My sister and I really enjoyed our lunch at Moda before going to the cinema. I have been yo Moda several times before and the food is always delicious. We particularly enjoyed the Victorian asparagus with hazelnuts and quail eggs and the market fish with fennel salad. Lovely service as always! Will definitely be back again.
Best lay back tapas restaurant in Brisbane. Staff are so welcoming and fun. Food is delicious as we grazed slowly through most of the menu for a very long lunch before Origin game 3. Love the location and the excellent service. Have found this little gem near Caxton Street. We have been back every time we have been for the Magic Round or a game in Suncorp Stadium since we found this restaurant in 2020.
We visited Moda restaurant for the first time and we were pleasantly surprised how wonderful everything was. The service was excellent as were the flavours of each dish. We had the banquet meal, which included 6 Tapes of the Chef's choice. One of the meals was a lamb roast which was very tender and tasty. My husband and I would highly recommend it and we would definitely return again.

Lovely building with a great atmosphere and charm. Location was easy to find and parking was simple and close. Staff were very warm and friendly. A few drink orders mixed up, but the food was fantastic and plenty of it. We sat at the Chef's table with our party of 12 and enjoyed the Premium Javier's table experience. So much food - but the real stand outs for me was the Artichoke soup and the tomahawk steak - absolutely delicious. Thank you all at Moda for an unforgettable experience.
We went there for my birthday dinner. Beautiful food. Really wonderful with a variety that would suit anyone. All delicious. Very good service. And of course the Spanish wines were perfect. I recommend just getting by the glass so you can try different ones. We look forward to going there again.
My girlfriend and I had a great experience dining at Moda Restaurant. We had the $74pp Moda Tapas Banquet and every dish including dessert was delicious. It was a busy Friday night but service was excellent and very fast. The waiter was very friendly.
The experience was even greater being able to sit by the kitchen and being served by Chef Javier himself. He was very kind and we appreciated how he took the time to serve us each dish as well as explain each element. We appreciate how special he made us feel.
We will certainly be back sometime soon and will be recommending this restaurant to family and friends!
Wonderful staff, fabulous food, great atmosphere. Couldn't ask for anything more! We enjoyed the luscious banquet which was ample food and great value. It enabled us to sample most of the menu, so now I know exactly what I want to order next time - well at least I've narrowed it down to half a dozen or so dishes! Thank you very much to the brilliant servers who were attentive and charming - you all helped make it a delightful evening. We look forward to our next visit.
I recently held my 50th birthday at Moda and it truly was a unique, personal and intimate experience. My guests loved the atmosphere (private dining room), food and the two staff members (Cristian & Mathilde) who personally looked after us. The Chef (Josh) did a wonderful job of preparing the Javier's Table Experience menu and the wines were paired well with the courses. The Events Manager (Juliette) was thorough and patient with my requests. Regular communication (both personal and via email) and attention to detail resulted in my night being a special one. It was a huge success! Thank you Moda team! xx
Loved our dinner at Moda! The service and friendly staff were phenomenal. We had the Javier’s table experience and it did not disappoint. The vegetables tasted like they were true backyard vegetables - soo tasty. Everything we tried was such a delicious combination. The location was great too. We could park and not worry about getting into the city. Lastly what a treat to be personally thanked by the head chef himself on our way out. Thanks for an amazing experience!!
Excellent food and brilliant service. No complaints I can think of whatsoever.
Open kitchen. You can watch the chefs prepare and cook the dishes. Huge selection of wine & alcoholic beverages. There's also a bar if you only want to drink & perhaps have tapas. The restaurant changes their menu quite regularly & seasonally. It's made with love and passion. Very busy and recommend making a booking just in case as there are huge gatherings & parties there regularly. Staff are amazing and they keep checking and ensuring we are happy with our meals and if there is anything you need they are more than happy to accommodate. Parking is super convenient too. Free 2 hour parking in the complex - little shopping mall. So much more convenient than when there were in the city hub near the Botanical Gardens. opposite the hotel I cannot remember the name.
Came in for dinner on a Tuesday night, and the food, vibe and service was simply amazing. We had 6 tapas to share in-between 3 of us and every dish was well presented and mouth watering. We were recommended a Spanish wine that went perfectly with our food. The staff were all super friendly. I highly recommend. We will be back.
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.
