Birthday celebration

We eat out a lot, and had heard very nice things about the only 3 hatted restaurant in Brisbane. We went there to celebrate the Mrs birthday. The dishes were quirky and special and each of the staff had very thick French accents. The protein mains were very refined, but the white chocolate porcini... read more

Four of us enjoyed a wonderful night out here. We had the degustation menu with paired wines and enjoyed pretty much all of it. There were some really unusual combinations and some very witty, clever touches. The only weak course was the chicken, which I found rather bland. But the deconstructed apple strudel that arrived in the middle of proceedings... More

Visited this restaurant for my bday. Hubby and I greatly enjoyed the 3 hour, 14 course degustation! We have been to many degustations and found this on par with our favourites Aria Brisbane & Nautilus Port Douglas. The main difference being a greater variety of dishes at Esquire due to so many recipes. (The best restaurant we've had a degustation... More

My son turned 27 so a special night was required. I booked a table as he had not tried a degustation menu before. The restaurant is very basic in its decor, the wait staff were young and not as attentive as I expected for the price paid to eat there. Some of the courses were delicious and what I would... More

Not nearly good enough for the price it was. I have had much better degustation for almost half the price. That's not to say there weren't some very nice courses but I wouldn't go back. Matching wines were wonderful though, very interesting, very suited to the food. Service was excellent.

We have attended many restaurants in the world and had a degustation menu many times. This would have to be one of the most expensive with wine. The food most courses were very nice but the duck and steak courses were a mess. The wines to go with the meal were $85 per person. For the first few courses we... More

Fantastic food and service was excellent. They were more than happy to warm Sake for us even though it's not their usual practice. I have to say that such good food and service comes at a price but a nice place to have a business meeting over a lunch.
