About Motorwagen

Reflecting the creativity of inventor Karl Benz, Motorwagen on Adelaide Street brings a stunning dining venue to Brisbane. Rocking a modern decor of blond wood, vibrant maroon seating and art deco paintings adorning the walls, this restaurant exudes a Mediterranean vibe. Start your engines with Fraser Island spanner crab on a toasted house crumpet, with chilli, crustacean oil, poached egg and brown butter Hollandaise; before changing gears at lunch and dinner with signature dishes such as Black Angus sirloin, cassava, smoked carrot, beef fat Bearnaise and anise jus. Perhaps Qld reef fish entices, accompanied by saffron-glazed fennel, roast chicken and house whey bone sauce and jungle crunch; cross the finish line to delve into desserts of chocolate fondant, Bailey's gelato and orange oil.

Great City Dining
Whether dining for breakfast, lunch or dinner, the options are minimalist but inspiring. There's something for everyone and you don't have to spend 10 minutes trying to understand what you're going to receive. Really enjoyed my lunch between meetings in the city.
