About Motorwagen

Reflecting the creativity of inventor Karl Benz, Motorwagen on Adelaide Street brings a stunning new dining venue to Brisbane. Named after the world's first petrol-powered vehicle, this restaurant, in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz, delivers unique customer service, great food and a merchandise boutique with the latest vehicles on display. Rocking a modern decor of blond wood furniture, vibrant orange seating and art deco posters adorning the walls, Motorwagen oozes a funky Mediterranean vibe, matched by a vibrant menu. Start your engines with an entrée of grilled cauliflower with chickpea and tahini gnocchi; before changing gears with beef flank, chimichurri, triple baked potatoes and Parmesan. Cross the finish line and delve into a kumquat and vanilla panna cotta with honeycomb.

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.
