Great restaurant in a great location. Really enjoyed the menu and drinks selection and the restaurant is in a convenient location. Suggest checking in the Lions are playing at the 'gabba when you are going here.

Capped time limit was a downer. Wine is extremely over priced. Food always out of this world. Service very good.

Hi there. The service was too much. Too many interruptions. I understand that you want to get people out eventually, to free up the table. I also understand that the staff would naturally fee like they should look busy in front of their boss but the constant interrtions was really started to bother both myself and my date. We were trying to enjoy each others company, over a nice meal but instead the conversation couldn't flow and 'what were we talking about' was asked mutiple times.

Other restaurants are able to get us out on time, while still providing good service so I know the fault wasn't with us.

I would still recommnd Detour, maybe others will have a better experience, but unlikely to go back myself.

Thanks

Good food, share plates but extra's add up. Waited to be offered second glass of wine but were largely ignored, so we went somewhere else. Detour missed a captive sale.

I am not exaggerating when I say this was the best food I have had EVER. Couldn’t fault a thing when it came to the food. All exquisitely flavourful. The ambiance of this place is 10/10. I really enjoyed the aesthetic and the staff were oh so friendly and accommodating. We were also recommended the most amazing wines. Overall, a dining experience I will not forget. Will 100% be back.

Incredible meal - the emu tartare and monk fish were highlights. Food was exquisite, the best meal I’ve had in Brisbane since moving here 4 years ago. The wine list is excellent, focussed on Australian low intervention wines which I love. Also a big shout out to John; who looked after us; he is the loveliest, happiest host I have ever come across. What a legend! Beautiful food, impeccable service, thank you. 🙏

Fabulous service. The monkfish was my favourite dish but the lamb was a little dry. I didn't like that we sat outside but the gas heaters did keep us warm. Would recommend as a food experience.

Loved everything about the restaurant apart from being persuaded by the waitress that we should order multiples of the dishes for our table of 6 instead of a variety of all different dishes. We wanted to try a number of different plates as the restaurant does share plates. When we ordered the waitress told us that our choices were “interesting” and that “the kitchen was under the pump”. It was annoying - we definitely didn’t need 2 lots of the same dishes. It felt a bit like it was all about what was easiest for the restaurant, not what was best for us. Otherwise, the food was really great and the service was efficient. Great for vegos and vegans too. I would definitely go back but I would just order singular dishes.

Definitely 100% worth it. Had flavours I don’t think I knew existed :)
I would recommend going when it is a bit quieter if you want more attention and less noise but we had a really fun experience on a busy and social Friday night.

Beautiful decor. Alert staff who are pleasant as they deliver excellent service. The food is exceptional. It's refreshing to go to a restaurant and be able to order without altering dishes to suit. All tastes covered. Wines are spray free and that's a bonus too. Cuisine that is masterfully designed and a delight to receive. Terrific location too.

Go to Detour. No question. Best restaurant in Brisbane by far. Delicious interesting food. Staff very helpful in menu selections - will advise best groupings of dishes and order. Phoebe served us. Most delightful. Perfect mix of being informative and keeping it fun relaxed but professional. Great wine list. Can highly recommend.
