Cataract on Paterson

Restaurant and Cafe

Cataract on Paterson is a blend of classic interiors with a modern twist! Centrally located on the edge of the CBD, this unique venue boasts industrial design paired with contemporary cuisine, casual polished service and an elegant yet quirky charm that crafts a dining experience unlike any other.

The emphasis here is to highlight Tasmanian food products, produce superior flavours and offer guests sincere value. The seafood platter, which changes daily and is sourced strictly from Tasmanian and Australian waters, is rumoured to be Launceston’s best.

Cataract is also home to the Stone grill dining experience, which presents your meal cooking on a 400 degrees Celsius volcanic stone at your table.

Cataract is unique and one feature is its Giving Back program. This laudable initiative raises funds for local charities and in the past two years has raised over $50,000 for very deserving causes.
Open for dinner every night from 5pm. Reservations are highly encouraged are this restaurant is a favourite with locals!
