The steak is very tasty and juicy, best steak I’ve tried before. The side dish is tasty as well. However the oyster is normal,not surprising me. But all others r in best range.

This is a great spot. We added Launceston to our Tasmanian holiday just to make sure we could have a return visit to the Black Cow. Best steak we’ve ever had. Great wine list also and extremely professional staff.

The Black Cow never ceases to be a delight. On this visit only we found the food to be not as hot as one would hope. Otherwise exemplary.

Extremely juicy and well cooked steak, with very thorough explanations from staff and attentive service overall. The sides, sauces and potato were also delicious and complemented the meat well. Would definitely recommend for visitors to Launceston looking for a nice meal out.

Our only concern was that once we were seated our waitress, albeit pleasant and efficient, railroaded us in to our first drinks. Also, we both being GF and DF (basically paleo) there being no dessert options DF is disappointing in a restaurant of this class. We would have thought that in this day and age more versatility should be available to cater for GF, DF, Paleo, Keto etc

Popular. Steaks, sauce and sides were great as was creme caramel but overall overpriced. Wasn't impressed when told they didn't have ordered steak size so changed order only to be told chef had already started cooking next size up! Presumptuous much?! In any case charged same price so all good.

Service was a bit slow, but what came out of the kitchen is really nice

Eat until the cows come home There’s nothing like premium Tasmanian beef, dry aged, free range, grass fed and artificial hormone free. You can taste the difference. You can taste the quality. For a truly great cut of meat, Black Cow Bistro is the place to get it in Tassie. Located in the historic art deco Luck’s Butchery shop in Launceston the ‘up market’ steak house has a wide range of steaks with different flavours and tenderness. From the delicate and tender lean Eye Fillet and fat studded Scotch through to the hearty Rib Eye and textured Porterhouse and Rump, these are top quality steaks at Black Cow. With all dishes designed around fresh local produce, you are eating from the local land when you dine here. The menu is cleverly displayed with dishes ‘Before the Black Cow’ through to ‘To the side of the Black Cow’. All delicious. Best dish: Eye Fillet Cape Grim Beef (Smithton, NW Tas) with Café de Paris butter and roasted honey brown mushrooms with thyme and garlic
