“Great gem in the suburbs”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

An excellent evening in this small cafe/restaurant in the southwestern suburbs (Jindalee) of Brisbane, Australia. The food was great as was the service. A good variety of choices on the menu and the award-winning chef puts it altogether with a touch of class. Amount, preparation and presentation was first class. Our Beef Wellington was one of the best we have tasted (our son was a chef so we have had a few!)with fresh ingredients and the meat cooked to perfection (who needs a knife!). The Barista/Waiter was excellent in his attention, knowledge of the menu and recommendations. He was in charge of desserts which were also great! From the aroma and orders of the other guests, freshly ground and brewed coffee seems to be a speciality. This little gem is only 14 km from the centre of the city (or take the 450 Riverhills bus from Queens Street and a short walk) and well worth the trip. Mains are about $20-30 and good value.

“10 out of 10”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

What an incredible little eatery! Cold Saturday night in Brizvegas, well, for us, our bookings were confirmed and my choice of 2 set up tables inside but as there was a large birthday party happening I asked if it would be a problem to be seated outside. Not a problem at all said the cheery young lady and promptly set me up and moved the large gas heater over to our table and soon I was toasty warm. We went on the set menu for a voucher deal, but, again, you wouldn't know it and she said apart from the shared entrees, we could order anything off the menu. We shared a trio of dips, easily the best I've ever had in this popular category - 6 generous slices of evo drenched toasted ciabatta with balsamic oil, freshly made pate and dukkah ( in other establishments we've been served 3 stingey little slices of French bread so well done guys). our hearts were set on the pork belly and, oh yumm, served with smashed potatoes and a glorious dressing that I was too stuffed to try much of. The table next to ours had the beef Wellington and just the smell was enough to guarantee our return to try that own as well. Huge selection of made on premises desserts and we both opted for the salty caramel tort - again - WOW!!! You could actually TASTE the saltiness of the caramel and sublime crunchy base. There was a mystery topping, kinda butterscotchey, didn't ask, sometime you just have to enjoy every blissful bite. Well done girls, your service was fantastic and it was a great night, well be back

“always delicious”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We enjoyed another great night at the pepper lounge, it is BYO wine and offers diners a really pleasant atmosphere and great food. Our group of 6 ordered risottos, lamb, beef, fish and chicken. The meals were cooked to each person's requirements and beautifully presented. They have a good range of desserts and the best sticky date pudding I've had anywhere. This is a reasonably priced restaurant that serves quality meals.
