A suggestion from our taxi driver, wonderful views of the bridge and the brisbane river, the lunch was excellent and very nice. The service was equally as good.

We stopped for drinks and thought this was the most energised place we'd seen in Brisbane on our visit. Full of people dressed to party on a Friday evening. The room and balcony was big and airy, with lots of seating outside, with outdoor heaters. We enjoyed some Pelorus before going on for dinner, loved people watching on the balcony... More

Great restaurant with a fantastic outlook of the Brisbane River and the Storey Bridge. The service from the waitstaff was very attentive - can't fault. The three of us thoroughly enjoyed our mains as well as the outstanding side dishes. A great venue for a business lunch.

We attended a wedding here recently, what a charming location, overlooking the Brisbane river. The evening dinner was in the restaurant downstairs. The food was of a very high caliber. The vegetarian options were very well thought out and the presentation was stylish. Great place, great food! I can highly recommend the Blackbird.

The food here was absolutely fantastic, some of the best we have had in Australia so far. We started with the seafood platter, which was divine and then had the wagyu steak special and the fish of the day (wahoo) with a side of creamed garlic greens. All of the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The cocktail and wine... More

New to Brisbane we took a punt and booked here. Had a fantastic meal and the oysters were to die for. Some of the flavors they put together were unexpected but absolutely worked. Great night out.

Came here to celebrate some birthdays and chose this as there were bookings available and I liked the look of the menu. Decor is a little bit quirky, staff were friendly and attentive but not overbearing. The food was amazing. We were a group of 4 and we ordered the fish of the day, steak, lamb and the swordfish. I...

Food and service was fabulous again, I guess that it why we keep coming back. We indulged on three courses and loved each and every bite. Great atmosphere, comfy seating and all in all an enjoyable evening out. Do yourself a favour and make a reservation, you won't be disappointed.
