Gerard’s Bistro

Dishes from Africa, Europe and the Middle East in a chic dining room with a 3D timber wall. Every city should be so lucky as to have a bistro like Gerard's. Onions are charred, eggplant is blackened over flames and jars of pumpkin are patiently left to ferment inside Gerard's busy open kitchen. All are elements for Ben Williamson's menu, a beguiling mash-up of Middle Eastern and modern Australian cuisines. We recommend Williamson's funky Époisses and fermented mushroom dust mousse covering smoky eggplant purée, petals of baby onion filled with housemade pig's blood morcilla with sweetly smoky onion juice consommé. It's intensely aromatic and a dish of pure joy. A visit to Gerard's brings together inventive and beautifully executed food with a strong list of international wines to complement. Gerard’s menu is designed to be shared along with our carefully curated wine list to enhance the experience.


One of the many highlights of any visit to Brisbane is experiencing the epicurean delights of the city’s different neighbourhoods. Brisbane is immeasurably proud of its reputation for fine dining, and within a ten minute radius of the town centre you can choose between the kitchens of European, Mediterranean, Asian or contemporary Australian restaurants.
