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.

I love the fact that this reataurant has limited food options- just steak & chips. Perfect if you are on a tight time frame! I took my son along and we had a great night. The staff were really friendly and offered suggestions to make the night just right. Well done. One of my favorite restaurants.

Staff seemed unhappy. It had no atmosphere and the steaks we had were both inconsistent in cuts of meat. Since new ownership has taken over the place seems unprofessional and sloppy. We won’t be back. A great place ruined.

Always a pleasure coming to Les Bubbles, steak always fantastic (rare is the winner) and generous meal portions. Great wines and customer service is always friendly and accommodating. Great for date night or friendly gathering. Check out the hidden bar downstairs which is great for events!

Best entrecôte we’ve had in Brisbane - perfectly cooked! Friendly, fantastic service. Delicious cocktails!! The whiskey sour was spot on and the waiter made a brilliant impromptu mocktail for our 11 year old - which he loved. We are happy we’ve found Les Bubbles and will definitely return.

We went on a busy Saturday night so expected it to be busy, however we were sat right near the cash register so every time someone got up to pay we had a strangers a in our faces while trying to eat, especially wonderful when some middle age man is slapping his lady partner on the a while we were trying to eat mere centermeters away. We had a terrible experience due to this and left as soon as we could without having dessert or anymore drinks which was a shame as it was my partners birthday. Apart from this the steak was also fatty and terrible. This is my second bad experience in a row here, won’t be back.

The great thing about this place is you do not have to decide what to eat for dinner but what to eat for dessert or to drink. I would how ever fault it by saying that there was no indicstion that the Bath house down stairs as booked for a private event. Was a little awkward going down there only to be told to leave as they were booked.

I normally love Les Bubbles. The food and service is normally amazing but unfortunately last Saturday it was not. I dined with my partner and his family. It started off well once we sat at our table but unfortunately it went down hill from there. I asked for gluten free entree as my partner is coeliac. We were firstly given regular bread. Easy mistake so I asked them to change it. Later on the replacement bread was forgotten and when I went to ask for a follow up we were given frozen bread. I told the lady it was frozen and she did not apologise and just switched it without saying a word. I then felt like I was annoying the waitress for constantly following up and didn’t feel welcome in the store at all. The amount of times I catched 2 waitresses looking at our table as if they were clearly talking about me. When we received our meals (5 meals) every single person received perfectly medium-rare steak and mine was clearly rare. Everyone at the table including my partners parents commented on how the waitresses must not like me for deciding to give me frozen bread, rare steak and subconsciously not being friendly at all with me. I decided not to let them know about this because I felt as if I was being a nuisance for them. I normally highly recommend Les Bubbles as the #1 steak place in Brisbane, so I’m hoping the service will improve the next time we’re in.

Steak was tough unfortunately. I’ve been to les bubbles many times and this was by far the least enjoyable. The salad didn’t have enough dressing. You no longer serve French butter. And my steak was tough.

Great spot, just a pity the bar downstairs was closed on the night we went as we couldn't have a pre dinner drink.
We also wanted to order coffee at the end of the night, but were told we couldn't because the coffee machine had been cleaned!

The service was great! Our waiter was very attentive and cheery and there was plenty of fries and sauces! When we forgot to mention an allergy, the waitress happily replaced out salad. Meal was a little on the salty side but it was a fun night anyways.

Would definitely try again and would highly recommend. Great atmosphere :D

Steaks seem to be getting less charred over time and coming off a bit “broiled” we have noticed a couple of visits it feels like they aren’t getting enough heat transfer. More heat quicker cook please! And more grain!

They have basically one option on the menu and boy do they do that well!

Since first going there in August this year, I’ve been back 5 times.

Amazing selection of sauces and everyone I’ve brought with me would agree.

Used to love going to les bubbles for a reasonable steak. But the quality has gone down a lot. The steak used is a poorer quality, really fatty & thin & chewy. The salad portion has also noticeably decreased. So for the price, I would say it is not worth it anymore, you can get a similar piece of steak (probably bigger) at a pub and it’ll cost cheaper or pay a bit more and go to a nice restaurant/steakhouse. I assume this is why it’s not as busy as before.
This time around the waitress was average as well. She kept interrupting to check on our meal several times in a span of 40 mins (once or twice is fine). She also forgot what dessert we ordered and wanted to give us the bill before the dessert even arrived (we had not past our seating time). So really inattentive! All other times we’ve been here, the service has been really good, but this time it was a let down.

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
