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.

With two friends for a long lunch - awesome as ever. The mussels are always a must. We tried some interesting Italian wine for a change this time - wow.

As an Italian FOODIE, I am a tough critic! Last time, we ate here for dinner and I gave them 4 stars. The only reason I gave them 4 stars was the staff were bland. No personality. This time, we ate here for a Friday...More
