We love Esquire. From the decor, the priceless view, super star wait staffs to beautifully executed degustation menu. The fact that fine dinning in Brisbane seemsmore relax and slightly more casual than Sydney and Melbourn is refreshing. Will be back if having the chance.

Dined here 5 years ago, divine, this time ordinary. Had tasting menu with matching wine, very stingy with wine and often thirsty. 2 of the "wine" courses were fruit juice, how extraordinary! Have never seen this anywhere else in the world. Pork was all gristle...More
