    Although the food and service was generally pretty good, the value for money was only fair. We have eaten at many nice restaurants and we love our seafood, so we were disappointed with the serving size. Especially the scallops. Generally, we pay between $5-$6 per scallop cooked and presented in a similar way. To receive only 2 scallops for over $20 is a bit rich. 4 to 6 for around $24-$30 would leave scallop lovers feeling like they actually had some. The bug dumplings similar.

    You will not be disappointed by the high quality food at Tillerman. We had the chefs banquet and it was incredible. The sommelier was exceptional and his service was impeccable. I’ve marked it down only because it is quite expensive. Particularly the champagne starting at $50/glass is quite extreme. I chose a cocktail which was perfection.

    Definitely not worth the money we paid for food and the service. It took someone 20 mins to ask us what we wanted to drink after they sat us down. Then it took another 5 mins for someone to talk about the menu. My wife is Coeliac so we had to discuss the menu. By the time we ordered we have already been there for more than 30 mins. The entre was good but the mains were average. My wife's fish was overcooked. Also, we had to wait 30mins for mains to arrive after the entre. They also forgot one of our entre which we had to remind them. Will not dine here again. It was for my wife's bday and very disappointed how it turned out.

    Tillerman Seafood Restaurant truly impressed with their standout Moreton Bay bug dumplings paired with a bisque that was simply divine- we were left wishing for a whole bowl. The appetisers, mains and dessert also rounded off a top-tier dining experience. Fresh, flavorful seafood, prompt service & a vibe that will definitely draw us back. Worth the visit. Highly recommend!

    Great experience. Dined at Tillermans for my dad's birthday. Had the lobster, crumbed barramundi, bouillabaisse and duck. All of them were superb but bouillabaisse was the best! Service and view of the Story bridge was excellent.

    I read an article about Tillerman and thought it would be ideal for our 20th wedding anniversary which is on Valentine’s Day. I looked to make a booking and saw that a fixed price, fixed menu was offered for V Day. When we were taken to our table we were asked if we would like water. We replied that we did as we had just walked some distance and it was a 30 degree hot night. 15 minutes passed before the water arrived. I had chosen Tillerman because it was seafood. I was therefore mildly surprised to be served duck. I have had much seafood in my life but it has never included duck. The seafood that we received comprised four little pasta pouches containing a bug mixture and topped with caviar, some slices of gravlax, and a piece of Murray Cod, which, while not exactly seafood, was the highlight and it was very tasty. The meal was completed with a tasty berry dessert. Overall, I did not think the light meal was value for money.

    What a lovely view! Sunset on the Brisbane River. We caught them with a few staff down, so service attentiveness was down a bit, but the staff were charismatic and friendly. The food was very good, perhaps not memorably fantastic. Cocktails were varied, and the wine list is flat out AMAZING.

    It’s always a sad day when you return to a restaurant that had been terrific the two prior visits but you happen upon, “the Sunday crew”. I could go into detail about the service failings which make a mockery of the 5 star charges for the food and wine and the Sunday surcharge but I sense there would be little point as there appears little insight. There are a myriad of better places for much much less.
