Van Bone Restaurant

Restaurant and Cafe

Cut into the Tasmanian countryside, close to the panoramic coastal landscape of Marion Bay, is Van Bone. Set to become one of Australia’s most exciting dining destinations, Van Bone is a small-scale country restaurant with a minimal intervention ethos and carefully crafted architecture. Offering a set menu dining experience that celebrates all Tasmanian products.

Leaving the main road, the sweeping views up the East Coast will grab your attention – until you meet Van Bone’s four-metre rammed earth walls which sets the scene for what’s to come as the transition from the towering walls flow down into a small entrance to gently remind the diner of their modest scale.

Bookings are essential. Online reservations can be made from three months in advance via our website.

We recommend that guests allow three to four hours for the set menu dining experience.
All dietaries are catered for but must be specified when booking. Due to the way we create our menu, we can not accommodate unknown dietary requirements on the day. Personal food preferences will not be taken into consideration.

Sustainable, minimal intervention alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages that echo the time and place they are sourced from are served within Van Bone. We take bookings online of up to six people.
