Steakhouse
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 full bar, banquet seating and a open-aired deck to enjoy a pre or post dinner cocktail!

A fantastic meal again at Les Bubbles. The steak was sensational and the frits were crunchy. Sauces were spot on. The only problem I had was that I didn't have enough room for desert.
I'll be back again!

Bone marrow was spectacular and baked cambert was delicious.

Steak was cooked inconsistent between each of us.

Creme brulee was a little overcooked for one and a little watery for another of our party.

We booked a 4 course meal but we were not provided 4 courses, however, they did agree to include a speciality cocktail for each of us.

Great service, decent wine selection and the food was awesome. Marrow for entree was excellent and the steak was super tender.
Better selection of tap beer would be great, maybe some local brewery selections.
Had a great time.

Good service. Lunch and their business was slow. The special was good value. Marrow extremely yummy! Good steak. Espresso martini a bit sweet. Next time I’ll ask for less sugar syrup

Staff were outstanding. They were accomodating to wifey being pregnant and made her some amazing mock tails. While cleaning up they noticed our son was still eating chips and left his plate till last.

Our guests were fist timers to Les Bubbles and have asked for us to organise another get together here soon.

It the kind attention to little details that ensures we will return as regulars.

The service of staff was outstanding, friendly but not overbearing. The food was very good, The appetizers and desserts were phenomenal. However the steak was a bit of a dissapointment. Both parties pieces had a large seam of sinew down the middle, detracting from the overall dish, one was also slighlty undercooked. Its a pity because in the past this restaurant definetly had the best steaks in town. Hopefully this was a once off dissapointment on what would have been a fairly busy night. However the other two dishes more than made up for it

We had been wanting to try here for a while and with COVID end Easter and bad weather managed to get a table at 7:15. The welcome was friendly, we were shown to our seat and service overall good with orders taken in good time, and recommendations made appropriately for my pregnant wife and to take into account my walnut allergy. We ordered sparkling water and at one point the waitress tipped still water into my glass and made no attempt to replace the glass when she realised and apologised.
The food was great value and more enjoyable than Walter’s Steakhouse where we had dined the weekend prior.
Overall an enjoyable night!

Delicious food and attentive service. We enjoyed the baked Graindorge Camembert with bread and onion confit and the steak frites. As they say, they have one main dish and they do it well. My partner and I agree. This is our second visit and we will be back

Dinner was really great - the food was timely and cooked well. The staff were friendly. The menu was reasonably priced. The only issue was the seating arrangement. Pretty sure it wasn't COVID safe.

We were seated about 4 steps left from the entrance, next to the front counter where people would congregate as they arrived or departed. There were also tables squeezed in front and behind us. My friend was frustrated because the guy sitting behind her kept knocking her chair. The guy behind me to my right was less than 2 feet away from me.

Like I said, the food and staff were great. I recommend requesting a table for 3 or more (even if you only have 2 people) to avoid being allocated that tight space to the left as you enter Les Bubbles.

Steak was excellent. Would have preferred more frequent servings of “bottomless frites”. Would appreciate clearer info about parking validation - parked at Chinatown secure park mentioned in website but then find that it was not the one Les bubbles validates. Overall a superb restaurant. Will return.

Usually terrific food at Les Bubbles and on this occasion it was the same! The service staff appeared a little undertrained, as one of the steaks was cooked incorrectly and we had to repeatedly ask for extra items for our table. This is not the usual experience!

Food was good except for the fact that our “bottomless” frites were taken from us after we had only just requested them 5 minutes prior. Not sure if they’re were going to give these to another table but even if we weren’t in a covid nightmare this would still be unacceptable. The service was horrible and we were still asked to tip at the end, not a chance.

Took us a little while to click what the significance of the photos cladding most walls was about , but when it did it just added another level of " significance ". This combined with the food and staff made it a very special night.

Staff were friendly and attentive, food was delicious. Only downside was we were sat at a table directly in the entrance where patrons were required to line up to pay. So we were jostled and surrounded most of the night, which was a shame.
