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.

Brilliant food, with excellent service at a historical building right on the river in the city centre. A perfect location.

We can't thank the staff of the Customs House enough for helping to make my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary so special. We were a table of nine, including one seven year old and one gluten free diet and were made to feel very special from the moment we arrived. My parents were offered complimentary bubbly on arrival which was a... More

We went there for a breakfast as part of a weekend staying in cbd for my sister's birthday. Customs House always has had a beautiful setting right on the river, very elegant building and extremely pleasant, friendly staff. It was a bit cool outside but then we chose to sit out there. We have been for dinner and drinks before... More

Fine affordable dining in one of the most historically rich and majestically picturesque Brisbane locations. Service and food equally matched the quality of the location.

I dined here for the first time and was very impressed with what this restaurant has to offer. From fine food to an amazing panorama of Brisbane's Story Bridge and Kangaroo Point Cliffs, this restaurant is well worth a visit. We came to the restaurant for a birthday celebration, and were very warmly greeted by the staff before being given... More

I dined here on a Saturday night for a special occasion, wanting a more upmarket dining experience. The building is absolutely stunning and, eating out in the rear terrace, you have amazing views of the Brisbane river and the Storey Bridge lit up in the night sky. I would recommend booking online or phoning in advance to reserve a table... More

A small group of us gathered at Customs House for their High Tea. The food was scrumptious, and the service spot on. The tables were beautifully set. We sat out on the terrace and although it was a bit breezy we enjoyed the wonderful views. The staff lit the heaters for us and this took the chill off us. We... More

We were looking for a place to share a High Tea with 30 friends and family . After looking at hotels we found the Customs house. An historical building on a bend overlooking the Brisbane River. All the arrangements for the High Tea were done via Email as we live overseas and everything was perfect on the day. The staff... More

I organised dinner for a group of 20 people for work. The service and efficiency of the staff was great and the food was delicious. I had been concerned the portion sizes would be small but they were just right. It is a little pricy but ideal for a special dinner.
