The contemporary open plan eatery with 2 level terraced deck makes the most of the stunning views across to the Howards Smith wharves, Brisbane River Walk and New Farm cliffs and is an unbeatable spot to catch some warm morning rays in winter or cool river breezes in summer.
Open for breakfast and lunch daily, and for dinner from Thursday to Saturday, the international menu (which offers both light or substantial dishes) takes its inspiration from the history of the area. The grand heritage-listed building Yungaba, which today is being converted into luxury apartments, was the first point of call for migrants from 1887 through to post World War II when it was a reception and training centre for European migrants.
Start the day with a home-made muffin or scone, and breakfast around the world with the likes of Crepes Sucrees (sweet crepes with saffron poached pear & chantilly cream), Marco Polo (hot smokes salmon with Indian spices, crispy kale, poached egg and hash brown), Huevos Rancheros (tomato salsa, black bean salad, Mexican rice, avo and fried egg), or Big Fat Greek Breakfast.
Come lunch-time dine on Medley House Salad, Seafood Paella, Pork Skewer, Massimo's Pasta, Sesame Crusted Barramundi or Zaalouk (ragout with chickpea, tomato, aubergine and Moroccan spices, with flat bread).
To accompany there's a range of beers and ciders (local and international), and wines including Italian prosecco, French rose and Argentinian Malbec.
From the small dessert menu there’s coffee and chocolate profiteroles or Tiramisu based on oreo cookies.
Need to know - There’s a council car park on Wharf St which usually has plenty of spots otherwise there’s multi-hour metered street parking around Wharf St and down near Captain Burke Park under the bridge.
Nice to know – Medley is dog-friendly, with spots to tie up the dog outside and special designer water bowls soon to arive from Gin Gin. It’s also a great place for mums with prams to catch up, with plenty of space between tables and accessible waterfront paths leading to parking.
