Several bottles of wine are lined up against a heritage brick wall with an elegant pendant light above.

The Verdict

An intimate, modern Australian bistro with only 35 seats, Clarence is an eatery nestled inside a heritage red brick building in Woolloongabba's emerging Clarence Corner precinct. Updating regularly, the carefully curated menu is devised by chef Ben McShane with a selection of interesting flavours to excite the adventurous foodie in you. 

Expect produce sourced weekly to ensure the best ingredients of the season land on your plate, with dishes such as pig head terrine with peas, grapefruit and ginger, or asparagus with clams, bourride and espelette pepper. If you still have room for dessert, why not try an apricot and botrytis mille feuille or a rhubarb meringue pie with anise hyssop ice cream?

When it comes to the drinks, select from a considered range of exclusively local beverages with a 20-bottle wine list and a carefully hand-picked spirit selection.

The rustic building has mostly been maintained and kept in its original form to create a laid-back, neighbourhood setting with a small upstairs area set aside for private dining.
