Bacchus Bistro

Went to Bacchus before leaving Brisbane. It came on a recommendation and we went searching for them on the web and found their website. Had a look and it seems pretty interesting. Set, we are going! It was only later that we realised that they have only opened for 3 weeks and haven't had their official launch yet!

The chef was actually in one of the restaurants on "My restaurant Rules" and was the head chef at Cha Cha Char until recently when he resigned to open up Bacchus.

We got to Bacchus and it has a really nice atmosphere. The sommelier was really friendly and knows his wine. We were introduced to some good ones. After a bit of conversation, we were kindly reminded to order. Oops!

Entree - Chilli-salt squid with green papaya, Asian herbs, peanuts, lime and sugar syrup

Entree - Pork Belly with Asparagus and Scallop

Entree - Braised New England Farmed Rabbit, Tagliatelle, Autumn Vegetables and Truffle Essence
These were some of the entrees that we ordered. I had the Braised Rabbit. It definitely had a slightly different texture and you could really taste the truffle.

Mains - Baked Fillet of Snapper, Sandcrab crust, Cauliflower puree, Tempura Florets

Mains - Crispy Duck with Broad Beans and Cabbage
The Mains came shortly after and I had the crispy duck. The cabbage was really nice and sweet which complimented the saltiness of the duck really well. The duck skin was really crispy as well while the meat was soft and tears off easily.

Dessert - Chocolate Fondant with Almond Ice-cream
We finally ended a long and great dinner with dessert. I had the chocolate fondant. It wasn't too rich which was good as I was already feeling pretty full with food and wine. It went well with the almond ice cream. Hot and cold, teases your taste sensations! We also ordered the cheese platter. I do recommend it, they had some really good cheeses which I can't remember the names now even though I specifically did ask the waitstaff again.
I definitely recommend this place if you're in Brisbane. Good Food and value for money!
