On my journey up the East Coast of Tasmania I stopped in the cute little town of Swansea do lunch. There looked to be a few a old school pubs in the area, but Saltshaker looked out over the water and it was a beautiful sunny day, so I headed inside.
Being still pretty much the off season, there were very few people inside and I was able to take my pic of tables with water views. The waitress was very attentive and when I selected the– pan fried scallops and prawns with lemon chilli garlic butter ($29.90) as my main, she said it was their most popular dish. I understand why. It was plentiful and the garlic butter was decadent, but not too heavy, especially considering it was only lunchtime.
I also had the Shaker Bread – ciabatta bread with garlic butter and caramelised balsamic oil ($6.50) for entree (4 pieces) which was good, but not a must have, and enjoyed a Pagan’s Pear Cider on ice (approx $10).
Would I go back? Definitely. That pasta was beautiful.
Would I recommend it to you? Yes, the view is spectacular and the pasta worth stopping in for.
