Fish Lane Bistro At The Fox Hotel, South Brisbane

The team at Fish Lane Bistro at The Fox Hotel are serving delicious pub style food thatâ€™s big on flavour.
Their menu focuses on fresh, vibrant ingredients and injects it with either an Asian flair or a Mediterranean twist.
The room is small but bustling with the busy kitchen spread across the back wall, showcasing the team led by head chef Jonno Bryant, who has worked in kitchens across Brisbane such as Peasant, Cabiria and Cha Cha Char. Chalkboards line the wall, tantalizing diners with dishes on offer. Although the bistro is separated from the noisy pub next door, windows allow a peek into the bar and create a convivial, fun environment.
I recently attended a dinner at Fish Lane Bistro and was amazed at the quality of dishes served. There is no stodgy pub food at Fish Lane! Mushy peas and stinky fish pies are not to be found here with the menu instead featuring dishes such as gin-cured Tasmanian salmon tartare with a cucumber salad. Any dish that includes gin in it is bound to be delicious and this tartare was no exception. The perfectly cut cubes of salmon were fresh and inviting with capers and lemon brightening the dish that had your fork constantly returning for more. Or at least mine certainly did! And of course, being the affable person that I am, I offered to help a friend finish her dish of tartare as well!
These delicious dishes are continued throughout the menu, evident in the spit roasted tiger prawns or the twice-baked manchego cheese soufflÃ©. Seriously, how could anyone ever go past a cheese soufflÃ©?!
Another standout dish is the sticky wagyu short ribs with a hot and sour herb salad. This wagyu fell apart under my spoon and had a serious kick behind it with its fiery chilli and coriander salad.
So if youâ€™re after a mid-week dinner without any fuss, head to Fish Lane Bistro. You will not be disappointed by their stellar menu, friendly service and delicious food.
