Second visit with family

This was our second visit to the restaurant and it was a family gathering so there were 11 of us. The service was once again excellent considering we all arrived at scattered times. Unfortunately my dish was way too hot to the point that I could not continue eating it. The menu however, did state... read more

Beautiful spot to sit in the sun and enjoy brunch. The coffee, smoothies and breakfast's were delicious. The service was great and pet friendly which is also a big bonus!

What a refreshing dining venue! Christmas and her team have proven that good tasting food and excellent service need not cost an arm and a leg. In an area overcrowded with food outlets, Vangelis has been a signal success.

Had a nice steak meal. It was a quiet Monday night. But it did take a while. I think it was expensive for what we got. I probably would not go back.

We chose this restaurant on a recent trip to Brisbane as the menu read well and it had a nice atmosphere. The quality of the food was very disappointing and service in a restaurant that had very few occupants at the time was unacceptable. The garlic bread was very dry with no hint of any garlic butter at all. I... More

Set in a trendy little area, this cafe is a great. The breakfast meals are quite a decent serve. I had the eggs benedict with salmon, and was quite full afterwards. The service, whilst very friendly, was a little slow, but we were no in a hurry, so who's complaining, plus they were quite busy :) Overall, I really enjoyed... More

I ordered a steak, what could be more simple? Well, the meat was cut badly, it was tough and inconsistently cooked through. The vegetables were raw. Even the post mix Coke was flat. The room was cold despite the availability of gas heating. I felt that the overall experience was poor. I won't be back.

THANK GOODNESS. 30minutes after we ordered , we were presented with some fresh fruit skewers and informed there would be a delay with out meals!!!! We noticed that many... More

I've eaten here twice and on both occasions really enjoyed the food. The menu is modern and will suit those with a pallet for well prepared food with a European atmosphere. The service is a little inconsistent....but always courteous. Mains are a reasonable size priced ~ $30 mark.
