It was so nice to have so many vegan options. We loved that all of the cocktail menu was vegan too. The dumplings were amazing.

Dãna provided the best food and service I’ve experienced for a long while: exquisite Asian flavours, fresh ingredients, healthy choices. Hoping they can maintain the standard because Hobart needs a place like this, not pretentiously “ foodie” but relaxed and welcoming.

We enjoyed the Chef feed me menu for 3. The food was diverse and very tasty. The courses were ideally staggered and our waitress was knowledgable especially with the wine selection.

What a great place to eat! The entrees - a seafood bowl and radish cakes - were lovely, as were the mains of pork hock and gado gado. However, the pork didn’t need to be nearly as salty as it was; it tasted fine but the saltiness detracted from its enjoy-ability. The wine, a Pinot Gris with an orange hue, and the Melbourne-sourced IPA were both excellent. Topping things off, the waiter was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable, and the surroundings were very agreeable, too.

It was delicious, filling and well priced. There were two of us and we ordered 5 sides, a cocktail and a beer and were very content by the end! The service was fast, knowledgeable, friendly but not mechanical. The flavours were well balanced and nothing was too heavy. The sides were large- we didn't look at the mains but could imagine they would be huge. A beautiful, relaxing and delicious evening- although we knew there was a time constraint on our booking we absolutely didn't feel pressured to eat fast and then leave.

The food was varied and delicious.
One of our party had dietary requirements which were catered for admirably.
There was more than enough food on the “ feed me “ menu.

Second time we’ve eaten at Dana- fantastic food each time. Good fun to go with the Chef’s choice- dishes I may not have ordered and would not know how good they are. Service excellent, wine list very good. Can’t fault it!

Fresh innovative food and good wine list, service was good also. Great for groups or couples. Space is lovely. Both of our waiters were excellent with the dietary requirements which can often frustrate other restaurants. Will definitely be back.

We ate outside in the sheltered area, with a gas heater to keep us comfortable. (A few malfunctioning zips in the awning let a bit to much breeze in and would be a worthwhile fix).
We had the Chef’s $65 selection and we weren’t disappointed. Plenty to eat and good variety. At the end a chocolate mousse dessert, and although I wished I had ordered the pineapple coconut concoction, it was a pleasant end to the evening. A small but good value wine selection meant we had a nice pinot to wash it all down.

Amazing food and service, went the $49 feed me and added a few extra courses. Total bill came to $100 each for a table of 4 with drinks and a donation to the charity at the time. More then enough food to not leave you feeling hungry, would definitely go back.

The food was great, fresh, tasty and presented beautifully. The staff were friendly and had good knowledge of the menu. The only thing which we could fault was the music, it was a bit to rappy for the dining experience, and maybe some blinds when the sun is shining in on the person facing the street view. But it was a great time. And have been raving about it to all that we see.

Dana Eating House has a lovely ambiance. It has great food, either shared plates of asian inspired food, or individual mains, all with beautifully fresh ingredients. There is a good wine list with a fine Tasmanian bubbly by the glass. The wait staff have just the right amount of attentiveness & know the dishes on the menu well. Great coffee, you will go back for a second one.

The food was amazing and the staff went above and beyond. Rhiannon was our waitress and she was knowledgeable, fun and had some great suggestions. My family and I were celebrating my Nanna’s 80th birthday and Rhiannon went to the trouble of arranging a special cocktail (arranged as a surprise and to Nanna’s taste) with a candle it in. It really made her night. The food was unique in flavour and there was plenty of it! My family and I enjoyed the chefs feast. We 100% recommend dining here! A big shout out to Rhiannon and all the staff, thank you!
