About Furneaux

Soak up beautiful water views over George's Bay at destination restaurant Furneaux on Tasman Highway in St Helens. This East Coast restaurant blends Modern Australian cuisine with a French twist in a seasonal menu focused on fresh Tasmanian produce, from elegant surrounds of white-clothed tables, wooden bifold doors, windows and copper pendent lights, casting a subtle glow over the dining room. Named after an English navigator who sailed with Captain Cook, Furneaux serves modern classics like smoky snails in garlic butter, or hot smoked salmon and tuna, baby lettuce and wasabi dressing to start. For the main, delve into beef fillet, Paris mash and Madeira sauce, or blue eye trevalla, wilted spinach and honey carrots, in a light curry sauce; finish indulgently with vanilla crème brulée.

Top french cuisine where you might not expect it
These two chefs have divided the menu up between them- which means ........ do not miss desert. When we visit regional towns like St Helens we do not expect to find restaurants of this class. Authentic french. Nice setting and ambience. Really good service. You will meet the chefs. Just stunning.


St Helens Gastronomic experience
Food is fresh and prepared perfectly. The staff are exceptional and a visit here is a must.


Furneaux takes you on a journey with cuisine that tantalises the palate and leaves you completely amazed
A special welcome by the chef at the front door and personalised chat at our table after our meal sets this restaurant apart from most. We loved our dining experience.


Fantastic, great food and terrific atmosphere. Excellent staff - well done!
