Firstly, we must say that the food was delicious but, at the prices charged, you would expect nothing less. Great location and setting. We had a table outside and shortly after arriving we noticed an unusual foul smell coming and going. The waitress ( a lovely person) told us it was probably coming from the river but as the very...

Ordered a bottle of wine to be delivered to the table for our parents' 45th Wedding Anniversary on behalf of the family. They were happy to take our money, but didn't deliver the bottle to the table at all. I wonder if we'd ever have found out, if we didn't ask our parents.

For what is billed as a silver service restaurant and charges accordingly this venue was far from what was expected. Attended for a special occasion and left quite dejected, the onion soup was water with a couple of slices of onion floating in it and the slow cooked lamb shoulder took me back to days of youth with boiled mutton....

A group of six ladies celebrated with a High Tea at the Customs House on Sunday 28 September. We were taken to a lovely table overlooking the story bridge. Summer had arrived and our table was not under cover. Unfortunately we had to leave the view and take a table inside. This was far more comfortable and also had a... More

This restaurant is situated in the Brisbane city centre (Anne St) with the Brisbane River on its flank. The building is historical and as the name suggests, it was once the Customs House for in and outgoing shipping in Brisbane. The Building is a quant sandstone one and often chosen as a Wedding venue as the main room is spacious... More

This is my fourth visit for Sunday Breakfast at the Customs House. The extended breakfast hours make it a good choice if you've had a late one the night before! If you can get an outside table then you would find it difficult to beat the setting - even though I lived in Brisbane for 3 years I still find... More

We ate here in a big group and it was really well organised. Sometime places struggle to cope with big groups but at this place, nothing was a problem. I have recently gone gluten free and that was easily accommodated with even a special bread roll made especially for me. I had the barramundi and it was lovely - and... More

The views are breathtaking and it is such a tranquil setting. A great place to catch up with friends without the noise usually experienced in other venues. Service is good and there are a range of choices on the brunch menu.
