Our first stop on mum's visit to Brisbane we had a late lunch. Pork Belly was delicious. We returned again for Mother's Day breakfast. Informed we had a long wait due to demand which was fine. The ocean trout was so beautiful and tasty. Would return again!

Stopped of here for some desert after Greek dinner. I got the flourless chocolate cake with the espresso martini and my wife got the deconstructed lemon tart with chai latte. Both very good. Wait staff were excellent, very friendly,and we had nice relaxed atmosphere.

Tried and tested. Still love the omelet. I think the first version was the best but it is still good.

We got in quite late, 9pm. Host was very friendly, waiter was very helpful. Some of the word used on Menu is quite fancy (may be because we don't dine out so often so don't know the lingo). Needed to ask him. He's explained to me very politely. Thank you for that. My wife had chicken with salad & I... More

Certainly interesting elements, great venue. Very busy at breakfast, understandable waiting time which should however be communicated before customers are seated... 45 minutes wait to have food delivered. Good service, pretty expensive.

Definitely check Gunshop Cafe out if you like waiting over an hour for your meals and getting a shrug and a "can't be helped" attitude without an apology. Also clean your dishwasher. Your glasses smell like egg. 😷 My 2 stars is generous...

This has been my favourite breakfast in the whole world for over 10 years - and it still performs. The most amazing food (especially the French Toast) and atmosphere - it's a Saturday morning favourite

We visited for dinner and ordered a few entrees to share and mains each. Attention to detail in the plating and the food was delicious and great value for money. Service attentive and friendly. I would recommend the steak and lamb. My husband said it was the best cooked steak he has ever had. The kale chicken quinoa salad was... More

Some restaurants serve up interesting dishes but the gun shop (was once a gun shop) Serves up dishes that other establishments only wish they could conjure up. I am sure their success is more than replicated by other restaurants.

We were unsure what to expect, but while this 'cafe' was crowded, the service and food was fantastic. The serves were just of the right size. While the lunch menu was not big it certainly had a nice variety. Do not go if you expect 'pub' food. The dessert menu was a hard decision as many favourites but with a... More
