Our Philosophy

Melrose brings a contemporary Asian restaurant and cocktail bar 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. Melrose offers an alternative dining experience, focusing on a menu curated to share, using locally sourced produce and traditional technique. 


Our unique cocktails have been carefully designed to complement the flavours of your plate, as well as our extensive selection of over 80 bottles of wine. Melrose is the ideal destination to gather with loved ones and bask in the Queensland sunshine, with breezes flowing from our retracting roofs.


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. 


Melrose is open from 5pm Wednesday and Thursday, and from 12pm Friday through to Sunday. We invite you to reserve a table in either the Melrose Restaurant or Melrose Cocktail Bar. Our friendly and passionate team look forward to welcoming you into our Indonesian escape.
