Big brekky was fabulous. Others in our party enjoyed the corn fritters and QPO smash. Beautifully poached eggs. Great coffee. Friendly service.

My friend and I went here for breakfast today based on the reviews on here and we were not disappointed! Crispy corn fritters were divine! The service was friendly and the atmosphere relaxed! It was difficult to decide what to have as they all sounded so nice! Worth the visit for sure!

Unplanned catch up in Kew. Looking for good menu, good choice of wines and timely service. You can't go past QPO that has become an icon place to go near the Kew Junction.

Best chicken Parma you can get and the hot chocolate pudding is incredibly rich and delicious. The calamari is always tender and the seafood spaghetti with a hint of chili is a winner. Enjoy.

Having some time to kill before an appointment, my wife and I headed to QPO. It's dead centre in the junction, so very easy to find. The food here is outstanding; the breakfasts were incredibly tasty and generously sized. The attention to detail was utterly incredibly, with PERFECTLY poached eggs and harmonious flavours throughout. The presentation was also beautiful, and... More

We ate dinner here as a party of 12 and had no reservation beforehand. Drinks and food were quick to come out and were of high quality. I can personally recommend the calamari and chorizo salad but the other stand outs were the enormous parmigiana and crab burger. One minor negative, the window blinds failed to block out the sun...

I visit this restaurant regularly with friends and family for brunch, afternoon tea and dinner. The food and drinks are great, the ambience good and the staff friendly and accommodating. I have also attended a business function there. I recommend this restaurant without any reservation.
