Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Ross dined on Sat, 3rd Nov 2018 (9)

First time at the new Moda, in the main the food was impressive, particularly the tapas or small plates. Would definitely return for the black pudding and Piquillo peppers. Service was attentive.

Il Centro


Ross dined on Sat, 20th Oct 2018 (9)

Some 23 years between visits and it didn't disappoint, menu was so good we had difficulty choosing, great wine list and excellent service. Everything we chose was perfect, will definitely be back sooner next time!

Libertine Restaurant and Cocktail Bar


Ross dined on Tue, 25th Sep 2018 (9)

Had not been here for a while, had the $49 MYO Tuesday banquet and it did not disappoint and generous proportions. Coupled with excellent service made it a great night out.

The Brunswick Hotel

New Farm

Ross dined on Sat, 26th May 2018 (5)

Pretty average, steak in the beef salad was tough. Not great service, plates were not cleared away and we had to move them to another table. Definitely won't come back here, much better options in the area.

Darling & Co


Ross dined on Sat, 24th Feb 2018 (8)

Always good, service is impeccable. Only criticism would be sometime a bit noisy for conversations depending on what else is happening there. Food always very good, interesting wine list.

Fogata Latin Fusion

Fortitude Valley

Ross dined on Sat, 30th Dec 2017 (10)

Service exemplary, food was really top notch - we shared a bunch of starters, will definitely be back for more!

Darling & Co


Ross dined on Sat, 5th Aug 2017 (9)

Always a great dining experience, interesting menu, top quality food, and great service. Sometimes a bit noisy due to private functions adjacent to dining area.

Pane E Vino


Ross dined on Sat, 8th Jul 2017 (8)

Haven't been for a few years, but the quality is still there and exceptional service. Their formula obviously works.

Brewhouse Brisbane


Ross dined on Sun, 16th Apr 2017 (10)

Great beers, huge menu, awesome place!

Mecca Bah Brisbane

Fortitude Valley

Ross dined on Fri, 9th Dec 2016 (6)

Food was very good as usual here, service did let us down a bit - slow to bring drinks out - on a Friday night in December they need to be more prepared (and the place wasn't even that full).

Otto Brisbane

Brisbane CBD

Ross dined on Sat, 26th Nov 2016 (8)

Expectations were high given the reputation of Sydney Otto and also recommendations by colleagues. The food was very good, but not spectacular for the price, the sommelier/wine was the highlight for me and the service was exquisite. Would definitely come back.

Darling & Co


Ross dined on Sat, 8th Oct 2016 (10)

Impeccable service and great food as usual.

Embers Mezze Bar


Ross dined on Wed, 9th Dec 2015 (9)

Continues to offer great tasting food, great value for money, attentive service.

Sydney CBD

Ross dined on Sat, 11th Apr 2015 (10)

Everything about this place was sensational, the menu/food, the friendly staff/service and the impeccably chosen wines.

Bistro Alegria


Ross dined on Sat, 8th Mar 2014 (8)

Good but not great. This is the 4th or 5th time we have dined at Alegria in the past couple of years, service was impeccable as usual but there were some issues with the tapas- the pickled vegetables overpowered the tuna, whilst the wild boar was extremely flavoursome but the accompanying gnocci was stodgy and the croquettes didn't have a lot of manchego flavour. Minor things but this meal would not have won Australia's best tapas restaurant, give me Movida Next Door any day.

Ormeggio at the Spit


Ross dined on Sat, 22nd Feb 2014 (10)

This is fine Italian dining at its best.

La Via

South Bank

Ross dined on Fri, 31st May 2013 (8)

The food is always great at La Via and service efficient, only criticism is that, for the second time in a row, they have sprayed disinfectant on the table next to ours whilst we were still eating which spoilt the experience.

Mercy bar + eatery

Melbourne CBD

Ross dined on Fri, 19th Apr 2013 (8)

Great atmosphere, great cocktails, the food was superb save for the dessert (avoid the sundae). Serves a little on the small side, even the mediums, but overall exceptional flavours. Excellent but pricey wine list.
