Grecian?

This large restaurant offers some modern cuisine in a casual atmosphere. Food is OK, but my salmon was overcooked and my partner ordered a soup, after his main meal, because he was still hungry. I didn't find it really Greek, nor really good

After 5 years since my last visit to Brisbane, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the relaxed atmosphere, excellent staff and great food that kept me coming back years ago are still what I remembered. We enjoyed it so much we came back again a few days later. Even though the staff faces (and even the ownership) have changed,... More

This is one of our favourite places for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. We had breakfast yesterday while out walking our dog and were pleasantly surprised with the new menu. Both of us ordered the Smoked salmon, poached eggs, potato rostti with asparagus. With added avocado and it was delicious. Our food arrived very fast with the restaurant being half full... More

Three of us recently dined at Vagelis. We dined outside and it was very pleasant on a hot Brisbane Summer evening. Not that you get any choice, as it is all outdoors but well undercover. If it had been any hotter or during the day, we would have chosen airconditioned comfort elsewhere. There are little tables down the stairs on... More

My wife and I again visited. Tonight we enjoyed the Mediterranean Salad with Cajun Chicken. Delicious! There was plenty of variety in the salad and the dressing was a perfect complement. Would highly recommend with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. Can't wait to revisit! Service with Manager Andrea was polished and relaxed. He is an excellent asset to the business.

My sister was recently married in Brisbane and the morning after she organised a breakfast for roughly 15 people, she asked while booking how we could pay and asked if we could do separate transactions - to which one of the girls said yes. Fantastic food but when we went to pay we were treated so badly as the gentleman... More

I came here for breakfast a few months back and was given burnt sausages and bacon, but decided to give this place another go. My mum and I came for a nice breakfast this morning and was left disappointed. Firstly, the male waiter did not greet us nor smile- he almost looked annoyed, and was not attentive. That put us...
