We love it when a busy restaurant doesn't look down their noses when you reveal that you dont have a booking. In this case, the maitre d' took us directly to a nice table with a smile. Food was excellent, if quite expensive but if...More

Good location and friendly wait staff, but service from the kitchen was slow - almost 1hr for first course. Fish was also slightly over-cooked.

I have been to Jellyfish a few times but not for ages and the food and service was still excellent. It's a must do when visiting Brisbane for the view and atmosphere plus the amazing food combinations and fresh fish

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.

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.
