Enjoyed lunch here. The food was really fresh and well prepared. The waiting staff were pleasant and knowledgeable. One of the "dish of the day" was outstanding really flavourful would certainly make an effort to dine here again.

In the centre of the Eagle Street wharf dining complex, this one stands out. Interesting menu from woodfired ovens, there's some exciting flavours here. Service was outstanding, which restores my faith in Queensland eateries; after some decidedly average experiences.

Seems that you are paying for the location, the meals are resonably priced, my wife had coal roasted chicken with salad at $19.50, but there was probably an entire large chicken on a small salad which some might enjoy. There needs to be a better balance between the meat and salads. The wines are very expensive, a bottle of The... More

Big, fat and juicy burgers served with side of chips always goes down well. The high quality of the ingredients used and reasonably priced product ensures return business. Service was attentive without hovering. Excellent venue for a relaxing lunch.

Requested outside table overlooking the Brisbane River and Storey Bridge which was delivered and was excellent. All staff were very polite and attentive upon ordering of dinner and drinks. Problems began with pre-dinner/during... More

Very average steak, certainly didn't live up to the price charged. I've had far better steak at the local pub for a quarter of the price. Medium rare steak is not an even light pink colour either! Avoid ordering the $12 cauliflower side, chargrilled cauliflower is disgusting. 2 Beers, 3 glasses of house wine, two steaks, one plate of bitter... More

Enjoyed a dinner for one here on a Tuesday evening. Didn't have long so only had a main. Best steak I have had for a long while. Was cooked to perfection. Also enjoyed one of their fantastic cocktails. All staff were attentive and made sure I had everything I wanted. Got to sit at the Chef's table and the view... More
