Great for a drink

Happy hour saw me having a glass of very nice red wine for only six dollars. The drink list is massive, especially for rum. Staff very pleasant and helpful. I would very much like to come here for lunch or dinner.

Right on the Brisbane River at Portside, this restaurant is Istanbul in Brisbane. The menu is diverse and has something for everyone. We had several small plates to share which was a great way to taste as much as possible. Service great and price moderate

A friend had her 40th birthday here and booked part of the restaurant opening to the river. The Canapés were delicious and the ' sour cherry?' cocktail was unique in taste.

Booking was made online with quick and responsive reply from management. There are two seatings. 6 and 8. We were quickly seated and orders taken in a good amount of time.

One of the worst experiences I've had on New year's eve. Cocktail bartenders who think they are flash but have no discernible skill whatsoever and rude to first-time customers - of which I was one - and bouncers... what were the security guards doing??? They didn't even intervene or were nowhere to be seen when there was a tussle on... More
