Very pleased overall. I travel extensively internationally and would have no hesitation with recommending Black Bird as an eating establishment. If there is any negative it would be that the wine selection is vast. Required viewing time when endeavouring to select a wine and peruse the variety is over 10 min. As a suggestion a smaller selection on one wine menu, that applies to your core menu and then a greater selection when you have a sophisticated diner. Hard to work out who is sophisticated - you can only try. More

Our waitress was absolutely fantastic. One of the best. She was very gracious and generous, and made very lovely conversation. She is the reason I will want to come back, honestly. The food was very nice, but portions are a bit small. Menu was good, maybe a bit more options in the Mains with seafood. Would love to go back! More

The food was absolutely amazing. We will definitely be back. The meat was just so beautifully flavoured and not dry at all. The rice was superbly fluffy. The meals are very large and very well worth the money. We will have to try other things next time. Having the option of dining inside or outside is great. It was Brisbane's 40° day so being inside was definitely required. Thank you for a wonderful evening. More

If you're after culinary flair, spectacular service and amazing value for money - don't sleep on Salon De Co. Staff were accommodating and knowledgeable, the furnishings funky, and the food fit for foodies (without skimping on the servings). Our host Ruben was incredible and could speak confidently on the food, wine, the building / hotel itself and life in general. An absolutely hidden gem in the historical Ovolo Inchcolm. More

Japanese | Brisbane CBD, Brisbane

Went to Sake to celebrate a graduation, the food was delicious (we had the tasting menu) - though portions were smaller than expected. Our server was lovely and kind in terms of explaining the dining options and how the restaurant served food. Ambience was warm, value was fair enough - given that this was marketed as “fine dining” and was a special occasion. Honestly, my only nitpick was that food from the tasting menu was served on a single shared plate, I’d very much prefer individual portions instead, divvying out food is always a bit messier at the table, especially when done by tired, hungry people. But there’s always Sono for that. More

Australian | Brisbane CBD, Brisbane

Little Big House encompasses the rich history, the vibrant energy and the relaxed sun soaked lifestyle that is Queensland

The iconic, heritage-listed Queenslander (originally known as "Collins Place") has hosted a variety of colourful tenants since being built in 1889, including incarnations as a Ship Inn, a Spaghetti House, a squatter’s den, and even a stint as the South Bank Police Station.

From ‘Big House’ to ‘Little Big House’ the venue pays homage to things of old while adding a fresh perspective, balancing charm with cheek, and drawing on images from Queensland's vast flora and fauna, animals, reptiles and creatures, serving it all up with a cheeky grin.

Reopened in the heart of the Southpoint development in South Bank in summer 2017, with all original features restored, Little Big House will take you on a journey…immersing you in a sweaty, humid, sun soaked, laid back, old Queenslander house party where everyone is your mate.More
