We went there during Happy Hour. Experienced the rudest staff attitude in Queensland. The place is not meeting any service standards and staff manners are miles away from being referred to as "French".

Had dinner recently with a group at this restaurant - we all had a terrific night. The food was wonderful and the staff were attentive and professional. Lovely setting by the river looking towards the city - it was beautiful on a balmy summer evening.

Location was amazing and service was good. Unfortunately that’s where the positives ended tonight. The food for the price was very underwhelming. We made the joke of walking past busy venues to picking the quiet one. We should have taken the hint. The lamb looked...More

ABOUT AQUITAINE BRASSERIE Inspired by L'Aquitaine in South West France, this river side dining experience brings together a journey from the Farm House to the Champs Elysees. The contemporary French menu is based on classic French recipes and is brought to life with fresh local produce and modern cooking techniques. Our Head Chef Sam Lonsdale has created a perfectly balanced menu that will appeal to all discerning diners. The wine list intrigues with the positioning of French and local wines together in a regional styles, categorised by palate characteristics rather than varietals. The cocktail list and spirit selection has a real French influence, while Aquitaine maintains an agreement to see direct importing of French produced Kronenbourg draft beer. Aquitaine sits between Popolo Italian Kitchen and Stokehouse Q at River Quay, South Bank, Brisbane and ads a real touch of French class to this thriving riviera.
