A long leisurely lunch or a quick bite at Montrachet.

For more than a decade, French cuisine-loving Brisbanites made a beeline to Paddington for soufflés, steak frites and Friday night five-course degustations — that is until Montrachet moved to Bowen Hills' King Street in 2017.

It was a case of onwards and upwards for the award-winning restaurant, which not only set up shop in bigger digs, but also added another venture to the mix. Located on the corner of King and Machinery streets, Montrachet's current 240-square-metre site offers twice as many seats as its previous location — great news for anyone who's tried to score a table at the always-popular bistro — as well as a cellar.

Indulgent diners can find the likes of double baked soufflé with crab meat and gruyere cheese, seafood bouillabaisse and Grand Marnier brûlée on offer for sitdown meals from the seasonal menu — or the whole-table chef's menu for $145 per person is an ideal way to sample the restaurant's best. Unsurprisingly, cheese is a big dessert feature, and the wine list runs to 34 pages.

The move marked a big change for Montrachet, after current owners Shannon and Clare Kellam came onboard back in 2015.

A visit to Montrachet should be on the cards for any Brisbane foodie — especially anyone who loves decadent French cuisine.
