Amongst the timber topped hills and leafy streets of Brisbane’s favourable food hub sits welcome a new addition. Margo Restaurant and Bar has just opened on Given Terrace in Paddington, taking over the vacant spot Montrachet left behind. While some may think they have big shoes to fill, they have already gained much praise for their fresh and contemporary take on European fine dining.

With a deep respect for fresh, seasonal and local produce, Executive Chef Americo Fernandes has a true passion for creativity within the kitchen. Margo Restaurant and Bar creates delectable dishes that are crafted from French techniques yet packed with flavours that are worldly and untraditional. Fernandes taps into the taste buds of France, Asia, Spain and beyond to give diners a flavoursome trip around the world within a single dish.

Margo Restaurant and Bar plans to expand their menu and adapt to seasonal changes, meaning this restaurant will continue to reinvent themselves – staying new, fresh and exciting long after the doors have opened. Get ready for a menu that’s experimental and continuously altered ensuring that each dining experience is unique, flavourful and just damn delicious!

Now even the finest of food wouldn’t be complete without the match of a tasty drink, right? Don’t forget to indulge a tipple or two from the noteworthy bar, with a vast selection of exquisite wines, beers on tap and classic cocktails.

The décor is unequivocally French inspired. The space is fitted with alfresco seating, private red leather booths and a deliciously Parisian addition to every table touch. Complimentary baguette basket here we come!

With a menu fit for even the finest French aristocracy, Margo Restaurant and Bar also prides itself on being able to cater for dietary requirements. Each meal can be altered to suit your foodie needs, whether your diet is vegan, gluten-free or even if you have an unfortunate nut allergy. You can also book for private events, work functions, birthdays or pretty much any occasion that could be made better with good food (aka all of them).

So don your best frock, add a touch of red lippy, gather up the girls (or your lucky sod of a partner) and try out Brisbane’s newest and finest French influenced establishments!
