“Our tapas were really done well”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Excellent position, right in the middle of James Street, and right downstairs from the Centro Cinema. It is easy to get parking around the back of the James Street Markets on the street. We had four 'share plates' between myself and my husband and that was just enough for us. The share plates are really just tapas that is enough to serve two. Our share plates were cold spiced Moreton Bay Bug; Barramundi Fish Cakes, Crispy Spring Rolls and House Fries. All were so fresh and very nicely spiced. I also had dessert and coffee. The dessert was a fresh berry mille feuille which was absolutely amazing. The coffee was pretty good too. Definitely going back here again. The staff were friendly and service was quick too.

“Heart of James Street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We have been here many times as it is next door to our favorite cinema. The food is excellent quality or you can just have coffee or a cocktail.

“Not interested in complaint!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

My wife and I stopped here for a mid afternoon snack. She ordered chicken skewers/kebabs which she found delicious. I ordered crisp potatoes in a spicy salsa sauce. The potatoes weren't crisp and the salsa had no spiciness that I could detect. On completion the waiter asked how the meal was, and I told him the aforementioned. He went off, and we saw him talking to the chef, and the next thing was he came with the bill for the full amount, with no explanation or apology!
If you are going to ask how the meal was, then some action should result if the customer is not satisfied!

“Lovely staff, excellent food, way better than James St Bistro next door.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

The staff are lovely, attentive and will remember you when you come back.

The food is excellent and service is efficient.

Having been here and next door I can tell you, choose Luxe, next door sucks in comparison.
