Fine dining at it's, well, finest. A beautiful 7-course vegetarian degustation with matching wines delivered by a very friendly and knowledgeable sommelier. A special night for my husband's 30th. Urbane will not disappoint.

Half the dishes of the degustation menu were amazing, but the second half really missed the mark. Unfortunately the desert left a undesirable aftertaste that really spoiled the overall experience.

My first time at Urbane and had my best quail dish there. The amount of thought and work put into that dish was amazing.

About Urbane

An experience to savour. Urbane has become an icon in the Brisbane dining scene, boasting numerous awards and a top-notch reputation. Inside the restaurant is decked out in simple, classic decor with impressive feature artworks decorating the walls. This is the perfect setting for the intricate and picture perfect food that flows from the kitchen. Head chef Alejandro Cancio has created an exceptional fine-dining degustation menu that will have you ‘wowing’ the whole way through. The dishes are a complex mix of Asian/European flavours and all are full of texture, flavour and colour - each bite is a mystery and a delight. If you’re lucky your degustation will feature some of our favourites: mussels with kimchi oil, or octopus with a tangy squid ink sauce. This is an incredible night out, and one you won’t easily forget. Best Dish: deconstructed cheesecake with pureed and meringue berries.
