Boasting a prime dress circle position on the Brisbane river with spectacular views of the Story Bridge, Patina is the in-place to enjoy some of Brisbane’s finest cuisine made from fresh seasonal produce and local seafood that is sourced daily by the kitchen brigade.

When it comes to drinks, diners are spoilt for choice, with a carefully curated selection of renowned Rieslings, Rosés and Champagnes that have mostly been sourced from small producers and family owned wineries.

For those who prefer a cocktail, Patina’s elegant cocktail menu offers a selection of the finest distilled spirits and mixers. Must-try is the heavenly ‘Honey Bee’ – a sweet Havana Club 3yo rum, topped with honey, lemon juice and leaves of mint.

Tip - Rock up early for pre-dinner drinks on the elegant garden furniture with a front row view of the Story Bridge. Entrees are available to share here and enjoy with a cocktail, wine or beer.

Need to know - For a more intimate group setting within Patina, guests can book Customs House’s private rooms, available for groups of ten to twenty-four.  Custom House’s tradition of Champagne Tea and breakfast on Sundays (from 9am) continues at Patina.

Good to know - Patina is named after the iconic copper dome atop of Customs House which over time has oxidised to develop its distinct green colour.
