Moda Restaurant is ‘On the Move’… Relocating to The Barracks

Javier and François are delighted to announce the relocation of Moda Restaurant from Edward Street to The Barracks, on Petrie Terrace.  Home of ‘The Underground’ Night Club in the 80’s and 90’s and the former Police Barracks Stables, Moda Tapas Brasa Bar’s new location will open early October 2018.

Since 1999, as Gianni’s Restaurant and from 2010 as Moda Restaurant, Head Chef and Co-Owner Javier Codina is looking forward to this new and exciting culinary venture.

Moda has always been an owner-operators’ concept with an ‘everything made in-house’ philosophy.

Since joining forces in 2010, Javier and François have been committed to pursuing their restaurant career together and have elected The Barracks for their future.

Moda Tapas Brasa Bar will feature an extensive Tapas and Entremeses menu, priced from $8 to $28, ideal for grazing, lunches, dinners and celebrations.

The addition of a Rôtisserie and a famous MIBRASA charcoal oven will enhance the delicately-cooked over-embers carnivore menu.

The popular Javier’s Table, a rustic degustation where the chefs cooks for you, will continue, and for those diners who prefer the classic entrée, main, dessert approach, an expanded and alluring menu will entice.

Moda Tapas Brasa Bar will remain a popular destination for functions with various dedicated dining and cocktail party spaces accommodating from 12 to 200 guests. The Wine Room, equipped with the latest technology, is complimented by an Alfresco Terrace for celebrations of up to 60 guests.

Fronting onto Petrie Terrace, the new Moda is very easy to locate, and has access to 400 undercover car park spaces.

We look forward to seeing you on Petrie Terrace, and sharing the next decade with you.

Warmest regards,

Javier and François

NB: All vouchers and confirmed event agreements will be honoured.
