The place definitely exceeded our expectations. I have booked a table of two for my partner’s birthday. The service was excellent, and the food was extremely enjoyable and flavourful. We were absolutely charmed by the interior as there are not many places in Brisbane that have such a unique, magnificent atmosphere. Would definitely recommend the place!

I recently went here for dinner and the place is interesting, decor was really nice and my waitress was fantastic. The issue was the size of all the portions of food or lack of food. Tasted great but for what they charge should have been full sized plates, wouldn’t recommend or go back.

We went to deer duck bristro as a group of three for what was supposed to be a fancy meal to celebrate a special occasion. The atmosphere was bleak, our waitress lacking knowledge of the dishes and the food.. well below average for the price we paid. My partner is a fine dining chef and we hadn't had the chance... More

What a terrific surprise... a spur of the minute booking lead to a night of excellent food( we enjoyed a 7 course degustation with matching wines), attentive, delightful service and cosy decor. The only negative I can offer is that this is much more than a bistro . The night was even more impressive that e learnt that the Restuarant... More

A bistro is "a small, modest, European Style restaurant or cafe".That description does not describe this restaurant. The decor is rich throughout a network of small rooms. It was a mixture of French Parisian and English Aristocratic styles, with subdued lighting; quite unique. So far so good. The aim of this establishment is a fine dining experience, not a bistro...

We had the degustation menu and the food was delicious and the service was excellent. It does however take some time when the restaurant is busy. But if you are not in a rush and enjoy food, this restaurant should definitely be in your list.

Had lunch with a friend - the meals were incredibly small - I'm not sure if that was because we were there on a Groupon lunch or not. I had pork belly and it was barely bigger than a 50 cent piece. My friend had duck. We both had scallops - they were small, two, and her's were delicious and... More

I came here for dinner with my boyfriend! When we stepped in we were already impressed by the furniture and the looks of it! We chose the 7-course degustation and it was the best! We will definitely return and would recommend to everyone!! Thank you for the special Dinner @ Deer Duck Team!

We were a party of six and were provided with an intimate private room which had fantastic acoustics. Unfortunately, that is the only positive for our experience. On weekends you can only order the degustation menu. We chose the 7 course (which equated to 7 tablespoons of food) for $100. We were laughing at the huge bowl we were presented... More

First of all this restaurant has amazing decor and atmosphere. You really do feel like you're going back in time to eat. My husband and I came with a living social coupon and I have been wanting to try this place for a while. I wasn't very impressed with the food. Most of the meats were sous vide and to... More

A place where the old world of beautiful french chairs, lamps and gold glamour is paired with an eclectic music ambience, all turned upside down by amazing modern dishes or a stylish pasta or even risotto. Well-priced with plenty of personality.
