Summit Restaurant & Bar, Mt Cootha, Brisbane

Feast your eyes on the stunning vistas across Brisbane City.   

 

A view so breathtakingly beautiful, the chances of enjoying your dining experience here are already high.   An added bonus for this choice was an email I had received that morning with a $20 voucher to use at the restaurant on weekdays.  No need to print, just show it on your phone.   Decision made easyšŸ‘.

Within an easy drive of Brisbane City, Mt Cootha overlooks the Botanical Gardens,p, with continued views across the city to Moreton Bay.  A popular viewing destination for visitors and locals alike.  There is plenty to do on the mountain, with the added choice of two dining venues once the hunger pains set in.

 
On this occasion we took the opportunity of enjoying one of those rare week days off work, with a visit to the Summit Rstaurant.

Seated outside on an incredibly gorgeous winters day, the wonderful feeling of relaxation and being on top of the world set in.

Service here was impeccable from our arrival.   Friendly, very helpful, amusing yet still very professional.   These staff had it all.

There is a lunch set menu here if you prefer to stick to a budget.   Under $20 for one $30 for two or under $40 for a three course meal.   Or you can choose from the a la carte menu, which we did today.

 
I chose the entree size scallop meal pictured above  as my main.  Soft, melt in your mouth scallops, teamed perfectly with the green pea tapenade.   Hubby’s choice was the fabulously presented  Wagyu rump meal.   Cooked to his liking, with veges wound so easily into the meal, he pushed none to the side (a surprising change!).  Literally finishing the entire meal with only a sparkling clean plate left!   Now for a person who side steps the vegetables on every opportunity, that really did tell you how much he enjoyed this menu choice!

With that wonderful chilled out, full belly feeling setting in, nothing to do with the wine of the coursešŸ˜„, the decision was required on finishing with dessert.  We had taken our time, enjoyed good a lingering lunch, so why not finish with a sweet treat. 

 Apple blossom poached pear.  I was intrigued with name of this dessert already.   Time to give it a try.   My decision, especially as a person who doesn’t always finish with dessert, this dish was simply delightful.  Every spoonful was a taste adventure in itself.   Loved it!

  
Hubby chose the churros, or in his words, the healthy option.   Again the presentation did not disappoint, and neither I’m told did the dish itself, with hubby enjoying his ‘healthy option’ choice.

Next time you visit Mt Coorha, allow yourself some time to enjoy a lingering lunch.   Not only will it give you more time to enjoy the fabulous view, you will also give your tastebuds an awesome experience.  

Look forward to returning soon, hopefully at night when the city is lit up!
