I went with some friends who live in Hobart and frequent the MONA. They were able to get us seating for Golden Hour, which is only held on certain nights of the week. It's basically a pre-set menu that you enjoy with other guests at...More

Before visiting Mona we stopped for lunch here. We booked in advance but I’m not sure whether you need to or not. It was Friday and quite full. The service and food was outstanding. We ordered the lamb collar and red curry flathead and sprouts...More

Mid-autumn, brilliant sunny Friday lunch and the restaurant is the place to be looking over the river, the tree and MONA. Can find no fault in anything - staff, menu, service, quality of food, presentation - all excellent. It is not cheap but worth it...More

Four of us had late lunch here after touring MONA, and found it a relaxing, unstuffy place to decompress. The food choices were distinctive and we all enjoyed our lunch, though I thought the chef tried a little too hard to combine innovative flavors. Little...More

Not sure if they allow you back into Mona after you have left. While the Source Restaurant is right next to MONA it is not actually in MONA...you need to exit MONA to go to Source. We went to the Source before MONA so did... More

I agree with David R, taxis are not expensive and there are often a few just outside the restaurant waiting to take guests back into Hobart. I wouldn't risk rushing your meal just to get the ferry. The ferry is $20 each... More

The Source Restaurant takes its name from the John Olsen painting that hangs in the ceiling of the foyer. Its focus is on local seasonal produce, presented according to the whim of Vince Trim (ha), our Executive Chef, and his team. Shared plates, fresh, uncomplicated food, and a lovely outlook over the museum grounds. À la carte breakfast and lunch, Wednesday - Monday. À la carte dinner, Fridays and Saturdays from 6pm.
