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 fully functional, 15-person spa bath, and enough alcohol to fill it twenty times over.

Fantastic service and a great atmosphere. Simple menu means a quick decision but all the photos on the wall means a long lingering discussion of "do you remember when..." if you are of a certain age.

Went for anniversary.. The service was great.. the meal was great..apart from my partners meal being a lot later to the table than mine... refunded appropriately.. I am not one to winge at all.... but... however wtf..a bottle of cab sav cost $75 plus.. how do you justify a $36 meal with a $75 bottle of wine, which was a typical standard wine, I ordered a bottle thinking it would be reasonable about $35 - 40, was very shocked to see my credit card after 3 bottles.. !!! Just be aware..

We went for Saturday lunch and it was very quiet. The water had also been removed from the spa downstairs and it smelled. The steak was delicious and the service good.

Les Bubbles is an amazing gourmet experience everyone should try. Their website set a high expectation for their one and only main course, and we were not disappointed. The entree salad was divine and the steak was exquisite. The french fries were so good, I will never be happy with McD's chips ever again.

The ambience was really nice for our anniversary date. We saw a few families with their children, but noticed there isn't anything on the menu for young kids except a plate of chips.

Also, we were surprised on paying that the sparkling water was $10 and not complimentary.

The food as always is amazing. The service was friendly and inviting. The seating was a little awkward as we were in the middle at the front and in the way of people going to their booth next to us and staff walking back and forth.

Absolutely loved this place! Steak is cooked to perfection and the taste is incredible. 2 of our party had the Salmon which they said was absolutely beautiful. The service was great and the cheese cake cocktail was surprisingly enjoyed by all 8 of us! Desserts also a hit (brownie was so good). Can't fault it, absolutely love the fit out too! Thank you! we'll be back

Found their website, looked cool, I love old buildings repurposed, and loved they continued to showcase the history as well.

Booked via online reservations, had been running late, phoned to advise, and the maitre de was happy to keep the reservation (only arrived 15minutes late).

Upon arrival, the place looked cool. Warm greeting, and quick seating and ordered our drinks.

Was not expecting the green salad entre, but the entire meal, entre, mains (OMG! That steak...!) and our dessert was awesome!!!

We had a bottle of white to complement the occasion.

Parking is very difficult, I'd suggest the Secure Park opposite in the Chinatown mall. The height restriction is 1.9m, so no roof racks!!

Overall, totally recommend this place, and we will definitely return, well worth the drive from Montville.

Cheers guys and girls!

Ostensibly they do one thing, steak frites, but they do it better than most cafes in Paris. Desserts may rotate so if you're after something particular you might want to check ahead. Otherwise don't hesitate.

Went for my 19th birthday with a couple of friends and the food was to die for. The only thing is I wish i chose a different sauce. Not a fan of coconut . Overall the staff was amazing; salad and steak was amazing. I loved having the salad as a first course. Cocktails were abit pricey for such a small drink. But overall was a good night, thank you

Beautiful Steak, My only thing was I dont like a salad before my meal, i like it with, otherwise the steak and a whole lot of chips is just too fatty for me, the salad was beautiful, served with my steak would have been really nice, but we had a booking for 10 and we all loved the food service and ambience.

It wasnt a plessant day for me. The website was false advertising about the parking validation at China Town Secured Parking. After two times of the validation, I still got charged $15 for the parking (I actually went back to the restaurant again for second validation, because when I tried to get out from the parking the screen was showing outstanding amount of $15 so I had to go back for second validation). Important to note that the staff was pretty confidence about their validation and she was telling me that if I still get charged for the parking fees, they are happy to provide me a refund for that. After paying the parking fees, I headed back to the restaurant and seeked for help with regards to the issue, however I was rejected by the staff and said their manager was quite busy and didnt have time to speak with me. She asked me to leave my number and the manager would ring me back regarding to the matter. It has been 3 days and I have not even received a call or email from them. I will definitely not going back to this restaurant again, false advertising and bad services.

Lovely place but you need to understand before going that the menu is limited to 3 dishes for entree/main course. Salad, Steak and fries. Nothing else. I know it’s their theme but a bit boring for us. Good to try but won’t be going back.
