Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Fri, 19th Oct 2018 (9)

Nice for sharing. Good food and service

Colle Rosso Ristorante Italiano

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Fri, 5th Oct 2018 (8)

I have dined at Colle Rosso many times before and have always enjoyed the food and they have had good service. Our recent visit was not the best as we waited over an hour for our main, which was only 1 dish of pasta to share. The pasta was very nice, but we only got it as we started to walk out of the restaurant. Apparently there was a new chef in the kitchen who had trouble with the pizzas, so anyone else with pasta got forgotten. To their credit, the head woman was very apologetic for the delay and did not charge for the pasta dish. I have to commend her for her polite manner in handling the situation. We will go back and hope that this visit was just a one off bad experience.

Malt Dining

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Sat, 8th Sep 2018 (8)

Quite noisy, so difficult to have conversations. Green veg, kale, I think, was very tough. Barramundi was lovely. Pork collar was a bit tough. Wait staff didn't have idea of beer menu.

Darling & Co

Paddington

Elana dined on Wed, 5th Sep 2018 (9)

Nice food, nice venue

Summit (Brisbane)

Toowong

Elana dined on Wed, 8th Aug 2018 (10)

Great views, excellent wait staff & manager on a quiet day. Food good and portion sizing for express lunch just perfect. Love it

The French Bistrot

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Fri, 27th Jul 2018 (7)

Bouillabaisse soup was tasty and seafood well cooked except for the piece of fish with skin on, wasn’t cook properly and was rubbery and inedible. Service was a bit slow but waiter was French and friendly. Used Dimmi special 50% off deal which made it ok but if paying full price, it’s not worth it.

The Terrace of Maleny

Maleny

Elana dined on Wed, 4th Jul 2018 (9)

Lovely food. Chowder is great. We wanted to share and they arranged that for us. Unfortunately we went on a weta and cloudy day so didn’t get the views

Air conditioner not strong enough on hot days

The Alliance Hotel

Spring Hill

Elana dined on Tue, 6th Feb 2018 (9)

Very good for small group if you get the separate dining room. Was also good to be able to take a cake and not have to be charged cakeage if you cut it up yourself.

Portabella Restaurant

Albany Creek

Elana dined on Sat, 13th Jan 2018 (8)

Passion fruit beer was interesting! Think they put the taps on the wrong kegs! Chocolate mousse was thick and dense so not the best dessert.

Summit (Brisbane)

Toowong

Elana dined on Wed, 3rd Jan 2018 (7)

Very slow service to start with. Had to ask a waitress to order drinks after sitting there for 20 mins with just water. Timing may have been bad as we were booked for 6.30pm and the staff seemed more interested in getting the sunset diners out and setting up for the rest of the night.

Six Acres Restaurant & Bar

Bowen Hills

Elana dined on Sat, 30th Dec 2017 (8)

Nice food but limited menu due to festive season and chefs on holiday. Desserts quite large.

Jellyfish

Brisbane

Elana dined on Sat, 18th Nov 2017 (8)

Nice food but very expensive and noisy

Bourbon Street

South Brisbane

Elana dined on Wed, 8th Nov 2017 (5)

Limited menu. Average service

Summit (Brisbane)

Toowong

Elana dined on Sat, 21st Oct 2017 (8)

Nice food but express lunch seems smaller than when originally started. Not as good value these days as other restaurants would include a glass of wine in the deal whereas it is extra now

London Fields Gastropub

West End

Elana dined on Wed, 18th Oct 2017 (7)

Nice spot. Could have a broader selection on menu

Full Moon Hotel

Sandgate

Busy night so service was a little slow. Food very good and prices more reasonable than expected

Belvedere Bar n Grill

Hamilton

Elana dined on Sun, 2nd Jul 2017 (7)

Big ship was in dock, so no view! Seafood pasta was delicious.

Cutty Sark

New Farm

Elana dined on Wed, 14th Jun 2017 (8)

Cosy lunch on a cold wet day

Nice location and food and service good

Riverside Cafe Bar & Restaurant

Perth CBD

Nice location, water views. We dined Sunday evening, but they closed at 7.00pm so was a very quick visit

Nice atmosphere, food and service good.

Thyme2

Brisbane

Elana dined on Wed, 19th Apr 2017 (9)

NIce buffet, lovely atmosphere

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Wed, 5th Apr 2017 (9)

NIce food. Had the Xavier's table which was nice to try all the various foods. It's expensive at full price, but as I had a 50% off deal, it was very reasonable

Full Moon Hotel

Sandgate

Elana dined on Tue, 21st Mar 2017 (9)

Nice views, nice food, reasonably good service

Colle Rosso Ristorante Italiano

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Sun, 12th Mar 2017 (8)

Restaurant is very noisy and therefore difficult to hear as everyone has to speak very loudly to be heard.

Thyme2

Brisbane

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

The buffet was lovely, but I wouldn't pay full price. We had a 50% off offer through Dimmi so that is why we tried the restaurant. The wine we wanted they didn't have, so we were forced to use the wine buffet. Fortunately it was a little cheaper.

Golden Palace Chinese Restaurant

Fortitude Valley

Elana dined on Sat, 31st Dec 2016 (7)

We had yum cha which was quite nice. The food was hot, the selection was ok, but could have had more variety. The restaurant is nice and spacious which was good for our group so we could talk and eat at a leisurely pace.

Colle Rosso Ristorante Italiano

Brisbane CBD

Elana dined on Sat, 22nd Oct 2016 (9)

Nice meal although the fettucine marinara could have done with more flavour and chilli

Lutece Bistro & Wine Bar - French Restaurant
