Our Italian Chefs offer an amazing cuisine crafted from scratch using fresh, local ingredients. The Menu is creative, generous & seasonal, inspired by traditional European flavours yet contemporary and inventive.
Our Cocktail Bar crafts delicious experiences from Botanicals, and our comprehensive Wine List is complemented by craft beers on tap.
We'd love for you to come and enjoy our generosity, and leave feeling nurtured... A Pause.
One of the best in Brisbane for a Dining experience ! Definitely worth the 45 minute drive. Highly recommended for curious palettes .
Excellent meal! There were 7 of us celebrating an 18th birthday!
We chose the chefs choice and it was perfect!
Great food and plenty of it!
Would highly recommend Pause at Samford!
Delicious food and fantastically knowledgeable wine waiter (great to get the insight into the region). Always a great night st Pause.
We celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary in style. Pause reminded me of my youth. We used to dress up and take our girl friends to beautiful restaurants like Pause. The menu is a wonderful range of flavours cooked and blended to perfection. My wife loves cocktails and her pallet was very impressed. Nothing is to much trouble and Luca makes your experience at Pause second to none.
Everything was so fantastic! 2thumbs up!
A very pleasant experience. My teenagers and I went to Pause for dinner and were so impressed at the service, food and atmosphere. You must visit to understand the experience. The food absolutely amazing!
Great food, exceptional service, knowledgeable staff and a first class sommelier. One of our favourite places to enjoy a special meal.
Incredible food, wonderful friendly service and ambience. We had the degustation menu and the chef is an absolute genius. Will definitely be back!
We had a delicious degustation menu which included 9 dishes over 5 courses for a very reasonable price. It was our first time at Pause so having the degustation option gave us a taste of a lot of things that were on the menu. Everything was delicious and beautifully presented. I would have to say the desert was my least favourite part of the whole experience. It was nice, but not as amazing as the rest of the dishes. The steak was amazing, and we also loved the salmon and pasta dish. I would highly recommend this place as they really aim to please, and nothing seemed to much of a problem for them.
I love this small and inimate resturant. The quality of food is outstanding and so is the service. The wine list and recommendation by staff was fantastic and complimented our food choices. I would recommend Pause and will definitely be returning,
An awesome meal with great service. I would highly recommend Pause.
Plate servings minimal - couldn't supply my order on the menu so it was suggested I try a recommendation which was undercooked, overpriced and the "served vegetables" were half a parsnip and 2 slices of zucchini.
Unfortunately trying to be a 5-star restaurant was only of 2-star cafe. Waited for a long time to get meals, maybe 4 tables were booked and we waited 45 minutes to have our food received.
leave it to the chef.........so delicious and beautiful!
These people know what they are doing ! I would compare with some of Brisbane's best restaurants.
Had the 4 course degustation showcasing Millen Farms produce for an exceptional price of $39 a head. Could not fault a thing. Food was delicious & loved every course. Fantastic value, friendly & attentive service & would not hesitate to go back
The food and the staff were outstanding. Staff were very professional and friendly. The food was sensational and the chefs made good use of the local produce. Highly recommended!
Such a lovely place to go to for lunch or dinner! Delicious food and a feast for the eyes as well!
Exquisite food and stunning service. I can’t fault the experience. It was a coolish night but the heating was subtle yet perfect
Wonderful restaurant where we enjoy the food, never disappoints
Pause always thrives with fresh seasonal menu offerings executed to the highest caliber. The service is professional and comforting. I would recommend Pause to anyone looking for a culinary experience, also wanting to impress friends or family visiting Brisbane.
We’ve been to Pause a number of times and have always been very happy with our experience. This time I was blown away by their new menu, extended wine list and continued friendly but not instrusive service. Thanks for making our birthday celebration even more special.
Had the degustation dinner 9 courses. Beautiful food, great matching wines, great atmosphere and fabulous service.
Pause is one of the best places to eat on the Brisbane north side. Amazing atmosphere, staff and good presentation.
With three friends, I ordered the Millen Farm 1st Friday Feast. We loved everything about this restaurant. The steak was sublime & my vegetarian friend was extremely happy with her food. My shellfish allergy was recognised & catered for.
This restaurant is a real find. My congratulations to the kitchen & wait staff.
Very enjoyable evening. Great service. Perhaps more vegetarian options would balance the main means section as this extends the choice for vegetarians and those looking after their health while enjoying delicious food.
The food was very poor 1 meal had to be sent back ,they refunded our money
such a beautiful night to celebrate my birthday. With the 'leave it to the chef' menu, everything so delicious!
Best fine dining in Brisbane. Did the degustation with wine pairings and the experience was fantastic. Would highly recommend
The best eye fillet, cooked perfectly. Great service .
Me and my family has the most amazing night!! The food was amazing the wind was awesome. You staff are absolutely amazing there is nothing I can fault we will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service. Wonderful sparkling from Italy. An all round exceptional experience yet again
Once again Pause did not disappoint. The food was fabulous. Chef was very accommodating to my dietary requirements and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this wee gem of a restaurant!
Amazing food and service they were great at helping with meal selection and the fish and steak were absolutely superb
What an enjoyable afternoon
Possibly the best restaurant we've dined at for may years
Food was great, fresh, interesting, local. Nothing too sauced, all crisp, tasty.
Hi the service was amazing, we let the chef choice our 5 courses with wine to match each course.
I was a great experience. Not good I would normally eat. But glad we did.
Great service and food. Defiantly a cut above most.
Fabulous service food was very very nice, the atmosphere was perfect, we enjoyed the live music. We'll b back again.
We decided to go with the Chef's choice and were impressed with the quality, variety and freshness of all the courses. There was sufficient time between courses for conversation and to appreciate the local produce that was next on the menu. We loved that the chef used local Millen farm produce and explained each of the courses. We would definitely recommend the upstairs deck dining experience.
