Ambrosia & Co

A Mediterranean hideaway in Bulimba.

If Mediterranean cuisine gets your stomach rumbling, then prepare to drop by Bulimba's newest restaurant. Or spend a few hours eating, drinking and being merry, to be more accurate. Given the kinds of morsels and tipples served up at Ambrosia & Co — and dishes of the Greek, Middle Eastern, Moroccan, Spanish and Turkish variety, too — no one wants to rush.

We're talking about Tunisian mesfouf (aka cous cous porridge) and a matcha green tea with banana for breakfast, a gyros platter for a later-in-the-day meal, and mushroom and celeriac lasagne for a hearty dinner — and that's just one set of options. Those fond of charcuterie boards really do owe it to themselves to try the Mediterranean selection of cured meats, olives, bread and accompaniments, while paella fans will find meat, vegetarian and seafood on offer.

That's your hunger well and truly satisfied, with a sizeable wine, cocktail and coffee list primed to cater for your thirst as well. Caffeinated brew-wise, Ambrosia & Co is the first venue in Brisbane to stock Bulimba's own Quaff Coffee. Those after a boozy treat have a wealth of choices, though the Turkish Delight (with vanilla vodka, creme de cacao, montenegro, rosewater, and the titular sweet) is always going to be hard to pass up.
