Bringing the Venzin Group’s signature flair for hospitality to Wellington Point, Citron Bayside is all about all-day bistro-style dining with a Mediterranean feel. You definitely won’t feel like you’re in Brisbane seated out on the breezy patio under the gold and white-striped umbrellas—bright pops of yellow, polished concrete floors, marble tabletops and white furniture all help to add serious Mediterranean vibes.
The daytime menu is split into all-day breakfasts and shared lunch feeds, depending on what you’re in the mood for. If it’s brunching, waver over whether to order the likes of spiced tomato and capsicum shakshuka and buttermilk pancakes, while the lunch section is best enjoyed as a group, starting with small plates of crisp Za’atar squid and lamb meatballs, before moving on to larger plates like roast lamb shoulder and whole baked rainbow trout.
Dinner is a similar spread of light, coastal dishes covering seafood, salads and vegetable options, all designed to share, with mezze and aperitivo available over the afternoons. If you’re already picturing yourself slurping back oysters and nibbling olives while you sip on a spritz, the drinks menu has plenty to offer, including a curated list of international wines, beers and four signature spritzes.
