Update mid-June: The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery will reopen on 20th June for lunch on the weekend, however Rodney and Severine are planning to also continue their Kiosk service for takeaway food at the weekends which is why we have also included them in the Food Shop category.
The review below was written before the lockdown, but we have left it here to provide you with an understanding of why we love this place so much!
The Agrarian Kitchen Eatery is one of Tasmania’s leading restaurants housed in the former Willow Court in New Norfolk which was a mental hospital for over 170 years before closing in 2000. The building occupied by the Eatery is airy and luminous with fabulous windows providing views over the sprawling complex.
The food is prepared by a talented kitchen team using a purpose-built woodfired oven and wood-fired grill to transform the vegetables and proteins that are primarily sourced from the Agrarian Kitchen gardens.
On each visit we have been unable to resist the iconic Tasmanian dish of deep fried potato cakes. Here the best possible potatoes are coated with a batter and deep fried to crispy deliciousness with the potatoes cooked to just the right degree of “doneness”.
Every time we call in here for a snack or a full meal we are delighted with the food we are served. The chefs manage to select excellent produce from their own garden and many others in the area and then treat this produce with the respect it deserves.
It is well worth the short drive from Hobart to enjoy the hospitality overseen by owners Rodney Dunn and Séverine Demanet.
