    My first time at Detour, and it is now top of my list for brilliant Brisbane restaurants. The food could not be faulted, it was sublime in quality, flavour and presentation. Our amazing wait person was warm, friendly, helpful and made us feel like the most important people in the restaurant, even though it was so busy.

    Service was not great last night. Usually it is much better. On arrival was told we needed to hurry up and order because we only had 1 hour because table was initially booked for 5PM. Table was never booked for 5PM was definitely 530. Waiter was nice but Clearly all staff were stressed and vibe was not great. No accomodation for vegetarians on the set menu.

    Food quality was hit and miss. We were extremely rushed to get out right on 90 minutes to the point of staff being rude and putting patrons on edge. Was our second visit and most likely will not return due to this second experience.

    The staff were lovely and the food was well prepared and delicious. The meals were very expensive though and upon looking at the receipt, they charge $5 for still water. It’s a hospitality requirement to serve tap water for free so this was a shock and should absolutely be changed.
