“So very let down.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

I went to the Beer garden with high expectations as everyone had told me how amazing it is. I was very let down. Everything was over priced, and every time we asked for pints we were handed pots with the bar tender was trying to convince us they were pints. I did not have a good time.

“with great food, good service, in an informal setting it is more...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

With great food, good service, in an informal setting it is more than your average beer garden. With a wide range of Australian and Asian fusion, as well as some interesting tapas-like dishes, this is a good place for informal business meetings during the week. Alternatively, the restaurant is a great place to just hang out on a nice day. The beer selection is not actually diverse, and limited to mostly flavors of Leffe and some local favorites on tap. I would definitely recommend the restaurant for a casual (but not inexpensive) dinner.

“A popular place to drink Belgian beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2009

This bar specializes in Belgian beers. You can order from dozens of different types of imported beers. (Try the Hoegarden Grand Cru) They offer good, authentic buy a bit pricey Belgian food.

This is a very popular place on the weekends in the summer time. You'll find a couple hundred people drinking beer in their large outdoor garden. It's probably Australia's closest thing to a Munich beer garden.

People dress casual.

Pause for a look and it's nice architecture to sit for a meal on a cold day.

There is also a sister bar at the ground floor of the Eureka tower. That bar mainly attracts the corporate types who work at Southbank.
