Went with a small group of three couples and one toddler for dinner. Location is very nice along the Brisbane river with views over the river. We started with some shared appetisers, an antipasto plate, some dumplings and some croquettes. The prawn dumplings in a broth were outstanding as were the croquettes. The antipasto plate was a mix of high... More

We were a large group but the service and quality of food was exceptional. We had plenty of waiters and all meals arrived together. Food was delicious, from the starter to the dessert.

The food was nice; solid, but not totally memorable. I had the pork belly for entree, the wife had the scallops, For mains we had the special, which... More

A recent visit to Brisbane, I discovered the restaurant I was looking for was closed. By chance I found Alchemy Restaurant and Bar. This turned out to be a lucky find, as the meal was delicious, also the wine we were recommended to have with dinner, has since become a regular beverage . A lovely Prosecco accompanied Braised Beef Cheeks... More

I had a delightful dinner there with colleagues recently. The scallops for entree were delightful. I had the beef cheeks (one of my favourites) for the main and they were done to perfection. The only slight disappointment was the dessert - I had a fruit tart (which was fine in itself) that was served with liquid nitrogen to give it... More

Most people would agree when paying premium prices you expect a high level of service. We visited Alchemy on Saturday night to celebrate a family member's birthday. Our table was located outdoors overlooking the river which was very pleasant however it was a case of out of sight, out of mind!!! We were seated for almost 45 minutes before our... More

Wonderful food and excellent service. A range of traditional dishes created with a modern twist and all beautifully presented. Best of all every dish tasted as delicious as it looked. I had the lamb and it surpassed my expectations for tenderness and flavour. A friend was blown away by the liquid nitrogen frozen desert experience. A bit of a wait... More

We ordered a selection of all the entrées &... More
