Little disappointed

Gerard's Bistro

Fortitude Valley

Great tasty spicy food, when you eat out you should choose somewhere that serves food you don’t cook at home and this is the place

Regatta Boatshed

Toowong

Diane dined on Fri, 13th Apr 2018 (6)

Very inconsistent with food quality, we’ve been dozens of times but probably won’t go again after our recent experience of tough grisly meat, cold vegetables and watery eggplant tacos

Diane dined on Wed, 1st May 2013 (5)

Never had a bad meal here - until this week! Beef Roast of the week was tough and gristly and no sauce. Very disappointing.

Lovely setting in winter in front of the fireplace or in summer on the verandah looking out at the mill and the beautiful gardens

The Lighthouse

Cleveland

Diane dined on Sat, 14th Apr 2012 (9)

Menu is quite varied suiting most tastes. The service was excellent and the view beautiful. Very relaxing looking out at the sea, listening to the birds. Would recommend.

Era Bistro

South Brisbane

Diane dined on Sat, 31st Mar 2012 (3)

Era was very disappointing! The Angus main was well cooked however the tomato fondue seemed rather lost on the plate. The lemon curd desert was pathetic! It came with 3 profiteroles that came straight from the fridge. The dish completely lacked any lemon curd! Presentation was poor,flavour non existent. The Creme Brulee was served with two shortbread biscuits with an excuse for a strawberry on top! The biscuits were completely out of place with the creme brulee. Places like Harveys now leave Era miles behind and out of date! Very poor.

Simpatico Bar Bistro

Paddington

Diane dined on Thu, 2nd Feb 2012 (9)

Food is of a high standard. Staff are attentive and friendly. Only negative would be that we had to move because of direct sun in face (blind could be installed), new table was very hot, air conditioner broken. Also sump smell at tables close to front door.
