Coppa Spuntino Bar & Restaurant

Brisbane

Georgina dined on Wed, 17th May 2017 (9)

I am a frequent diner at Coppa, absolutely love this place and you can't beat their Tuesday and Wednesday night deals. Always great service, nice and simple ambience, definitely a favourite in Brisbane.

Pane E Vino

Brisbane

Georgina dined on Fri, 5th May 2017 (7)

I've been going here for close to 15 years and it has been consistently good, simple fare. This time I did feel the food and service wasn't as good as my previous visits however it could have just been an off night.

Ecco Bistro

Brisbane

Georgina dined on Fri, 17th Mar 2017 (7)

Group of 3, our first time dining there. Overall a really nice experience. The service was the real standout for me, although the food was very nice as well. My fish main wasn't very enjoyable and a second person at the table tried it and agreed but we were happy with all other dishes. Nice ambience and acoustics, too.

Bavarian Bier Cafe Eagle Street Pier

Brisbane CBD

Georgina dined on Tue, 21st Feb 2017 (7)

First time I've actually had food here, previously have only been for beers. I had the sausage platter which was very tasty, friends had the Bavarian platter and the cheeseburger and both were enjoyed.

The Balfour Kitchen

New Farm

Georgina dined on Sun, 5th Feb 2017 (8)

I've been here quite a few times for breakfast and have always been impressed. This was the first occasion where the service wasn't amazing and was quite slow even though it wasn't that busy. That being said, we were all very happy with our food and it's definitely one of my favourite places for breakfast.

The Apo

Fortitude Valley

Georgina dined on Fri, 27th Jan 2017 (10)

My third visit to The Apo and I'm never disappointed. Can't go past the smoked tartare, the goat taco and the onyx steak with chilli butter, but also every single dish I've tried has been spot on. Highly recommend this place, it's one of my favourites in Brisbane!

Comuna Cantina

Brisbane CBD

Georgina dined on Tue, 24th Jan 2017 (8)

2 of us had chips with guacamole and pico de gallo, the chicken churasco board, one fish taco, one veg taco. All very fresh and tasty, will return.

The Apo

Fortitude Valley

Georgina dined on Tue, 25th Oct 2016 (9)

Group of 5, we had the 50% off food offer through Dimmi. We tried quite a lot off the menu and were really satisfied with everything we had. Including 2 bottles of wine, our total was less than $45 each and were very full! Great service from our lovely waiter, too.

Coppa Spuntino Bar & Restaurant

Brisbane

Georgina dined on Tue, 6th Sep 2016 (9)

Second time here in less than a week, delicious food and wine. Will be making this a regular spot.

The Chelsea

Brisbane

Georgina dined on Sat, 18th Jun 2016 (3)

We were a group of 3 for lunch and unfortunately we did not have a good dining experience. 2 people ordered the duck and it was practically inedible, we raised this with the staff and they apologised but did not offer to take any cost off the bill. I then advised we would not be happy to pay for the duck, so it was removed. The table next to us also ordered the duck and told us they felt the same way. Light meal of scallops was also not very good and was not finished. I don't often ask for food to be removed from the bill, but it was not reasonable to be paying $60 for that food. We won't be returning to The Chelsea, based on this experience.

Sake Restaurant & Bar Brisbane

Brisbane CBD

Georgina dined on Fri, 27th May 2016 (9)

Group of 4, first time at Sake for all of us. We had a fantastic experience and a truly excellent waiter - I should have gotten his name. Food was all excellent, special mention to the popcorn shrimp and the sashimi tacos (they come with sake, too). Highly recommend Sake! Will definitely return. Only downside is the music was just a bit too loud where we were sitting, not sure if it's the same throughout the restaurant or if we were right near a speaker.

Bucci Brisbane

Fortitude Valley

Georgina dined on Wed, 18th May 2016 (8)

I frequent Bucci, try and get there once a month or so. Good food and service, consistently. The only negative is when the restaurant is full, it can feel a bit cramped because the tables are so close together but that's really a minor thing.

The Balfour Kitchen

New Farm

Georgina dined on Sat, 14th May 2016 (9)

Great food and service, as always!

Bucci Brisbane

Fortitude Valley

Georgina dined on Sat, 12th Mar 2016 (8)

Table of 2. Each had pasta and a couple of drinks. I had the spanner crab linguine which was exceptional, as always. My friend had the tomato braised walnut fettuccine and she loved it. Service is consistently very good.

Peasant

Brisbane CBD

Georgina dined on Sat, 5th Mar 2016 (8)

We were a group of 15 for a birthday, the $55 banquet is exception value. So much food.

French Martini

South Bank

Georgina dined on Wed, 24th Feb 2016 (7)

We were a group of 5, we dined on a 50% off Dimmi offer. All had entrees and mains and 3 bottles of French red, good food and the wine was delicious. A little too delicious for a Wednesday!

Thyme2

Brisbane

Georgina dined on Sat, 30th Jan 2016 (7)

We were a group of 5 for Saturday buffet breakfast. We came for a friend's birthday and had 50% off through Dimmi, so only a cost of $25 each. It was great value as it also included free flowing sparkling wine from 9am. The food is not exceptional but it's pretty good, the freshly made eggs were the highlight.

Sono Japanese Portside

Hamilton

Georgina dined on Thu, 21st Jan 2016 (8)

We have been coming to Sono Portside for years and have noticed on our last two visits that the standard of service seems to be slipping a bit. The quality and consistency of the food is still excellent. We shared between 2: Oysters, crab croquettes, kingfish sashimi with orange dressing, wagyu beef and also each had a scampi miso soup. Two glasses of Cloudy Bay Pelorus and a 300ml sake, totalling $211.

Mecca Bah Brisbane

Fortitude Valley

Georgina dined on Sun, 25th Oct 2015 (8)

Hadn't been to Mecca Bah for a few years, happy to report the food is still really yummy! Had lunch for 2: Turkish bread with hummus, haloumi with pomegranate, mint & lemon, Morrocan spiced calamari with bean salad (dish of the day, so tender!) & quail with quinoa and pomegranate. Drinks: 3 glasses of white wine and a glass of house bubbles. Total was $120. I do think $25 for each of the grill dishes was a bit overpriced but all in all, it was a good meal with good service.

Sono Japanese Portside

Hamilton

Georgina dined on Thu, 14th May 2015 (8)

2 of us shared oysters, snapper sashimi with lemon and sesame, crab croquettes and the teriyaki duck with a garden salad. Everything was delicious but the salad was a bit lacklustre. We also had warm sake and and a glass of Pinot noir each. $75 each. Really enjoyable evening and this was our 5th or 6th visit to Sono.

Lock n Load

West End

Georgina dined on Sat, 28th Feb 2015 (4)

Went for breakfast and was very underwhelmed with the food. Service was ok but not good.

Dell Ugo New Farm

New Farm

Georgina dined on Sat, 21st Feb 2015 (9)

We dined as a group of 5 for lunch on a Saturday. We each had entree, main & dessert (or dessert wine) and shared 2 bottles of wine. Fantastic, warm and welcoming service and the food was delicious. Will definitely be returning!

Baguette

Ascot

Georgina dined on Mon, 2nd Feb 2015 (6)

We weren't very impressed with our food, unfortunately. We both had steak for main and perhaps they just don't do steak well. Service was good.
