A surprise birthday dinner from my daughter. The whole evening was awesome from the decor, food, service and staff were a 10/10. The food experience was divine but our picks were the emu, the tootfish, the duck liver pate and to finish the berry compote....Not to mention my special petit fours from the Chef for my birthday! Thank u to all!!More

Friends kindly purchased us a voucher to use at this restaurant as a gift for them staying with us. When called to book a table they would not do without us supplying a credit cards. None of this information was on voucher. Zero customer service,...more money focussed, feels like a total scam. Voucher will not be redeemed. More money focussed than customer service focussed.More

Fantastic! Not cheap, but well worth the money. The tasting menu was full of interesting combinations/flavors which were just the right size & presented nicely. For me the wine pairings were the best part of the evening! They got them all just right👍 Each wine...showed it’s best side after taking a bite of the accompanying dish.More

We had recently moved to Brisbane from Adelaide and were a bit disappointed with what we got for what we spent compared to our previous experiences with digustation. I wish we bothered to read reviews as the latest ones are pretty spot on.. The portions...were absolutely tiny even the main courses, the food was interesting but certainly not mind blowing for the price you pay.. You are left feeling a bit like you'd just spent more money you have on dinner in a long time, but are still hungry and not really experienced anything particularly memorable.. It feels like there is a much bigger focus on presentation then on flavour, originality and satisfaction (hard to walk away happy when you are still hungry and I'm just a small girl who doesn't eat big portions anyway)More

My husband and I visited Brisbane, we decided to try a fine dining Restaurant, upon entering we had a very good feeling that the Restaurant looks very unique ,and has a very nice selection of wines. We liked the Atmosphere and looked forward to try...the Menu. As soon we sat down we were told that the long course is not available because we arrived @ 19:30 , at the time of the booking it was not mentioned earlier in the day. We went for a 7 short course. First up , amus bouchée , was very simple to say the least , At the time of the order I explained to waitress that I cannot have raw meat or fish because I am pregnant, in which the restaurant offered a vegetarian variant which I didn’t agree with. Amus bouchée was a tofu with cabbage with no taste and my partner had tuna which tasted very plain with little taste at all. Then the following tastings, (courses) were the same ,tasteless, although the dishes were very well decorated. Upon this ,it is through, that these dishes where all pre-made a refrigerated early in the day and not made fresh as expected for fine dining experience. We didn’t find anything impressive of the courses. At the end we were asked about our favourite dish we couldn’t mention anything , moreover we were charged for long course not the short course. We had 3 service attendants asking constantly how is the food and confirming our orders which we find little bit overhelming. Overall the experience was interesting but would not repeat, At the end of our dinner we were offered after dinner experience what actually was impressive- various taste of special chocolates and a liquor. Best about the night was the fine wine . Over priced food , great setting , great wine ,More

Food was extremely bland. The staff asked each course if we enjoyed the food, we provided feedback with it was ok, they asked what we did and don’t like about it then we commented it was a bit bland. The 3rd course the waitress replied...to us with well no other customers have complained. I went to the bathroom to find my husband not at the table only to find he had been asked by the manager to have a chat. The feedback was not welcomed and then we were also accused of influencing other diners. The food had no aroma or flavour. Please save your money as you can cook can cook better at home or have a better meal at a food court. The experience was terrible but they cover the bill.More

Less than average. 2nd time here after first time disappointed 5 years ago! Thought things would have changed. Service good, food so so. Very tiny portions. We ordered 7 course got 5 course- we were told that everyone gets confused by short course and 7...course. Well change it if everyone gets confused! Arrived at 6pm and finished dinner by 7pm…. They rushed us to get us out. Courses arrived before forks put down!!! Tried to charge $50 surcharge as our 6th guest was sick! They did not tell us upon arrival if this surcharge. We challenged it and got it deducted! No manager came to apologise or talk to us. Just left it to waitresses to sort out. We won’t be back ….. and don’t bother goingMore

Booked for 4 on a Saturday night and had the Long Degustation The table service was good. The food not so much - You do expect small serves in this style of dining however these were extremely small. please dont go to their facebook page...and look at the images because that is not what you will get. Most courses lacked any form of texture. The last course came out it looked like they had went to coles bought a chocolate cup cake and chopped it into 4 pieces and we each got a piece of it with a couple squirts of hazlenut creme.More

This small, atmospheric bistro in Auchenflower is a real treasure. Limited seating in intimate surrounds but excellent food and efficient, knowledgeable staff. The decor has to be seen to be believed. The wine list of both Australian and overseas wines has something for everyone. While...it is certainly not a local business for us, we will certainly be back. On this occasion we had the degustation menu, but next time we intend to try the a la carte menu.More

The 5 course degustation was chosen by all, whilst we opted for individual glasses of wine as...we talked and enjoyed the company. The courses arriving at our table were explained explained. Great service, wine and food, what else can one ask for. Just yum!More

My partner booked this restaurant for my birthday. What an AMAZING experience. We had a 9 course degustation, and it was a “surprise” as we chose not to read the menu on arrival. Importantly, when we booked we requested gluten free, and they accommodated this...for the whole menu. Every dish was so beautifully presented, and the flavours were exceptional. The only feedback we would give is to supply a non-alcoholic cocktail “mocktail” menu. My partner was not drinking alcohol and ordered a non-alcoholic drink that was suggested by our waiter- it turned out to be $20 (the cocktails I was drinking were $22-24). We probably wouldn’t have paid this much for a mocktail, if we had known. However, I don’t want this to take away from the amazing experience we had. We would definitely return to try more of their food! Thank you!!More

It’s one of those places that you drive past for years and think ‘I should go there one night’. Well haven’t I been missing out. They offer a number of degustation options depending on how full you are or dietary restrictions. Each meal was presented...magnificently and came with a story from the host. Along with paired wines you couldn’t ask for a better night with friends or family.More

At least smart casual, but it is a classy enough place to totally dress up...we did. There is easy street parking available.
