Wonderful views but that is as far as it goes. Prices are exorbitant which would not be quite so bad if the quality of the food matched. $60.00 for a dozen oysters which were on the small size and did not taste freshly shucked; $65.00...More

Sorry - unable to recall price range but guarantee that it would vary based upon what the chef presents seasonally. Plenty of options nearby anyhow - just have to walk out the door and choose.

I would consider it high end in terms of pricing but the food was delicious. If my memory serves me correctly we paid around $120 a head with wine.

Description
At Jellyfish we aim to source and serve daily a school of 8 to 14 species of fish, to learn about and understand the textures and specific qualities of each species so we can then recommend the best way to cook and serve it. Our chefs create sauces, batters and crumbs as well as an extensive range of side dishes that perfectly compliment the meal. Absolute riverfront, this is arguably the best located restaurant in Brisbane enjoying striking views of the river and the Story Bridge. The décor is fresh and bright with the lines between indoors and out delightfully blurred.We offer a superior wine list of boutique, eclectic and lesser known vineyards as well as firm favourites from the new and old world. Service in the restaurant, the 35-seat Private Dining Room and in our newly expanded bar is always gracious, friendly and relaxed.
