A feeling of space greets you on entering the Fig Tree Restaurant at Waterloo Bay Hotel.

The openness is apparent in the contemporary dining room.

The menu is extensive to suit those who like the traditional 'pub' steak or roast, fish 'n' chips or parmigiana for the teens, burgers for the big kids or a mix of scrumptious salads for those more health conscious. There are also starters or shares on offer with the oysters hard to go past.

An impressive lunch menu on the day included a choice of homemade quiche; beer battered barramundi or a homemade beef ragu. A roast of the day is on offer from Friday to Sunday. The specials lunch menus are great value at $14.90 with a drink purchase.

Taking time mid-week for lunch at the Waterloo was a perfect way to interrupt the working week, as was my choice of the 200 gram rump steak. The steak was juicy and full of succulent flavours, presented with an array of crisp, fresh vegetable and mashed potatoes and a choice of sauces.

My lunch companion chose the Pollo Mexicano salad and was presented with a colourful plate of spiced chicken breast, black beans, grilled corn, avocado, onion and coriander topped off with a green tomato dressing and accompanied by crispy fried corn tortillas. "Fresh corn not tinned' was her approving comment of the ample serving.

The Waterloo Bay Hotel having undergone a recent transformation with a focus on good value, fresh food and customer service, has been recognised as the 'Best Pub in Brisbane' by Triple M Brisbane radio listeners. Diners can choose to dine inside in the Fig Tree Restaurant or outdoors in the 'Beer Garden' which is perfect for the Queensland lifestyle to sit and enjoy a meal, a drink and to socialise with friends and family. There's live music each Sunday from 1pm.

The pub and restaurant is at 75 Berrima Street, just a short walk up from the Wynnum waterfront, itself a popular spot at weekends. A perfect opportunity to take a stroll and enjoy a meal and refreshments whilst on the Bay.
