Today is a beautiful sunny day in Devonport and the family took me to Mrs Jones for lunch. The spectacular view across Bass Strait and the great company set the scene for our lunch and the wait staff were very friendly and helpful.
That’s all very well, I can hear you say, but what did we eat? For entree we shared a delicious plate of tempura soft shell crab rice paper rolls. I could certainly have made a meal of these. We had four different mains, all of which were very tasty and extremely well presented:
Beef and reef
Slow braised lamb shoulder in cinnamon & allspice
Wild barramundi curry and
Aromatic coconut red duck curry
We were given a complimentary side of beans. The meals were neither too big nor too small – they were just right.
Two of us managed to have enough room to share the “sticky mother of a pudding” with figs, dates, white & dark chocolate. It looked & tasted wonderful. I’d definitely recommend sharing though unless you have just visited Mrs Jones for dessert. Another tried the raw salted caramel ice cream which was also yummy.
The wine list included many local Tasmanian wines by the glass and I enjoyed a couple of glasses of Goaty Hill Riesling whilst one of my daughters had a glass of a local sparkling and a mojito. The Tarkine Tiger sparkling mineral water was a pleasant non-alcoholic choice.
Coffees, hot chocolate, mocha & chai latté all came as ordered & were hot and a great finalé to our meal.
We decided we would all recommend Mrs Jones to our friends as we really enjoyed our experience. We could find no fault so I’ll give it a score of 9 out of 10.
