Description: 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

“Dining at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

From the professional yet welcoming greeting to the pre meal drink at the bar and finally dinner overlooking the river this restaurant provides superlative service. The food is incredible and is well worth spending the extra on. As eating at aria is an experience not to be missed.

“Always really great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

Have been to Aria several times and have always been amazing food and service. Unlike some other high end restaurants Ive been to, Aria food doesnt seem to be too pretentious, but good food cooked really well. At first view the serving size seems small but I've never keft Aria without being completely satisfied. If possible try the menu with matched wines gives you the full experience. The lunch menu is very affordable if budget is an issue , but the river view at night is also amazing... so try both!

My husband and I dined at Aria Brisbane with their set menu for a New Years Eve celebration. Everything was perfect. Make sure you book early.
