Have been to this resturant many times and have so many great meals here to the extent of recommending it to friends, and this is where my story goes bad, they had a bad experience, and then we went back to see why, and we have now had a bad experience twice since, seems that get too busy Friday and Saturday night and the service suffers, otherwise the food is great, and when not busy the service is great, so in all my suggestion, go on a now busy day and you might be ok.

By far the best food I have had in Brisbane. Service is excellent, staff are friendly and I can't say enough about how good the food is!! I have had a few different meals on the menu and I have not been disappointed...reasonably priced for fine dining food..!

The decor is nothing special but the food is very good. The waiter from California who had been there for two days was excellent!
