Most people would agree when paying premium prices you expect a high level of service. We visited Alchemy on Saturday night to celebrate a family member's birthday. Our table was located outdoors overlooking the river which was very pleasant however it was a case of out of sight, out of mind!!! We were seated for almost 45 minutes before our... More

Wonderful food and excellent service. A range of traditional dishes created with a modern twist and all beautifully presented. Best of all every dish tasted as delicious as it looked. I had the lamb and it surpassed my expectations for tenderness and flavour. A friend was blown away by the liquid nitrogen frozen desert experience. A bit of a wait... More

Hubbie and I visited Alchemy in October (with miss 8 and miss 3 due to babysitter cancellation) We were gratefully surprised at the wonderful attention staff gave our girls, we always try our best to keep them entertained so not to disturb other diners but the staffs special attention was great. We ordered a selection of all the entrées &... More

Very varied quality of things. Very nice people. Service strange with wine and food coming in in different order that did not make sense. Quite good starter, excellent main, poor desert.

We have to admit to being conflicted about Alchemy. The location, without question, is sublime - nobody can complain about dining on the river overlooking the Story Bridge. We enjoyed the degustation menu (six course). The meals were tasty, creative and a good fusion of flavours. The service by Yuni was excellent - we really enjoyed her banter, knowledge and... More

We had the desgustation in an intimate setting overlooking the lights of the Stort bridge. The food was immaculate with influences varying from Asian to European cuisine. 6 courses with matching wines and a nitro (liquid nitrogen) desert selection left us feeling stuffed but extremely satisfied. Would highly recommend this experience.

My husband and I booked a table at Alchemy for dinner to celebrate our 3rd wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable about the wines. We felt very welcome. We were sitted to a table overlooking the water and Brisbane bridge, very nice views. The degustation menu was delicious and the wines matched... More
