Bringing Intamacy And Good Food Together
Brisbane's New Farm is home to many buzzing cafés, bistros and international cuisine. A twist to this mix, is the impressive wine bar, Anise.

Anise prides itself on pairing full bodied wines from across the globe with Michelin quality courses. The standard of food and the service provided is outstanding for an intimate location such as this.

A friend and I headed over for one of their degustation banquettes and it was safe to say this was quite an experience.

Although small in size, tucked in next to Gerties, Anise, is known for its cosmopolitin upmarket clientele who will take their hard earned dollars to spend at this mouthwatering establishment.

Entering the venue you are welcomed by the head barman, who acts as gatekeeper to a phenomenal selection of wines, beers and spirits from around the globe.

We were seated immediately (the perks of dining at lunchtime midweek) right on the bar where we experienced the action upfront.

We began with a taste test of some wines that would be accompanying us through our two hour culinary journey.

It's impossible to list absolutely every item we had in detail, but safe to say it was a delectable journey that I would not hesitate to complete again.

Each dish was crafted to perfection with an array of intricate flavours. Gorgeous wine was something I had not experienced before (being a fan of just the $15 basic). I was blown away by the perfect pairing from our barman.

One stand out dish (this is only because I am a massive pasta fan) was the Almond Risotto. Topped with almond flakes it was cooked to perfection and was a real nice tummy warmer. Each dish was equally great, but this was my dining hero.

Anise is a great location for a lunch with a girlfriend, a dinner date with your love or simply even on your own to take your time and to really enjoy the atmosphere. Open for lunch and dinner on selected days (see information in review listing) Anise is a must on the fine dining Brisbane circuit.
