I'm from the U.K. and spending final morning in Brisbane before flight home and looking for somewhere to eat. Came across here. I really felt like a cooked breakfast but it had gone past 11 a.m. On discovering that I would have liked the breakfast the manager said he would accommodate my sister and I. The breakfast was freshly cooked... More

We had the $40 2-course lunch (which includes a glass of wine but being non-drinkers we swapped that for sparkling water). The food was good quality and satisfying. Service was generally good. Nice view of the river.

When I worked in the city the Customs House Restaurant was very accessible and one of our preferred eateries. Service was and is first class and the menu continues to offer a choice for everyone.

It makes a pleasant change to the slicker modern venues nearby. The food is very good and the ambience is great - as well, it is so close to hotels on the mall.

My partner and I went here for breakfast on my birthday. We'd been for dinner which was outstanding but knew breakfast was a bit more laid back. We had a quaint setting looking over the Brisbane river and up at the story bridge which was beautiful. We had some coffees and a delicious strawberry and yogurt start. For the main... More

A good experience. The Signature lunch has good choices and is a slightly less expensive option. Staff are friendly and attentive. The views across the river to the Story Bridge are excellent.

I booked for 10 ladies to attend high tea for a pre wedding treat. It was $55 per head. We received 2 X tiered platters, orange juice, champers and a gift box with 2 chocs. 10 ladies shared a small plate of sandwiches, 6 scones with jam and cream and an assortment of sweets. We asked for more sandwiches and... More
