    The food was delicious and ample and service was good. Both our mains the fish of the day and garlic prawns were very tasty. However, the ambience is lacking.

    Always a pleasure to dine at Goldfinch. Menu has plenty of variety and the food we ordered was lovely. The light open spaces make the restaurant an enjoyable experience.

    This time, the portion of the Portuguese prawn rice was reasonable and the staff who served us were excellent. Well done! The food is good value of money this time.

    We like the prawn Portuguese rice in this restaurant and nearly go every week to have it. The taste is good with decent size in the past. But for this visit, the rice portion was incredibly small. We advised the manager and he said customers complained the rice portion was too large and so they decreased the portion. And he said he would reflect our comment to the executive chef. We checked twice before we left but the manager did not follow up with the executive chef. I understand a business may need to cut down cost to make a profit but I would like an honest response instead of using other excuses to cover that. So even though the taste is good but with the current price, it is not value for money. Hope the management would seriously consider our comment rather than losing a loyal customer.

    All the meals come out pretty quickly. Obviously management has resolved the problem pointed out by previous diners m. Both the fish and steak of the day are very nice

    Meet and greet was slow, then we were asked to fill out contact tracing for 5 people, once started the staff member tried to rush us to follow them repeatedly, to the table, seperating us from our children. Food was very tasty but portions were small for what's advertised as a large plate. Drink service was slow. One order was fudged and took a further 20mins to arrive and was clearly rushed. 100 better places to eat than here within 1km.

    Absolutely beautiful setting, immediately felt relaxed when entering into the restaurant. Wait staff was also professional and quick to respond. However it took 40 minutes for our fried squid, fries and pizza to arrive and the restaurant wasn’t even half full. Food was also quite ordinary.

    Food tasted great, however the lamb was kind of a small serve for the price as a Main course. Waitress was polite and fun who make you felt welcomed.

    This little restaurant is very close to my workplace, unfortunately lunch was very disappointing (not because of the quality of the food) 4 of the 5 at our table were given a meal at the same time. The waitress forgot to place the 5th order, unfortunately by the time the 5th meal had arrived, 4 of us had finished and the 5th meal then arrived. It was very frustrating as the table of 10 that arrived at the time the 4 of us were served our meals actually received their meals at the same time our No. 5 received hers, seems communication between waitress and kitchen was very lacking. Not one of us will be in a hurry to return. Accidents happen, however we were not even offered a discount to apologise for the mistake. I personally think they should not have charged the 5th person for the mess up or at the very least apologized for the mistake?

    The restaurant has the appearance of wanting to be something special but it’s let down by a number of factors. The layout is split into two sides, one side being the cafe which is more open to the street and the restaurant is more closed in. However the main entrance to the restaurant side is next to a very loud bar, and it’s this noise that ruins the ambience of the restaurant, which mind you could be alleviated if the doors were closed instead of being left wide open. The staff seemed pleasant, but not attentive enough that we were left wanting, for example after we finished our main meals, we were left waiting for ages before some one came along to check on us to clear our table and check if we wanted dessert. It seems that staff at that time of the night were more concerned about setting up the tables for breakfast service in the morning than paying attention to the customers they had in the restaurant at the time. The food... wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t fantastic, it looked nice, some of what we had lacked flavour, the eggplant in the side dish was bitter, and the only stand out was the cauliflower side dish which we loved. Again, it has potential but tweaking is required and I would recommend that whoever is managing the restaurant have the all the dishes made on the menu for them to taste test and give feedback for dishes that aren’t quite working to bring them up from mediocrity to something special. In summary would we go back again, no, unless the mentioned issues were addressed, and again it has the capacity to be something special with fine tuning, but until then spend your money elsewhere.

    Would have been good as food was tasty and well presented, but there was a big gap between service of 3 mains and the remaining main and side. First served meals were tepid by the time the rest came out.

    Second time having dinner here within the week because it was so good. This time we ordered the prawns and the octopus for entree. I LOVE the prawns!! This is a must order. For mains I had the arancini, again another winning dish. We also had the vongole pasta and loved it too. Service was again friendly and engaging.

    I had dinner here twice and breakfast every morning while we were staying at the hotel. The food was delicious. I highly recommend the chicken lemon thyme with chickpeas. So, so good. The crispy chicken skin made it even better! Service was impeccable. Loved the corner table that was reserved for us. We also had the pizza, barramundi and the Zaatar cauliflower. I cannot fault anything. All the dishes we had was on point. Well done Goldfinch.

    Have been for lunch and it was fantastic. Came back this trip just for the Chocolate Fondant which was so yum. Great place to stop and relax and have a bite to eat or drink in the cbd. Great atmosphere and service.

About the restaurant

Goldfinch. An airy, light-filled space, a friendly green oasis away from the city’s hustle and bustle. Be enticed by the Pacific inspired Mediterranean dishes presented with casual sophistication. We invite you to relax with Brisbane’s best coffee, OR, step it up a notch with colourful cocktails, craft beers, premium wines and our distinctive service. We are Goldfinch.

Located just a stone’s throw from King George Square, Goldfinch is Brisbane’s ideal destination to escape the busy city and wind down. The restaurant offering at Goldfinch is equal parts comfortable and impressive, inspired by the seaside dining of the Mediterranean, and studded with unbeatable local produce. Seating 150, the lunch offering is designed to be accessible and crowd-pleasing, while dinner is a slightly elevated affair in terms of culinary focus and service. Passers-by are often tempted by the mouth-watering smell of the wood fired oven, turning out pizzas with the likes of Byron Bay sopressa, buffalo mozzarella, and basil, and irresistible flatbread with dukkah and tahini. Flexible enough to be enjoyed as share snacks, quick meals, several courses, or however diners choose, the Goldfinch menu accommodates dietary requirements and has something for every taste.
