    I was surprised .. thought the selection of art would be a lot more exciting, but it's located close to restaurants which makes it worthwhile  more »

    Bit hit and miss as the menu options are always changing to the themes of some of the gallery attractions. This can be both interesting and frustrating at times. For the most part, the coffee is good and there's usually ample seating and a nice view/atmosphere. The staff is generally polite if a little frazzled. On the other hand, the queues can get very long with long waiting times and, as this is a kid friendly/family friendly place, there are usually a lot of small children running about. Not the best place for an after gallery visit coffee but not the worst either.

    Very limited options and a long wait for food. I would expect a few more healthy options. Staff were lovely though. We ordered the share plate of charcoal chicken (lots of charcoal items on menu!) and a side of beans (which was yummy).

    A limited and expensive menu ruins the good views and relaxed atmosphere.

    Update: 07/2017 Went again and was disappointed again. We ordered the Pork Belly share platter which included a pear/apple sauce, roasted pears, pear chips, lentils and pork belly. If you were to eat with your eyes you'd be extremely satisfied. However, though the pork belly was cooked wonderfully it lacked seasoning. The lentils and roasted pears were both undercooked, and pear chips were soft and chewy, and the apple/pear sauce lacked any flavour. The side dish of sweet potatoes with aioli was good, but not good enough to save the day. ----- The service is fantastic with friendly staff. The view of the river and city skyline can't be beat. And that's kind what you're paying for. The menu looks promising, but fell flat. The Pork Fillet share platter I had was an imbalanced act: super sour plums, apple sauce lacking in flavour, and a pork fillet which was dry. The $8 side leaf salad was underwhelming for the price. I'm going to give this place another go (as I enjoy visting GOMA), so I'll update on how that goes.

    Pleasant outdoor settings overlooking a sleeping elephant and the mighty Brisbane River. Food is better than okay.
