Wow, when you walk in, it's grand!! You're met with a sweeping staircase and grandeur. Mood lighting, large floor space and plenty of tables. Out the back is the restaurant which is also large with indoor or outdoor undercover semi enclosed eating space. Food was exceptional. Plenty of Gluten Free options. Will definitely be back here.

I had the orange roughy (pearl couscous, roast veg, macadamia) for $20 and my husband had the beef brisket nachos for $17. Absolutely the best quality and value that I have had at those prices. Beautifully cooked, and the flavours were perfect. I would recommend this place to anyone.

My wife and I ate at The Transcontinental last night. The beer selection is very wide ranging and I found a number of decent brews to keep me cool. My wife was more than happy with the house Sav Blanc she drank. Feeling in the mood for simple but comforting food, we both selected the lamb sausages from the ample... More

Went to The Trans for a few drinks and lunch. The beer was cold and plentiful, served by bar staff who knew their business. In spite of the pre-Christmas crowd staff found us a table. Lunch was excellent, served hot. Food staff are friendly and happy. We'll be back.

Since this place closes relatively early (which is fairly common in the Brisbane CBD) it took me a while to get around to visiting this pub, namely because it would either be too early, or too late. However when I was walking past on my last night in Brisbane I discovered that it was open, so we stepped in for... More

took the whole family here for lunch. Staff were great. Food was good quality pub food and quick out. We enjoyed the atmosphere and it is worth the walk. Across the road from Roma Street so great position if you don't want to drive

A real caesar salad with a runny cooled poached egg - can recommend it also their burgers are pretty good too! The service is efficient and friendly. We had sparkling water and this was served in large glasses - good value for money.

Good food, waited a little bit for it but they were flat out!! Worth the wait anyway! Good value for money, disappointed on Sunday though as we went back for seconds & it wasn't open, so beware!!! Helpful staff, very clean throughout! Bottle shop attached also , so could be handy!

The title pretty much says it all, we took advantage of having a room in the new Meriton mere steps away, to really let our hair down with a large party of friends and make a night of it. The live band played alternative rock covers and were really decent. The blokes in our party took advantage of the extensive... More

I don't seem to get to Brisbane very often, even though i only live on the Gold Coast, so i finally decided to have a good night out there. A group of 5 of my girlfriends and I booked some accommodation right in the city. We asked the front desk for a recommendation on where to go for some warm... More
