We have not eaten out regularly in recent years because of our young family. But when we do we usually go to Continental Cafe. Unfortunately the owner must have changed. Twice I have been this year and twice I have been disappointed. I aways relied on Continental to serve up, discrete service, fine wine, interesting but reliable french cuisine at... More

Continental provides excellent service, atmosphere and food every time. I had my rehearsal dinner for our wedding in their function room and it was brilliant. The hosts and servers are always pleasant and the chefs never disappoint. It is a popular date night out, and with good reason. Love it, and highly recommend it for anyone in the Brisbane area!...

Our day began checking out the newly refurbished New Farm Cinemas on a Sunday with a lunch to follow. How disappointed we were to see most of the local cafes closed. Luckily we stumbled on the Continental Cafe. The staff and atmosphere were charming. The menu was very continental with lots of variety. The food was well presented although some... More

My first time at the Continental Cafe was so far beyond my expectations it's hard to describe how amazing the food really is! Don't let the location or exterior put you off, the food is to die for! We had the lambs brains for our entree and were immediately in love with this place. I have never tasted anything like... More

Have been coming here for years fairly regularly. The quality of the service and food is always reliably good. Recently very much enjoyed the Coq au Vin and Tarte Tartin.

Continental Cafe is an old haunt of ours that we have neglected for a while. We revisited recently and were quite disappointed. The room is the same and the service was friendly and attentive but the food was ordinary. My wife had lambs fry which was dry and unappetising. I had pork neck, also dry and uninteresting. This is a... More

Four of us went for dinner for my son's 21st recently. The food is delicious, comfort food. Portions are large, so only one of us managed to have room for desert, which was a shame as the deserts are excellent. Two of us had the liver and bacon, it was really tasty, lovely gravy and mash potatoes. Perfect. Husband had... More

What a delight it is to return to a place that you haven't been for a while and find it as good as or even better than remembered. Such a treat. A cold Friday evening after some great fun comedy at Powerhouse, we dropped by on spec and were lucky to get a table. We were much in need of... More
