    The food and service at The Golden Ox were faultless. Great fine dining!!! It's been 15+ years since our last meal there and it was every bit as wonderful as we remembered. Owners Nick and Virginia go out of their way to make all patrons feel welcomed and appreciated. Live background piano was pleasant. Great location, great food, great atmosphere, great people. We will definitely be going back there when visiting Redcliffe.

    Our interstate friends were particularly impressed, after we had recommended that we go there, and said that it had been a very long time since they had been to such a wonderful Restaurant.

    We are new to the area and eat out weekly. To us this is a hidden gem. After 2 visits we have now chosen the venue for the family to celebrate a 70th birthday with interstate visitors.

    Exceptional food - no water offered for the table - service could be a little more discreet.

    Food was ok but service was poor. Waited over 45 minutes between main course and desert with the reason for this delay apparently being that we had only ordered a main course and desert and so had an unused set of knives/forks on the table. The delay was dismissed by a mumbled explanation of sorts as multiple wait staff descended upon us to retrieve the offending cutlery. Service does not appear to be particularly well organised, whilst there seemed to be plenty of staff they were running in the restaurant which didn’t provide much confidence that anyone is in overall control. Food was ok, but main courses weren’t particularly hot. Paid a premium for Mother’s Day, rather underwhelmed by the overall experience and as a result value for money offered.

About the restaurant

Seafood so fresh it’s still wriggling Award-winning chefs head the team at the Golden Ox where for 35 years diners have been enjoying the immaculate food they prepare. Everything is made in house, including breads, pastries and the like, and with this kind of care you just know that there is going to be a special kind of detail in everything. If you like to eat earlier the evening then pop in and enjoy their special earlybird menu which is prepared for those wanting a quick bite, or stay a little later and enjoy the specialities they offer including the best of the Queensland meat, seafood and poultry producers. Splash out and attend the Wednesday night seafood degustation or the Thursday night Steak Spectacular which is run by head chef Peter Tzimas. It’s popular with the locals, so be sure to book ahead. The grounds are perfect for functions including weddings, and they are also just as happy to host a quick lunch. The staff here are keen to take care of you no matter the style of dining experience you are seeking. Best Dish: Golden Ox classic seafood platter
