About Summit Restaurant and Bar

Exceptional food, service and panoramic views across Brisbane to Moreton Bay make Summit Restaurant and Bar well worth a trip up Mount Coot-tha. Terraced indoor seating and an outdoor deck ensure that every seat in the restaurant – set within the iconic Brisbane Lookout – captures the best view. Flooded with sunlight and scenic vistas by day, at night Summit Restaurant glitters with candles and the distant lights of the city. From the seasonal menu expect entrees such as pan seared Queensland scallops with Southern Downs wild boar, squid ink, edamame foam and shiitake mushroom puff; before a main affair of braised beef cheeks, Paris mash, roasted beets, carrots and horseradish cream. Be sure to leave room for dark chocolate mousse, sour cherry compote, cherry gel and white chocolate soil.

A few words from Summit Restaurant and Bar


The jewel in Brisbane's crown, Brisbane Lookout offers panoramic views of the iconic cityscape all the way to the bays. Dazzling during the day and sparkling with city lights and stars in the evening, Brisbane Lookout will get you high .. above Brisbane. A minute drive from The Western Freeway with plenty of free carparking. Brisbane City Council Bus 471 can also take you out of the urban scrawl of the city centre to a whole new world. Choose your own adventure! Soak up the views across the morning, day and into the evening from the viewing deck or frolic through beautifully kept gardens. Electrify visitors, impress first dates, woo lovers, cavort with families, gather and celebrate with friends or tie the knot at the very pinnacle of Brisbane. Convene with professionals to lessen the formalities - though not the privacy - of business. Get fit on the grueling walking-bike tracks up and down Mt Coot-tha. You are simply not a Brisbane local unless Brisbane Lookout is an integral part of your lifestyle.


The gemstone of Brisbane Lookout, Summit Restaurant & Bar is an award-winning spot perfect for whiling away the hours, noshing on a superb menu highlighting Queensland delicacies assembled by leading chefs or sipping martini's from attentive staff.

The ultimate in casual dining, Kuta Café brings the panoramic vista straight to your table. Enjoy a coffee or tea, refresh spirits with a drink or feast on a signature burger with the rest of Brisbane - locals and visitors. The terrace also allows for cocktail parties or informal events for the zenith in occasions. And all the while, the iconic Brisbane cityscape remains the stunning backdrop to your Kuta experience.

Staff Function was excellent
A huge shout out to the Staff, especially Tess for her pre-organisation of our event and being always contactable and accommodating last minute add ins on the night, Johann for his friendly accommodating help on first arrival and for Brendan and Emily for looking after our event especially in the evening, you were all awesome and our staff really enjoyed Emily's personality on the night taking our photos for us :-). You made our day and evening just fabulous! Thankyou. I would recommend the Fountain View Room for any function.


We had the romantic couples package with matching wines. The food was beyond all expectations and was exceptional. The wines only added to the experience. Would highly recommend and will be back with friends!
