Bavarian Bier Cafe Eagle Street Pier

Brisbane CBD

Phil dined on Mon, 31st Jul 2017 (10)

I'm sure "big portions" would be one of the most common feedback you would get from asking anyone who's been there. Absolutely loved the dinner there. Would love to go back again

Dutch Courage Officers' Mess

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Thu, 27th Jul 2017 (9)

Very nice food and fun drinks. Portions are a bit smaller than usual but the staff did say to order a few more plates than usual and share them around. Would have loved another duck dish but they had run out!

River Quay Fish - South Bank

South Bank

Phil dined on Wed, 19th Jul 2017 (8)

Spectacular location. Menu is quite nice and a bit of change to the usual.

Thyme2

Brisbane

Phil dined on Tue, 11th Jul 2017 (7)

It was fortunate I had the 50% deal. I don't think paying the full price would be worth going. Unlike a few seafood buffets I have been to, the oysters were brought out on a little tray and be gone within 5 minutes. The staff were very friendly and the interior was nice. There was a very decent selection of desserts as well.

NEST Restaurant and Bar

Brisbane

Phil dined on Wed, 28th Jun 2017 (7)

I feel they are trying too hard to bring asian cuisine into a western setting. Flavours were quite over powering. The sweet chilli sauce that was poured over the whole barramundi didn't taste that great like it was from a bottle bought at the supermarkets. The bao was very nice though. It had a very thin crunchy coating and was still soft on the inside.

Mecca Bah Brisbane

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Fri, 23rd Jun 2017 (10)

Absolutely loved this place. Second time and it was just as good as the first. Favourite this time was the grilled calamari and the halloumi entree. Looking forward to coming back.

The Catchment Brewing Co

West End

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

Food was good although the duck was really tough. Knife couldn't cut through it and had to chew a long time. Expected a bit more tenderness since it was sous vide. Beer was great.

Delfinas Bistro

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Sat, 20th May 2017 (6)

Had the brunch. Was quite overpriced for what you get. Have been to Delfinas for brunch and dinner a few times but just doesn't seem to be improving.

The Walnut Restaurant & Lounge Bar

Brisbane CBD

Phil dined on Sun, 7th May 2017 (9)

The service from each staff member was perfect. Food was also very nice too. Something that really surprised me were the rustic fries in the sides menu. They were seriously the best fries I've ever had. It had a super light crunchy coating. I would consider going back just for the same fries. Keep up the great work! I really hope the people at Walnut read this

Honeyeater Kitchen

Robina

Phil dined on Wed, 26th Apr 2017 (10)

Very rare do you find a restaurant where every dish is at such a high standard. Highly recommend the rib fillet as I have not had such a tender piece of beef in such a long time. Family thoroughly enjoyed the entire meal and quite well priced too. Will definitely be telling friends about this place. Well done honeyeater.

The Walnut Restaurant & Lounge Bar

Brisbane CBD

Phil dined on Sat, 22nd Apr 2017 (7)

The food was pretty good. It did take a bit of time to come out though. Atmosphere was wonderful and staff were quite nice too.

Blue Orchid Thai

Caloundra

Phil dined on Sun, 16th Apr 2017 (8)

Such a nice little thai restaurant. I loved the sauce that the special red lamb comes in. I wished the portion of the coconut soup would be a bigger since it was $11 for only a small bowl. The soup itself was great though.

Delfinas Bistro

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Fri, 27th Jan 2017 (7)

food was good. Service was also good but could be a bit more attentive. Food took longer than expected. the roasted potato sides was surprisingly good.

Eves on the River

Newstead

Phil dined on Thu, 12th Jan 2017 (9)

Such a fantastic location. Arrived just as the sun was setting. Food was incredible, I would recommend the tapas share platter and also the main for 2. Steak was beautifully cooked. Service was always friendly. Will definitely be back in the future.

Asana

very friendly staff. cool and modern restaurant. fish tacos were great!

NEST Restaurant and Bar

Nice unique flavours. The duck was especially tasty and I noticed many other tables also ordered it.

Corbett & Claude Indooroopilly

Indooroopilly

Phil dined on Wed, 3rd Aug 2016 (7)

Went on a very cold and windy night. Not enough large tables for a group seating. The staff did what they could to make us more comfortable, which was great. Mains were nice but the dessert was a bit disappointing. The nutella calzones were more like irregularly shaped doughy dumplings.

Corbett & Claude Indooroopilly

Indooroopilly

Phil dined on Wed, 27th Jul 2016 (7)

Food was okay. The staff making the food could have looked a bit more professional though. (He was in a casual tee and had headphones on listening to music) Just not the best image when its designed to be like an open kitchen in full view of public.

Restaurant Two

Brisbane CBD

Phil dined on Wed, 20th Jul 2016 (10)

Everything was made perfectly and plated beautifully. Also unique flavours I haven't tried before. Staff were very nice and attentive. Thank you for a wonderful night

Nikuya Japanese Restaurant & Yakiniku

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Tue, 28th Jun 2016 (10)

My first time here but definitely wont be my last. I've been to many Japanese BBQ buffets and this is the best. The quality of food, the service of the staff, and the interior design of the restaurant was simply excellent. Well done Nikuya

Chino's Restaurant & Bar

Woolloongabba

Phil dined on Sun, 12th Jun 2016 (9)

Second time coming here. I can easily say that this place serves the best pork cutlet I have ever tasted.

Chino's Restaurant & Bar

Woolloongabba

Wonderful little restaurant. Food came out very quick and service was fantastic. The pork cutlet is a must-try. So tender and juicy!

Always a fantastic place to visit. Staff are friendly and plates get cleared quickly which is great. Would love to go back again.

Terraces Restaurant

Dimmi Special. One of the best seafood buffets around. I loved the sauce that went with the cooked crab. Nice selection of icecream for dessert too

Delfinas Bistro

Phil dined on Sat, 14th May 2016 (10)

Brunch was amazing. Must try the lamb cutlets and the jam doughnuts!.

Delfinas Bistro

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Fri, 6th May 2016 (6)

The food was a bit on the dearer side, although we had the 50% dimmi deal which made it okay. The food was quite nice

Samphire Bites

Surfers Paradise

Phil dined on Tue, 19th Apr 2016 (7)

Went with the 50% offer. Dish sizes were very small. My friend and I shared 4 main dishes together and was still not satisfied. Food quality was excellent though.

Paddington Deli & Epicerie

N3 Tapas Bar

Main Beach

Phil dined on Mon, 29th Feb 2016 (9)

The food they serve are quite different from what you would usually get elsewhere. I like how they are experimenting on their dishes. Waitress was super friendly and inviting. Can not wait to come back again.

SIN VIDA Mexican

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Sun, 28th Feb 2016 (9)

Very nice place to have a dinner with family or friends and sharing the meal together. Would definitely recommend the tacos (especially the tuna one!)

French Martini

South Bank

Phil dined on Mon, 15th Feb 2016 (10)

Everything served was delicious. Serving size for the mains was not enough though.

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Phil dined on Tue, 2nd Feb 2016 (9)

It was a humid night so it was quite uncomfortable without air-conditioning. Overall the food was okay and the service was excellent.

Moda Restaurant

Brisbane CBD

Phil dined on Mon, 25th Jan 2016 (10)

Food and service were perfect. Chef came out to greet us and to check if everything was to our liking. Will definitely return!

Asana

Steak with bone marrow is definitely worth a try. Food came out surprisingly quick and service was excellent. No faults whatsoever. Will definitely be back

Colle Rosso Ristorante Italiano

Red Hill

Phil dined on Wed, 2nd Dec 2015 (8)

We had the pizza special which had a spinach base, and it was fantastic. Wish there was more parking round the back though.

Bourbon Street

South Brisbane

Phil dined on Wed, 18th Nov 2015 (6)

The staff were rushed the whole night. I think maybe hire another runner? Food was okay but not great.

NEST Restaurant and Bar

Brisbane

Phil dined on Tue, 17th Nov 2015 (9)

Duck salad was amazing. Food came out a little on the slow side. Didn't feel there were enough staff and this was with half the tables filled in the restaurant.

The Institution Gastro Ale House

Surfers Paradise

Phil dined on Sun, 15th Nov 2015 (9)

Steak was cooked perfectly. Meatballs were a bit on the expensive side because you only get 3 of them, but they tasted fantastic. The crepe and the pineapple dessert was also very nice. Also, a really nice spot for a restaurant

Bella Cosi

Chermside

Phil dined on Tue, 27th Oct 2015 (8)

Lovely little place. The lamb rump was overcooked but they happily replaced it for us. Spaghetti bolognese was a bit dry (not enough sauce). The mushroom risotto was very nice. They had a mango sorbet that is a MUST try.

Capri Cafe Bar

Fortitude Valley

Phil dined on Thu, 22nd Oct 2015 (7)

Food was okay. Staff were friendly. The food took slightly longer than expected.

Ruggers Restaurant

Albion

Phil dined on Thu, 20th Aug 2015 (9)

Food was nicely prepared and nicely portioned too. The waitress was super friendly and kept coming back to check on us or refill our water. The restaurant can do with a bit more lighting though, especially with the ceiling painted black.

Ruggers Restaurant

Albion

Phil dined on Sat, 15th Aug 2015 (9)

Beautiful spot for breakfast. Staff were friendly and made sure we were nice and comfortable. Food was also delicious.
