I came here for dinner during the week to catch up with a friend. It wasn't even busy, but we had to wait 45+ mins for our dinner to come out. By waiting this long, it made it seem like the food wasn't anything special....More

10% off for Accor members for lunch and dinner. Prices quite reasonable. Had fish and chips which was not oily and not the Basa fillets usually served. Found breakfast only satisfactory. Little variety and fruit not fresh.

Came here for breakfast, only buffet option was available. $29 per person. Pretty pricey for the food you are offered. Only 8 hot items, few juices, few fruits, few cereals. Fairly good for variety, venue seemed clean and well kept, staff friendly enough considering they...More

Large hotel chain street level restaurant. Sterile atmosphere. Pork belly and salad lovely...really nice light meal for a main with very interesting texture and taste in the salad. Service was eager but inexperienced.

I haven't eaten here but the coffee was great and the location is good for people-watching, reading the paper, and I'm sure the food must be good because they're always pretty busy. Close to Myer Centre and transport hub.

First night in Brisbane and had dinner here as it is located next door to the Sebel, where I was staying. I had grilled salmon with a salad which was overall somewhat uninspiring. The menu was limited on choices, but the drinks selection was better....More

Enjoyed dinner a few times during our 3 week stay at the Sebel. Excellent quality, a little pricey but worth it. I think the breakfast should be a little cheaper so inhouse guests don't wander to Coffee Club (like we did). The quality of the...More

Hi Judi, thanks for your review. We're sorry to hear that your experience was not up to our usual standard. Food on a hot buffet - especially eggs - will always become more cooked over time, though this is something that I agree our chefs...More
