“Relaxed Atmsophere - Great Food and Drinks - Superb Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We were staying at the Powerhouse Apartments in the same block as Bitter Suite, so it was really convenient to just stroll down. The menu has a good variety. My wife had the Confit Duck Salad and grilled whiting. I had the baby squid salad and the Sirloin. All very nicely prepared and cooked just to our liking. I love a beer or two and they have a great variety of funky locally made beers to choose from. The Billabong Pale Ale was my favourite. We'll be back.

“Great Atmosphere and Drink Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

If you are in the New Farm/Tenneriffe Area. Definately check this place out. It is a small walk from the Powerhouse. Is very expensive but the service is great, and their food and drink menu is extensive.

“Great little local!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2012

I've eaten here many times, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and all have been excellent. The food is imaginative and well-cooked, the beers and wines diverse and delicious, and the service is wonderful. As a vegetarian, I've become accustomed to only having one item to choose from on menus, but Bitter Suite offers some really tasty and healthy meat-free options (although meat-eaters are very well catered for too). I love the location on the street corner and the atmosphere is great, with people of all age groups seeming to enjoy themselves here. This place really captures the spirit of the good old British local and really fills a gap in the market. I hope it continues to trade successfully for years to come, as Brisbane really needs a place like this.

“Come for the breakfast and beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

Love the atmosphere of this place, the beer selection, the friendly owners & staff, and the breakfasts and coffees are the best in this neighborhood (maybe even all of Brisbane). Great for a beer in the evenings, but wish they had a more laid-back, affordable menu to go with the beers.
Breakfasts are a highlight thanks to the little touches - nice honey with the banana bread, lovely tomato chutney and chorizo sausages in the big breakfasts.

“Great food and drinks with frends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

My husband and I went to Bitter Suite because we thought it would be a fun place for us to meet with our friends ( 4 couples in total). The food was different but nice. I agree with the other reviews the duck pancakes were great but I am a lover of duck. The beer drinkers loved the different selections of beers and tried various types. If you are not a beer drinker the wine selection is good and the fruit punch refreshing. The surroundings and staff made the afternoon a very enjoyable one.
