We had a great family lunch … tapas style plates which were all very tasty and quite generous portions for tapas … service was excellent and the outlook from our upstairs window table was great … the few cocktails that we ordered were excellent… highly recommend

Food and service were both very good. A little bit pricey for some of the dishes but overall a good experience.

Service a little slow & a few errors with our order, but that’s kind of to be expected after 3 months of lockdown & straight into busy services! Overall a really fun night & yummy food! Thank you!
(Would love to see an alcohol free beer on the menu)

Music was good but very loud couldn’t hear what staff were saying. Had a dish we have had 3times before it was very different and not very enjoyable. Starter was good.

After beinging in lockdown for so long, this was a terrible dining experience. We had the feast and every course was bland, tasteless or just made no sense.
My wife had a hair in one of her courses and a dirty glass. My glass was chipped.
We wont be going back.

Great night! Cannot fault this place. Has all the ingredients needed for a favourite restaurant. Staff are always so friendly, food is amazing and atmosphere and surrounds just right. We asked last minute if we could fit another person on our table and the staff took the time in their busy night to do a head count upstairs to ensure they could help and still comply with Covid restrictions. Wonderful service.

Really disappointing, felt rushed out of there, several items we wanted to order were out, food was just ok but we were very sorry we chose this venue for a very rare night out without our kids as it just felt like a slap stick get us in and out environment and we left after 1 hour to go somewhere else and try to salvage the night.

Very disappointed. Love South American food and this was awful. There was not one course that was nice to eat. Very expensive for such a poor experience.

Do not eat anything during the day before you go to Frederico's. Servings are large and tremendous value. Quality of food is outstanding. The music could be a little lower in volume but overall a great experience.

A wide variety of choice for GF foodies or anyone who likes tapas menus. Upstairs you get a nice view of Brisbane Water. Friendly service.

Disappointed in the quality of food. Portion sizes weren’t reflected in the price. Felt that some of the dishes were swimming in liquid like the calamari, which was over cooked and despite the scorch marks it wasn’t chargrilled but poached and tough. It may have been our menu choices but we felt that the same sauce was used in each of the tapas plates and it lacked variety.
Overall, a great spot with a nice vibe, looks like it’s great for a few drinks but I wouldn’t come back here again unfortunately for the food. Staff were a delight.

Service was amazing. Some dishes were way too spicy and although I understand everyone has a different tolerance I could not really appreciate the taste of the paella as a result.

We found the staff quite rude. We were asked upon sitting down if we wanted table or sparkling water and we said table water. Then an older lady came over and put sparkling water down and we told her we asked for tap. We saw her in the mirror make a comment to another staff member and look towards us. Then at the end we got our Bill to which we had been charged $5 for sparkling water and we told the girl we didn’t order this and it seemed like such a big inconvenience to the girl to adjust the bill. We then again saw her in the mirror make a comment to a younger boy staff member towards us. We were made to feel extremely uncomfortable the whole night and as a result made the experience a negative one which is a shame because the food was very good

Nice food but didnt follow through with whats promised on the website. Staff seemed more interested in each other than the customers. My Twins turned 16 and this was the place they picked plus i put that in the booking but no mention made by staff so why ask the question in the booking???
