This time we started down at TORO which is a new little cocktail, tapas bar. We had a few cocktails each and everyone raved how amazing they were. We then walked up about 25 metres up to deer duck bistro. The menu had changed and we were told that the original chef was now back and creating some wonderful dishes.... More

This place is certainly aiming for the high end customer. Very cute decor creating an interesting atmosphere, with silver service-style service by the waiters. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of paying ridiculous amounts of money for very little food, no matter how apparently elite the establishment! I ordered a salad which arrived on a giant-sized plate with a tiny circle... More

Our visit to Deer Duck was arranged by friends buying us a Scoopon voucher. Walking in was a bit "Don't know about this one" But then what a great supprise. The place is set up in the style of old furniture and many paintings and prints taking you back some 50 years. The staff,ever so proffesional, did their outmost to... More

My husband, mother, father and myself went there last night to celebrate my birthday with a Scoopon Voucher and had the most wonderful evening. The waitresses were very attentive and professional, the food although different was very good, the ambience was amazing. This place is a little pricey, but in my opinion it is well worth it! Thanks again for... More

To wait 40 minutes for a wine list - and we had to ask for it - and then to take 3 hours to serve 3 courses - well it was just too long. Food is nice, well cooked but serving sizes are on the smaller side so an extra bowl of veg is needed for hearty eaters. We will... More

I love this place. Second visit in 12 months and want to come back. We loved the tasting plate and e fresh produce. We indulged in the chocolate tart for dessert. Make sure you go to Toro Bar down the road as well- it is owned apparently by the same conglomerate and the cocktails there are amazing. Thank you Deer... More

My wife and I ate there two consecutive nights when we visited brisbane. Between us we tried four of the mains. We greatly enjoyed the duck, the roast chicken, the beef cheeks and the chicken Ballantine. There was not a bad word to say about the experience. Great service and the atmosphere was very relaxing. Overall I would gladly eat... More

Two of us celebrated a birthday by utilising a voucher. Can't fault the service - attentive, polite and eager to help. Food platter was nice. Mains was a good choice. I had the snapper fillet which was nice and shared it with my dining parnter who shared her duck mains with me. The duck was very nice but the 1/2... More

Lovely atmosphere, but meals didn't deliver consistently. Pork belly for entree was delicious - fantastic texture, but there were some useless additions to the plate which did nothing to enhance that flavour. Beef cheek was nice too but potato tasted like it had been under the heat lamp for a while. Great to be able to bring a great wine... More
