Picture this: a perfectly portioned entree of beautiful flavour combinations followed by a deliciously tasty main course and a light and sweet dessert that looks as good as it tastes. Got it? Now picture this: it's only $30.

Yes, you read correctly. The Eatery (the in-house restaurant at Brisbane's newly constructed CBD hotel Four Points by Sheraton) is ticking all the boxes when it comes to weekday dining options. This hidden gem, situated on level two of the hotel on Mary Street, is seriously worth stepping off the main road for.

Patrons are treated to a three-course Market Express Lunch for only $30 or two courses for $24.95, the usual all-you-can-eat breakfast buffets and, on Friday and Saturday nights, a fresh seafood buffet for only $55.

The menu showcases wonderful fresh and seasonal Queensland produce but takes your tastebuds around the world, drawing inspiration from Asia, America and Italy. Think entrees of wild mushroom risotto with portobellos, mascarpone, preserved lemon and shaved pecorino or five-hour slow-roasted pork belly with cauliflower puree, sous vide mustard apple balls and a sticky Cumberland sauce. For mains, diners have the choice of dishes like the chef-made saffron fettuccine, Thai green curry, pan-fried prawns in Napoli sauce or spice rub chicken with house-made corn bread and mint and coriander relish.

If you have enough room for dessert (it's highly recommended that you do), you'll have the choice of light and fruity — a vacherin of fresh fruit with meringue, ice cream and smoked apple jelly — or something a bit more decadent, tiramisu with a shot of espresso and chocolate soil. For the savoury fans, there is also the cheese plate of epic proportions that could easily be shared between three.

The Eatery is a perfect venue for a city business lunch or grazing for a few hours catching up with friends. With three courses for only $30, you really can't put a foot wrong.
