“A hidden gem”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

I had been here years ago & loved it so I jumped at the chance to revisit. The food was exquisite, with meal sizes which filled you but didn't make you feel stuffed, this also allowed me to have a real 3 course meal & enjoy every bite of them all. The bugs tails with a macadamia crust were sensational with each mouthful you discovered a new taste as well as a different texture. The service was great without becoming intrusive. The combination of food, wine & service made sure I kept really good memories of the place & I will continue to recommend it to anyone who heads to Gladstone.

“Good food, bad taste left in our mouths”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We had a 6:30 booking on a Saturday night for five people. The waiter was attentive and the food was pretty good for Gladstone. We had three entrees, mains for five, three bottles of wine and coffee and dessert for one. By 8:00 we were the only table occupied in the restaurant and at 8:30 they asked us to leave because the chef wanted to go home and they wanted to have a drink. My friend had not even finished her coffee. When you spend over $400 for dinner, you shouldn't have to feel rushed out. We won't go back.

Thank you for your feedback,
I would like to firstly apologise from management if at any time you were offended at the end of your dining experience as this was not intended. We did look into the evening in question and found there are a couple of incorrect statements within your review.
At 8.00pm we had 3 tables in the restaurant. 1 left at 8.10pm and the other left at 8.25pm. After looking at the EFTPOS docket for when you paid, the time on the docket was 8.28pm, we then waited patiently for you to finish chatting as all drinks and food had been consumed, just after 9.00pm I returned from reception and upon entering the restaurant a gentleman at the table said "I suppose you want us to leave" my reply was "actually that would be good as this is my chef last night and I should shout him a beer.
Once again if you were offended we are deeply sorry as this was not our intention. We like to let people stay for a reasonable time after they finish dinning but with any business there is a point when they need to close.
We do hope that you will return to try us again.
Regards Management

“This place deserves to be No. 1”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Adjacent to the Harbour Sails we tried this restaurant based on its convenience and trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! Beautifully presented and delicious meals along with fantastic service. Loved the ambience too! Only disappointed that we don't live nearer because this would be a regular for us!

“Yummy food and great service!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We made a last minute booking on a Friday night and luckily managed to get a table. The ambience was relaxing and the waiter very friendly and helpful. Our meals were delivered in a timely fashion and were presented nicely. The food was fresh, cooked well and tasted delicious! We will be dining at the brass bell again in the future.
