We are vegetarian so we love that they have a wide range of options. Every meal is delicious. We've been many times and every time is a real treat. Always a special place to go.

I love the menu because I can’t figure out how to replicate it at home. The textures and the veggie dishes are just the best. Wonderful service. Great wine. It can be a place to dress up for and also to relax more casually, the best of both worlds!

Detour is a 'regular' dining spot for us. We just know the cuisine will be creative and delicious, the service welcoming, helpful yet not intrusive. And the anbiance superb. It's about those mellow coppery walls and natural timber backdrops. The room simply glows by night.

Amazing service and food - the plant based menu is the best in Brisbane. Can not praise the staff highly enough. Don't wait for a special occasion, just go!

Service was good, the food itself was disappointing. The presentation was beautiful however the flavours and texture of the spanner crab and the salmon was confusing and thrown together. The brisket was well cooked but far far too salty. The broccoli was okay, but also far too salty. I respect the ideas, the ingredients, and presentation, but the flavours and textures were confused.

Despite a warm, welcoming industrial space and good service, Depot’s dishes left a lot to be desired. Flavours were bland and too complementary, garnishes conflicted with leading ingredients, and the seafood, meat and vegetable dishes we ordered lacked vibrancy and punch. A real shame.

The spammer crab was fine but locked flavour and the KFD duck dish was dry but the staff were great, the atmosphere lovely and the carrots were out of this world. Suspect we just got the kitchen on an average night. Good wines.

This is my 3rd dining experience at Detour in a couple of months. The Mada Pinot Gris is particularly a favourite of mine and you can't buy it in shops locally so have to keep coming back to enjoy here. Food is always fresh, very tasty and something a little different. Not super cheap but a lovely treat.

Service was friendly and efficient, if not too much....with constant topping up of wine glasses without asking. We where here 2yrs ago and were blown away with the quality of food then. Unfortunately, this time the food was no where near the quality we recall.To be very honest it was only average at best.

We were seated outdoors, which was a surprise, but still pleasant. In fact it was nice and quiet, and fortunately it wasn't too cool.
The food was up to the usual standard, and we had some great new red wines as well.
Great to see this excellent restaurant continuing to go strong.
As always, must get the K.F.D....duck and corn bread is a winner.

The food was beyond the ordinary and delicious. It was also very expensive. The waiter was friendly enough but did not fully engage with us, he kept looking above our heads and out the window.

Amazing venue, service, atmosphere and food!
A little expensive, but very special dishes and flavours.
The only downside is that if you’re seated near the rear kitchen/dishwashing room, like we were, you can see and hear all the dishes being washed all night, which is a bit noisy and also takes away from the special ambience of the place.

Food was very tasty but the man that served us was rude, condescending and too familiar for a first visit. He also had poor timing on plate clearing (both too quick and too slow at different stages).

Detour had excellent friendly service from the start and throughout. The staff were happy to give recommendations to suit your dietary requirements.

The venue is very modern and comfortable, decor is lovely.

The food was amazing, I would be keen to go back to try the rest of the menu.

Extremely overdue to revisit Detour and once again it didn’t disappoint.

The food is incredible whilst the service was friendly and laid back. Very comfortable.

Really enjoy watching the open kitchen set up too. Entertaining yet soothing.

The music playing over the speakers was great too. Brought the personality of Detour even higher.
Would stop boujie high end, pretentious customers in their tracks!

Put it on your ‘Places to try’ list now.
Highly recommend

I was very impressed by the friendly and attentive staff as well the cuisine. I have often found that I can cook as well if not better than restaurants. Detour has finally exceeded all expectations regarding culinary delights, simply, they were amazing. I would not just recommend, but would encourage you to book a night out if you are looking for a great experience.

We ate here because it was within walking distanc of our accommodation and because of some very good reviews I had read. The food lived up to the reviews, the service and in particular the ambience, not so much. There were three staff in front of house, two men and a woman. They were run off of their feet. Our table was in the centre of the restaurant and they were constantly buzzing past. At this point let me say that it was a Tuesday night and not especially crowded, although I did notice that a couple of peole were asked to come back later. The result was that the service, although prompt and efficient, was rushed, cold and impersonal. The young lady at least made an effort to be warm and friendly. We ate our food and left. One extra server would have made all the difference.
