“Visit on a Sunday for a cracking deal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2011

We stopped in for a few beers and to watch the rugby (Aus v NZ) apart from a very annoying Kiwi girl clapping every 2 seconds we really liked the atmosphere and layout of the bar area. Drink prices are reasonable (For Australia) and they have a wide selection of beers. What really sealed the deal for us was the $10 special of a choice of chicken schnitzel and chips, battered fish and chips or rumo steak and chips. I went for the rump steak (My first steak in Oz) and if they are all as good as this one then I will be a happy man. Very beefy and tasty, on a par with some of the best I've eaten at home. When you consider a beer is about $5.80 then this meal cost $4.20 which is quite frankly the bargain of the century. Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Visit on a Sunday for the meal deal!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2010

Our recent Christmas party for work (56 people to attend) was booked at the Transcontinental. We were sent a menu for $25 a head and a wonderful menu it was with all the christmassy type foods. It was the menu that was the decider in making the booking. What we got on the day coudl only be described, at best, as horrible. It was nothing like what was on the menu previously sent. At no stage were we advised that the menu had been changed. When asked why we weren't getting what was on the menu we were informed that the chef had ignored the instructions for the menu. Hot food was cold and there were long delays in serving everyone present. There were apparently 3 or 4 christmas parties on the same day and there seemed to be only 2 wait staff to cover everything. Those poor girls worked extremely hard. I would have expected for a bit more care to be taken with such a large group. The drinks bill was waived and we weren't charged for 5 people who attended but what we got on the day was certainly not worth the $25 a head we were charged. Very disappointing and would not go back there again.

Located opposite the Transit center in Roma St, Brisbane City, the Transcontinental hotel is a great place to have dinner and or a few beers. The prices are great. On Friday Arvos you can get 4 coronas for 20 bucks. The steaks are $5.95 which includes decent salad, breadroll, you choice of sauce (pepper, diane, mushroom etc). They aren't the greatest steaks but for 6 bucks, it is possibly one of the best value meals in Brisie and certainly better then Mc rip off's. Healthier to.
