I was a guest at a wedding recepton held here and there was some very good aspects to the venue - firstly, the location, right on the Brisbane river is great as is the view from the restaurant. The staff were really friendly and did help make the occasion special. The pre dinner nibbles were up to the best standard I have ever experienced - they were all delicious. Entree was tasty (but small) and the meal itself was well presented and cooked beautifully. The only problems I found revolved around the fact I did not believe the venue to be ideally suited to a wedding. The sitting area is an L shaped affair and while the bride and groom are located in the corner and visible to all, the other guests only get to see half the attendance. In some ways this detracts from "everyone sharing". The dance area is round an mostly enclosed internal bar area, again not suited to full attendance by a wedding party and the sound system in mediocre at best. In summary, as a restaurant I could not fault the meals but as a wedding venue (or a venue for large numbers in a single party) I did find the location wanting.
