It wouldn’t be surprising to see the God of food, wine and indulgence himself lounging at Bacchus Restaurant, his South Brisbane namesake. Located on the podium level of the Rydges South Bank hotel, this lavish yet inviting venue presents a sensory feast of sparkling chandeliers, rich furnishings, eclectic music and innovative Modern Australian cuisine. Equip yourself with a cocktail or aperitif, direct your gaze to the languid pool or the vibrant open kitchen, and indulge in an ever-changing array of dishes. Perhaps enjoy freshly shucked oysters, lightly poached with finger limes and dill, followed by squid ink fish gnocchi, with cannellini, mussels and cuttlefish. Mains such as kangaroo strip loin, with celeriac, lemongrass, kale and horseradish will surely have you coming back for more.
