When you arrive at Joey's Restaurant, you wait at the reception to be seated, unless you want to order takeaway. All the tables are on the ample deck overlooking the Brisbane River and the city.

The tables are undercover to enjoy the coolness of the shade on summer days. When it is cold, there are heaters on the deck. The place has a relaxed atmosphere and people can talk freely, without competing with loud music.

My own experience

Travelling on Main Street, I have passed Joey's Restaurant a few times and one spring morning, I decided to stop for a coffee. I parked the car along the road, just in front of Joey's Restaurant and near the stainless steel sculpture named Venus Rising.

Joey's remind me of those coffee shops and restaurants in the main square of the towns in Italy. Joey's presents itself in pastel colours, with big light blue umbrellas, with waiters welcoming the customers and busing themselves around the tables. The barista is busy making coffee non-stop and here and there to take orders too.

Certainly, Joey's has incomparable views of the city skyline and Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.

After ordering my coffee, I sat on a bench under the light blue umbrellas, which almost match the blue of the Queensland sky.
It is the perfect place to relax with a cup of coffee whilst enjoying the views over the city.

When I finished my coffee, I took a stroll in the square and the little park adjacent to the square.

The sculpture Venus Raising has been designed by the artist Wolfgang Buttress and placed in its location in 2012. Venus Rising took inspiration from the Fibonacci Spiral, as well as the intersecting spines of a Nautilus Shell. The structure stands 23 metres high overlooking the Brisbane River.
