What makes Cataract stand out?

Owner Karen Burbury is passionate about working with the team to motivate us to be highly creative and to design a dining experience like no other.Cataract on Paterson stands out as it appeals to a wide variety of guests; our aim is for each person who visits us to feel comfortable in the restaurant. The menu is extensive and offers a wide selection of choices. Our menu showcases the best of Tasmanian produce by sourcing our beef and lamb from the north-west, seafood from the east coast and Bass Strait, and general produce from a variety of farm gates. We offer an environment that is comfortable for our loyal locals, families and tourists.

What does Cataract specialise in culinary-wise?

Our menu is heavily weighted using Tasmanian beef, lamb, chicken, pork and seafood. We are well known as a steakhouse, offer an interactive stone grill dining experience and are also rumoured to offer Launceston’s best seafood platter. Our desserts and cocktails are highly creative and have an exciting following by our guests and social media community.

Is there a signature dish that is your favourite to create?

My signature dish is Lamb Rogan Josh. I love cooking Indian food; the bold spices and vastly varied flavours are easily fused into other styles of cuisine.
