The only day that this intriguing, fancy little Bistro is closed is on a Sunday. Otherwise E'CCO is open Tuesday to Friday from 12pm-2:30pm and 6pm-12am.

The décor at E'CCO is warm and inviting, paired with charismatic and friendly staff. If you're planning a night out with some good friends or partner E'CCO will not disappoint. Unfortunately there is no outdoor seating, but on the bright side this means you'll get to stare into those heart stopping eyes on a first date without distractions.
This little bistro has kept fans coming back for more since its establishment in 1995. In 2010, the E'CCO in Brisbane added an "E'CCO Bar", located below the Bistro. E'CCO has a seasonal menu so to ensure quality fresh food. However they do stick to certain dishes due to popular demand.
If you like green eggs and ham, sir or ma'am, then put E'CCO on your "must visit list". This may sound strange but the bistro does actually serve Green eggs and Serrano Ham with Beurre Noisette. Also available is Eye fillet, Banana Tarte Tartin, Gnocchi and Confit Duck paired with Candied Walnuts and Balsamic Riddicho. Yes, quite a delicious mouthful.
For the little less adventurous, E'CCO offers baked apple crumble, herb-crusted lamb, duck and roast potatoes, steak, seared scallops and of course salad for the health-conscious.
Be warned, this is not the cheapest of Bistros, and neither is it easy to get into (there is a waiting list that can get rather long at times).
But have no fear! One can merely enjoy a drink or two at the bar while waiting. Some advice for the gentlemen – if you really want to impress that sexy fox of a lady on a first date, E'CCO is the place to go.
The Bistro will teach you the difference between a "good chef" and a "god of the kitchen". If you need to impress someone on a first date, anniversary, proposal or birthday E'CCO is the place to take them.
Be prepared to pay some big money for quality food for that special someone, add it to the birthday gift, hide the ring in the green eggs and prepare yourself for a culinary experience you definitely won't forget. It's something you can tell the grandkids about one day.
