Am always taken with Bar Alto in regards to their food and service, not to mention overlooking the Brisbane River. The staff are friendly, professional and know the wines on offer.

We dined outside enjoying the view of the riverbend and shared 3 plates of morsels. (All gf) The standout was the pork belly by far, we wished we had ordered that twice rather than the octopus which was quite fishy and had gritty bits from...More

There were three of us who thoroughly enjoyed lunch here. The staff were attentive and professional but friendly. The food was well presented, and don't we eat with our eyes - and delicious. When we're next in Brisbane we will come back.

On a beautiful day in autumn, with boats cruising up and down the river and with good food and drink we were at peace. And maybe slightly envious of the people living on the other side of the river.

Great food, great vibe, great service, and I really mean it. Great outlook ...and great position on the river's edge with a really unique historic feel and background. Go there, you won't be disappointed.
