Dined here on a Sunday for lunch. Straight away we noticed what a cool interior this restaurant has. It's like a combination of modern and old fused together in a way that really worked. Very spacious. Staff were very friendly and professional. Food was great, however took a little bit long to come out. Otherwise great experience.

Changed hands November 2013. Now called Catarcat on Paterson. Went on Sunday night. Oysters were some of the freshest we have had. Tried the stonegrill- loved it. I cook for a living and was not keen, but this was great. You are basically cooking your own meat as you like and as you eat it, so you meat will never go cold as the stone stays hot (400c) for over 40 minutes. Dessert is my favourite part of dining out, and I was not diasappointed. We had the caramel cheese cake, just right, not sickly sweet and the chocolate fondant was just divine, chocolatly without being overly sweet. Must try if in Launceston.
