“Try this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Always excellent service, wine and food. This Brisbane CBD restaurant is a bit hidden away, but once discovered it becomes a regular destination. Seating inside is fine, but outside looking over the river on a sunny day is not to be missed

“Upscale”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Recommended to us by a local couple more so due the outdoor patio and view. Service was slow at first but attentive after ordering. A costly but enjoyable experience ... we just had one appetizer and two cocktails totaling $83.

“Great value and brilliant view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This restaurant is well appointed and with a scenic view of the Brisbane River and Story Bridge and adjacent areas at which the highlight used to be dinner whilst watching the then annual Riverfire " F111 dump and burn" but let that not deter you as the venue is more private and enjoyable than that offered only a short distance away.
