Description: At Jellyfish we aim to source and serve daily a school of 8 to 14 species of fish, to learn about and understand the textures and specific qualities of each species so we can then recommend the best way to cook and serve it. Our chefs create sauces, batters and crumbs as well as an extensive range of side dishes that perfectly compliment the meal. Absolute riverfront, this is arguably the best located restaurant in Brisbane enjoying striking views of the river and the Story Bridge. The décor is fresh and bright with the lines between indoors and out delightfully blurred.We offer a superior wine list of boutique, eclectic and lesser known vineyards as well as firm favourites from the new and old world. Service in the restaurant, the 35-seat Private Dining Room and in our newly expanded bar is always gracious, friendly and relaxed.

We were warmly greater by very friendly and informative staff. The fish is fresh everyday. I loved the watermelon salad.

“Great Riverfront Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

You cannot get much closer to the Brisbane River than this restaurant which sits alongside it as opposed to overlooking it. Offering a wide selection of food and wines at fine dining prices it has quickly established itself as one of the top ten business restaurants in the city and its location also makes it popular with visitors. A steady bet for an enjoyable lunch or dinner in a superb setting.

“The best meal we had in Australia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This restaurant came highly rated and this was absolutely true. The food, service and venue right on the river were all stunning. We eat out alot generally and for 15 days we did every night and this was the best meal by far. Have the "bugs" for main, but everything we ate was fantastic so just enjoy!
