“The most delicious pork ribs I have ever eaten”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

The shared plate of 1kg gooralie pork ribs w/ smoked bbq glaze, spiced wombok & fries along with side plates of garlic prawns and rocket salad with parmesan and prosciutto is enough to make the most staunch dieter throw their hands up and succumb. Sure I am Australian and thus maybe not as exposed to pork ribs as often as my American guests, but they just said the whole thing was sublime. In fact conversation came to a halt other than the occasional groan. Oh yes, this is a must. Service was also excellent. This was dinner, but I can also highly recommend lunch - a great place to go for a catch-up with friends too.

“Great Lunch”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Been to Fix a few times now, mainly for work lunches but every time the food is delicious. Service is great - attentive but not fussy. Will be back here again for sure. Great location in the city too.

“Great food, great service”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

There was a party of four of us that visited Fix Restaurant in December as part of a Christmas celebration night out.
Three of us have eaten there on many previous occasions and although there are numerous other restaurants in Brisbane we keep going back to Fix as it is consistently excellent.
Another reason we love Fix is that one of our party had steak which was not to their liking - tasteless and tough. I mentioned it to a waitress who had the manager there immediately and a complete new meal was served quickly. The manager advised they had cut the new steak from a whole steak they had just opened - the other was to be returned to the supplier. The new meal was delicious.
This just emphasises how Fix put the customer first.
The restaurant itself has a great ambience and is an easy walk from the mall.

“Excellent service, quality experience”
Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

A fairly quick business lunch in the busy pre-Christmas period can stretch a restaurant's abilities. Not this one.
This kitchen delivered good quality meals, built around good fresh produce in a limited time. Best of all was the skill of the table staff, who had excellent knowledge of foods and wines, and a friendly unobtrusive manner. They had been well trained on the menu, had tasted the daily specials and really knew their wines.
When a high quality venue is wanted, without the need for a real "top shelf" price and experience, this is a great and stylish city diner!

“Fantastic steak”
Reviewed December 14, 2013 via mobile

The steak here never disappoints. I've been here twice now and it's always an enjoyable meal. With friendly staff and a central location its a great night out.
