The food was outstanding and the service when we got it was good too. Only thing was we had to go looking twice. The waitress forgot to put in for one meal, corrected and apologised. Well done for owning the mistake and she was very nice.

Had a few drinks and a bite to eat on the way to the Powerhouse and loved the lively atmosphere. Will pop in for a drink there next time we're in the area.

For a recent birthday we chose Bitter Suite as the venue for a few friends and a low key afternoon celebration. We wanted an outside table with some good beer and wine and finger food to keep us fed. We found everything we wanted and more here. The staff are excellent and very helpful, the food and drinks arrived quickly... More

Had a evening meal and drinks here with other people attending a conference. The staff where very obliging and very helpful, A range of mainstream and boutique beers were available. The meal was well presented and prepared very nicely but if you are looking for a place that has large servings this is not it. Price range was moderate and... More

Limited lunch selection but interesting selection of tapas/small dishes. The pork burger was however below average, very meaty vs succulent and flavoursome and dusappointing. One of the group had the wings and did say they were tasty though. Quiet on a Sunday lunch, service was reasonable but no new farm buzz

Unfortunately we had an average breakfast experience here about a week ago. Food arrived cold and we only received half a piece of toast with the bacon and eggs. Service was a bit off, with both staff members providing a not so warm interaction. We used to come here often, but it seems to have slipped a bit. Might try... More

Hi, Thankyou for your feedback! Disappointing to see this as we pride ourselves in friendly service. Would love to have had the opportunity to rectify the breakfast on the day! I will pass this on to our team as they certainly would not have intended to make you feel this way. Hope to see you back here for another try!... More

Stumbled upon this place while visiting Brisbane. The Newfarm and extended areas is and has been the cool kids section of Brisbane for many years. The Bitter Suite has great food in a relaxed comfortable environment. I was meeting a friend and we sat for quite a while catching up after 17 years and we didn't feel rushed or hurried... More

I have found It challenging to find a good coffee in Brisbane but I was pleased to be served a delicious breakfast and fantastic latte this morning at Bitter Suite. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was lovely. Will return next time I'm in the area.

Fantastic service, lovely set menu and great atmosphere. Four of us had a lovely NYE dinner. Our waitress was wonderful and the meal was paced perfectly. The food was delicious and a well planned with starters of chicken wings and bread followed by duck linguine, pork and lamb with fries. The perfect food to pair with drinks on NYE.
