Six Acres Restaurant

Fortitude Valley

Six Acres Restaurant is a seriously good dining destination found off the beaten track in the base of spiffy Rydges Fortitude Valley.

You don’t have to be a guest at the hotel to partake in the culinary delights to keep the most fastidious foodie happy, and Six Acres punches way above its weight as a hotel restaurant, to be amongst Brisbane’s best.

Décor is as fresh, unique and inviting as the food, with ambient lighting, plenty of space between tables, a wall of market produce, herb cart and a quirky back lit wall of commemorative plates including historic Brisbane events like the Commonwealth Games 1982.

The philosophy driving Six Acres is paddock to plate dining, with a return to basics done superbly and with a fresh twist. With not an emulsion foam or twig in sight here, the chef works his magic on good produce.

Choose from T-Bone, Scotch Fillet, Sirloin on the Bone (directly soured from Gympie) or Black Angus Eye Fillet cooked to perfection with a choice of sauce such as red wine jus or mushroom ann herb roasted or heavenly mashed potatoes.
