Good Service Good Food

We enjoyed our meal here. As recommended my husband and I had the Death Row meal which was prawns on the night we went. The Prince Harry Cocktail was good as were the pork belly tacos. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. Nice setting and enjoyable.

The waitress that greeted us at the door set the tone for the night sadly. She was disinterested and condescending from beginning to end. Our friend's arrived 5 minutes after us & made the same comment. The food was ok although a bit hit and miss.mwe had to ask them to slow down a bit as they wanted to serve... More

If you're looking for it the first time, Burnett Lane will feel a little dingy, but continue to the Survey Co.'s hole in the wall and you're in for a treat. Every course was fantastic and the tapas-style food lends itself to sharing around the table. Despite a couple of other reviews, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the wine... More

Interesting and trendy in a Brisbane back lane. A little noisy, great wine list although the waitresses had no idea about it, maybe have a staff wine tasting? In fact, the wait staff generally could be a little more switched on, they seem a little vague and/or intolerant. Again with the difficulty on uncorking a bottle and having to take... More

Had wine by the glass which was corked. Waitress took it away but returned with the same glass....comment from the manager was that that is how it tastes....and he could not be bothered to come himself even thought we were the only clients there. If that is what they call service no wonder it was so empty.

An amazing hidden gem of a restaurant off the Queen Street mall down Burnett Lane. The food is tapas style and the menu unique. Too many great dishes to have a favourite. The service was outstanding and the waitress extremely good in her recommendations on what to order. Very modern and sleek design premises. Perhaps a little noisy on a... More

Hiding in Burnett Lane through an unsuspecting door is a long corridor of a restaurant. I was so pleasantly surprised. I thought the name was causing me concerns about what type of restaurant it would be but I was meeting up with 8 other friends who meet every couple of months and we try the latest and greatest that Brisbane...

This is a trendy restaurant with fabulous food combinations and excellent service..My favorite is the duck; however the pork belly tacos are amazing, as is the corn on the cob.
