Loved ocean trout, brocollini, dumplings average but the broth they were served in was stunning. Loved flavours of all dishes we tried, thought calamari just a touch overdone and a slightly chewy. Will return.

Great location is the best thing I can say. Tourist trap on Southbank serving Tasmanian food, but sadly its all precooked and just a plating restaurant. Same short rib on menu from 18mths ago. I got tricked into going by social media seeing the chef had changed and a new menu, but should've looked into it further. A good spot for a pre-football meal maybe, but as a destination restaurant for an experienced diner, you'll be disappointed.

We really enjoyed our evening and went back 2 days after! The food is so good and original. The blends of flavours and the lightness of multi cultural cuisine make a really fine cuisine. Congratulations!

Excellent views and solid food / drinks when we went for a late lunch / snacks and drinks. Service was a bit patchy.

Great share plates and we were tastily impressed with each dish. Along the windows is most atmosphere.

Our choice of meal was abysmal. We were hungry so ordered bread while we waited. Three slices of sour dough arrived. Oh well we thought. It was quite nice bread. Then we got some butter to go with it. That was better. We both had the char grilled snapper and rice. The fishes surface was wet and slimy covered in chopped chilli and herbs. Scraped this off as it was way too strong. The lime dipping sauce was also strong. That’s all that was on the plate. Oh well. Just our lack of experience at ordering city dinners. We forgot the rice was coming. It didn’t come out for a while you see. A big bowl of rice each arrived that would serve two people gently coloured with berries but no flavour through it. The chillies at least pepped that up. We did not risk cake and coffee and left. The mtc theatre cafe served us with the best lemon tart and coffee so that made up for our dining experience.

About Pure South Kitchen

Pure South reopened this year with a new look space and a killer Tasmanian menu, designed by Executive chef David Hall. Upstairs you’ve got Pure South Dining: an a modern, special occasion restaurant with beautiful views over the Flinders St footbridge. Downstairs is the newly revamped P.S. Bar & Kitchen. This is Pure South’s relaxed and laid back little bro, an all-day eatery and bar with big bay windows facing Southbank promenade (get in early to score the people-watching window seats—people settle down and raise a family before they give up those bad boys). The menu’s built around the same top-notch King Island and Flinders Island produce, it’s just had the starch ironed out of it. For brekky, start with the chia pudding with Burlington farm berries, lemon curd and almonds, or step it up with a pillowy P.S. Brioche bun (the Nichols chicken and lemon aioli and king crab with salmon, avocado and cos lettuce are both knockouts. The menu switches up for lunch and dinner, with a few bigger plates doing the rounds. Think slow-cooked Scottsdale pork belly, or a Huon salmon fillet, pan-roasted and served up with heirloom tomatoes, seaweed ketchup and King crab kewpie mayo. Save room for dessert though—there’s a Tasmanian apple pie with a big dollop of Pyengana Dairy cream.
