Visited this restaurant in July 2015. It was fantastic. The food was wonderful and the staff were superb. What else can I say. Will definitely return on next visit to Brisbane. A perfect evening had by 4 friends. Would we recommend? - YES.

Definitely a great venue for a special occasion. We celebrated an intimate wedding anniversary and were treated to lovely personal service, very friendly and relaxed staff, and a perfectly timed and executed 6 course degustation menu. It was a very quiet sunday evening, but I'm sure the restaurant gets busy on other nights. It was also fantastic value given that... More

We had been looking forward to dining here as it always seemed to get good reviews. We ended up choosing it as it is one of the few restaurants that has a chicken dish on the menu! My husband had the oysters for entree and they were the tiniest oysters ever seen, my scallops were fine although I find it... More

Great value meal and service. The staff who waited on our table were friendly and helpful. The food menu was varied and the food freshness quality was 1st class. Wine by the glass was good value and a large wine choice on offer. All the presentation and service was exceptional.

Reservation and table location were good, staff very friendly. The lamb rack, one of their signature dishes was served with salad and an Idaho potato - hardly fine dining. Added to that the lamb was well done instead of medium as ordered. The bill included a bottle of wine we had not ordered which put a damper on the whole... More

If Brisbane residents think this is an eatery just for in-house Royal on the Park guests then they are missing out on one of their city's true culinary delights. My wife and I dine there regularly and are always impressed by both the quality and variety of the food, not to mention the excellent service. Nothing is ever too much... More

Have had breakfast here each time we've stayed. The service and selection is very good. With the full breakfast seating you are looking over the street to the park. The staff are very helpful.
