Clarence Restaurant


Clarence Restaurant is a cosy 19th century European-style bistro nestled in a row of heritage-listed bars and restaurants in Woolloongabba.

Occupying a historic terrace shop, the narrow 35 seat restaurant combines industrial chic with old world charm, featuring exposed handmade brick walls, soaring ceilings, dim ambient lighting and an original timber staircase to the rear.

In contrast to the setting, the menu is cutting edge contemporary, with seasonal dishes crafted by chef/part-owner (who hails from Nineteen at the Star and Stokehouse Q) from quality locally sourced produce and a cracking concise wine list to accompany.
