Dined here on our anniversary but we were both quite disappointed with the food. The mains are around the $36-43 per plate so for that price, it tasted pretty bad. Ordered seared scallops for starters, lamb rump and minute steak for mains and chips for sides. Every single dish was quite underwhelming (including the chips). The only highlight was the... More

This place holds its own, and then some. When I think of the shabby fish dish the Mariott served up down the road, both the menu and the drinks selections were impeccable. Even had an old Irish single malt I had not tasted for over 18 years! Pity I couldn't share the evening with any one of the stunning girls... More

The food was fantastic too! Well presented with beautiful flavours - my partner who rarely raves about food is still raving about the waygu steak! The owners (chef and front of house) are rightly enthusiastic about their bistro. This would make a wonderful place to celebrate or for a romantic dinner.

I went to the restaurant on the recommendation of friends who had waxed lyrical about it. I had thought, "Nothing could be that good" but how wrong I was! It was every bit as good as Tetsuya's (and a great deal more reasonably priced). Highly recommended. I still dream about the duck breast.

We have been to E'cco a few times and always enjoyed the meals there. The food is always yummy and the service is fantastic. We are never disappointed, The duck was amazing and the desert was to die for. Can't wait to go back!

This is one of my all-time favourite restaurants in Brisbane. Every meal that I have had there has been memorable. When we lived in Noosa, it used to take 2 hours to drive there and we had to stay overnight, but it was worth it. Now we live on the Gold Coast, it is only 50 minutes drive but is... More
