Fortunately it was a family catchup as the the delivery was exceptionally slow. What was finally delivered was tasty , good coffee. When busy I would suggest they need an extra hand / chiefs the kitchen

Last time I went for dinner and was disappointed, but this time, for lunch, we were more careful what we chose. Out of the 4 dishes 3 were very good and one (duck salad, the meat was a bit tough)slightly disappointing, although the taste was very nice. The others had pasta with bacon, prawns and white sauce, a Greek salad... More

Been going there for years, before a flight where you know the airport food joint cut it, this week the food was the best we had. One of those things you don't think to write a review somewhere you always go, but my Vagelis mince with eggs and bacon was worth the effort to write.

We've been to Vagelis twice recently and both times we were very happy with our dinner choices. On our first visit we had the chicken and mushroom risotto and the lamb shanks. These are both enormous meals and very good value for the price. The next time we had the carbonara and the mousakka. Both of these meals were smaller... More

We had brunch here on Sunday morning. Place was crowded - took a while for the food to come, but it was nice once it arrived. The wait staff were friendly. We ordered plain toast for our daughter who had recently been sick -but that took 45 minutes to arrive - it seems the cook kept doing a buttered one... More

We had limited time and waited 55 minutes for 3 toasted sandwiches and bruschetta. It took 15 minutes for a bottle of water to land on our table. Terribly slow. On the upside the staff were friendly & the manager gave us a meal voucher due to the slow service. The food was good enough, & hopefully when we return... More

Have been here many times before. Never disappointed. Staff friendly and helpful. Knew all about the menu and specials. Tables well presented and clean. No lipstick marks on the wine glasses. Could have had better background music. Should check the general age of clients before selecting some songs.

Passed this place so many times but today decided to stop and try the cuisine. This place has quite a nice setting (no views) but inside it is like being in a vibrant street cafe. The staff were really professional but friendly and our lady knew the lunch menu backwards! The Shiraz wine was superb and they served up good... More

Have eaten here on past visits to Brisbane, but usually breakfast which is very good. This time we stopped for dinner and while it was OK it didn't really stand out. Service was fine but the place is a little over priced for the quality of the food.

Manager was rude, threw the menus on the table and didn't say a word when seating me or to see if I wanted a coffee while waiting for my friend to arrive! He then got our order wrong and had the audacity to act shocked and somewhat bemused when we answered his question as to 'how we went'. Obviously he... More
