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

Hats off to this hatted restaurant

Amazing fine dining experience in an unrivalled spectacular location with views over the river even more incredible at night. Portions are what you would expect for a hatted restaurant but are definitely larger than those in a degustation menu. A dish for every palate and a dynamic menu make this... read more

Aria can be a real hit or miss depending on the menu. I have been there a few times now and it's either been amazing or just ok. The service is exceptional. I went with some friends for a 21st and the staff were so kind and helpful. Other than the service make sure you look up what's on offer... More

I had lunch here and loved it, my food and the food at others at the table looked and tasted great. I hadn't planned on it but ended up having a 3 course lunch and went back to work extreamly satisfied. Service was impecable, could be the best fine dining Brisbane.

Beautiful food, fantastic service ... surprisingly worth every penny. The table is reserved for 2hrs which is enough time to comfortably eat three courses. The meals are a good size, so you don't leave wanting more.

My family and I had an amazing dinner here. The dishes we ordered were perfect and we had nothing but praises for it. The service was splendid and the restaurant has a lovely ambiance too. Definitely one of the best dining experiences I've ever had.

My husband and I were given a leave pass recently and were looking for a restaurant for spoiling. We booked in at ARIA and were elated with the whole experience. The wine bar had an immense selection of quality wines that catered for a variety of tastes. The olives accompanying them were delectable. It only got better from there.... Our... More
