PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

Pure South is particularly well located, at the river level at Southgate, with a sheltered outdoor area. It's a great place for people-watching, but if you want privacy it's better to sit inside. The location is the main feature here, so the decor is kept smart, contemporary and simple with polished timber floors, dark chairs, bare tables and linen napkins.

What makes Pure South more interesting is that its focus is on produce from Tasmania and King Island. Think about it: what does well in clear air and cool waters? You've got it: seafood and beef, with some pretty good cheeses and wines as well. Pure South is ideal for the corporate market at lunchtime, with a classic dozen oysters and steak that's sure to please. But it's not limited to that – there's a range of oysters, gorgeous scallops and lamb that is worth branching out from your usual. For steak lovers, take your pick of Hereford or Angus beef served with a cholesterol-raising mash that includes King Island double cream. Waiters are good, the wine list has lots of things worth drinking, plus there's a decent selection by the glass.

Norton - 8/10/2015
We dinned here last night and were truly satisfied with the wonderful attention of the staff and the excellent quality of the food ;) The Tassy oysters were amazing as was the scallops then the mains of salmon and Cape Crim steaks were so tasty and done to perfection ! ( If I had any complaint at all it would have to be about the so called triple cooked chips - I'm afraid they were limp and nothing like the crispy chips that are traditional expected ! ) We will diffently be back and wish the restaurant the very best for the future !
