'Conti' is a Brisbane institution and a family staple to us. A delightful cosy space with an open plan kitchen whereby diners can watch the owner Beau & his team cook up honest fresh European dishes using the freshest of ingredients.

There is a separate private dining room with a large table for personal bookings. I booked this space many years ago for a large family gathering and the service was perfect.

Tuesday night is offal & their lambs brains are divine. Conti's signature dish Soy lime chicken has been on the menu for years; they wouldn't dare take it off!

Go see for yourselves....... E n j o y!

Went for dinner with our cousins from Brisbane. All round everyone loved the food. My wife had the falafel salad which was delicious and well sized. I had the chicken soy lime which was amazing!!! The soups looked great too. Overall a fantastic dining experience and good service too

We have been here a few times but not lately in the last couple of years for some reason so decided to see how it was going. I don't know why we ever stopped coming here because it hasn't changed and is just so good. When one has found the perfect place to eat one should not keep looking. Our steaks were like butter cooked to perfection with a barley risotto and asparagus. With a bottle of wine between the two of us what more could one want. Service was excellent and they were reasonably busy for a Saturday lunch. We have had most of the stayers on the menu and they are all good. Love this place.

Some things never change as is said "if you do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result you are a bloody idiot". We have always enjoyed the meals served but the service has always been terrible. Staff spend more time socialising with each other than serving. So you have a choice, go there and know that staff come first or go to the Vine where you come first. Very disappointing as the food is quite OK.

Thank you to the chef and staff at the Continental Cafe for the sensational job of catering my partner's 60th Birthday party. It couldn't have been better. The private room was set our perfectly, the food was spot on, all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed their meals, and everyone's meals arrived at the same time (no mean feat) and our waitresses were fantastic, we were looked after so well. A perfect combination and a perfect venue. There is a reason we've been returning to the Continental Cafe for over 20 years, the food is consistently good, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner, and the staff are amazing. Thank you again.
