Meet the Chef

Chef Nick Stapleton is primarily inspired by Vietnamese cuisine but also draws on traditional French techniques. Growing up with a mother who had her own restaurant, Nick learnt to love simple cooking that respected the ingredients; pasta, roast chicken, slow-cooked pork shoulder. Now an acclaimed chef with several awards under his hat, Nick has brought his creative vision to an impressive roll call of kitchens including the London Club, , Survey Co, Gordita and Ginger’s Diner.

    Very big food portions, we shared a main and three sides and probably finished half. Plenty of left overs for dinner the next day!

    The Balfour rarely disappoints. Quality and service extremely high. Had the "eat everything" share menu. Good portion size and quality. Starting to become a bit dated.

    Excellent atmosphere in the courtyard just a bit chilly as the heaters were broken. Highly recommend the 'taste it all menu' otherwise definitely the beef cheeks.

About the restaurant

Escape the bustle of the city to our charming and serene Queenslander – with Modern Vietnamese dining on the veranda, relaxed gatherings under fragrant frangipanis or cocktails on the Rooftop Bar as the sun sets over the iconic Story Bridge.

Our edgy Modern Vietnamese inspired cuisine with a French twist, will entice those with a palate for fresh, light and punchy which also includes a delicious selection of vegan and vegetarian options. The enticing menu is the creation of Head Chef Nick Stapleton and showcases local Queensland ingredients, fresh and cooked, with beautifully balanced Asian aromats and the distinctive sweet, hot, sour and salty flavours of Vietnamese cuisine at its best.

Breakfast at Balfour, almost a Brisbane institution, is a must; the perfect place to start the day. Linger with friends over High Tea, lazy lunches or sunset cocktails in our rooftop bar.

For those with dietary requirements, our Chefs are here to please.

Head Chef Nick Stapleton showcases local Queensland ingredients with beautifully balanced Asian aromats and the distinctive sweet, hot, sour and salty flavours of Vietnamese cuisine at its best.

While respecting the traditions of French and Asian cuisines, he brings a rebellious flair to the fusion, inspired by the image of a Vietnamese chef cooking to comfort a Frenchman far from home.
