Herve's Restaurant and Bar


Herve's Restaurant and Bar is a stunning loft-style French restaurant and bar occupying the top floor of an old dance studio in an historic Albion timber mill.

Run by a posse of esteemed hospitality veterans, including Herve Dudogne (ex- Hotel de Crillon in Paris, Mandarin Hotel in Hong Kong, Merivale in Sydney, Palazzo Versace and Stanley at Howard Smith Wharves) and his wife Cristina at the helm, with chefs Chris and Alex Norman in the kitchen, Herve's is a new shining star in Brisbane's dining scene.
