Food menu, quality, quantity was good although too expensive esp when compared to say the "Rustic Olive" at Redcliffe but also to many others. The real problem was the wine list; way too expensive, I'd like to say 'criminally expensive'. And I'm not sure the wine quality was there either. When a complaint about that was raised, the waiter gave short shrift to it, instead of responding that the comment/ complaint would be taken seriously and passed on to management.
Lovely place to go. Food was really good though the portions are small.
We love this place - imaginative modern Spanish food, so tasty and well executed with flair. It has the buzz you want on a night out, and the team also have heaps of energy. The service is very professional and personable - Chris has a delightful personality and made us feel special on our night out. The Josper Roasted Scallops were the standout and the grilled WA octopus were also delicious. Go mid-week and they offer well priced options.
The food was sensational and the staff were so knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely on our list to come back and enjoy again.
This is Brisbane’s best kept secret. Didn’t realise it was here under our noses all this time. Wonderful service and food. Lovely surroundings. Lovely for a special night out. We are indoors on this occasion and we’ll ask to eat al fresco next time to compare! Lovely!
One of my favourite restaurants. Always consistent, friendly service and great food. A must try.
Food is very high quality with much attention to detail, great flavours and impeccably presented. Staff are very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Great ambience, lively but not too noisy.
Been now 5 or 6 times and hasn't disappointed, only issue was it was very loud Thursday and harder to sit relax & talk
Awesome, as usual. Been going there for 4 years now. Never ceases to amaze me with the quality of food.
Very nice ambiance, food and service, I would go there again
Always have a great experience here, I have been on multiple occassions and each and every time the food is delicious and service excellent.
thanks for making each night a great experience!
We had a great dinner as always. I was a little surprised at the small range of options for main meals on the latest menu. Last time we were there I think there were more. But my Spanish mackerel was really nice and the sides were excellent.
Sadly Vaquero isn't what it used to be. The food was average and the charcuterie board was a sad shadow of it's former glory. No pate or terrine to be found just a few slices of meat and some depressing pickles vegetables. We won't be going back.
Some of the food was excellent, e.g. the croquet of the day. All of the food was very good. The service was equal to any fine dining experience we have had. We tipped $20 as a mark of our respect and gratitude. Our waiter, whose name I wish I could remember, was very professional and reminded us of some of the best staff we have experienced around the world.
What a find! The food was amazing and overall exceptional value. Thank you we will be back.
Delicious food, every dish exceeded expectations.
Atmosphere always very good. Service was excellent. Food possibly the fish not so great this time. Maybe a bit pricey but still great.
A wonderful fine dining experience. Walk beyond the Albion Butchery through their secret entrance into a beautiful bar and restaurant. Have been many time to this establishment and will return again. The food and service is excellent.
Hidden gem in Albion with amazing food and decor. Wine list is brilliant too, cocktails are great.
Staff are friendly, I love that they explain each dish as it's brought out. Loved the view of the kitchen too. The food is very good, was a little surprised the staff didn't suggest any sides to us when we ordered our mains, we probably did need them as the main plates don't come with a lot. But hey, room for dessert right?
Overall it is very good and we will 100% go back.
Delicious food, amazing service!! Can’t wait to go back again!
We had a lovely time, food was great as always, thank you
Fantastic food and ambiance. Never disappoints.
Wednesday night very quiet but food was very good, attentive service but not overbearing.
The waiter was really attentive, however, the food was a disappointment. We had to wait ages for our main course to arrive and then the food was pretty ordinary when it came.
The squid was burnt, the ribs were chewy and the mackerel was cold.
Will not be returning.
Love the private almost secretive entry into a fine dining experience. Vibe and music of restaurant was romantic, meals and service were perfect. Wonderful experience thank you
Third time to Vaquero and we always enjoy the restaurant, food and service. It's a local favourite.
We've come here a bunch of times and love it. Unfortunately we had to leave as soon as we'd ordered but the staff were so understanding and forgiving, they packed our charcuterie up for us to take home. Food is brilliant, staff are brilliant, ambience brilliant.
Our first time to Vaquero, they did not disappoint and I will definitely be back.
Worth a visit. The staff are always attentive and prompt. Great for both casual togethers and that 'special' night.
This is absolutely our favorite restaurant in Brisbane. Food and service are amazing, the decor and ambiance are incredible. Love it!
The scallops and the croquette where absolutely delicious
The pumpkin was A great accompaniment to the mains
And to finish the sorbet was a great suggestion
Great food and greatly enjoyed it and would recommend
Outstanding hidden gem in Albion. Venue was fantastic, superb food and wine was wonderful. Highly recommended.
Food was incredibly well presented and delicious. A great atmosphere and the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. While I would have liked a previous menu option to still be available for our booking, the fact that they change their menu regularly keeps it interesting, and we still had a really great experience.
Absolutely faultless food & drinks, one of my favourite places in Brisbane! Such an intimate, beautiful neighbourhood gem!
A limited menu for dinner. The beef was very chewy, not to the standard expected from a meat provider. The noise level was so high that conversation at our table was difficult
One of our all time favourites and a regular restaurant for date night
The food was amazing! the sauces made all the dishes stand out
been a few times now and the food is always excellent, took the Vegan daughter-in-law and the chef accommodated her with a special menu,
