Our Philosophy

Melrose brings an Indonesian and Thai inspired restaurant and rooftop to Brisbane’s very own Oxford Street. Our philosophy is simple, at Melrose we escape the ordinary.


With our Head Chef Arte Assavakavinvong leading the way, you can be sure to expect plenty of flavour and heat. Our menu showcases flavours that accentuate the classic Thai and Indonesian flavours, made from fresh Australian produce.


Melrose is Brisbane’s new Indonesian escape, in a time when travelling overseas seems far out of reach – inspired by owners Giorgina Venzin and Chris Hollingsworth’s culinary travels to Bali and Thailand.


Our unique cocktails have been carefully designed to complement the flavours of your plate, as well as our extensive selection of over 60 bottles of wine. Melrose is the ideal destination to gather with friends and family and bask in the Queensland sunshine, with breezes flowing from our retracting roofs.


Melrose is open for dinner from Wednesday through to Sunday, and lunch from Friday to Sunday. Bar snacks are available from 3pm to 4pm on Friday to Sunday.


We are a flight of stairs above our sibling venue, Darvella Patisserie. It’s easy to find us at the river end of Oxford Street, just a short ferry trip across the river from Brisbane City. Our friendly and passionate team look forward to welcoming you into our Indonesian escape.
