This place does feel like you're in one of these alley ways in Melbourne! Great ambience, attentive (but not super friendly) staff and a good selection of very yummy dishes and drinks. Both wines and cocktails are a little off the beaten path, which I find refreshing. Went for the beef cheeks with a glass of Argentinian Malbec, which was... More

A great restaurant down a lane way - I could almost be in Melbourne! Great looking restaurant an curious and eclectic menu and an interesting wine list. I will definitely return. My advice be a bit adventurous and try different things.

As a business traveler, finding authentic food from caring, skilled locals is small hobby of mine. And I really hit paydirt with this Brisbane find. Hidden on a small alleyway and in a former warehouse (ot the like), the Survey Company displays itself as a sepia-inspired, 40's LA speakeasy. But, the food and drink are the real showstoppers here. I... More

I love this lane way. In the late 80ies, ah Im here again - a great sense of nostalgia as I entered. The two dinner time settings. A calm welcome and we enjoyed our bearded waiter, beautifully passionate about his work. The wine list, simple, elegant with enough grunt to entertain a large range of moods and tastebuds. Tick tick... More

First of all the food, and you can read other reviews for recommendations, was terrific. We tried 9 different dishes and they were great. The location/venue was great - if trendy laneway eateries are where you want to be seen or say you were at. Fine. The problem is - the perennial thing which separates good dining experiences from Amazing... More

Worth the visit. We were looking for somewhere a little different but up market. Had heard good reviews so thought we'd give it a go & the experience matched the expectation. Don't be worried about the laneway it is located in as there are a few other restaurants, bars & a hotel entry so not a safety concern being in... More

The location is unusual - down a narrow lane in the Brisbane CBD - but worth taking the risk. Once you're inside you could be a million miles from the city. I have been there many times and I'll keep going back. The menu keeps the old favourites but changes from time to time. My favourite for a small group... More
