C’EST DU GATEAU
LADOKOLLA ON THE HILL
EAGLES NEST BRISBANE
Yasou! Say hello to Highgate Hill’s newest foodie addition: Greek restaurant Ladokolla on the Hill. Promising delicious eats (we’re talking homemade moussaka, pastitsio, stuffed cabbage rolls, and lamb and potatoes in the oven), oldschool hospitality, and plenty of ‘kefi’ (Greek for togetherness), the family-run restaurant prides itself on serving up simple food, done well. Trust us when we say you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped off the plane and walked into a taverna in Greece.
Panoramic views, rooftop sunset drinks, and tapas-style bites worth salivating over, Eagles Nest Brisbane, which is situated atop The Point Brisbane Hotel in Kangaroo Point, is the perfect spot for an afternoon catch up with friends. The rooftop bar, which also doubles as a corporate event venue, offers a delicious menu (tuck into favourites like brioche chorizo sliders and truffle fries) complemented by a range of signature cocktails, Champagne, wine, and craft beer. PS, don’t miss their New Year’s Eve event (head to their website for details).

The southside’s latest bakery is an authentic taste of France, helmed by two talented chefs with more than 15 years experience in the kitchens of high-end patisseries and hotels across France and Europe. From decadent brioche to delicate mille-feuille, and of course, delicious croissants, C’est du Gateau also has the savoury lovers sorted with the likes of a 12-hour slowcooked BBQ pulled pork and caramelised onion croissant.
Taking dining to jawdropping new heights is Brisbane Powerhouse’s new vertical restaurant, dishing up an exclusive gastronomic experience four stories above the ground overhanging the institution’s industrial façade. With the talented Bar Alto chefs indulging adventurers via local ingredients across a set menu, diners can opt for a different kind of dessert in the form of drop lining down the building after their meal. Dress code? Safety harnesses, of course.
