The Drunken Admiral


Seafood and Fish

Don’t be put off by the name; there is far more to do here than sample the alcohol, as a ‘Best Seafood Restaurant 2012’ recognition from the Tasmanian Hospitality Awards goes to show. The Drunken Admiral is a family run restaurant that has been established since 1979, offering locals and visitors to Hobart’s picturesque waterfront a delightful range of ‘Tassie’seafood dishes, all superbly cooked up by head chef Jamison Godfrey.

Such delectable treats on offer include the Admiral’s smoky fish stew – a hot-pot of squid, mussels, squid and oysters in a delicious tomato sauce – and for the braver diner there is the Tasman’s tasty tentacles; cooked Tasman Sea octopus soaked in white wine and Greek island style marinade, then combined with fresh salad.

Before tucking into whichever tasty meal you have decided on, be sure to take a look around and enjoy the nautical theme interior, including a sword-wielding skeleton, shimmering pieces-o’-eight and a fake shark head (complete with a sailor’s arm).

Opening times:

Monday – Sunday, 6pm – 1am.


17-19 Hunter Street, Hobart, 7000
