Being a Brisbane local sometimes I shy away from food and clothing places who mostly get their business from tourists. They are often lacking in quality or are over priced!
This open air restaurant in the middle of the Queen Street mall is an exception. It has a great atmosphere to sit and watch the entertainers, plus people of all shapes and sizes go by, so I thought that might be the price to pay for ordinary food and service. I was so wrong! My wife, friends and I have been back many times. The service is friendly and fast, and the quality and variety of food excellent. It is rare to get steak so tender it almost melts in your mouth!
My wife is Filipino and often misses her favourite foods but the chefs there are flexible and if they have the ingredients and can prepare it, they will. Plus they will come out to your table to check if you are happy!
So whether you are a local or a tourist this is a very enjoyable place to relax, eat great food, feel the happy atmosphere and see some often fairly unusual sights! 10 out of 10 is what I give this restaurant! (Vaughan Bullivant, Daydream Island resort & Spa).
