The Stranger's Dining experience was fabulous from the moment we walked into the Parliamentary Annexe. Everyone who greeted us were professional and friendly. Annabelle and Lachlan were our waiters and were very friendly, attentive, but not overly so. The food was delicious, this was the first day of a new menu and each course we had was superb. Would highly recommend for a special dining experience.


The whole evening was just so special. We felt like we were being totally spoilt. Visiting the Lucinda Bar first is a must, then you are escorted to your table by the attentive waiters. The food is sublime - just mouth-watering! This is a beautiful venue, perfect for a special occasion.


A hidden gem in Brisbane and a lovely dining experience. The food was fabulous, all local Queensland produce and so were the wines. The service from the staff was excellent. Thoroughly recommended.


Really enjoyed our experience at Strangers. Our 3 course lunch was very nice. Service was really good. We then enjoyed the free tour of Parliament House. It is a must do in Brisbane. Thank you our wait staff that made the experience memorable!

I cannot fault this restaurant. Have been going for an about 4 years. Such a hidden gem. The use of indigenous and locally grown ingredients are always a pleasure to try. The staff are superb- cannot fault them. We normally have lunch but this was our first dinner and we had a ball. The staff were just delightful to my little six year old. Thank you again team!


An amazing experience with 5 course taste menu and matching wines. The restaurant staff also facilitated our Parliament House tour.
