Cooked to perfection, medium rare and nicely charred on the outside. Loved the potato galette. - Black Cow Bistro, Launceston (TAS)
Loved the citrusy gel and the tangy dressing. - Black Cow Bistro, Launceston (TAS)
The flavour was good, loved the fennel and sesame seed combo. Shame the chef didn’t remove the inner skin otherwise delicious. - Black Cow Bistro, Launceston (TAS)

    The quality of the food and wine was amazing. Felt a little rushed by one of the waitresses initially but overall really good.

    Certainly not the Cow of old. The standards in quality of food have definitely diminished over the past few years. Service is still good but the food (given the price) is under par. Chewy calamari for entree followed by a pretty tough pub quality steak as main is disappointing once the BIG bill appears. Others in my group agreed with this underwhelming sentiment.

    Great service and fantastic food - the steaks are to die for and the selection of sauces and sides complete the meal. A real gem in the heart of Launceston. Highly recommended.

    A tiny restaurant but busy, buzzy and very inviting. The King Island eye fillet was so tender I could cut it with my fork and it was beautifully cooked and so tasty. Highly recommended.

    The staff explained the menu clearly, the food was excellent, just so delicious especially the sauces and beef. The staff were friendly and attentive. The red wine was local, good to see a restaurant promoting Tasmanian wine..A definite must if you come to Launceston

    As always the Black Cow did not disappoint. Entree was Scottsdale Pork Belly, chilli jam, black sesame and pickled radish. Just divine. The Charcuterie Board was delightful. Steaks were cooked so perfectly and the flavour amazing. The sides were just as inventive and delicious. The mascarpone mousse with raspberries and meringue and the Chocolate Mousse were to die for. The wait staff are attentive and friendly, but not intrusive. My water was keenly monitored and I never got down below 1/2 a glass before it was topped up. My only complaint was the we were charged $3.5 per person for the bread and you only get one slice each. This place is definitely not cheap, but for the most part the food, presentation and flavour adventure make it worth the outlay.

    Service is quite good. The oysters are fresh and their sauce are really excellent. It’s our first time to eat such a beautiful and yummy potato product with the steak. The chocolate mousse after meal is not so sweet and we love its generous flavors!

    Every time I fly to Launceston for work I eat at the Black Cow and the staff there know what I like to order and they make me feel special. I have never been there and it not be busy. Booking is highly recommended! Excellent atmosphere and the food is out of this world. Worth the cost and guaranteed an enjoyable, special evening.

    Food was excellent and the service was really good too. Our waitress Julia was great, highly professional yet very personable. The Pork belly and NY strip steak were up there with the best I have had.

    A very welcoming place...excellent steaks and wine...we all had the roasted squid for entree which was a little chewy...the ladies had 200gm eye fillets and the men the large scotch fillets for maincourse...lovely sides of cauliflower au gratin and asparagus and delicious sauces to choose from...thoroughly recommend this place if a perfect steak is what you are looking for.

    Excellent everything from the warm welcome and brilliant service to the amazing food. I can't wait to go back again. The slow cooked rump was succulent and tender, the sides generous and flavourful.

    All members of our party thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Black Cow. Food was amazing and the service was perfect. We were lucky to be given a private room, making it all the better. Very pleased we didn't miss this experience.
