Amazing View, Amazing Food

Customs House is simply stunning. The staff are fantastic, the views of the Brisbane river and Story Bridge are spectacular, and the food is amazing. Seating is outside with large heaters provided to keep you toasty and warm. Wish I had room for dessert as they looked so yum, maybe next time!!

We attended a wedding and a reception at Customs House and everything was sensational. The food was outstanding, the service ultra-professional and a great time was had by all.

The service here is excellent. I found the soft shell crab to be very nice. The fish in my "fish of the day" main was quite small and overwhelmed with the pesto.

lovely location in an heritage, well-restored building on the Brisbane River and in the city center. Sunday brunch/lunch is especially good. one can choose to sit outside and overlook the river or inside in a large but often quiet room. Food is very good and the service pleasant.

The choice was difficult. The building is elegant and historical. A... More

An incredible setting and an incredible view of the Story Bridge. We sat outside where heat lamps are available. The service was extremely friendly and the staff were very attentive.

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.
