About us

Pause Restaurant is a destination for lovers of fine food and paddock to plate dining. Beautifully crafted meals in an architecturally impressive structure, it’s more than enough excuse for a drive away from the big smoke to Brisbane’s rural fringe. Just 25 mins from the CBD in the main street of beautiful Samford Village, you’ll find our restaurant. Allow our Italian Chefs to impress you with their creative seasonal plates, much of whose ingredient is sourced locally. Enjoy our modern Mediterranean cuisine that showcases fresh seafood and amazing steaks or get truly comfortable and explore our 5-6 dish degustation menu. Our Italian Sommelier curates an impressive cellar, and paired wines are offered with all our degustation experiences. Our hope is that a visit to Pause is a moment in time that remains special, distinctly memorable. Unashamedly more indulgent than your day to day world...a Pause.

Pause never fails to impress

We have eaten at Pause on many occasions. Sometimes it’s just my wife and I, other times it is with friends or charity events. The food, service, matched wines and atmosphere never fail to impress ourselves and all that have joint us. We have have ordered meals from the menu as well as the β€œLeave it to the Chef” degustation in the restaurant and during Covid lockdown, take home degustation. Always wonderful and delicious. We can not recommend Pause high enough as the go to place to eat in Samford and surrounds. Keep up the great work Chef Rino and SommelierLuca. See you again shortly. ????

Making memories the Pause way!

Pause is my family's special restaurant where we go to share great food and make memories. Brilliant food by Chef Rino and his team in the kitchen and the best service anywhere by Luca and the wait staff. No where else I'd rather eat in the South East Queensland region!

Awesome dining experience

A scrumptious lunch last Sunday for a 60th birthday with family. All professionally handled with very friendly waiting staff. This restaurant is truly worth the ride out to beautiful Samford. Our heartfelt thanks to the Chef and especially Luca, the Restaurant Manager, for all your assistance. We will return.

Top class dining experience

Hidden gem!!! From the booking system to dining experience is very professional and a place that is well worth a visit. Luca ' The Sommelier ' and his team work in sync well trained and packed with knowledge. I felt as if I where in a 5 star luxury hotel, with the fire lite felt cossy, top imported wine list, a 7 course degustation menu that I was just in a Wow factor Thanks to Chef Owner. I didnt expect such packed full of flavour dishes with modern flair and elegant plating. The atmosphere around me, guests where just tasting an sharing their meals an trying to guess what it is because they where amazed an delighted. Im located in Gold Coast, Queensland an drove 45 minutes to dine at Pause restaurant and I must say the experience is well worth it when the focus is on the customers experience and staff really go out their way to make you feel welcomed an they nurture you. A truly hidden gem! Thank you to the Owner, Luca and Team

Thanks to Rino and Luca and all the team at this great restaurant. Our family of 16 were so well looked after. We were so impressed with the very personal attention we received. Even the youngest grandchildren were catered for and were made to feel most welcome. The food was fantastic and we spent a very relaxed and enjoyable few hours at this pleasant venue. Thanks again for such a wonderful occasion. Thanks again.

An outstanding restaurant steak house in Samford

We drove out of the city for a quiet lunch and booked on line for Pause at Samford. Had to choose between steak mains and degustation. Very happy for our choice of a nicely cooked sauce with red wine jus and an excellent semifreddy dessert. Wine choice was great. On a hot day the breeze through the fruit and olive trees in the courtyard was welcome. The service was friendly and attentive.

Amazing as always

Best place we have visited for feeling COVID safe and cared for as a valued customer. They are so busy we’ve been unable to get a table since our last visit when they first opened after lock down! Good for them I say. Our go to local restaurant for a relaxing, grown up evening meal. The set menus are great and King Fish ceviche is just amazing. Can not recommend highly enough. Great food, amazing service and consistently high quality in every aspect. Wine list is good too.
