I have been to many good restaurants in Brisbane and this is one of the best. From the time we walked in the door to when we paid our bill the service was brilliant. A very relaxing environment with great views.

Food was very good with a great variety

Amazing service and kind staff. The food is incredible and a great size for the price! Extensive and delicious wine list too! The handmade pasta is some of the best I've had. Freshest seafood! Beautiful touches on all the meals. Cedrick introduced himself to us and made sure he was constantly checking up on everyone and everything! The only one issue was we were very close to the table behind us (hard to get in and out and waiter had to pass food down as they could not fit between the tables to place it in front of us) and there was no adequate sun cover so we ended up in the sun for some time (not ideal considering some ladies at our table have had skin cancers cut out) however Cedrick did give one of the ladies his sunglasses! So lovely. Just wanted to give the feedback so it can be fixed in future. We will be back! Definitely recommend!

Staff were very helpful with our request to bring out a birthday cake after our meal. At all times the staff waiting on us were very considerate, and more than happy to attend to our requests. Knowledge of the food preparation was excellent, able to explain the dishes very well. A great experience.

There was simply not enough staff. One waiter was running around madly and therefore things were not as expected. The wine choice of Australian wines is limited and unimaginative and some of our team members had to reorder 3 times as his fish kept disappearing!!! Overall a very very disappointing experience.

Wow wow wow it was my birthday and it was made very special . The food was top quality. The steak was cooked to perfection and cut like a knife through butter. The pumpkin with Gorgonzola and walnuts was yummy. My friend had pork belly and loved it. The waitress was discreet but there when needed. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a lovely time.

The Polpette was delicious. The Beef Carpaccio melted in my mouth and kinda tasted like nothing tbh. The Arachini had that nice crunch. House-cured salmon was okay, probably wouldn’t order it next time though. The Parma Pizza was salty. The Pappardelle Al Ragu’ was a winner.
Food came out in a timely manner.

Service was a let down. I felt like our waitress ignored our table and when I got another waitress’ attention they said they would notify the waiter for our section, but never did lol. Our waitress knew we wanted to pay the bill, but went off to have a lengthy conversation with another customer. So we waited until we finally got someone else’s attention. Then when our waitress was done talking she came to our table and poured water for only 2 out of 5 people at our table when we were about to leave haha. It’s all good though. Some of my friends said they would come back again.

our Booking was at 20:30 and although not ready for us, we waited approx 15 minutes.
the view and service was excellent, with SAM our waiter being very attentive to our needs.

we ordered 1 main each and waited 45 minutes for this meal.
1 Margarita pizza - No taste to pizza topping or base, very bland.
1 premium steak - small portion of steak @ $45 was disappointing and lacked a good marble texture. , looking like a rum rather than en eye fillet.
1 side order of Broccoli - good to perfection
1 side order of chips- Large cut chips that where under cooked.

Overall the meal was a 2*
if there was no view or ambiance then we would of walked out after 30 minutes of waiting.

The outlook over looking the river is amazing and the bar and outdoor area are very pleasant for a pre-dinner drink.

The ambience is amazing. The restaurant is beautifully appointed and has a very elegant feel.

Sumptious food and excellent service. Great experience. I will be back.

Made a 8:15pm booking and arrived on time - were told they had to prepare our table and ushered our group into the bar to wait. 45 mins later - I enquired about our table - the restaurant manager came to us and apologised profusely and quickly lead us to a table - there were a number empty at 9:00pm. A disappointing start but the service from there was great and the food faultless. The free round of drinks was appreciated. Will go back for sure - so much good offerings in the menu.

The menu changes weren’t great. The staff weren’t as professional as the previous times I went. One fellow told me the menu wasn’t his area but could tell me about the ‘booze’. The waitress I told about my GF DF requirement and didn’t arrange suitable bread. She also didn’t know the fish of the day or much about the menu.

I was there for a business lunch and it was difficult to have a conversation as the waitress was there doing something at the table every 5 minutes. I almost had to say give us some space for a little while. We actually need to have a conversation.
