Not sure if the waitress was new but we were seated for 10-15 mins before having to get our own menus. We asked for water for the table 3 times then ended up going downstairs to the bar to get our own. ( there were only 3 other tables with people) Not long after we ordered drinks, she went on a meal break, the girl who was behind the bar took over running the food and was friendly and efficient. The food was tasty but not enough to make up for the service, might be back for a drink downstairs but will probably not dine there again. Bit disappointed really.
Staff were excellent when they were at your table however it took a long time to be served, order, and then the drinks were a long wait also. Maybe more staff, otherwise everything was amazing. Compliments to chef. Food was delicious and perfectly portioned ????????
Nice intimate place, and nice spin on food! Plenty of options for food and drink. Somewhat of a hidden gem. Recommended to go there as a couple or as a party.
Enjoyed my HBD night with my family. As always food and service are great. Thanks Matt for accomodating us on a busy time...
Excellent value for what you got. Dishes were healthy, exotic, full of fun ingrediemts. Service good, atmosphere really nice. We were there on a quiet evening but intend to return soon
Absolutely lovely, the waitress was really friendly and seated us in a quiet spot which we appreciated. The only sad thing was the dessert we wanted was unavailable, but everything was still really good.
The meals were disappointing
Very good experience, great gin selections and decent food. Great option for pre show at the Tivoli. Friendly staff and very helpful if it’s hard to choose what to drink
Great selection of gins and good quality food
Fantastic array of cocktails, both the drinks and food were on-point and the service was prompt with the waiters and waitresses offering incredible insight into the menu and drink recommendations. I definitely intend to return!
Fantastic meals which are very reasonably priced. The cocktails are awesome. Very knowledgeable staff and an enormous variety of Gins. Brilliant!
Beautiful food, attentive staff with excellent recommendations for food & drink choices.
Always good food and service.
Great very pleased, great bar staff
Feed me Thursday is Sensational!
Great atmosphere, service and food
Beautiful food. The Lamb cigars are a must. Cocktails a little expensive, but delicious. Bar staff who served me had terrible breath and took a very long time to serve us.
Awesome place, loved the atmosphere, the waiter and barman were perfect and helped us have wonderful cocktails and great choice of quality food :) I will certainly recommend and go back to that place!
Good place for catching up with friends over drinks!
Thanks for a nice meal

The perfect party spot!
Hold on to your pith helmets mates, and be transported back to a period of adventure and discovery! Welcome to Dutch Courage Officers’ Mess, a place where good food, good drinks and good times combine! Set over two stories, DC’s lower level is kitted out with vintage campaign furniture, hessian curtains and authentic safari touches.
The main bar is perfect for a drink with friends, and the large eatery has a gorgeous upmarket menu with everything from crispy fried duck & lamb shoulder tagine to share, to grilled meats such as 18 hour ras el hanout beef rib & Darling Downs goat shank. They’ve also got a smashing passionfruit crème brulee for dessert!
Savour your DC dining experience upstairs in the colonial inspired mezzanine which overlooks the main bar.
Best dish: spice-crusted salmon w/ red pepper puree, yoghurt, eggplant & tomato relish.
