    Great tasty food. I love it when the food on the menu is what you would not cook at home. Lovely flavours and a delight to eat. This place was recommended by the place we stayed at it was her local favourite many thanks Areca.

    Absolutely superb food & service. Jamie is the best waiter we’ve come across in some time with vast array of knowledge in all areas & fun guy. Steak cooked to perfection best ever had anywhere thanks to Ian the chef. The 4 of us loved every dish served & blown away by tasters served to nibble on while we waited. Entrees generous sizes. Wines lovely .Would frequent often if lived in Tasmania. Thanks for a great night.

    Brisbane Street is an absolutely delightful restaurant. The food was remarkably good and Jamie, our server, was adorable and very interesting. We were completely delighted and hope to return again soon.

    Ambiance very good, wait staff very attentive, food exceptional. We both had the beef fillet which was cooked to perfection and was an exceptional cut of meat. A credit to the producers and the chef.

After twenty plus years of owning restaurants in Tasmania, Terry Fidler knows a thing or two about restaurants. Brisbane Street Bistro is where Fidler prepares contemporary fresh food in a relaxed environment. From live oysters split to order from St Helens’ Lease 65, to dairy-cream and cheese from Meander Valley, this bistro only uses the finest ingredients. In just five years, Brisbane Street Bistro has attained awards for “Best Informal Dining”, “Best European Restaurant 2011”, and “Best European Restaurant 2012”, “Best European Restaurant 2013”, "Best Stand-Alone Restaurant 2015 and “Best Front of House 2012” from the Tasmanian Hospitality Association. Not a bad effort.

Best dish: smoked mussel and chorizo croquette, chilli pickled vegetables and saffron mayonnaise with a glass of Pinot Noir.
