Clever food in the river city

A group of us had the five course Omnivore degustation menu with matching wines. Several interesting snacks served prior to the meal, the fried ducks tongue lacked a distinct flavour to work with but the mushroom consommé was very tasty. Of the mains the Mulloway was a real stand out, lovely piece... read more

I can't speak highly enough of this place- enjoyed a lovely elderton wine dinner there and not only was the wine amazing (of course it was anything elderton is always amazing) but the food matched wonderfully. I am quite sure though that if I was to go back and order from the normal menu- I would still be blown away.... More

We attended a wine dinner last night and the restaurant was sensational. The staff were attentive and provided a very professional level of service. Every meal had something unique about the dish, but the pork belly was to die for. Everyone enjoyed the food and they were matched well with the wines on offer. Been before, will be back again!

I was a guest at a small private function today. It occurred to me later that I left without thanking the Waiter. He was a complete professional and took great care of us. Please pass on our thanks. The food was also fantastic. I'll be back.

We enjoy degustations and this was a great one. Three of us had the 8 course omnivore, and with the snacks (mushroom soup, artichoke canapé and smoked barramundi crisp) and the pre- dessert it was actually really 11 courses. All were superb, but the onion course, mulloway, and mandarin honeycomb dessert stood out for us. I also had the matched... More

Ate there recently with some business colleagues and found the place to be nice and welcoming. We had a set menu and whilst i was not a fan of the chicken liver pate, my colleauge loved it. He also said the smoked barramundi was tasty and waswell balanced by the fennel and horseradish cremem fraiche. I had the Wagyu sirloin... More

A great choice in Brisbane's Central Business District. We took over the restaurant to entertain 40 customers. The food and ambiance was sophisticated while the earnest customer service kept everyone at ease and having a good time. The smoked barramundi starter was a particular highlight.

A stylish modern restaurant. Degustation mode is grazing and your tastebuds are taken on a journey through various flavours. 5 course omni Degustation was enough for us ... once you include the four surprise tastings and bread.

The entire experience was fantastic from the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left when it was raining and were even offered an umbrella. Although expensive well worth the splurge for special occasions. Just divine.

My partner and I celebrated an anniversary here and had a wonderful night. We each had eight courses, he the Omni and I the vegan. My partner had the accompanying wines which he very much enjoyed and I had a few cocktails. We were happily surprised to find it more like 13 courses with two snacks, bread, and two palate... More
