Carnivores paradise. Indulged myself here during a recent trip and am very glad I did. Meat glorious meat brilliantly cooked. I had a 8 week aged grass fed rib eye with marrow bone for even more indulgence. Cost a fortune but worth every penny. A side tomato salad was also delightful and felt very healthy. Cosy rooms attended by highly professional staff and - as a plus - not too noisy. I have to mention dessert. I had a very rich chocolate gelato which was excellent by itself but paired with the 30+yr old Pedro Ximenez it was simply outrageous. A must for meatkovers in Brisbane. The meat here is awesome and that's why you go and shell out the big bucks. More

Service was very attentive upon arrival, however slowed slightly as the night progressed. The food was beautiful, however the dumplings were warm instead of hot, and the octopus was slightly overdone. Despite this, I would recommend this restaurant to coworkers and friends - this would be an especially good venue for business meals. More
