Some say historic Salamanca is one of the most beautiful & romantic locations in the country - and we absolutely agree. Original sandstone buildings still line the cobbled streets with Hobart's famous wharf a stones throw away. If you are considering planning a wedding in Hobart look no further than La Mensa. Why? Because we offer the following:

  • A dedicated restaurant wedding planner who will guide you through your food and beverage options;
  • A team dedicated to crafting your menu and free taste testing;
  • Seating for up to 180 people - this is almost impossible to find elsewhere in Salamanca!
  • Very affordable prices;
  • An envious location, across from the water, close to parks and historic galleries as well as a short walk away from Hobart's best accommodation options - don't worry we will provide hints and tips based on years of experience in the area to ensure your special day is unique and memorable;
  • Free use of the venue all day*, don't spend money on hire fees - save it and spend it on yourselves, a small gift from us!

Please contact us for more information - we can't wait to start creating the magic with you on your big day!  

*Subject to reasonable minimum spend requirements
