“Unpleasant Experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Be very careful of this hotel, they publish a dress code and change it at Managers discretion. However, the Manager refuses to discuss and hides behind really unpleasant thugs they hire as doormen. After 10pm last night they refused to let anyone in wearing dress shorts, even though their web site says DRESS SHORTS ACCEPTABLE. Tommy Hilfiger and Boss was not good enough, even though had we arrived half an hour earlier we would have been allowed in, and there were several people inside in shorts who had gained entry before 9.30 and allowed to stay, makes no sense. Eether dress shorts are acceptable or not!!!!
We are visitors from Belgium and when we rang to check the dress code were told by staff to read it on the web as they were busy. Only one of our group had dress shorts and all had closed shoes and designer clothing. Another couple arrived shortly after, he was expensively dressed and looked very nice but was also refused as he had Tommy Hilfiger knee length shorts.
The Manager refused to meet us to discuss, prefering instead to refer to 'Management discretion' and being allowed to change the dress code as they see fit. We had just driven over one hour to go there. Never again........so its interesting place to go if you want to be forced to dress nicely bevause you arrive at 10pm but mix with people who were there one hour before and are in shorts. By the way ill fitting cheap jeans and runners are acceptable, what a joke!

“Superb Food, Excellent Service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

We held a family 21st birthday meal here in October 2013 and I must say we were highly delighted with the quality of food and the standard of service that was provided. It turned out to be a superb evening out and one that we shall not forget. I would guarantee that Mon Komo will be on our wish list next time we are in Queensland from the UK.

“Shameful,overpriced food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Had a party of people choining together for a meal.
Yes the ambiance is good and the service by Matt was terrific,but the meals were a rip-off. All of the mains were presented with cheap and nasty accominates and the size of the dishes were extremely small.They were tastless and presented unprofessionaly.I and my party of friends are extremely disappointed,because not only are the meal a total rip-off but the price of the drink are rediculasly high.
We are locals to the area(Redcliffe) and will not be recommending Mon Komo to anyone.

Hi Leonie, Thanks for your feedback in relation to your experience at the hotel. It is disappointing to hear your comments in regard to the hotel and please be assured these have been passed on to the management team.

In regard to the pricing, we have done our research and have based pricing on current market values and at the same time tried to cater for a variety of ranges with an a la carte menu and bar menu available. We do have regular drink specials within the hotel also which you are welcome to take advantage of.

I hope we can welcome you back to the hotel in the near future.

“Suprising good place, friendly service, good music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

I had not been here before.
Its modern light and breezy.
A reasonable bistro type menu, busy bar and we went on a Friday when they had a good popular band called Benjam on.
I had a seafood past, my friend had a fish dish.
I really liked the ambience and feel of the place.
