A new-ish asset to Brisbane's emerging laneway movement, The Survey Co. certainly ranks amongst the best 'hidden gems' in the city.
Greeted swiftly by attentive wait staff and directed to a central table with great views into the open kitchen, it wasn't long before a fine glass of the palette pleasing, Henshke Henry's Seven Shiraz Blend was in hand.
Despite not having an extensive menu, all menu items were attractively appetising. The Beef Sirloin served with a mouth watering lemon, mustard butter & potato was cooked to medium perfection. It was a pleasant surprise to see such a dish served in good size, which nowadays is somewhat of a rarity.
The Bouillabaisse was accompanied by a very tasty rouille (fancy aioli) and equally satisfying garlic buttered bread. A satisfying winter plate, leaving a great feeling of culinary contentment!
Not being able to resist the temptation of dessert, the Lavender Parfait with berries & candied lemon confirmed that The Survey Co. is one restaurant that will be on the repeat visit list. Good food, handsome interior and very reasonable prices for the high quality of food served.
