After spending the day catching up with friends we went down to Elizabeth Quay as we both hadn’t been down there yet and it was a great central point to gather for dinner with Clint’s family.
I was very impressed with how everything has turned out down there, especially with a number of the restaurants now open. The swinging bridges were great and I’m sure as works continue the number of people will continue to flow through and it will be one of the bustling spots all week. Gusto gelato has also opened and if we hadn’t eaten so much I’m sure we would’ve visited. Perhaps another time.
As the sun had gone down we wandered around and took a few photos before it was too dark.
We went to Isle of Voyage for dinner and I had a really great time. The venue itself is the one that was re-built after it had to be dismantled to make way for the quay but they have done a great job. The inside had a very Hampton’s feel about it and the outdoor tables and benches were very comfortable to sit out on, especially given it was a nice night to be outside enjoying the view.
The blue swimmer crab linguini that I had for mains was perfect. Large serving but still enough room for dessert. The cheesecake that ended the night didn’t disappoint and I would definitely return back to there for plenty more meals when we return for visits.
Well I have plenty more to see and do before I head back to Tas on Saturday morning but unfortunately for Clint is back on a plane today as his work need him back. Weather today looks like home and I’m thinking I should’ve packed less summer clothes and more winter ones.
