Eat the Results

The experimenting is over. Time to eat the results. Six weeks only.
Is your body ready?


The data is in. After six weeks of radical Faro Experiments and hundreds of dishes, our researchers have discovered what the people of Hobart want. Will we give it to them? Come along and find out for yourself. We’re opening Faro for another six weeks of fun, with a menu of the most infamous dishes dreamt up during The Faro Experiments. What does Chef Vinnie have in mind? We’re not telling. Go à la carte on lunch, or tackle the set menu (hint: do this one). What else? You’ll get access to parts of the dormant museum with hardly anyone else around. We’re also making it Faro’s mission to show off local musical and artistic talent while you’re trying to eat. Good luck with that.

SATURDAYS + SUNDAYS, 12–2.45pm + 3–5.45pm

25 September–1 November
À la carte lunch menu or set menu $85 per person
Drinks and art purchased separately
$30 booking deposit per person


The data is in and you get to eat it. We’ve spent the last six weeks getting experimental at Faro, dreaming up dishes that should not have been dreamt up and testing them on foolhardy locals. Come taste the results, won’t you? Dinner is a five-course mystery menu, filled with Chef Vinnie’s (and our lab rats’) favourite new creations. We’re also making it Faro’s mission to interrupt your eating with a showcase of local musical and artistic talent. You’ll also get access to parts of the dormant museum, and on your way out, cleanse your palate with Ryoji Ikeda’s spectra.


25 September–1 November
Set menu $100 per person
Drinks and art purchased separately
$50 booking deposit per person

Please note: spectra operates Saturdays only

There are still lunch and luxe dinner spots available. We'd suggest booking one of those if you don't want to miss out.


Luxe Dinner

Feeling fancy? Have your people call our people and book our most deluxe dinner of all.

You and your fancy mates will roll the dice on a mystery six-course dinner, personally prepared by Mona’s Executive Chef Vince Trim. He’ll take you on a journey through his highlights and lowlights from The Faro Experiments, including ‘Bogan Pub’ week. We’ll accompany your repast with luxe wine from the vault: you’ll drink from David’s private wine bunker, guided by a sommelier through an award-winning selection of rare bottles and back vintages. You’ll also get exclusive entry to artworks by James Turrell, experience Ryoji Ikeda’s towering spectra with hardly anyone around, and have the chance to explore parts of the dormant museum. Is your body ready?


25 September–1 November
Six-course set menu $350 per person
