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.
