    Great service, nice atmosphere and comfortable seating. Had the gnocchi which was splendid, the waitress couldn’t have been nicer and friendlier and contributed to a good night. Highly recommend.

    Lovely food and stunning space. Training new staff on a Saturday evening was weird. Had a lot of service staff but water glasses and decantered wine needed prompting to be refilled.

    A great find! Five star service and the food is superb. Amazing selection of meat dishes as the dry age and cure their own meats. Not for vegans/ vegetarians... A carnivores paradise

    The food was good but portions were quite small for the price that we paid. Service was excellent and the restaurant had a lovely ambience. Would I go back? Not really as I prefer a more hearty meal.

    Nice food, and like the shared plates. Good service. Nice to have had a table where we could watch the kitchen. Have been before and will go again.

    The service was amazing! Very friendly staff! The food mediocre! Two of us had the beef which was so sinewy and chewy we couldn’t cut it or swallow it! Flavour was good but meat was inedible!

How to get to the restaurant

344 Sandgate Road, 4010, Albion (QLD), Australia

About the restaurant

‘From farm to plate'

‘Vaquero' in Spanish translates to the horseback mounted cattle herder. In the 1500s, the Spanish brought the vaquero to Mexico. This influenced the cuisine, which brought the importance of livestock to their dishes. In Albion is Vaquero Dining, a place for relaxation and good food. The menu is made to be shared between friends and family. They pride themselves on the ‘farm to plate' ethic, where the best ingredients are sourced. And they are only sourced through farmers that utilise sustainable, organic and socially conscious methods. Vaquero Dining exudes sophistication and elegance in every dish.

Best dish: Beef Of The Day, Wagyu Ham, Salt Baked Celeriac, Black Garlic Porcini Salt (GF).
