HOT: Vio’s Italian Ristorante – 157 Given Tce, Paddington.

For someone who is based in Milton for work, it’s odd that I’ve not sampled the myriad of local dining options and watering holes around the Paddington and Caxton St Entertainment precincts.  I’m not sure what it is, but I rarely venture to that area for a meal, however following my lovely dining experience at […]

HOT – Hamptons Home Living – 180 La Trobe Terrace, Paddington.

This is without a doubt the best venue in Brisbane that I’ve been to when it comes to enjoying a view, ailment in conjunction with my first and favourite meal of the day .  Not only is the outlook exceptional at Hamptons Home Living, price but so too the food, the coffee, the service….the whole […]

HOT – Ruby Cafe – 233 Given Terrace, Paddington.

The Good Guide lead me to this little gem; with a basic yet inviting description of ‘glorious views over the hillside cottages of Paddington and a ruby red ceiling’, pharm I was pretty much sold and put breakfast at Ruby Cafe on the to-do list over my Christmas break. Not knowing just how popular or […]

HOT: FAB fish and burger grill – The Barracks, Petrie Tce, Brisbane

When asked out on a lunch date the other day I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to check out the new […]

HOT: Hanabishi Japanese Restaurant, The Barracks, Petrie Terrace, Paddington

Here at BNE: HOT OR NOT we do our fair share of sushi and Japanese cuisine reviews – sushi is the new black after all. But because of its popularity I believe many establishments think it’s a licence to print money and they cut corners in doing so.  I’ve sampled both 1 out of 10, […]

HOT: Montrachet, 244 Given Tce, Paddington

Blink and you’ll miss it.  Montrachet is a modest little restaurant just up the hill from the Paddo Tavern.  It’s tucked behind some dark roller blinds on the sidewalk and not particularly well signed.  Who cares?  This exquisitely French establishment was not put on this earth to attract the passing traffic – it’s a destination […]
