DELIGHTFUL, DIVINE, DELICIOUS CUISINE !

I am an addictive foodie and I eat out at least several times a week. This restaurant blew me away. I seriously have not experienced cuisine as creative and as tasty as I did today. My Bestie and I shared a few dishes over lunch and finished with a trio of icecreams. There were no words to... read more

A "hidden" part of Brisbane's dining scene, but well worth the find in one of Brisbane's thriving Laneways. The Survey Co tucked away at 32 Burnett Lane turned out to be perfect for dinner & potentially one of the best meals we've had. Sometimes it's the unplanned nights that turn out to be the best. The Survey Co immediately makes... More

Called in with some work colleagues for dinner. I was struck by the very cool decor, kind of industrial cellar, and also by the friendly staff. We ordered some starters to share pork belly taco which were excellent and chicken wings which were average. Washed it down with an excellent bottle of prosecco. I had the special which was a...

This is one of my favourites places to escape to for drinks and dinner with friends - it is tucked away in the middle of the city, down the lane and the minute you slide the door you are welcomed. I love it that you don't have to sit at a table, but can eat at the bar. Usually start... More

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
