26-May-2011 | The Stackings restaurant at Peppermint Bay has received a number of glowing reviews recently and seems to be fast cementing itself as a foodie hotspot and a wonderful dining venue for business events groups.The Australian has described The Stackings as 'one of the most interesting dining rooms in Australia today, and a bargain to boot' and 'original and intriguing' with a score of four and a half out of five.
The national newspaper also commented that 'Chef David Moyle (formerly of Byron Bay Hotel and Circa in St Kilda, Melbourne) has combined local produce, such as squab and diver-caught periwinkles, with outstanding creativity'.
The praise continues for Moyle: 'His attention to detail marks him not only as a chef but a restaurateur of the future' and 'It's a large and profoundly special meal and it's a crime we are but two of nine customers'.
Gourmet Traveller Magazine also loves what Moyle is doing and in particular the slow-roasted lamb shoulder that features nearly every day on the Peppermint Bay Cruise which includes a three course lunch at The Stackings: 'A shoulder is undeniably a lot of meat, but sitting outside in Tasmania's bracing, appetite-stimulating air can easily do it justice. The skin is golden, crisp and glistening and encases meat so tender that it almost shreds itself as it falls from the bone. With lemon cheeks for seasoning and a generous salad on the side, it's a perfect shared meal'.
It seems The Stackings restaurant has been re-invigorated with Moyle's exciting menu that focuses on using quality local seasonal produce.
With beautiful grounds overlooking the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island, Peppermint Bay has many other enticing features to make business events very memorable. There are three fantastic areas ideal for groups. Catering is available for up to 300 people in a spectacular setting with fine food and professional staff, customised to individual requirements. A luxury catamaran can also transport 160 people in comfort from Hobart to Peppermint Bay via the D'Entrecasteaux Channel.
