About Mudbar Restaurant

Enjoy fine dining on Launceston’s waterfront at the Chef Hat-awarded Mudbar Restaurant, situated at the Old Launceston Seaport. Patrons gather around the bar to enjoy harbour views through sleek floor-to-ceiling windows, while excited guests sink into dark chocolate-toned cushioned seats under warm mood lighting. Opt for aperitifs at the elegant bar, or go straight for an innovative menu, where a range of Euro-Asian fused cuisine is sure to awaken your senses. Enjoy a long lunch of wasabi oyster shooters, before seared Huon salmon, yuzu, nori custard and sticky mirin rice; arrive later for an entrée of sous vide octopus, gochujang aioli, apple and cucumber salsa. For the main, try soy-roasted duck, mushrooms, Cheung fu noodles, mint and lettuce chiffonade, finish with vanilla panna cotta.

Great Food, Great Wine & Fabulous Service
We were entertaining family visiting from overseas and wanted to impress them with the best Launceston can offer. On a Monday evening, Mudbar was buzzing, the service was warm, welcoming and just the right sort of attentive right throughout the meal. The two-courses option for $66 was a real hit and the five of us each tasted ten fantastic dishes. The seared scallops were the standout entree, the Mudbarfarm lamb and 90deg beef were equal favourites for the mains and the chocolate parfait was definitely the winning dessert. Thanks Mudbar for making a family reunion a memorable night for us all!
