Specially "Lobster Thermidor" was delicious. Not big size but rich & tasty thermidor sauce. Not many restaurant in Brisbane have this dish and we enjoyed very much. And "Michael's Special", panko...

Dear Dave Rhonda B, Thank you for your review. Please allow me to once again apologise for the service issues you experienced on your last visit.

Lobster, lobster lobster, so delicious. We had an amazing dinner of whole lobster at a great price. For starters we had scallops and oysters cooked beautifully followed by lobster Thermidor the sauce was creamy with a subtle hit of mustard and brandy and big enough to satisfy a grown man.

Extremely enjoyable, beautifully cooked lobster and seafood marinara dishes and the desserts were delicious. The service was professional and attentive without being 'in your face'. Prices were reasonable for an upmarket restaurant.

We all had a wonderful Lobster themed lunch. The service was very accommodating and well versed in the Wine List options. It was a hot day and the A/C worked kept us all cool. The newly updated restaurant décor is comfortable.
