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.

Due to Covid and reduced booking times we just felt rushed. Shared a bottle of wine and felt like we had to scull an $80 odd bottle along with food. It was hard to really enjoy a place I’ve been wanting to visit for so long now. Having said that food was beautiful and our waiter was great but clearly under the pump to churn us in and out. Can’t wait to return and hopefully be able to stay a little longer next time.

Food was not anything outstanding. They had had the same menu items for several years (e.g. emu tartare and broccoli). Time for an update.

Incredible restaurant. Best service we’ve had in Brisbane as they kept an alert eye on the pace of every dish we finished, promptly bringing the next one when we were hungrier in the beginning, and allowing a perfect pause in the later dishes. This restaurant pulled out all the stops, with a stunning modern industrial ambience, perfect combinations of flavour and texture, and sharp awareness of the level of service/space we desired in every beat of the meal. We’ll be back soon.

Very interesting meals. I think each meal is very subjective! My husband and I both liked different dishes to each other but still enjoyed most of the food. Prices are a bit OTP for what you get. Service is impeccable

Remarkable menu refined yet unpretentious.
You can taste the chef's love for food in every dish.
We couldn't choose one above another they were all extraordinary.
The wine list is delightfully intriguing.
All in all an awesome affair.

The service was expert, the food and wine were exceptional. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys top quality produce prepared to a very high standard. Our waiter recommended 3-4 dishes to share. We were very full having eaten 4 dishes followed by the best chocolate mousse my wife had ever tasted (we shared one between two). We will definitely go back.

Great food and service. Only problem was being rushed through at the end. We were told and were prepared to free the table at the requested time but they wanted it 15 minutes earlier so bit of a rush at the end.

Beautiful food with nuanced and balanced flavors. And while the meat based dishes are delicious, it’s the vegetables that are the real star. A must if you are a vegetarian.
