I have been to Moda many times and yes the food is always so surprising, wonderful flavours and working so well together but it is the service, professional, yet really friendly personal staff, that keep bringing us back. I have had business lunches, family dinners and just my wife and I. It seems to just be the go to place for something just a bit special - and their functions WOW
The tapas at Moda never disappoints. This place is consistently excellent. This time we shared five different types of tapas of our choice and everything was outstanding. The crab with mango was exceptional. It was so fresh and full of the flavour of summer in Queensland. The seafood paella was also outstanding. In fact it is often difficult to choose what we like best here because everything is so good. The staff are all very well drilled but also relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable about their menu. Javier has been there every time we have dined here, which is always wonderful to see. This is a Brisbane classic and if you haven't had tapas here, you are missing out on a great dining experience.
From arrival, the staff were warm and friendly and the service amazing, they could not do enough to accommodate our large group. The food was as interesting as it was delicious. The whole experience was wonderful and I cannot recommend Moda Restaurant highly enough.

Tuesday 4:30pm till late & Wednesday to Saturday 1130 till late
We found this place by accident and is now our favourite restaurant. The staff are fantastic and the service is exceptional. Francois is delightful and so warn and welcoming. We were honoured to sit up at the chefs table and spoke with Javier, who was more than happy to have a chat and explain his dishes. It was quite a cultural experience.
Could not recommend this place more!!!
Great tapas! We got the banquet option and every dish was amazing. They wouldn’t have been dishes we ordered, so it was a good way to explore different dishes. They also catered for my one vegetarian friend very easily. Would highly recommend and definitely go again!
Love it. Service has always been excellent and I never get to try everything I want. I haven't loved every dish and there are dishes I have tried and wouldn't order again, but honestly I think that has just come down to taste. I am unlikely to find any high quality restaurant where I like everything. I have always found the meals to be a little adventure and even when they are not my kind of flavour I enjoy discovering what the kitchen is delivering. Service always top notch and can recommend the early sitting from 4.30pm as obviously the more attention that can be afforded to you, the better your experience will be.
Beautiful food and awesome service. We enjoyed the 6 tapas banquet and every dish was delicious. They catered so well for dietary requirements without question. Service was very attentive and our server in particular was a standout. Will definitely be back, so many other dishes to try!
Phenomenal experience. Top notch food, atmosphere, and wait staff. Have been here multiple times, and every time is an amazing experience all around. I always take my friends here, as the food is always superb. Definitely a lifetime customer .The ambiance is very welcoming and François is always charming and on point ! while Chef Javier works his magic his open front kitchen. It's simply amazing to watch how they create all their dishes in view for all to see. The wine list wide and extensive while the deserts are delicious and out of this world. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and make great recommendations. Love this place and will continue to visit.
Dinned at Moda Tapas recently and what a great experience. We decided on the 6 Tapas Banquet, and it was a great choice. The service provided by Trent and the crew was first rate. Will defiantly be visiting again on our next trip to Brisbane.
Just paid a visit here. It is such a unique experience! Firstly, 5 star plus service. High quality service even for busy Friday peak hours.
The food is delicious and very unique. You can really tell the chef paid loads of effort on the details for each dish. For example, the octopus salad was served with persimmon(right on season) plus multiple herbs and leaves, every taste is different! Little quail egg on top of the black pudding was cooked perfectly - the yolk is precisely jelly-like texture, neither liquid-ish nor firm. The marshmallow in the dessert is far more than a piece of fluffy sugar- with crispy caramel on top and layers of flavours inside.
The wine / beer list are amazing too, such a nice combination of Australian and International products.
I must admit tapas/Spanish is not our regular choice of dining. But we will definitely visit again and again.
Wow. Currently enjoying a wine dinner here.
Wow. Wonderful food matched with some great wines from around the world.
Went to Moda for a Greg Cooley wine lunch. About 50 people. Had a really wonderful time. Food was spectular, great service, in an interestingly restored old building. Greg's wines are terrific and were well matched to the food.
We had dinner here and the experience was the type you would want everywhere you go. Francois greeted us at the door with a beaming smile and you could tell he was genuinely happy to welcome us into his restaurant.
Service: Exceptional, warming, and professional. The staff made us feel so welcome. They explained all the dishes including drinks in detail and they always had smiles in their faces. Ambience... 👌
Food: Compliments to the chefs! Delightful, delicious, elegant, full of flavour, all round sensational. Could not criticise a single part of it.
Thank you to everyone who made our experience a pleasant one!
We booked a table of 10 and chose the Javier's banquet option - food was absolutely outstanding and very generous serving size. We were a tricky group with a few food allergies too, and they were so accommodating. The service was impeccable. I've since gone back with a smaller group and the service and food again were faultless. I would absolutely recommend!
Spotless service! Trent was a true legend with detailed explanations of our dishes (did the 55 set menu) and had the right drink to suggest for every stage of the meal. Keen to be back and explore the rest of the menu. Drinks list could be a bit more comprehensive, to the level of the food offer.
A beautiful contemporary open space with an open style kitchen. Sophisticated but warm and inviting. Javier’s tapas for lunch was the perfect choice for us, 6 tapas fresh tasty well balanced food with an obvious focus on sourcing high quality produce. Service professional and attentive, we thoroughly enjoyed the full experience.
The food was fresh and refreshing. The award winning chefs gave a home-made feeling using the best quality ingredients. The restaurant also offers various types of drinks, they serve one of the best wines in the region. Excellent for gluten free food for people with coeliac disease.
Thee service was of very high quality. Friendly and efficient.
Because of the brilliant atmosphere and delicious food service, I highly recommend going to the Moda restaurant.
