Cuisine: Fusion, Latin, Tapas/Small Plates

Glamorous, unique and brimming with personality, Fogata serves Latin fusion dishes that sparkle with sass and attitude.

It's a melting pot of Brisbane's trendiest locals and has a lively, informal atmosphere all thanks to their casual dining and catchy live music that you'll be humming on the way home. Sit inside and soak in the tunes or plonk yourself outside on the stone wall for an after-dinner drink. Cushions are provided so you don't get a sore behind!

Get into the sharing spirit to kick off your evening. Dip into some confit duck tacos, shrimp bobo, a trio of skewers or loaded patacon which comes with pulled pork or flavoursome veggies. Then lose yourself to the best of Latin America with their Inca Trail plate, complete with kingfish ceviche and Pacha Mama salad. Sink your teeth into some pork cutlets or go super traditional with seafood paella.

See off your obligatory churros with a tap beer. Wild Yak and Frothy Beer are amongst the options and if you feel uncomfortably full (it's expected), try a light beer or go for a bottle of wine (or two) to share with the gang.

Great evening at Fogata. Food was super tasty, Sangria was perfectly fruity and boozy and the service was always with a massive smile.

This is the second time we've eaten at Fogata & both times it's been an exceptional dining experience! It's hard to find a restaurant that offers great fusions of flavours an interesting entrees as well as succulent meats & well sized mains. Everything we've tried on the menu has been delicious & we would have tried at least 3/4's of the menu so far :) add to it the yummy cocktails & a brilliantly knowledgeable barman boasting a huge range of tequilas & mescals & you have a perfect meal + many happy customers!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to any fussy restaurant goer and we're definitely recommending it to all our friends. It's a fun & tasty experience that will leave you feeling very satisfied. Enjoy!

The food is amazing. we ordered a few tapas, the squid, kingfish and prawns. The squid was the best I've eaten. My mum and I shared the seafood paella as a main. I loved the food and the service was amazing. Highly recommend. thank you for such a great dinner

This place is fantastic! The food is beautifully prepared and cooked to perfection. Every bite is full of flavour and each plate is carefully crafted for a lovely presentation. The native South American staff are as beautiful as the food. Do yourself a flavour and enjoy!

The welcome was friendly. The food was fresh and tasty. The choice was varied and would cater for most but still excite the palate. The wine list was limited but offered wines not generally seen. We went Wednesday but Friday,Saturday and Sunday they have live music. Bookings on those days are recommended. We will be going back. Highly recommend giving it a try.

Great service, nicely set up restaurant with a vibrant atmosphere. food was great, only order tapas, 4 pines beer was divine. Tacos were a slight let down unfortunately otherwise brilliant

Delightfully unique cuisine with outstanding service to match. With a restaurant this good you can save the airfare and still experience authentic Latin American food. Highly recommend!

I'm taking my friend on a trip around the culinary world and stopped here for the evening. I think we will be making it a frequent dining stopover!
Amazing and beautiful!
The service matched perfectly.
Thank you Forgata team. In no particular order, your chef, your waiters and waitresses deserve a pat on the back!

The location and atmosphere for Fogata on a Friday night was great. I phoned ahead to the restaurant and asked about parking which was good to know free parking around the corner.

The food was really good except for the baramundi dish. It was dry and fish overcooked, the coconut rice that accompanied it was quite small and very dry.

The service really let Fogata down as they had allocated a young inexperienced waitress to our table (the girl told us this info.) I did talk directly to the manager after our dinner and let him know our concerns around a lot of issues on service. The manager was receptive to my comments and suggestions which was good to see and he handled our feedback in a very professional and polite manner. For this reason I will not go into detail regarding the service and probably would have rated the service a 1 had this manager given good customer service at the end.

Would I recommend this place and dine here again? Yes and Yes!

We had an early booking with friends at 6pm and notified the staff that we needed to be out by 7.15pm for a movie. The staff were friendly and obliging, food was excellent and we enjoyed a lovely glass of rose'.....or two!

Second time dining here and loved everything. Empanadas were all delicious (highly recommend the mushroom), rump cap with root vegetables was a winner and the acidity in the salad really balanced everything out. Will definitely be back.

Our waiter was excellent and patient too. Food was okay but I’m pretty hard to please. Lovely atmosphere and dessert was probably
My highlight.

My Partner and I dined at this little gem the other night. I was unsure about the restaurant at first glance due to the lack of clientele. However once we had ordered, the food arrived when we expected and was absolutely delicious.

Somehow the waiter had forgotten about one of our main sides that we ordered but we weren't too concerned due to the sheer size of the meal we had ordered. However when queried about the mistake the waiter corrected the order and brought out the missing item even though we told him not to worry about it, at no charge too!

We had a great time here and whilst the restaurant might pick up later in the night, I was genuinely surprised by how quiet it was whilst we were there. This place is great!
