Java Queen
Restaurant details
Reviewed July 15, 2011

Three of us visited on a Wednesday night in June 2011. The waitress was new and unable to answer some of our questions about the dishes, but she went directly to the chef and relayed his responses. There was a Spanish guitarist seated in the middle of the restaurant whose music was unobtrusive but helped to create a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. There is also a nice view of the CBD from some seats.

Java Queen offers tapas style dishes or the more traditional entree and main course. The cuisine ranges from modern Australian, Asian-fusion to Indonesian. We chose mains of pork belly, seafood curry and beef rendang and shared a side of veges. Each of us enjoyed our courses, there was no 'restaurant envy' i.e. limited tasting or coveting of each others' dishes. We were all happy with what we ordered. The mains are priced around $22 AUD which is very reasonable for the quality of the food.

This is the 2nd time we've been to Java Queen in 2011 and we visited on a couple of occasions last year. Based on all visits, desserts are not the restaurant's strong point (except the sticky date pudding. Other desserts had a 'twist' that didn't appeal to our palates. Perhaps we prefer more traditional sweet tastes) but the savoury flavours are worth the trip.

Rang 3 times, left 3 voice messages, didn't hear back. Went elsewhere so can't give rating on food, value,service, or atmosphere. Wanted to go ad we'd heard it was good.

Tucked away up the hill a bit from Southbank, was well worth the climb. It's BYO so make sure you swing by a bottle shop first if you want wine etc. The night we went there was a large birthday party happening but it was still good. The service is excellent - friendly without being in-your-face.
The menu is small but varied with all regular entrees at $16 and mains at $24. There are also some good specials for a bit extra.
They've put the prices up in the last month which is a shame - maybe they realised how popular they were getting. (Not sure if the entrees are worth $16).

Lunch menu remains great value with all meals at $9.90.
