The Brisbane Hotel, 6003

Grilled Tasmanian Salmon, Niçoise Salad

I'm a big fan of The Brisbane Hotel or what is referred to by some as "the Brizzie".  The service is excellent, the food is consistently good and the atmosphere reminds me a little of being in a Balinese resort.   They do salt and pepper squid SO well - tiny pieces of squid rings in light crispy batter, never thick and chewy like some crappy calamari I find too often (Sienas is a good example).   Their modern take on the Salmon Niçoise is my favourite, and I order this almost every time I'm here for dinner, it's that delicious...this is unlike me too, as I usually like to try as many different menu items possible. I'd hate to get in a food-rut...after all variety truly is the spice of life!   The pizzas at The Brisbane are super yummy as well; bases not too thick, not too thin and the toppings are a original, yet restrained (unlike some other pizza places that get a bit carried away with the gourmet toppings - here's looking at you Little Caesars).  I'd highly recommend The Brisbane for get-togethers on lazy Sunday afternoons - it's a great space and the homemade sausage rolls, dips and other shares always go down a treat with groups...the Mojitos are awesome too!

Food: 4/5
