Steakhouse
Bienvenue. Les Bubbles is a Parisian steakhouse on the corner of Wickham and Little Street in Fortitude Valley, forged in the very same building that housed the notorious illegal casino, bath-house and brothel at the centre of the Fitzgerald Inquiry. While the card decks and kerb servers are all but gone, the building’s colourful history remains pinned to every wall. Steak frites – known by many as the national dish of France – is the centrepiece of our menu. We sear the steak to your liking, before serving it with bread, salad, plenty of sauce and bottomless frites. Les Bubbles welcomes all, and as such, both vegetarian and pescatarian eaters will feel right at home. For any curious individuals, a change of scenery is available by wandering down a single flight of stairs. It’s there that you will find the Bath-House, featuring a full bar, banquet seating and a open-aired deck to enjoy a pre or post dinner cocktail!

Not sure what the steak was, rump I think. Was very tender bit a little bit of sinew. The sauce was excellent though. Chips a little overdone.

Great venue though and the desserts were excellent. Happy with the win selection but could be more by the glass.

For a place that prides itself on doing one thing well (steak) we sadly had one meal that was ordinary. The steak was at least one third fat and gristle. Very unappealing.
Chips however were great as was the steak carpaccio.
We would go again but I hope the quality control for the meat improves.

Always amazing!
It was obvious there was some new staff as a few things were different (they did not walk us to our table/ they took sauces away without asking if we were done/ left menus on table and delivered food)

However every time we go it’s amazing and these small things can be overlooked due to the quality of food and friendly service.

Thank you

I have dined here before and loved the food, but the steak was way to charred this time. We didn't finish our food and weren't asked how our meal was at the end. A bit disappointing.

I’ve been there several times now and mostly it’s been good.

The steak this time was average, quite fatty and undercooked.
This said, I would rather just go with it, as sending food back holds up others trying to eat, just my preference.
I did tell the waiter about this after our meal.

We ordered a bottle of Pinot Gris, but they didn’t have what we ordered, so they substituted with a cheaper, but still charge us the same 🤦🏼‍♂️

Was such a lovely night, the entrees were tasty and the main was pretty good, definitely recommend the 4th sauce, worth the money! Also the Gin and Lychee Mojito was to die for.

Steak and frites is great, but the last couple of times, steak quality has been variable. If you're not into heavily char-grilled steaks, the current chef might not he a good choice for you. Steaks will tend to come out 1 degree rarer than expected because of the heavy char style of cooking.

Bottomless sauces and fries are fantastic and service is pretty good.

Staff were perfect and professional and food was delicious. Good timing with food and drinks.
It was clean and tidy.
Best place if you want steak and chips or would like to try bone marrow for the first time.

No menu choices but call yourself a “steakhouse” and service was extremely poor considering it was a quiet night. Went to the bar to order drinks after waiting for 15 minutes and we’re told to go back to our seats and we will be served. Yes your steak was good but not even being able to choose what steak or what sauce I wanted was surprising. Staff could not even pronounce my friend’s drink request initially, but the staff were generally quite pleasant but inexperienced. Steak was as good as some other places I have been for less money

The vegetarian dish came out cold. Twice.

The service was short and rude.

We had such hopes and we’re looking forward to it. Disappointing.

Steaks cooked rare not medium rare, but we’d waited 45 mins and didn’t have time to send them back. Very fatty chunks on a few of them. Only 3 tables in the restaurant when we arrived but took 10 mins to get asked about drinks. Served salad and bread first and we assumed steaks would come as well but then they came to clear the salad plates to make room on the table. Very disappointing meal for our family of 5.

Had a great experience! Before coming, I texted the restaurant for my dietary requirements and they responded swiftly! Would love it more if the frites can be fried in vege oil instead of beef fat, didn’t get to enjoy bottomless frites due to this :( But overall, soooo worth it!
