Ok, so I booked a table for my girlfriend and I for valentines day dinner for the 8pm seating. I booked for the VIP seating where my girlfriend and I were meant to have a table on the balcony overlooking the river, we paid an extra 100$ for this. On arrival we were told that the first seating was just... More

For the price, the food was only okay. The sides were the best part of the meal, the steaks weren't very well seasoned, and just didn't impress anyone at the table. The servers were slow and we had to ask for refills on water and drinks from the bar.

Very good squid, OK sirloin steak, red wine (shiraz from Adelaide) of good quality but served to warm. Atmosphere lively but unfortunately loud. Service very friendly and warm, excellent!

Disappointed, my wife is Vegan, and even after highlighting the fact with the booking , ringing the venue the day before to confirm, the waitress still had no idea what Vegan even meant. After much frustration she returned with a yellow highlighted and laminated piece of A4 paper with one vegetable dish listed. Amateur hour at its best, in fairness... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant for my birthday in November. Firstly the decor and atmosphere are amazing plus the view of the river and bridge makes the dining experience even better. The food was delicious, service was great and it wasn't over priced. Will definitely visit again when we go back to Brisbane!

Recommend to try this place when you are in Brisbane. Thoroughly enjoyed the yummy food in a lovely setting with easy friendly service. A great selection of dishes which are designed to be shared from small, medium to large shared plates like the Lamb and Rump. Both which are over 1kg - yes make it a night out with family,... More

It is good food, but expensive and service was slow. It took them nearly 15 minutes after the food arrived to advise my friend who'd asked for chilli sauce that they didn't have any. By the time they'd brought the fresh chilli slices, which was the alternative offered, she only had 3 mouthfuls left. Admittedly we were there on a... More
