns with tempura shiitake mushrooms, chilli, fresh herbs & rice noodles. Likewise, the wild fish & chips ($38.5) could be either beer-battered or sesame & almond crumbed and came with organic greens, citrus fennel & seasoned fries. Great fries, by the way, and thanks Justin for sharing :)

The Bottom Line
Drinks: 3.5/5, good wine and cocktail selection.
Food: 3.5/5, locally sourced, well executed dishes.
Service: 3.5/5, polite and unpretentious.
