Fine Dining at its Best

Food is fabulous and it really is a fine dining experience. Meals are perfectly timed to come put with enough time between courses so that you actually enjoy the dining experience. Service was very good. Just don't bother with a coffee after dinner! Stick with a baileys on ice instead.

Great wine selection makes the food even better. Not pricey or overrated but good well presented dishes and wines. Saw many sales reps and customers there. Must be good.

We selected this restaurant as we decided to head out for a French meal. We searched and found this restaurant predominately described as French and highly rated. Our party chose to go with the degustion menu and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. We were disappointed though as we classed the food as modern rather than French which was our primary... More

Rather Heston Blumenthal inspired cuisine with items such as bacon powder. We enjoyed it as a one time experience. My husband ordered the lamb which we were informed they served medium rare - which is the way my husband likes it, but when it came out it was hardly even pink.The presentation was lovely, being brought out under a smoking...

Great food in an up-scale setting. Staff knowledgeable yet not pretentious. A supper night out. Value for money fine dining - the wine list is extensive and has Australian wines that are quality leaders.

We decided to try here using our Entertainment book vouchers.. We ate on a Saturday evening and could only get a 6pm booking, which was fine for us. We were the first in the restaurant but by the time we left at just before 8pm the restaurant was full. The wait staff were attentive but overly gushy... they were friendly... More

We went to this restaurant and was initially told they may not be able to fit us in because it was a busy night. They ended up finding a table for us which was hardly surprising given there were only 4 other people present. For a fine dining restaurant I found the menu boring and uninspiring. I had the lamb...

Enjoyed a great night with my partner for her birthday. This is a restaurant in the five star Sofitel in Brisbane and quite secluded from the bustle of the main restaurant at the Sofitel. Its decadent, well furnished and intimate for dinners to celebrate an important occasion. Degustation is available. On this occasion, we went al la Carte and chose... More

this is a 5 star restaurant with one star service. It's a French restaurant with an extensive Spanish Australian and Italian wine list. None of which seem to be available. The wines we requested they were out of stock. The list of desert wines was reasonable but wow they were out of every wine on the list. The Head Waiter... More

Although quite expensive, we found the menu easy to decipher and all of the food was amazingl Great wine choice also - made for a very merry night.
