We had pork belly for entree which was a special on the night we were there. Absolutely delicious. Probably the tastiest pork belly we have eaten. For main I had the beef short rib and my partner had the steak. Again, wow! A beautiful meal, and as usual when we have been here, the service was impeccable. A great dining... More

The positives started with the phone call to book a lunch seating. A delightful person named Mandy was helpful and cheerful. She sounded like she really enjoyed greeting people on the phone. When she called back on the day of the booking she was just as bubbly and nice - she made me smile. At the restaurant the service was... More

I ordered a rare steak cut and the waitress correctly recommended that I change the cut of steak as the one I had chosen was too marbled for rare. I did as she recommended and I received the most perfectly cooked rare steak I have had in ages. The chef/s are at the top of their game here. Wine menu... More

Whilst we had a lovely night I was extremely dissapointed when a "Tip" of 15% was added, not on the bill, but when my credit card was presented at the EFTPOS machine. I quickly pulled my card out and asked the waiter to re-do the payment. I expressed my concern to the Manager and he tried to explain it that... More

A superb waterfront location in Brisbane with expansive floor to ceiling glass to maximize the views. We chose a set tasting menu of 5 courses which included a different wine to accompany each course. Each course was completely different to the previous and portion sizes were perfectly appropriate for a 5 course menu. Dinner times were fixed, we had a... More

I have never bothered to look at Aria thinking it would be above my price range (even as a business traveller) but their lunch menu is extremely well priced. The food was spectacular, presented so perfectly you don't want to eat it and outstanding service. All I guess what you would expect from a Matt Moran restaurant so nice that... More

The serving sizes are small as one may expect, yet the food is somewhat boring. I would rather spend $10 to get a Punjabe palace butter chicken than the same amount for the meals here if they cost even remotely close. The service was ordinary, I am not sure where the feeling special comment comes from for most. I certainly... More

The food, the staff, the view, the whole experience was 5 star! I was in town on business and after a few bad meals in Brisbane, I hoped that this would be different and it certainly didn't disappoint. I had the fish which was absolutely stunning and the sticky date souffle for dessert is a must. I would highly recommend... More

Aria is one of those restaurants that is a wonderful option for special occasions. The restaurant is lovely and enjoys a beautiful view of the Brisbane River. The food and wine selection is superb. Consider the degustation menu as it is a tasty way to enjoy a sampling of what this restaurant has to offer.

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
