Now, the team behind this Brisbane favourite is opening up a sister venue in St. Lucia, set on the lush University Of Queensland campus. Introducing Patina at Alumni Court.
Opening on February 21, this 90-seat restaurant will provide a unique dining experience, both indoor and outdoor.

To satisfy your sweet tooth, Patina at Alumni Court is serving up decadent desserts such as house-made espresso martini souffle. Or why not book in for a high tea and get your fix 0f bite-sized delights?
In the drinks department, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a selection of known and loved Rieslings, Rosés, and Champagnes, alongside a range of elegant cocktails mixed up from craft spirits.
