Barilla Bay Restaurant

Towards the Hobart Airport there is definite shortage of culinary options. However, there is the Oyster farm that provides some of Tasmania's best shelled delicacies which also has a great restaurant/function centre; Barilla Bay. 

The menu presents a great range of choices including some great non-seafood options. 

We decided to try some of the oysters - which come served natural thai, gin and tonic sorbet, crumbed with spicy salsa, kilpatrick and many more ways. For $26 you get 12 oysters in three varieties. After choosing the G&T sorbet, the spiced and crumbed option and the kilpatrick we delighted in the fresh seafood fare.

For main AJ decided to try the Pulled Pork roll which was served with a nice side salad and chargrilled corn. I opted for the special; duck served three ways; a duck sausage, a duck wonton in broth and seared crispy duck breast. The duck was beautifully seasoned and each preparation was excellent. The pulled pork was juicy and packed a punch in the flavour department.

Deciding we were too full for dessert we left Barilla satisfied with our visit and will be back next time we're in the Cambridge area - definitely worth a visit if you want to take an airport bound friend out for dinner.
