We did not have a reservation but were welcomed in. We arrived at about 8.00 pm ( late for Launceston:-)) but were accomodated graciously. The meal was superb, the desserts decadent. Fine dining, and while it is on the expensive sife,it is an experience worth saving up for. Miriam, who served us ,was delightful. Says it all- I made a... More

We were recommended by our hotel but also looked on Trip Advisor before booking. The food was good and the place was full which is also a good recommendation. It is quite formal for a bistro. Service was generally good although a side order was forgotten and we had to ask for it. We would have liked to be able... More

It was 6:15pm on a Saturday night and after contacting 4 restaurants to dine at as a family of 5 we were excited to find out Brisbane Street Bistro was able to accommodate us. Upon arrival we quickly realized it is not typically a family friendly restaurant. I commend the wait staff for welcoming us in and treating us no... More

Service was attentive but not obtrusive the food was devine and the wine selection was great. Staff were exceptional and places in Sydney could learn from them in terms of service and knowledge of the produce so whomever picked the staff, job well done, the older lady was very warm and welcoming, hats off to her as this is not...

Service is so often hard to find, but here, the staff are truly wonderful. The braised venison was exquisite and my husband loved the lamb. Oysters to start with were the equal of France's!! Excellent range of wines by the glass. We forget just how good this place is, and will be returning again soon. They were full on Thursday... More

You think "Bistro", you think bar & cafe food. This is definitely NOT what I'd call a bistro - this is an upmarket Restaurant. We booked only because it was close to Xmas, not realising that without a booking we probably wouldn't have got in. I wore a short-sleeved polo & was probably the only person in the place without...

Visited the Brisbane Street bistro in December 2014. The service was great, the two lovely waitresses were attentive and provided great advice about sights to see in Launceston. The food was absolutely delicious, and it came out from the kitchen in a good amount of time - not slow at all. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who... More

This was our third choice after a last minute decision to stay in Launceston on the Saturday before Christmas. After hearing repeatedly, "sorry fully booked" we were happy to be squeezed in at the last minute. Squeezed in being the operable word - a tiny table more suitable for two and tucked into the corner, making it difficult for wait... More

We dined here two nights ago. We have done a number of degustations in Australia and this ranks up there with the best. Bilsons (at the Radisson in Sydney - gone now) is our benchmark and Brisbane Street Bistro is biting at its heels in terms of quality and service. Both memorable meals. We think the wine matching at the... More
