    Limited food options for dietary. Very small portions for share plates and quite expensive for the amount of food. Not great value for money.

    Excellent selection of gin and knowledgeable staff. Great service. Yummy food and the Lamb Cigars were one of the best food experiences I’ve had in a long time.

About the restaurant

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.
