Stumbled upon this place while visiting Brisbane. The Newfarm and extended areas is and has been the cool kids section of Brisbane for many years. The Bitter Suite has great food in a relaxed comfortable environment. I was meeting a friend and we sat for quite a while catching up after 17 years and we didn't feel rushed or hurried... More

I have found It challenging to find a good coffee in Brisbane but I was pleased to be served a delicious breakfast and fantastic latte this morning at Bitter Suite. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was lovely. Will return next time I'm in the area.

Fantastic service, lovely set menu and great atmosphere. Four of us had a lovely NYE dinner. Our waitress was wonderful and the meal was paced perfectly. The food was delicious and a well planned with starters of chicken wings and bread followed by duck linguine, pork and lamb with fries. The perfect food to pair with drinks on NYE.

I went there to meet up with some lovely ladies, and we happened to be there on date night. The beer was delicious cold and fresh, with alot of the beers to be craft, which is fabulous on a hot day. We did order two of the cheese boards, which were for two but easily could have fed 3. I... More

Always a fine selection of beer here. The food is great too although the serves are small - which is fine but I think you need to know. The table serice and having to go to the bar is a bit weird depending upon where you sit, but the staff are always nice.

Visited Bitter Suite twice during my stay in Brisbane - once for dinner and once for brunch. Both were great. Half way through our dinner one of the outdoor lights started heavily smoking. Staff didn't seem concerned when we alerted them, saying its a common occurrence due to bugs. You'd think they'd get covers for the lights so diners wouldn't... More

Stopped here after a touristy cycle from South Bank to New Farm for a beer and lunch. Our super friendly French waitress made the experience extra nice so thanks to her! It's a beautiful setting with good food and I'd highly recommend it.

We attended a sit down birthday tapas style evening meal with a group of friends in this great little bar. The dining area was separated from the main bar area by a glass divider, so you still felt part of the bar atmosphere without being disturbed by the other patrons. A small range of different beers on tap (the Breakfast... More
