Maeve is a wine bar.
We are open 7 days from 4pm daily serving until midnight. Our European inspired menu offers snacks and shared plates, or something more substantial, and our beautiful heritage space offers bar seating and dining room options. We take reservations but you are welcome to walk in any time! Come find us on the corner of Melbourne and Grey Streets upstairs at 39 Melbourne St, South Brisbane.
At Maeve, we take wine seriously so you don’t have to. The wines we offer are the wines we like to drink. Our dynamic and ever-changing list has a focus on smaller producers who have integrity about what they do from all the corners of the wine making globe. There are many wines available by the glass, making it easy to try something new. We have an approachable every day wine list, a seriously celebratory reserve wine list and we also offer beer, spirits, cocktails and non-alcoholic options - Maeve has something for everyone.

We had the most wonderful evening!!
Service of floor staff was the perfect balance and professional.
Upon arrival it was busy and very noisy but as majority of theatre crowd left, the acoustics improved.
The food was outstanding and everything that we chose from the menu was perfect.
The scorched meringue dessert exceeded our expectations!
We will be regular diners.

Gorgeous, intimate interior. Wine list was comprehensive with some interesting and refreshing inclusions. Service was prompt, professional and attentive. The highlight dish was a small plate of black garlic waffles with wine jelly and blue cheese parfait.

One of many return visits to this well situated wine bar. Just the ticket after a busy Sunday out and about. We ate lightly- having been to lunch- but chose well. The hangar steak with the cassoulet was mouth-watering and just the right amount after the must-have black waffles. We drank wine by the glass (being Sunday and all) and both the rose and the Pinot recommended by the knowledgeable staff were excellent. Well done Maeve.

Absolutely amazing!! We went there for a meal before the theatre- location excellent, right across the road from QPAC. The food was to die for!! My partner and I shared some small share plates and a few large share plates and entrees - was not let down in the slightest. Our cocktails were also delicious. The service was great! Very welcoming. Only put the value at three stars because we planned to enjoy our night. Everything was absolutely exquisite! Can’t recommend enough!

We shared several plates between 3. Every single one we would order again. Service prompt but not rushed. A very drinkable Chardonnay at an affordable price. Very well located if you have something on at QPAC. A bit noisy but not unbearable.

This was our debut visit and we came away with a buzz. The food was unique and delicious. Subtle oysters to start, the awesome black waffle next, followed by lightly seared kingfish and the magnificant baba to round out the night. Brilliant from start to finish. Combined with a couple of interesting cocktails and wines, my partner rated it her favourite meal ever. Hard to disagree really. A great addition to Brisbane dining. M & K

An excellent wine list with delicious share plates to accompany. The location is fantastic, in the cultural centre precinct of Brisbane - make sure you book on a weekend night. The service was fantastic with attentive staff - our glasses were never empty! We look forward to another visit.

Food was only fair, bite size starters tasty but tiny , Steak only moderately warm, Porcheta was nice.
Champagne served without a bubbles , response from boss was that their glass washer is so efficient that the bubbles can't activate as the sides of glass are too smooth !
After much investigation, including an email to Champagne Comite' in France , all four of the experts that responded were unanimous that they are using the wrong detergent.
Staff generally not too aware of patrons, often walked past without looking to answer requests , however quite pleasant.
