Ladybird is one of those places when you know, you know, you know? A gem hidden in plain sight, the luxe waterfront venue opened late 2020 and has been wining and dining locals and visitors every day since. Nestled at the back of Palazzo Versace, Ladybird is best accessed via Marina Mirage and boasts a spectacular view from its expansive wrap-around deck. While away an afternoon with a champagne in hand ogling superyachts, or pull up a seat inside and embark on a global journey of food and flavours from Asia, the Mediterranean and Australia. Seafood lovers will be in their happy place with oysters available in hot and cold options alongside seared-tuna sashimi, wok-fried calamari and Moreton Bay bug-loaded bao buns. The ‘Pots and Woks’ section of the menu is proving popular with diners with unexpected combinations such as the Bolognese Ladybird, where instead of spaghetti, it’s served on fat egg noods loaded with pulled-beef sauce that’s been cooked overnight. There’s a private dining room for those extra special gatherings and if you’re in the mood for a tipple, you’re in luck – Ladybird boasts a seriously impressive selection of swill ranging from cocktails through to spirits, wine, beer, cider and sparkling.
