The exquisite building of the Custom House standing on the bank of the Brisbane River now houses an excellent restaurant. A great place for lunch. We experienced friendly staff who were knowledgeable and served beautifully cooked meals. A definite place to go to.

What is the dress code for Customs House on a Saturday night? Would a man in a suit and tie be out of place? Or is it a bit more casual?

It is a bit more casual on. Saturday night. I would suggest just a jacket as the nights can be a bit fresh.
