ARIA Brisbane, located on the Eagle Street Pier, provides the quintessential Brisbane dining experience, with striking views from the restaurant of the Brisbane River. Owned by chef Matt Moran and restaurateur, Peter Sullivan, ARIA boasts a well-balanced seasonal menu, featuring local and Australian produce and an award winning wine list, served in an elegant dining room with stunning views. "If it's fine dining you seek, in a split-level expanse of understated elegance that affords sweeping city views, this sibling to Matt Moran's southern star ticks the boxes. Add a stellar cellar selection, with a thoughtful nod to Queensland wineries, plus accomplished service and you've hit the right notes, particularly for corporates and lovers of occasion. There's obvious skill, attention to detail and quality produce on show from opening chords to final flourish. Succulent pork belly has perfect golden crackling, while plump duck dumplings, abalone and mushrooms swim in a Peking duck consomme. Kingfish baked in cedar bark has its wrapping set alight en route to the table, adding a welcome smokiness. Creamy custard tart alongside figs, apple slices and candied walnuts has real retro charm. A sweet farewell gift box of miniature macarons rounds out a night to remember." Gourmet Traveller Australia

A top class restaurant in the CBD

Probably the best wine list in Brisbane. Good location by the river. Nice decor and good service. It is bit expensive but good for special occasions

After spending a most enjoyable evening during last September having the 4 course degustation menu with wine, my wife and I thought we would bring back our friends to share the experience with us. What a mistake! Also keep in mind that the 4 course degustation with wine costs $175 a person. First up our table was not ready-we did... More

There is no doubt that this is a fine food experience. The little touches before and after your meal are amazing and full of flavour. We really enjoyed our entree's but both out mains lacked a punch of flavour. They were nice and showed a lot of technique but both the Lamb and Barramundi were not up to the standard... More

I had heard so many good things about Aria. Our dinner with friends on their son's 18th birthday was overpriced & underwhelming. My lambs racks were only 1.5 racks & were not tender & my wifes duck was only 2 very small pieces & the skin was soggy. Before we had received our meals my wife & I said we... More

We had a drink at the delightful bar first & we had booked the later service, we were early when we were collected & told our table was ready if we would like to come through to the restaurant. The service was like this all the way through the meal from beginning to end, just superb food, wine & lots... More

We've eaten at Aria many times - but usually for dinner. Today, we decided to try lunch on the river, but came away rather underwhelmed. Dinner here is usually a fantastic gastronomic experience that definitely has the 'wow' factor - and especially when accompanied with the expertly matched wines - but lunch leaves a lot to be desired. The staff... More

The food was delicious, not as creative as I had hoped. The setting on the river was delightful. Wine very expensive, and the room was so noisy I struggled to hear my lunch guests.

From the time we walked in the door to the time we left everything was perfect. The staff were polite and friendly. We were treated like family. The food was exquisite with the attention to detail and the taste was devine. I would definately recommend a visit to this wonderful fine dining restaurant. I will definately be returning.
