Our Food Philosophy

Goldfinch Brisbane is the city’s most glamorous destination to start your day with a leisurely breakfast, or grab a quick but indulgent bite with your morning takeaway coffee.

Lunch is always a crowd-pleaser with stonebaked sourdough pizzas, and Mediterranean-inspired dishes, alongside shareable antipasto platters, and light meals. Dinner is a more dramatic affair with sumptuous mains, delightful starters.

Local produce features across all our menus, with buffalo mozzarella from Byron Bay Cheese Co. on our sourdough pizzas, Fremantle Octopus served with chorizo, muhammara, green olive, grapefruit, as well as bread from Brisbane’s famous Brasserie Bread and Delizia’s Gelato & Sorbet.

Our talented baristas serve coffee by award-winning Brisbane-roasted Elixir, and our drinks menu is more than a side note with colourful cocktails, craft beers, and premium local and international wines.

We’re also proud to note our packaging is completely compostable and biodegradable as part of our commitment to sustainability.

Brisbane Hotel History

Goldfinch Restaurant and Street Café is part of Accor Hotel’s restaurant portfolio, and is found on the ground floor of Pullman & Mercure Brisbane King George Square complex.

Our location was one of Brisbane’s first international hotels when it opened as the Crest International and was frequented by visiting sports teams, ‘70s celebrities, global dignitaries, and business travellers.

Its most famous feature however is the underground tunnel that linked the Council chambers at Brisbane City Hall to the Goldfish Bar – famous for being the meeting and drinking place of choice for corrupt police and politicians in the height of the Fitzgerald era.

The Goldfish Bar closed in the 80s, and if you look closely you can spot our nod to the past in our logo for Goldfinch.
