Queensland's most exclusive restaurant revealed!

Well the votes are in for my very informal, completely unscientific and guaranteed anonymous survey to find which restaurant in Queensland is the hardest to get a seat. And the answer - Montrachet! My respondents were those 'in the know' in the dining scene - people who frequently book tables. They tell me Montrachet in Given Terrace, Paddington is the hardest restaurant in Brisbane to get a seat. Interestingly, in a recent interview with restaurant owner Thierry Galichet, he told me it's not that hard to get a booking, but if you want the window seat on a Friday night be prepared to wait six months. Other diners, it would seem, beg to differ on the difficulty of obtaining a suitable booking.

There are a few reasons why it's difficult to get into Montrachet. The restaurant is immensely popular and highly awarded but doesn't open on a Saturday night which limits diners' options. This is the only Brisbane restaurant I know of (apart from Salt at Rosalie) that doesn't open on Saturday. It's also not overly large so fills fairly quickly. So here's your chance to test out the theory - decide to dine at Montachet and see when you can get in! I can recommend the food!
Montrachet, 224 Given Terrace, Paddington. + 61 7 3367 0030
