What a treat. It's open for lunch on Thursdays and Fridays. Same menu for lunch and dinner. Price point is right on - generous portion and easy menu to follow. You get what you see in the menu for what you pay for. I'm very satisfied with what we had. Highly suggest getting the share plate for entree. Octopus was... More

I must admit to being conflicted in my opinion of Moda. A winter visit was superb – as one of a large group seated in the Garden Room courtyard, feasting on the chef’s mid-week specials. The next time was a November visit with three passionate foodies and I think we all felt the same – too much food, some a... More

I was a guest at a large dinner and unlike most functions I've been to in recent years, this place actually treated us like grown ups. Three courses with share platters of exceptional quality and craftsman ship was delivered with care and attention to detail. I thought the scallops entree and duck main were gorgeous. They really know how to... More

We (3) had the Javiers Table, a selection of 5 entrees, 5 mains and 3 deserts, the food was fantastic and certainly a good variety of Spanish style food. Service was great and wine suggestion was spot on.

This is a great restaurant, a favourite when we visit Brisbane, friendly staff who make the dining experience much more special. Food is excellent and terrific value. We had the chefs choice menu a selection of entrees, mains and dessert for only $89 per person. So much delicious Spanish food, I went with big guys and they couldn't eat it... More

This was one of the best meals I have had. I went straight to the main meal - milk fed Lamb with seasonal veggies which was absolutely beautiful. For dessert I went for the Chocolate Mousse and berries which was delightful. The wine list was great and had a nice glass of Shiraz Definitely recommend and will be back soon.

This is a good casual dining, but fine food, restaurant in the heart of the CBD at relatively (for the CBD) reasonable prices. Three of us went for dinner, we all enjoyed it. My only gripe is the food was a little slow in appearting and not all the wait staff knew the menu. However, once we found ourselves a... More

The Javier's Table experience is a highly recommended degustation where various selections from the menu are invitingly presented and carefully portioned for sharing. Wagyu gnocchi were a recent addition to the menu, and Javier was accommodating in incorporating them into the mains. For entrée, octopus with vibrant tropical fruit and pretty scallops with ham were highlights. While I unfortunately found... More
