Had the set menu - beautiful food and fantastic service. Great wine list! A really enjoyable evening. Set menu was great - didn’t have to decide and knew it would be great - it didn’t disappoint.
Strongly recommend the five course set meal. Good balance of flavours within and between dishes. Serving sizes just right - not too much food. Thoroughly enjoyed and will be returning.
Perfect in every aspect.
Staff treat you like they are excited to see you.
Excellent food and attentive service. Always a pleasure to dine at E’cco.
Great night, excellent food and fantastic service. Looking forward to trying out the next menu
The food is delicious and the wait staff make you feel so comfortable.
Amazing food and great service, but this was outweighed by how ridiculously overpriced the food and wine was! Also the portions were minuscule and we left feeling hungry after a 3 course meal. The wine prices were extortionate for the absolute minimum in a glass. We will never go back there. Shame as we used to live the old Ecco bistro, it’s changed.
Excellent venue, food and service.
Will definitely return
We dined at Ecco Bistro recently and had the 3 course set menu lunch. It was fabulous. I have gluten and dairy intolerances and these were catered for without any fuss and without any loss in flavour. I love that! We will definitely be back.
Amazing food! Staff are wonderful. We had a great dinner. Would definitely recommend
I was lucky enough to be the recipient of a voucher to dine at E'cco Bistro. but for that, I wouldn't have been there as I was oblivious to their existence. The restaurant surpassed our dietary requirements (we are all Vegans) and without exaggeration, every dish was 10/10. Usually I find that when I the entrée is excellent, the rest of the courses struggle to keep up but on this occasion E'cco Bistro dished up every course on par with the first! the only complaint, if I must, no plant based milk for the coffee to round out the evening - only dairy, but I'd be surprised if that was to happen again..
So E'cco Bistro go ahead and boast about your vegan menu!! It's amazing!!
We had a great evening was an all round fabulous experience. Loved the paired wine option which matched really well.
Food was top notch! Would recommend this place to anyone
Had a really high standard fixed price lunch.
Went for wine by the glass. Enjoyed our selections.
Definitely going to return for another meal
We had an excellent dinner. Service was excellent and food terrific including the vege options
Only I thought the wine list is overpriced
Fantastic food, service and atmosphere. We enjoyed the $89 set menu which was delicious and okay value for money - 5 courses including the 'bread' course.
Wine was very good but a little overpriced.
Having said all that, I'd definitely go back and recommend it!
Great to have the E’cco team back and the food is still brilliant in its design and execution. The $59 lunch is sensational value, only two very minor comments:- portion size of some elements a bit needlessly stingy (octopus and minuscule cheese selection), and we waited 1.5 hours for our main course! This did not worry us too much, but all up lunch took almost 3 hours from ordering to paying. Might be a bit much for those not lucky enough to be seated on a plush banquette.
It was very exciting to be able to return to one of our favourite restaurants and enjoy Phil’s delicious food and enjoying some nice wines. Mary is always very friendly and loves to have a laugh with you . The staff are always very friendly and are great at doing their job of making their guest feel special. Thank you Ecco
Lovely set menu with fresh flavours. Wine package good value. Fantastic friendly service
Great menu and attentive friendly service! Not rushed at all which is happening at many restaurants - fine dining cannot be rushed! The 5 course set dinner was perfect ...great blend across the courses, meticulous presentation, great tastes and just done so well! Highly recommended and thank you E’cco Bistro!
We loved the new degustation experience. Food and wine pairings were exceptional. Staff were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Great night out!
We really enjoyed our visit to e’cco. The food and service were excellent. The menu was great. The wine pairings were delicious. Thanks for a great night
The food was amazing and service was excellent. Fabulous ambience
A wonderful chef's degustation menu with paired wines. A divine experience, tinged with sadness about the oncoming Pandemic. Good luck everyone x
Amazing food and wonderful service for our birthday celebration
Wonderful food and service, good for special occasions l.
Great night with friends at their BYO Thursday dining. The food was good and the service excellent. It is great that a fine dining restaurant allows BYO on one night a week . Will be back
We usually love Ecco Bistro. On Saturday night we were a little disappointed with service. We had to get the attention of wait staff so we could get another drink. We really felt like no one was attending to our table. We of course will be back again and hope next time we get a bit more attention.
An amazing menu and very helpful staff.
Always love coming here for a special occasion
Beautiful food, but service was terrible and a little over priced
Food was spectacular! Service was average considering prices.
Just ok. Nothing special
Service was abysmal. We sat at the table for 20 minutes before drink order was taken. Entree was nice, main course okay. Noise level high. Due to bad service, we were more rushed to finish within the time allotted for us. Probably won’t go back. I expect better service and less noise for a fine dining experience.
Great from start to finish, service, food, venue.
Just ask for the vegetarian menu if you require, the standard menu has few options, the vegetarian food was great!
Overall it was a great dining experience. The only minor let down was our dessert sat on the pass for longer than necessary when staff were distracted. Mid week and about 30% full so it certainly wasn't busy.
The menu was innovative combining local ingredients such as kangaroo and Moreton Bay bugs with Asian imfluences. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. Our guests described it as the best food they had eaten in the Brisbane area for 20 years.
I have now been to this restaurant on many occasions. It is a lovely touch when the owner remembers me and escorts us to our table. Saturday night was a busy night and it was a little loud but still a very comfortable conversation was had. They left us at our table as long as they could and then asked if we wouldn't mind relocating to the bar, which we did gladly. I would recommend this venue for anyone looking for great food and a very friendly atmosphere.
Beautiful cuisine and perfect wine list. Always a great dining experience.
Food was excellent .. had the salmon for a starter.. very delicate ... beef short rib melted in your mouth.. the fish was also very good... greens were very crunchy and good recommendation by our waiter
Overall a very nice dinner .. we saw it on the website as one of the top 10 restaurants in Brisbane.. it did not disappoint
