Elegance and location

Elegant dining with a gorgeous view of the Story Bridge. We took our family of 5 to celebrate a birthday. Just loved the view looking over the river. We have also entertained friends from France there. It is a great place to showcase Brisbane.

Service is excellent. Food portions are relatively small, but it is delicious. Can't beat the views. And with so many bars around (where you can also dance to a nice beat), it is a good starting point for a night of fun.

A great spot to enjoy a Sunday Brunch and celebrate a birthday with friends. The outdoor terrace overlooks the Brisbane River and the Story Bridge. The food is delicious and the service very good. We were a table of ten and were waited on promptly. The place was busy so remember to book in advance.

My husband and I had dinner last night at Custom House, we cant say too much how perfect it was. Service impeccable, food exquisite, ambience absolutely beautiful in a heritage regal building, while enjoying the beautiful river views. Perfection.

Booked this place for my wife's birthday. Couldn't fault it. Even left a $20.00 tip which is unusual for me. Food was great and the service impeccable. The atmosphere was also a bonus with the table right alongside the river.

We decided to sit by the river at the beautiful Customs House for lunch for my son's 27th birthday. After reading about the fixed price lunch we felt it was worth a try. What an amazing meal. We chose the set price menu (plus a few extras). The meal was stunning, the fish cooked to perfection, the serving size was... More

Everything was simply perfect. We were treated like royalty and celebrated our anniversary in style. The view is incredible. I could sit there forever with a drink in hand. If you are looking for that special and romantic kind of night, here is your place right here.

After having enjoyed a lunch with a friend I wanted to take my partner back here one evening for our anniversary. It was a rainy night so we sat inside - all alone - in fierce aircon. Maybe our young waitress had received no training as she thrust the menus at us before we had even drawn out the chairs... More
