About The Duke Restaurant

Dine in vintage splendour at The Duke Restaurant on Macquarie Street in Hobart. This heritage-listed hotel has been serving the city for more than 170 years and still retains old school charm both outside and in, with a classic façade welcoming guests into relaxed surrounds. Step into a moody dining ambience of dark walls, slate fireplace and wooden furniture and savour enticing starters like salt and togarashi pepper squid, served with Asian slaw and sticky ginger; or spicy wedges, sour cream and sweet chilli sauce. Salivate over mains of Tasmanian Scotch fillet, potatoes, seasonal vegetables and red wine jus; or chicken breast, sweet potato mash, greens, garlic and leek cream sauce. Finish decadently with apple and rhubarb crumble, caramel, pistachio, almond and vanilla ice cream.

Wonderful hosts, great food and drink


Quality food, warm authentic atmosphere, live music
This is by far one of the best places in Hobart when it comes to entertainment, quality food and atmosphere. Lots of variations in events, wholesome real people, and friendly staff make this icing on the cake after a quality meal with family, friends or mates


Fab food and great entertainment


Spectacular food
A changing menu that seems to just keep getting better and a focus on personal service.


Sensational mushroom risotto for lunch
We stayed just down the road at Macquarie Manor and thoroughly enjoyed a lunch of local mushroom risotto and vegetable special with local dark beers (there’s a great selection of beers too). The risotto was generous, tasty and fantastic for $15. The friendly helpful service and a chat with the owner made this meal truly exceptional. Pleased to be able to say this is better than most popular international places we’ve been to. Overall a most memorable experience - highly recommended!


Great, cosy pub food
For entrée I had the bread with a trio of dips. All of the dips were clearly home made and delicious, a great start to the meal. For mains I had the lamb shank with mash and sprouts. The lamb was juicy, the mash creamy and the sprouts were a nice compliment to the meal. Great service, food was delivered in good time and I was provided a very personal experience. Would highly recommend; the best meal I've had in Hobart.
