A real caesar salad with a runny cooled poached egg - can recommend it also their burgers are pretty good too! The service is efficient and friendly. We had sparkling water and this was served in large glasses - good value for money.

Good food, waited a little bit for it but they were flat out!! Worth the wait anyway! Good value for money, disappointed on Sunday though as we went back for seconds & it wasn't open, so beware!!! Helpful staff, very clean throughout! Bottle shop attached also , so could be handy!

I purchased a beer, which was flat and warm. Service was average, but I have been to better places. I complained about the beer which was eventually refunded but they didn't refund it willingly. Sort of spoilt the whole night.

The title pretty much says it all, we took advantage of having a room in the new Meriton mere steps away, to really let our hair down with a large party of friends and make a night of it. The live band played alternative rock covers and were really decent. The blokes in our party took advantage of the extensive... More

I don't seem to get to Brisbane very often, even though i only live on the Gold Coast, so i finally decided to have a good night out there. A group of 5 of my girlfriends and I booked some accommodation right in the city. We asked the front desk for a recommendation on where to go for some warm... More

Had organised for my best two friends to join me in what has almost been a decade since we last went out together as we have all had family commitments. We paid for some accommodation just up the road some we could all enjoy our evening of... More

We stopped in for a few beers and to watch the rugby (Aus v NZ) apart from a very annoying Kiwi girl clapping every 2 seconds we really liked the atmosphere and layout of the bar area. Drink prices are reasonable (For Australia) and they have a wide selection of beers. What really sealed the deal for us was the... More

Our recent Christmas party for work (56 people to attend) was booked at the Transcontinental. We were sent a menu for $25 a head and a wonderful menu it was with all the christmassy type foods. It was the menu that was the decider in making the booking. What we got on the day coudl only be described, at best,... More
