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.

Not what we expected. Limited menu and noisy. Designed and caters for a younger generation. I would like other dishes on menu such as chicken, lamb and pork. Noise level from club below made it difficult to understand the waiters

Really enjoyable meal, steak was as usual cooked perfectly and the frites were excellent. The salad was a little underwhelming and the cocktails were ovepriced, but really you go for the steak and fries, which didn't disappoint.

I have eaten here many times and it has always been outstanding. Unfortunately, on this occasion my steak was blue and I was unable to cut through the majority of it, even with a steak knife! I had to leave half of it on the plate which was disappointing. As always, the staff were wonderful.

Staff were very helpful, always asking if we needed anything and constantly filling up our water glasses. I know everyone goes for the steak but I actually really enjoyed the salad and bread starters, the steak was great too. The atmosphere was good. The cocktails are a bit expensive. Overall great experience.

My steak was very good but my partner's was undercooked (she requested medium but it was close to rare) and very fatty. The creme brulee I had for dessert was lacking in flavour. I thought that steak, chips, and a simple salad for $36 was not good value. Very overpriced. We enjoyed the experience (first time visitors) but would not return because of the high price.

I didnt have very high expectations for this place but went along because my partner had read good reviews. It proved to be a really pleasant surprise. The steak was delicious and the service efficient and attentive. The wine list was pretty good and if you are a fan of liquid desert, i can definatley recommend the cheesecake cocktail. Would recommend for a fun night out with friends.

Easy booking, table spaces are very cramped, food amazing though, especially the chocolate pudding. I find the meal pricey though for what it is, ( a plate of steak & chips) but it was a lovely meal out. Would certainly go again.

Excellent service from the staff, steaks were perfect for a customer with a passion for red meat!
Pre-dinner salad spot-on!
Three cheers for the complimentary bread, and the prompt water re-fills - that is very French, however, a small but noticeable detail!
Desserts afterwards awesome.

Well done and thanks Les Bubbles. Will definitely come back again!

It was a girls catch up and the service was friendly,fast and efficient.
The standard menu means splitting the bill is a breeze.
Steaks are wonderfully tender and goes well with a nice glass of red.
A great night was had by all, although the music was a little loud for us , as we had plenty to discuss.

I have been to Bubbles 10+ times easily. Every single time the meal is served fast, the steak is cooked perfectly and everything is delicious. Wait staff are always attentive without being overbearing. My favourite steak in Brisbane by a considerable degree. I recommend Bubbles to basically everyone.
