Eves on the River, Teneriffe.

On a sunny Sunday autumn day in Brisbane there's no finer place to be than down by the river so that's where we went to celebrate a much loved mother's birthday.

Eves by the River has stood the test of time providing guests with more ten years of dining pleasure.  The rear terrace is enclosed from tough weather providing a large, relaxed dining space.  Inside it is a little more cosy.

Set back from the river by a wide grassy lawn studded with mature trees, palms and the odd sculpture, Eves is a family friendly destination for all ages.

The cuisine is modern Australian with menu choices and flavours that will suit most paletes, good service and well presented dishes.  I was impressed by the menu which not only clearly identifies vegetarian options but also dishes designed to be suitable for coeliacs.  There's also a glossary to explain some of the menu items.

Zucchini & Haloumi Rosti

Macadamia Crusted Baramundi

Duck & Porcini Ragu

Sumac lamb fillet

This is food designed to suit a non-demanding palate. You'll find the chilli is sparse and the garlic probably the same.  This is great when you want everyone, from grandma to the youngest child, to enjoy their meal.

Bottom line:  Go for the view and good company.
Best tip:  Parking here is difficult to find.  Allow extra time to find a spot and be prepared to walk.
