Great staff - average deserts

We used to love the deserts at Freestyle but the staff were a bit average. Now, the staff are amazing but the deserts are average! I think they have the easier thing to improve with the deserts as long as they listen to their customers. I'm not sure what ice cream the old owners used in their... read more

Freestyle Tout was chosen for breakfast on Saturday and that was my first mistake. Initially I was impressed by the fit out and being a lone diner the small tables facing to the street made me feel less obvious. A waiter promptly attended my table dropping off the menu and taking a coffee order - a good start! However it... More

Hands down, this the best 'dessert' restaurant to try in Brisbane. I am aware that they sell main meals however we've always visited 'Freestylers' as we like to call it after we've had a meal elsewhere. Many of the desserts are too big to eat on your own - perfect for sharing. Be prepared to line up on a Friday... More

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 you could notice in the actual... 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
