The food was delicious and the service was very good. We did have to wait a fair amount of time for our pre-dinner drinks and only received them during the first course which was not ideal. All other drinks were promptly delivered.

If there is a restaurant in Australia deserving of a Michelin Star, it would be this one. The Degustation menu is as innovative and service as impeccable as any of the Michelin Stars in anywhere. Each dish, not only tempted your palate for more, but also livened all your other senses. The staff truly goes out of their way to make you feel at home. This is a must when visiting Brisbane.

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.

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.
