Tasmania is renowned for the quality of its produce, particularly seafood, sourced from the pristine waters that surround this island state.

Hobart, Tasmania’s capital is nestled along the Derwent River with an imposing backdrop of Mt Wellington. With many of its fine Georgian buildings lovingly maintained and a vibrant cultural community the city has an energy all its own.

Housed in a landmark heritage building, in the main strip of North Hobart often referred to as the Lygon Street is the very stylish and contemporary 70 seat restaurant of Fish 349.

The fit out is minimalistic, made up of hard-edged stainless steel, glass, and concrete, soaring ceiling, open kitchen, simple, clean lines of black in the tables, window benches and a large abstract mural.

The restaurant serves local seafood, great fish and chips and gelati. The suits take lunch and talk business here. Families elbow the suits at dinner time and take in the action both inside and outside on the street, through the full length windows.

Tasmanian wines and beers have been selected to compliment Fish 349 meals.

This lively spot is a a must-visit for locals and tourists.
