We went here with friends and found it to be a cosy little restaurant for tasty cocktails and good tapas. Great patè and even tried escargot for the first time and loved it! A bit busy but a good atmosphere.

Great wine Bar with friendly staff & interesting dinner menu. Dim lighting added to the ambience. The food waiter was very friendly & provided excellent service. Salmon had a crisp skin & was cooked to perfection & we watched the chef make the gnocchi in front of us. The arancini balls were scrumptious! Definitely recommend.

Growing up in Brisbane places like this didn't exist, luckily they do now. Cabiria is one the best wine bars I have been to across Australia. The wine list is impressive, the food simple but quite complex and the setting charming. Tip of the hat to Maui, who is without question provided the best service from a bartender I have... More

Great selection of wine - much of which is a bit right and left of centre. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. The food is good, without being great, but it's substantial, and with good variety. The atmosphere is terrific. It's an awesome place for a couple or small group to have a quiet drink and something to eat.

I have to Cabiria and Peasant before and always had a good experience. In this lunch visit i noted that the breakfast and lunch menu were combined and they may have been for some time? I do not know about others but I eat different thing in the morning than I do at lunch. As such i found half the... More

Cibiria was a welcome stopping place for a quality meal, en route to the football at Lang Park. While the prices are on the high side, the flavours are excellent. A selection of bruchetta and accompaniments hit the spot, although matching a wine was difficult. The wine list is extensive, but for the average punter there are few well known... More

Stopped by for a light bite and a catch up with people I hadn't seen for ages. We really enjoyed the feel of the place and it wasn't overly noisy, which allowed us to talk easily. Service was very knowledgeable and friendly without being intrusive. The wine list was excellent with interesting items at most price points. The oysters were... More

Recently had a family dinner here. Excellent food - not a huge menu but interesting. They ran out of the duck fat potatoes which was a bit sad but the sprouts and bacon were a tasty substitute.Everyone in our group loved their food. Wine list a bit pricey. The waiters and bar staff were very friendly and helpful. (It was... More

Quick bite to eat before the stadium, we fell over this place when we were searching for food. The atmosphere was lovely and the barmen were friendly and helpful. We sat at the bar and had the full view of the unlikely small kitchen. That being said the chefs (two of them total) were organised and efficient. The place was... More

We stumbled upon this place last night before the reds game and it was an enjoyable experience. We had some tapas to start and I had slow cooked lamb and duck fat roast potatoes, my partner had pâté. The food was really good and we found the service good. The kitchen is pretty interesting as it is mostly at the... More
