This leafy CBD sanctuary, with its covered courtyard tables and chandelier centrepiece, embodies Spanishenergía, its ambience a clear nod to the chef-patron's Barcelona upbringing. The flavour-driven dishes are less clearly inflected, drawing as much inspiration from Mediterranean and Queensland bounty as Catalonia. Padrón peppers fire up alongside spicy Manolete chorizo, and Queensland mackerel comes sharply dressed in a cracking ceviche. Duck breast arrives with a tart orange gastrique enlivening a nutty wild-rice salad spiked with fig and shaved fennel, while silver grunter is neatly presented at the table, the precisely cooked fillet paired with roast potatoes and garlic. Brillat-Savarin cheesecake is both impossibly rich and light in texture, with mint, poached quince and fig. Opt for the Javier's Table dégustation and all decisions are made for you - just relax, enjoy the smart service and linger over a balanced wine list with a notable cava selection.
