Fantastic view on the river and Story Bridges, attentive and relaxed staff and great food. The cherry and chocolate tart was to die for.

We had a great lunch at the Customs House for my sons graduation from uni. The food was excellent. Very Tasty and nicely presented. Staff were friendly. The view of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge was wonderful. A nice touch at the end of the meal was when my sons dessert was served with ''Congratulations'' written on the plate.... More

An outstanding venue for a meal; in our case lunch. The atmosphere and view of the river sets the scene. The service is very professional and the food is amazing. A good wine list rounds out what was a great experience. Can't wait to return.

We eat there occasionally and it is usually good. A recent lunch was very poor. The fish of the day was snapper but it was tough, dry and tasteless. Seemed to have been frozen and very badly cooked. Maybe the chef was on holiday

We enjoyed the location, the cocktails, the attentiveness (attention to detail) of the staff, and the food...especially for the youngest members of the family. Upon entry, we were encouraged to explore the building and enjoy the general historical ambiance. A terrific and yet tranquil location on the Brisbane River.

The cuisine served at the main dining room is just out of this world. Fine selection of French oriented cooking with a fusion touch in a very historical environment. Excellent service and has an excellent wine list to choose from. Highly recommended

Our work Christmas party was held at the restaurant as a last minute change of venue but what an inspired choice it was. There were three choices for three courses set menu. The quality of all the food options was the best I have had in a Brisbane restaurant in a long time. The wait staff were friendly and very... More
