High tea and light lunches to delight Book Now

Welcome to The Gorge Restaurant

Only in Tasmania would you pass through one of Australia’s most enchanting inner-city reserves on your way to a delicious light lunch or high tea at a tearoom that dates back to the 1800s.

Perched amongst the cliff grounds of the idyllic Cataract Gorge, the aptly named Gorge Restaurant offers the best lunch and high tea in Launceston alongside exceptional service in a casual fine dining atmosphere.

Like our thoughtfully curated menu, you can expect your experience with us to change alongside the seasons. Enjoy a photographic high tea alongside a warming cup of tea in winter or share a light lunch beside a friendly peacock in our alfresco area in the summertime.

Looking to host a large group booking or special event?

If you’re wanting to organise something special for a larger group there is no better place than right in the heart of the iconic Cataract Gorge at our charming tea rooms. We have many different areas for you to choose from including our idyllic gardens and outdoor areas to full private use of the restaurant. Whatever your dream event is we’re here to help.
