Gastro Pub
Port Office Dining Room has been tastefully refurbished to reflect a warm and inviting open plan restaurant.

With a variety of dining areas available to suit guests for private business meetings to long languid lunches - the dining room is open for lunch and dinner, Monday to Saturday from 11.30am till late.

The menu is a modern take on Australian gastro-pub food with subtle European influences.

I went to the Port Office for a work function and was so impressed with the food and the amazing service that i went back again the following week for dinner.

We both had pork belly which was excellent but 2tiny pieces of carrot and 2pieces of turnip was not enough to counter balance the meat, we were told the fish came with mashed potato as well.
The desert choices were very poor as they were pretty much the same for the 3 offered .
Will return though!.

The variety of tastes on the menu, and quality of meals was very good and appreciated by our diners. Waiting for the meals to be served however was disappointingly long. Staff were friendly and well informed.

We have dined at a lot of 'fine' restaurants in the CBD during our stays in Brisbane, and we consider the Port Office Hotel Dining Room to be one of the best.

The food was a sad letdown with the flavour balance just not quite there. Good wine list, slightly awkward spot, try and ask for a booth or table near a wall.

Our mains took over an hour to arrive at the table for lunch!
The staff were apologetic when we asked where our food was. Did give us our entrees gratis for the inconvenience.
The Snapper special was delicious so in the end worth the wait

Everything was good, the staff excellent but facility lacks dining intimacy due to the noise from lack of soundproofing separation from the bar.

Maybe when someone orders the duck, asking how you would like it cooked would go a long way, as mine was blue in the middle and very tough. The rest of our meal was quite nice though.

Steak wasn’t cooked to order both - medium to medium well, both ordered medium rare. One starter came out cold in the middle - which was quickly re-done but still disappointing. Waitstaff were friendly and attentive. Wouldn’t rush back.

$50 loading on a bottle of wine generally throughout the wine list is too much. No longer value
$32 bottle of Yarra Valley Pinot noir on the wine list for $89.... ????

The food was incredible - steak was cooked to perfection and the flavours were exceptional. Not giving 5 stars because the service went downhill towards the end of the night, water glasses weren't refilled and we couldn't find anyone to get the bill.

Hi Wends, thanks so much for taking the time to review us, we are so glad you enjoyed the food. I will definitely pass on your feedback regarding our service as this isn't quite up to the standards we set. We hope to welcome you back again soon though.

Booked for Valentines Day Dinner
We decided to go with set Valentines Dinner for $85 per person.. glass of French champagne or beer
Shared entrees (3) was amazing!!!
Humous and toasted ciabatta
Mango salsa type with fresh queen pawns ahhh fabalicious
Carpaccio of some meat was yummy too my fav was mango salsa with prawns and it was so well decorated with spinach leaves cut out of hearts... Chef at least had some romance there!! Thank you I appreciated!!!

Mains OMGgg choice of
Rib Steak, Duck and Fish

I always go fish so I lashed out and had the steak because partner was having the duck and I knew I would get a taste... the steak was so good just ridiculous how could it be this bloody good really I wanted to go kiss the Chef but I did manage to restrain myself phew 😘 for Chef (Scottish guy apparently).

Partners duck was 10/10 just couldn’t get any better because I got to have some.

Dessert... I was stuffed but set menu what can I saw.. cheese platter for Moir what small was fine (2 cheeses and crackers very generous plus black grapes) honestly was fine!! Partner had so
Hazelnut mousse type thing with ice cream seemed okay I wasn’t excited to taste it but looked fine and he ate it!

Service the BEST waiter Matt (with two Ts he said) what a beautiful funny entertaining guy management you are lucky to have this man on your team of Avengers!!! Thanks Matt for looking me and Scottish hubby!!! You gave the bubbles to my champagne I giggled like a 15 year old 😝

Sadly the only thing I could pick was ambience not very romantic at all.. no flowers candles table clothes etc balloons to Bruce Up! The place but hey!! I paid or hubby did for the food ... actually one nice detail we did get a Ferrero Rocher at the end of dining and one out the door!!!

Honestly we have been expats abroad for 15+ years plus so I know a bit about fine dining plus being Spanish and love cooking HUGELY recommend The Port Office. Asta la vista baby!!! 😘

I took 2 clients to lunch who had not been to the Port Office before for lunch. Having a wide range of restaurant venues to choose from i chose the Port Office as I was confident they would enjoy the experience.They were pleasantly surprised and very much enjoyed the quality of the food, wine,service and ambience. I am sure they will return.

Firstly we love the Port Office Restaurant. It is serene, ambient and classy. The Menu when we went was a shortened Menu due to the main Chef being away. It was simple and not amazing. However the food was well executed and flavoursome so there were no complaints. Our waiter was excellent with both service and personality. There is a good wine list of inexpensive to overly so and also good quality ones. We will always come back.

We arrived to dinner on Christmas Eve 4 adults and 3 children. Looking around, there wasn’t a sign of any Christmas decorations. Very disappointing especially for the kids.
Poor ambiance, no children’s menu. Pretentious waiter.
We ordered 4 serves of rib fillets medium rare, and they were inconsistent with the order.
We Were really looking forward to the wagyu steak, and as soon as we were seated were told that they ran out of it.
The salad portion was very minimal.
Also, the wine we wanted was not available.
Why bother opening at all on Christmas Eve?
