Taking inspiration from L’Aquitaine in France, Aquitaine Brasserie is a fine dining restaurant bringing some French class to Brisbane’s South Bank. Located on Sidon Street, close to the Goodwill Bridge, at Aquitaine Brasserie you can indulge in a menu of contemporary French cuisine while being rewarded with stunning views across the river as well as the city’s skyline. For a special dining experience in Brisbane, make a reservation at this charming French restaurant.
Attracting discerning diners from all over the area, Aquitaine Brasserie in Brisbane's South Bank provides diners with some rustic French elegance, taking provincial fare and giving it a modern edge. Begin with some beef tartare or the duck with paté, ham, black pudding, foie gras, pickled quince and spiced bread crumb, before moving on to one of the delectable mains. We recommend sharing the whole wood-fired Bendele farm duck served with shaved cucumber, radish, lime, pickled shallots, red pepper aigre doux and sumac yoghurt, followed by some mille-feuille with orange chiboust, hazelnut praline crumb, mandarin and cocoa.
Of course, as you would expect from a quality French restaurant, the wine list has been perfectly put together with an array of French and local wines, and you’ll find a list of European-inspired cocktails too. With its stylish surrounds and views across the Brisbane skyline and river, Aquitaine Brasserie is the perfect location for a special occasion or a romantic date. You’ll find it on South Bank’s Sidon Street in the chic River Quay dining precinct – book in advance to avoid disappointment!
Fabulous French cuisine with first class friendly service!! Aquitaine has stunning views of the city and a wonderful ambience. Loved our dinner experience there and would highly recommend it!
We were greeted warmly, promptly seated and offered water. On delivering our bottle of wine to the table, the waiter showed the label before opening. That was fortuitous, because it wasn't the wine we wanted. The menu was fully explained and our order taken in good time. The food was worth waiting for. Absolutely delicious. Throughout the evening we did not have to ask for water or wine to be replenished.
Absolutely lovely. Food was delicious, service fantastic and the setting just perfect, with a backdrop of the river, city, Christmas carols from the River Quay and a great view of the fireworks. It was a treat for my husband's birthday and it was just the ticket!
