Reviewed 28 November 2011

Could not fault the food in any way, the Pannetone bread & butter pudding was a dessert to remember! Good service, our glasses were always full, will be back for sure!

“still a special place”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

this is one of our local restaurant options. Cinco has always delivered for us on service and food quality. We have many choices within a short drive and whilst exploring many other places we find we keep coming back.

“OK food for a fine dining price”
Reviewed 26 June 2011

The service and dining room is good, very attentive waiting staff and tastefully and unpretentious interior. At $20 for a starter and $35-$40 for a main I was expecting food of a high standard. Having tried the duck confit and angus fillet the main issue was with poor seasoning. The accompaniments were also average. Not having salt and pepper on the table was disappointing. The desserts whilst satisfactory were also uninspiring for the price. There are better places in Brisbane to dine at a lower price.
