We love ti when we find anew and special place that stands out from the usual restaurant. This one equates with Two Small Rooms only with more romantic and secluded lighting and fitout. Great Ambience and the 5 course (short) degustation meal was just perfect. So that you know,a ll course are tasting plates only, however they are delectable and... More

We had " Hiramasa Kingfish " which visually so beautiful just like an fine art and very delicate flavour with nice herbs. " Slow Roasted Pork Belly " was very tasty and great combination with...

Dined at Deer Duck recently with friends to whom we had raved about it previously. Either management, ownership or staff have changed as it was not the Deer Duck we were used to. It still has great quirky decor with a warm and inviting atmosphere but service delivery has changed dramatically. The food was a good as always but staff... More

I have been there a couple of times and had mixed results- it depends on the mood of the serving staff - food is quant and a bit experiential- we have not rushed back

We chose this restaurant for my fathers 70th birthday celebration with a small group of 8. We had a private room which was a nice size for the number but was difficult to hear more than just the conversation next to you. I was not made aware when I booked that Saturday night is a choice of set menu's only.... More

It was great for our romantic dinner, settled into a quiet corner. I loved the eclectic decor of the place. Had the 9 course degustation, it was tasty and reasonably priced. Caters well for vegetarians also. The service was ok, but I think that was because there was only 2 staff and it was relatively busy, but I would go... More

The place definitely exceeded our expectations. I have booked a table of two for my partner’s birthday. The service was excellent, and the food was extremely enjoyable and flavourful. We were absolutely charmed by the interior as there are not many places in Brisbane that have such a unique, magnificent atmosphere. Would definitely recommend the place!

I recently went here for dinner and the place is interesting, decor was really nice and my waitress was fantastic. The issue was the size of all the portions of food or lack of food. Tasted great but for what they charge should have been full sized plates, wouldn’t recommend or go back.
