    Great place to go for a pre theatre lunch. Food is good. Staff are friendly. Good selection for lunch. There is no decor but the proximity to QPAC makes this forgivable

    Didn't even get food after 1 hour, was late to show with hungry belly. Was not told about long wait. The menu looked nice but I will never know. More words

    Food is average. They did get us in and out in time for a show but main course of pork belly was bland and pork belly was cooked too quickly. Meaning there was tough meat, no crackling (? Put under grill) and fat layer very unpleasant.

    Although I’m not a resident of Brisbane, ‘Olio’ is one of my favourite restaurants to go for dinner when I DO visit the city!

    Paid $34 for two tiny pieces of pork belly. Fortunately I bought fries as I would have left starving. Would never order the pork belly again as it was terrible value for money.

    Just found the menu to be quite restrictive in its offerings. Think there were only 4-5 lunch options without sharing with others.

    The staff are very welcoming and attentive. They are very conscious of timing for QPAC shows. Menu choices are limited but the meals have always been delicious.

    THe food was great, the croquettes were salty, smoky and tasty, the Duck was perfectly cooked and the skin nicely rendered. The service was great, but the wait time for the food was a little slower than I expected given that we were going to a show. We still made it out in plenty of time though. I would have no issue in going back
