Pause is a surprising find on the green Northern edge of Brisbane in Samford Village. Just 25 mins from the CBD finds you comfortably entertained in our al fresco dining area, or inside our air-conditioned rooms, with a menu in hand that is sure to excite.

Our Italian Chefs craft their dishes from scratch, with emphasis on locally grown produce, much of which is grown in Samford. Fresh, simple, quality ingredients are masterfully plated with European flair, complemented by a generous wine list with both Australian and International offerings.

We love entertaining groups (especially Birthdays!), and have a large Deck overlooking the Valley that can accomodate groups up to 24. We can cater for up to 90 guests dining, or 125 "cocktail" service with small plates and canapés.

We are perhaps best known for our 7-8 course "Leave it to Chef" degustation, which parades 5 courses of food from our current menu across your table. It's a special experience, and highly recommended.
