Restaurant Dan Arnold is a place where nature meets creativity. Located in the Alex Perry Hotel & Apartments, Fortitude Valley, the dining room is intimate yet spacious, and reflects the attention to detail shown throughout the whole building.

Guests are invited on a culinary journey of Australian flavours and techniques, respecting the traditions Dan learnt while perfecting his craft in France. Dishes are prepared from an open kitchen, creating a connection between chef and diner.

Here, dishes are often created in the moment and the menu is ever changing. Influences range from the terroir, to the current season, with the ingredient dictating the technique to be used to prepare it.
