Excellent food and service, highly recommend. Free appetizer was a nice surprise and delicious. There were many places to eat in this riverside area but this one was a bit quieter for a nice couples dinner.

The decor and location of Jellyfish are superb. The view of Storey Bridge at night is stunning and the riverside promenade is great for people watching. The service is friendly but not up to standard for these high prices. Our waitress cleared some plates before...More

Jellyfish came highly recommended and didn’t disappoint. The whole fried Moses Perch (boneless) was one of the best fish meals I’ve ever had. As someone who wouldn’t normally order a fish main, I’d certainly come here for my ‘fish fix’ next time in Brisbane. A...More

Hi Lovetoeatfancy, firstly great name. Secondly, thank you for the great feedback and review of your recent dining experience with us. We hope to see you and your family dining with us again very soon.

Very ordinary and overpriced food. The wait staff would be more at home in a country town RSL club. Avoid at all cost if you are looking for fine food and service; it is an overpriced tavern.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.
