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.

The steaks at Six Acres, which are directly sourced from Gympie or the Darling Downs, are a must try. 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.
