Located in the River Quay dining precinct, overlooking both the Brisbane river and CBD, Aquitaine is a truly unique and stunning location, and our Private Dining Room is available for both lunch or dinner.

This was the most amazing dinner I can remember. Every part of every dish was spectacular and beautifully presented.
