Immaculate vibes- my friends and I had an excellent night out at Queenies enjoying many of the small meals and a few cocktails! We loved how cosy our booth was, everything was bustling around us but we felt like we had our own space to chat and catch up.
Had to ask 3 times for my drink. Music was too loud from around 8pm and it got hard to have a decent chat
Really wanted to like Queenies but was super disappointed! The overall look is gorgeous, furniture and vibe is cool... however the food really lets them down. Menu was supposed to be a shared tasting plate kind of deal - the small plates arrived and while they were ok, it was nothing to rave about. Broccoli only had 2 pieces (tasted good but too small to share), fried chicken had good flavour... large plates were the biggest let down. The beef was overcooked and chewy (can honestly make a much better steak at home), & the salmon was flavourless + hard to share as it came on a broth and massive piece of salmon that lacked seasoning so we didn't finish. Overall very underwhelmed with the experience and not sure whether it's worth trying again. Probably a better place to share a drink at the bar rather than a sit down meal.
All very ģood, but music was TOO LOUD, had to shout to talk
Fabulous atmosphere and lovely staff. Great way to finish a week of work
Amazing, outstanding food, great ambience a must visit.
Great atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Excellent.
Great venue, good service and good food. Definitely recommend.
I love the way they subtly integrate bush foods with my Friday night.
Menu offers. a mix of casual but interesting and the atmosphere is always great.
Atmosphere good. Food very disappointing lacked flavour and presentation
Our dinner at Queenies was also our first time visiting the establishment. We had a great time, and will definitely head back there one day soon!
Great vibes and great food, highly recommend.
Food was great but service was absolutely appalling. Definitely needs to improve if we were to return.
Do yourself a favour. Go to Queenies - thank me later.
Fabulous place for dinner and drinks. Staff extremely attentive, offered advice on selections when asked. Looking forward to next time!
All that we expected. Had lunch at a nearby estate earlier in the day. Queenies is far better value. We’ll be back
every server is absolutely lovely and personable! i absolutely fell in love with the place, atmosphere, but it’s really the people working there - customer service facing - that made it such a phenomenal place!
Phenomenal Southside bar. Quirky vibe and excellent food! Could not recommend more.
I took a friend here for dinner as she hasn’t been to Canberra since she was a teenager. So much has changed and she loved the interiors of Queenies. The staff were very attentive and made sure we were looked after. Our only comment was the background music which in fact overtook our conversation. We struggled to hear ourselves talk. This would be the one factor that would prevent me going back again. But hopefully next time, it will be turned down as keen to come back again.
What a great experience. Shared plates of prawns, croquettes and chips. Great desserts of pavlova and semi Freddy. Nice wine selection and attentive staff.
Dreadful . Food was very unappealing . Looked very unappetising and tasted even worse . 2 if the plates were inedible. I think the staff were embarrassed to serve it . A refund was given which was good band staff pleasant enough, would not go back and would not recommend
Loved everything! Drinks, Food and Staff. We’ll be back.
A good vibe and a wide selection of drinks. Food is good, sharing plate, tapas style eating. Staff are knowledgable.
Queenies was great, there was a wide selection of vegan dishes and all were delicious, especially the eggplant fries. The cocktails were different but equally tasty. Service was friendly and attentive and the decor and ambiance was delightful
Great food! Lovely atmosphere!
Will definitely come back
Good service, great vibe, lovely cocktails and beautiful food
Food and service were excellent. Would recommend to anyone.
A fabulous treat. Amazing modern Australian food - the haloumi was something special. Loved the cocktail list too. Can't wait until next time.
Great service, good food, and a nice wine and cocktail selection. They have a private room for large groups.
Great night! Food was fantastic, except no non-diary desserts!
Food ok. Grilled prawns were mushy. No hot chocolate avail for non coffee drinkers, and no ice cream to offer an Affogato, so misses the Mark for a full service bar/restaurant.
Tasty, generous share plates, a good drinks menu, and great service.
Delicious food and cocktails and attentive staff.
Eggplant chips are defs the go!
Have had regular weekly bookings until recently, had about 6 weeks away and the food was average, too few staff and we had to keep asking if we could order food or drinks and plates were not cleared away until we made a point of piling them to one side. Staff looked unhappy and as always, flies were annoying. Won’t be rushing back.
Lovely old building good food and friendly service
Delicious fried chicken. Lovely setting. Delightful wine selection.
We loved our meal at Queenies. First of all we were welcomed in the friendliest manner and secondly the food was beyond delicious - wonderful flavours and generous portions.
We will definitely be going back on our next visit to Canberra.
Experience was very good overall. Food was delicious. Ambiance great and able to hear table conversation well. Drinks service was a little slow. Staff professional and friendly.
Queenies was a perfect place to meet and have a drink and chat with a few people. There was no noise or TV interference and great table service. Thanks Queenies, we’ll be back.
