Hunting for something special after a long day travelling we ventured down a suspicious looking alleyway with some trepidation. Pressed the buzzer at the gate and immediately received a warm welcome, seated promptly and settled in to read the menu. Venue was clean and tidy, textures of burnished leather, wood, brickwork and steel under lighting that was soft and intimate,... More

I'm not a tipper, but we tipped here. Really alternative, modern, cosy little place tucked away in the city makes you feel like you're apart of the trendy underground lifestyle. The staff are super relaxed, helpful and polite - just awesome! And the food and the drinks were great. Really different menu as if they picked great things from every... More

From the moment the door slides open, you feel warmly welcomed (they offer to take your coats and hang them at the door, first time I've ever been anywhere they've offered). The staff continue to be friendly, and my friend and I were served by a cool accented brunette girl who was extremely lovely. She gave us recommendations on what... More

A really good restuarant hidden away in a lane. Not your normal menu but good food. We shared all our courses and it was awesome to be able to try different things. Desert was presented in a bed of chocolate.

The Survey Co is one of those "uber" places. That's not writing it off as too hip for anyone but the short-back-and-sides crowd, though. I'm a couple of generations older, and I found its slick interior, moody lighting and intimate but not cramped spaces very conducive to the whole gastronomic experience. This stylish restaurant is an old brick building that... More

Housed in an uninviting side lane between buildings in Brisbane city, the Survey company opens out into a fairly large restaurant. The decor is industrial chic, but comfortable. However, it is the food that sets The Survey Company apart. Fresh, interesting, servings not too large, not to expensive, and the staff are happy for you to share. I live in... More

What a meal! Down a laneway in Brisbane should have more restaurants like Survery Co. There is alot to be said for simple, good quality ingredients treated well and an atmosphere to match. We sat down early to a near empty restaurant which bode well for attentive and friendly staff and food delivery times. We ate from the specials of... More

Tucked away in a lane off the very busy Queen Street Mall, this place is a real gem. A great mix of food that you can buy in "medium" portions and share. A true Brisbane experience away from the madding crowds on Queen Street and Southbank. A local says it has the air of the cooler places of Melbourne. The... More

Having arrived in Brisbane and still getting to know our way around we thought we would wander down to this restaurant. It was so busy we didn't think we would get a table, but they pulled one out of thin air. We shared two starters, the pickled things and pork tacos were so tasty. The main course was a special,...
