Some time ago, we decided it was time Brisbane’s West End had our very own tropical Covent Garden oasis…not long after, this little beauty was born! A contemporary gin house (with 500+ gins to indulge in), as well as one of Australia’s very few fully coeliac friendly / gluten free restaurants, right in the beating heart of West End!

    We had a fantastic time here at Covent Garden, the staff were very helpful from the Bar, through the Kitchen to the Functions Manager, great advice, friendly service & a lovely area to enjoy ourselves. Booking the seats for our party was as easy as emailing & after a couple of emails, we were sorted out. Absolutely recommend coming here, great selection of food & drinks on top of excellent service.

    The staff was extremely unorganised and made us feel like we were an inconvenience by being there. We were so excited to try this place and after barely touching our food and being moved from table to table we left hungry, angry and contemplated hitting the maccas drive thru on the way home.

    Hit and miss. Loved the salmon dish. Disappointed with the pork, meat was lovely, but skin definitely not crisp. Gin based cocktail was nice. They don’t do desserts (my fav part of a meal, ha, ha). The vibe/decoration is good. Outside looks appealing. We dined inside (30+ day) and in here it’s looking a bit tired and could do with a refresh.

    We came with a coeliac friend who was delighted to think everything was GF. And it was. We came for the food, which was fabulous. The gnocchi was the standout winner on the night with strong competition from the lamb AND the octopus. We will certainly return, just for more gnocchi. Staff were very attentive.

    Octopus was very salty. Dips were cheap quality especially for the price tag. Cocktails were pretty underwhelming in flavour but presentation was nice. Staff were all friendly and had lovely service though Looks like the restaurant needs a bit of a facelift- lots of worn out chairs, missing pictures in frames etc

    Such a cute venue! It is a 'gin venue' but as a non-gin drinker there was still loads of choice and extrnsive wine list. Share plates were generous in size and the food was absolutely delicious. Staff were attentive, polite and accommodating. The venue itself was so cute, beautifully decorated and the spacing of seating allowed meant it didn't feel overly crowded even when busy. Highly recommended and I'll definitely be back.

    We did make a booking in advance for a Graduation Celebration. We were placed at the entrance on the high table and chairs, not the most comfortable and felt like a waiting area. I did ask if there was another table available but was unfortunately told no. Another family came in just after us had a different waiter asked the same question and was moved. I suggest either making the tables at the entrance more comfy and maybe made to feel more of the restaurant/bar. Service, food and drinks was good.

    Beautiful setting, great service and delicious menu. The drinks were fantastic. The only thing we could fault was the pumpkin gnocchi which was very very chewy almost like glutenous rice. That was disappointing as it was not cheap, we did mention this to the lovely attendant who was going to pass this onto the Chef. Overall we enjoyed ourselves.

    We are concerned about food safety - many of our party of six had tummy aches the following day - both courses were served on wooden boards. We wonder about bacterial contamination. We did not know that we were to be seated on a high table on stools (yuck) and the share plates are so tiny it makes the experience awkward and overall not great. It was cold and we were seated near the door and window that staff would not close on request.

    A bar with a gin sommelier AND celiac-safe food? Absolute heaven! I cannot recommend this place highly enough, the food was delicious and the drinks were top notch. I really appreciate how our server helped us decide which drinks to get, his recommendations were excellent and he asked very helpful questions about our preferences so that he could recommend the perfect drink. One of my favorite restaurants in Brisbane!

    Everything was delicious! I loved that I could confidently eat anything from their menu as it is 100% Coeliac safe, and my husband was happy that it didn't taste gluten free. The service was prompt and super friendly. A bit pricey, so that would be the only (very minor) drawcard

    The staff were Fab-ulous Darling! They were fun, vibrant and knew their gin, as well as the menu and could make great recommendations! They were the highlight for my friends and I. The restaurant has a lovely relaxed indoor area which is vibrant and a little on the noisy side. It also has a chill-laxed garden dining area at the back, with a totally different ambience. Our group decided on the lamb shoulder to share, with sides. We were pleasantly surprised when our waiter came out with a plate of chicken, and said that there was a slight miscommunication in the kitchen and to enjoy the chicken as it's on the house, and that our lamb is still on the way. We all agreed that the chicken was devine and far surpassed the lamb, which came out in 3 med-sized chunks, instead of on the bone and juicy, as I was expecting. Unfortunately, it was over-cooked and a little dry, but the taste was great! I'm not a gin drinker, but my friends ordered 3 different cocktails, all with gin, and they each tasted great! I had a mohito, so if you don't lke gin, there are other options. The overall experience was great, and we'd definitely go back. Just allow time to find a park in the nearby streets, as there isn't restaurant parking.

    Covent Garden was such a welcome find. The service was great and the food was really lovely. The bar staff were incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and we will definitely be back! Great to find a 100% gluten free restaurant to take the stress out of dining as and with Coeliac. Loved it!
