We are a modern Australian gastropub located on the busy Post Office Square in the Brisbane CBD with a strong focus on local produce, craft beer, delicious cocktails and dynamic wines.

Like the neighbouring park, Isles Lane draws natural light and greenery inwards, creating an open, modern and verdant space, suited to house up to 400 guests.

With a delicious breakfast offering and coffee from a locally sourced roaster we are exceptional choice for breakfast in our CBD location.

For lunch and dinner the kitchen will bring a modern, gastropub flavour in waves of fresh and seasonal produce from the garden, pasture, sea and sky.

After sunset, Brisbane’s nightlife will replace the corporate crowd, with Isles Lane’s kitchen and bar set to remain open ‘til late seven days a week. In time, events and activations will showcase the iconic park, drawing families and social groups to a new community platform.

Our kitchen is available all day

We had a fabulous night. Even managed to change tables wit the assistance of the staff due to the noise. It was a great night and we will come back again...and again!

The staff were excellent including setting up the table with balloons for the birthday celebration. The booth style table was great for a family dinner. The food was delicious with ample servings. The only downside was that the lamb was a bit dry. Perhaps we should have spoken up earlier and asked for some extra sauce to go with it.

This was our first time to this restaurant and won't be the last.
Quality food at an affordable price, very good service and served quite quickly.
We both loved it and thoroughly enjoyed our meals.

I feels like the menu looks really good, portion are big, good value for money, however the food miss the mark in term of taste and presentation has the same garnish on every plate and lack of that wow factor. But everything else was good , service was great but no fresh juices a let down :(

The meal and the service was very underwhelming. There was no indication that it was table service and we felt very rushed to order our meal. For the price there was too much greenery with our mains. The chicken was undercooked and we where given bruised, old avocado. I would not recommend going here for a meal. Maybe for a drink with friends.

The staff at Isles Lane are fantastic - always friendly and speedy with their service.
I've been there 5 times and the food has been great every time.
I love the location - spilling out onto Post Office square gives it a good vibe.
And the steins are great value if you're having beers.
Recommend.

Went for a work lunch with a small group. All ordered the $12 rolls and most were really dry - meat overcooked. We had to ask for gravy to be able to eat them. Good selection of drinks and service was good. Set up is homely and relaxing.

I could not rave enough about this place! I went for the first time about 3 weeks ago with my work colleagues and the food was INCREDIBLE. Light, healthy, yet satisfying and incredibly tasty. What put the cherry on top was the amazing provided service by "Raka" (short blonde hair, petite frame, Asian heritage). I made a point of telling the manager the SECOND time I went. She was so attentive, polite, lovely and just great. She even suggested what dishes she 'highly recommended' in which we ordered and LOVED. We'll be back again and again. Well done everyone!

Have often been here for work meetings/coffee/drinks, but never to eat, and never at night. Saturday nights in the Brisbane CBD are always quiet so I didn't know what to expect. We arrived just as some other groups were leaving and had the place to ourselves for half an our or so before more groups arrived (it was early - 6.30pm). We basically had our own personal bar staff and chefs for most of our meal! Drinks service here is always great - they know how to make a grown-up's drink, but the food was surprisingly good too. We had haloumi chips to start (ALWAYS amazing), followed by share plates of beer can chicken, root vegetables with pickles and mustard, and some chat potatoes. This is great, low-key sophisticated dining in the heart of Brisbane, away from the tourist traps of South Bank and Eagle St Pier, and closer than the sometimes ho-hum Hamilton/Brett's Wharf strip. Can get noisy when full, but on a quieter night the atmosphere is great.

I met a friend for lunch recently at Isles Lane and really enjoyed it. The service was friendly and helpful and the food was really tasty and great value. There was a pretty decent wine list to choose from and our waitress made suggestions, which was great. I will be going back very soon to try the breakfast menu!

Had my first meal here after the venue evolved from being Rush the other day. Very impressed with the food and the changes made to the venue. I will definitely use it again for more business meals. It will also be interesting to see what it is like of an afternoon and evening when it is running more as a bar before the dinner crowd.

We booked a table for dinner on a Friday night, and although the staff were efficient and accommodating, it was incredibly noisy that it became unpleasant, so we decided to leave. We're not unaccustomed to busy bar/restaurant environments in Australia and overseas, but this was way too loud and noisy. Hopefully when we're next in Brisbane we can try Isles Lane again but perhaps during the week and not on a Friday night! I should also add that people going outside to take phone calls kept leaving their drinks on our table which was not only rude on their part, but annoying for us! (Note to anyone completing a review for Isles Lane, that the open table booking/review process is that you're unable to submit your review without rating your entire dining experience, even when you didn't eat at the restaurant, and therefore its unfair to Isles Lane!)
