Thank you for a great evening at your restaurant eating tasty and subtle food from entrée to dessert, accompanied by an excellent glass of pinot noir. Service was perfect and the overall atmosphere was great!

Came here for dinner on a Sunday night (group of 3) and we are so glad we came! After reading many poor reviews for the various other restaurants around Hanmer, we settled on coming here due to the large number of high ratings. We had...the oyster lamb dish with duck fat potatoes (shared between two) which was sensational- succulent lamb, ample amount for two, delicious potatoes and a decent amount of seasonal vegetables, the duck leg dish which had the most delicious red cabbage, and followed this up with the tiramisu and a chocolate fondant. We will not be able to go anywhere else from now on!More

Staff were kind and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble when managing allergies etc with the kitchen. We totally enjoyed our dining experience.

Very quaint little cottage which has been turned into a restaurant. The way the tables are laid out it still felt private. Food and service was perfect, although a little more expensive than other restaurant’s in the area, the quality and all round experience made...the difference. It was my birthday and without asking they brought my dessert with a candle and happy birthday piped in chocolate. 100% would be my first choice when I am back in Hanmer.More

Fabulous evening meal. Entrée scallops best ever. Mains of pork fillet for me and fillet for partner were tender and juicy. The mushroom pesto with steak was a hit. Great service - friendly and knowledgeable. esp wine matching.

AMAZING! Honeymoon dinner here and WOW it did not disappoint. Kim and Staff were absolutely fantastic. After a lacklustre meal down the road the night before it was an absolutely pleasurable experience dining at No. 31 Restaurant and Bar. Service was fantastic, food was the...best and vibes were incredible. 100 percent recommend this place and will definitely be back!!!More
