New owners - New Fit Out - Not Freestyle Anymore

We went back to Freestyle after not having been there for a while. The first thing we noticed was that the nice coach sitting that was along the window wasn't there anymore; just boring tables and chairs inside the whole place. Looked at the menu, and it was completely different. A lot smaller and... read more

Having not been to freestyles in some years I was a little concerned it would not live up to my expectations from previous fabulous visits. While I was disappointed to see the menu is indeed smaller and less diverse than previously (and is not what is listed on the website) it was still very good and I was pleased to... More

We had 2 vegans with us and 3 eat anything friends. We walked all the way from the city to the Valley after we had read the menu online http://www.freestyletout.com.au/emporium/menus/regular-menu/ and had been recommended by one of the friends who ate anything but had been there with vegans. After being seated then another staff member asking if we wanted any... More

i had my first experience at freestyle on Saturday evening. We had a party of five, bought six share plates off the menu and shared them. Every plate was excellent, both taste and amount. A very diverse menu. After sharing plates we all had a dessert each which everyone liked. I'd definitely go back here again. Just the right amount... More

My wife and I just tried this place, worst desert ever, something bought from Woolworths or Coles would have been better. Save your money and the disappointment and go anywhere else.

Lovely, boutique style restaurant hidden in the Emporium. Very friendly staff, willing to discuss the menu with you. Service very quick. Presentation is excellent. Quality of food is superb. They are doing a bit of a renovation but will opened soon (i went there again around the 10th of Jan 2015), so it's not long before they are back in... More

This used to be the absolute 'go to' place for the most amazing desserts in Brisbane. It still is in terms of menu. The selection of desserts on offer is second to none. They have a really wide selection of everything from ice-cream sundaes, to sweet dumplings; macadamia and caramel slice, to traditional puddings such as bread and butter pudding... More

We had actually eaten at another restaurant but my daughter took me to this restaurant for dessert. Looking at the whole menu it looked really good but there was quite a selection for desserts plus the specials for dessert. We chose the sticky date pudding and the flourless chocolate cake. Both the desserts were beautifully presented and were scrumptious. I... More
