Pause is a place to relax, to remember what it means to go a little slower.

We have built a beautiful space for you to simply come and enjoy, with friends or by yourself, a sanctuary.

Pause Restaurant currently offers a crafted Menu of Mediterranean magic for a dinner or lunch experience to remember.

Brisbane’s most amazing Crystal and Jewellery gallery shares our site: Feel Crystals offers you the chance to browse Gemstones, hand-crafted Jewellery and amazing Crystals we source from around the world.

Very soon, we will offer an Hydrotherapy Day Spa in the European tradition from mineral water sourced on site from our 100m well. Clay, Steam, Jacuzzi, Sauna, Massage. A promise of deep indulgence.

Our wish is you enjoy time spent here.


Discover Menu





Our Menu at it’s heart reflects European authenticity.  There’s no complicated flavours, typically you find just  a few fine ingredients in each plate. If you have spent time in Italy or France, the simplicity of the cuisine and it’s emphasis on unadorned quality will be familiar.

We offer you the chance to enjoy premium ingredients, prepared by deeply experienced Italian Chefs who care for each plate served.

We suggest you could start to explore our offerings with a few small plates, and a few well crafted cocktails or fine wines by the glass…or in time, trust us to indulge you with a degustation menu of “Leave it to Chef” that avoids decision, something you will never regret.

Close your eyes and order anything. It’s all delicious.

From a simple hand rolled crispy Arincino dipped in squid ink, to a 2 kilo Tomahawk steak with all the trimmings, we believe it’s all very good.

Every last taste until the plate is empty…our greatest compliment.
