    Nice atmosphere and our waiter was nice. Our food took a while to come out but was tasty. I booked mentioning we would have a pram and they stuck us in a back corner, we couldn’t get the pram through. Would be nice if special notes were read and taken into consideration.

    Lack of attention to detail with menu. A bit amateurish.

    The venue is really dated. The floor is so greasy one guest slipped over. The meal has to be returned as the steak was not able to be cut and was chewy. Really disappointed as this was once a great venue. We raved about the restaurant to our guests who were shocked about the fact they did not have wines on the list and then gave such poor service as food. We made a 7 pm booking and were told we had to leave as they were closing and would not serve drinks or food after 8pm. They need to get it together as this was a extremely bad experience.

    I always walk past this restaurant and could see it had a pleasant vibe. Booked lunch for my family there and felt welcomed from the start, Good host and attentive waitresses. The food and drinks were tops. Fresh fish and reasonable prices. Nice ambiance and I cannot wait to go back. Thank you :)

    Always great food and service. We love going here whenever we are in Brisbane. The seafood platter for two is our favourite and the Grilled Barramundi is so good!

    We had the beetroot hummus salad, the seafood platter for two and the waffle ice cream. Food was fresh and delicious. The view overlooking the river was lovely. Slight wait for the food (around 25mins), which was expected as it was really busy. Most staff were smiling and helpful.

    I choose River Quay for my wife and I to go for my birthday lunch. We found things generally more that satisfactory however we were disappointed in that one of the reasons we went was to try the Moreton Bay Bug roles which were not available. We will try again soon

    The food was lovely, well done chefs. Strange it was counter service rather than table service. They ran out of cups?????? & gave us our 2nd coffee in takeaway cups. I have had lunch here a few times and the owner is a lovely guy who prides himself on pleasing customers. He would be disappointed with the organisation at breakfast (or lack of it). The outlook is superb & the place should be PACKED....but it wasn't.

    This is obviously a great location and the menu is excellent but a seafood restaurant really needs to ask customers how they want their fish cooked when they order items like tuna and swordfish steaks. There were 12 of us at dinner and a couple of them did comment that the fish was not cooked to their satisfaction. But the service was excellent and there were a few other minor issues - all of which related to the kitchen and not the service staff.

    Booking quick & easy. Confirmation email sent. Table waiting and service excellent: two were going to be late due to traffic jam and staff organised kids meals and drinks and mains arrived same time as late arrivals. Food very fresh and tasty and Sunday lunch ambience chilled and interesting. Band playing in the park opposite so great location. Will definitely be back.

    Great atmosphere next to the river 50 dollar reef and beef abit small for the money paid more like a 35 dollar meal at best. Mojitos were great! Really nice part of south bank that I actually didn't know existed.

    Was really excited to dine here as it was my Mother’s birthday and she was looking forward to seafood but it was a big disappointment. When we first arrived we were put at a table with maximum 4 seats when I booked a table for 7. We then ordered our entree’s and mains and asked if we could have everything come out at once. The entrees came out and then we waited almost 2 hours for our mains (we kept asking staff to check on our meals but they never came back with an update. We also ordered 2 paella’s but were told there was only enough for one, 30 minutes after we ordered we were then told there were actually no paella’s left. A long period of time passed after we had to re-order 2 mains to only be told that there is paella and it’s been cooked and is ready to come out (we were told we could still have them and they would be free of charge due to the stuff around) however we then waited about 30 minutes for one (not two) paella’s to come out, the staff tried charging us for the two paella’s. The food was great but not worth the wait and the staff were very disoriented, overall it was a disappointing experience.

    Food was good and came out in good time once we ordered. Unfortunately this place was let down by their appalling service at our arrival. Im not sure they really wanted us to be there. Really let down what could have been an amazing experience. On our never again list.

    The staff were lovely and they had great service. We arrived and our assigned table had 3 seats for a booking of 4. So they squished one in. 2 out of 4 chairs were squished up against a umbrella post and a tall plant pot so we had to sit on an angle. The table was also very small for 4 people. The view was amazing and that's the main reason we went. The food was okay and reasonably priced for location and views. Overall it was an okay experience but I probably won't go back but instead take a picnic to the green space in front.
