Great location and atmosphere. Starters delicious. Small serves. Would have liked some sort of chips as a side for the steak. Definitely needed to order more sides for main. Waiter may have forgotten our mains as it took a long time (almost 40mins) to come out. Overall a good experience but not as amazing as we were expecting.

I asked the Maître d’ which was the better wine having picked two to have. They did not know and said they would ask someone and come back. Still waiting for her to comeback. Asked another waiter and he did not know either, totally useless. Eventual just picked one. The restaurant was not busy and staff were NOT attentive. Did not fill the wine glasses, did not refill water glasses, did not clear plates when finished did not ask for desert orders. Had to ask staff every time, NOT proactive in their service. Claiming to be Five-Star, would give it one star. Overall a terrible experience and would not recommend this place. I would expect the rest of the hotel to be of a poor service standard.

On the pricey side, especially the drinks. $58 for a bottle of house wine...
Time limit on booking so order quickly otherwise the over attentive staff will make you feel rushed, so definitely not a relaxing vibe.
Upside, food was beautiful, setting was lovely and the staff very polite.
Would probably go back just for dinner on a special occasion, not a catch up with old friends.

Food is ok, most of the dishes were fine, but fish was way over cooked and under seasoned. When mentioned to a waiter he just said “Yeah” and no action or at least a simple sorry I mentioning it to the chef.

A fabulous location & view towards Southbank ...a small but thoughtful menu with plenty of variety to choose ...we enjoyed the BBQ octopus & spammer crab betel leaves for our entrees which we shared amongst three of us. The 8 hour shoulder of lamb looked tender & delicious & it was - we ordered a side of roasted potatoes and chargrilled broccolini to complement the meat & accompanying zucchini squash salad - all beautifully cooked & presented ... there were leftovers! .... purely as an indulgence we shared a couple of the desserts ! Good portions & yum. We enjoyed our Shiraz and found the waitstaff helpful and cheerful. There was some low level noise from the street but that is part of city dining but we loved looking across the river to the lights of Southbank. Our only small negative comment was the background music was ‘meh’ and we felt not particularly vibey for the restaurant .... but we will certainly return ... city prices but good value for money .... nice ambience & decor !

Our group of four enjoyed our dining experience starting with drinks upstairs at the Wet Bar with fabulous views from the outside balcony. Dinner was a relaxing and delicious affair of two entrees and sharing of three mains and two sides, which was a generous dinner. We must praise the effortless, affable service for which we tipped well. The only disappointment was the Venison Tataki which was barely there, it was a tiny taste and seriously overpriced. Overall though the experience was very good and great value and we would all go back next time we’re in Brisbane.

This is a large restaurant and we were placed in a rear area with one person having to face a wall, which is a shame considering the outlook is over the river. Entrees were good with the oysters and the Raw Fish the stand out however the Betel Leaf was a little bland. Decided to split the baked Whole Fish for main which was disappointing as the fish was a little mushy and the flavours lacking spice, the menus states lemon grass and chilli included but it was hard to discern. Wine list was reasonably extensive with lots of good options. Overall OK and would probably go back and try other mains on the menu.

Great food and nice interior, however the restaurant insisted on keeping the terrace doors open, leaving us really cold and wind-swept - even though we were seated indoors. It was a cold and windy Brisbane day, but one would think that being indoor would keep us warm. Apparently it wasn't possible to close the terrace doors (we were seated just next to the opening) nor could they offer us table located somewhere warmer inside the restaurant. We had to leave after the mains, as we were freezing cold. This was particularly disappointing as it was my husband's birthday and we had brought along our daughter to celebrate what should have been a special family occasion.
