Our hours, generally Tuesday to Saturday for dinner
Lebrina, an à la carte restaurant, offers a dining experience reminiscent of being in a private home. Remarkably little was needed to change the fabric of Lebrina, Thomas White’s gracious 1844 New Town townhouse to Lebrina, the restaurant, in 1994. Dinner guests still admire the triple Flemish Bond brickwork as they arrive, then the New South Wales flame cedar or Celery Top Pine woodwork as they enter one of the dining rooms; the classic simplicity of a Georgian Victorian house sets the scene for the food they will experience, the cuisine inspired by Northern France and Italy utilising the best of Tasmanian produce. Lebrina, the house and Lebrina, the restaurant, share a name; Lebrina is a Koori word meaning ‘house.’ The restaurant is imbued with the quiet charm of the house.
Lebrina is open, Tuesday to Saturday, for dinner only from 7pm, or sometimes a little earlier, by prior arrangement. Dinner groups of 6-10 diners have the possibility of securing one of the rooms in the older part of the house for their exclusive use; tables of 2-4 diners generally share one of the rooms, however there are never more than 3 tables in any of the rooms. In 1999, we added a dining pavilion to the rear of the house, overlooking our leafy, sheltered courtyard. This room can be hired for groups of 12-24 diners.
Lebrina is a fully licensed restaurant, with a comprehensive pre and after dinner drinks list as well as an extensive wine list from Tasmania, mainland Australia and Italy.
