Lunch at qpac cafe before Chicago matinee. We’ve eaten here many times before but this time it was very poor. Steak sandwich was so tough it was almost impossible to cut let alone chew. First knife blunt, next knife sharper but still couldn’t cut the steak. The base of the bread (Turkish bread.) was almost tougher than the steak. Pathetic small amount of relish and small amount of good chips. The other meal was a n Asian style prawn salad with 6 scrawny prawns (probably imported) and a salad of lots of rice noodles and a few strings of carrot. Good coffee didn’t really compensate for a terrible meal. We envied the couple sitting at a nearby table who had brought their own sandwiches, a thermos of coffee, and a Mars bar each. That’s our plan for next time.

The chicken schnitzel was very good. Gluten free options were a disgrace! How hard is it to pop a jacket potato in the microwave as a substitute for chips? Seriously, show some compassion! Coeliacs get hungry too! Salad just doesn’t complete a meal by itself.

None of the food is appealing. We wanted a light lunch before seeing Chicago so the three of us chose chicken skewers. BIG MISTAKE!!! Hardly cooked, very pink inside so that we feared for our health! Set on a tiny salad of leaves & a couple of cherry tomatoes. This cafe always has very mediocre food but is marginally better than the cafe on the other side of the walkway. WE WON'T BE BACK. I mentioned this to a couple of others yesterday and they said they would never ever eat there. There are lots of good places in Grey Street or Fish Lane
QPAC food is just a tourist trap!!!!!

We were at the Bistro recently prior to swing a show and ordered lunch for four
Considering that each of us had a different meal each of us thought that the food was excellent, apart from my chips that were like warm, instantly replaced with piping hot ones.

The salmon was cooked to perfection as was my steak.

Good value would recommend the Bistro.
