Imagine yourself in 19th Century Latin America, sitting around the fogata (Spanish for wood fire) as travelling gypsies regale you with tales, folk music, cuisine and drinks.

Fogata honours the memory of the gypsies who travelled Latin America exchanging food, drink and music for shelter and safe passage.

Serving up Latin-style food with a contemporary twist, Brisbane’s modern bohemian socialite will free right at home in this vibrant establishment. Dine outdoors or inside and finish your evening with a cheeky Latin American cocktail or two from the gorgeous back bar. There’s caprioskas, mojitos, piña coladas and a wide range of new world wines and thirst quenching beers.

On the menu, there’s a diverse range of dishes to tempt your taste buds. From Brazillian style charcoal grilled steaks to Caribbean style seafood, this is Latin American cuisine with a modern twist. The tasty tapas dishes are ideal shared with friends or family. Tune into the great vibes, the toe tapping tunes and carnival atmosphere.

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!

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

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.

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!

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!

It's the best South American food we ever had. The service was excellent the owner was food tentative. The price was very reasonable the serving is very very large. Only used quality products. The entertainment was great. Definitely will come back.

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.

Good service, food and ambience. Tip for diners—the empanadas were bigger than expected :)
Would go back, as there’s other things I would like to try on this delicious menu & the entertainment that was about to start as we were leaving looked fun.
