Fantastic. Captured immediately by the outstanding service at drinks at the bar; didn't get the martini right the first try and without hesitation fixed it and produced the prefect one. We had the Javier's table experience which worked really well for us. $89 per person is a good price. Wonderful wine list and it all added up to a wonderful... More

I visited once before in December 2016. On both occasions I was really impressed with the food wine and service. Catalan influenced. Delicious fish fillets with crispy pork cheeks. Very good duck and sweet red cabbage. Good Romanesque sauce with grilled peppers. Excellent veges all round - flat green beans and delicious deep fried Brussel sprouts that even the kids... More

Everything was impressive and tasty with a great variety to taste.This was a top line experience with good... More

We had a great time at Moda, we arrived early and were still seated and attended to regardless. The service was great, everyone who served us, was polite and cheerful. We had the chefs table experience and although maybe not everything we would have picked, we tried a few things we wouldn't have before. Overall a great night, entrees were... More

Wow! Its not often I get a bad call from Tripadvisor, but this one was just too much. After reading the other reviews, I am left wondering if the other reviewers dined at a different restaurant. Pros: Nice setting and reasonable service. Cons: Everything else! We had the soggy tempura for entree, along with the dry and uninspiring pork belly.... More

Very nice restaurant for summer nights. The food is great, and the service from the staff is also excellent. Mid-range/fine dining style restaurant.

We've been to Moda several times over the last 5 years and each time is great. We had the chef's selection this week and were very happy at the end of the night. Consistently tasty food over the years. Great dining experience.

This restaurant is a lovely little oasis in the centre of Brisbane CBD. It's a courtyard area, which is lovely in Brisbane in Spring/Summer/Autumn. We had an early dinner here one evening after attending a seminar in the city. After perusing the menu we decided on Javier's Table, which is a multi-course dinner with all courses decided by Javier on... More

I was tempted to use the word perfection.... But people are human so not every dining experience is going to hit the mark. I've lived in Brisbane since 1981 - ive eaten in many restaurants in Brisbane - this is now my number one. But will it be consistently good? I hope so. We had the chefs special - milk... More
