Head Chef

Lochlan Alexander

Chef Lochlan Alexander Joined The Regatta Hotel in 2018 as a Commis Chef in The Boatshed Restaurant after moving up from Newcastle in NSW. With 13+ years of experience, he used his passion for great food and Australian produce to move up the ranks to become the Head Chef at the age of 27.

Working with some of the world’s best food suppliers, he found a real passion for locally sourced Australian produce. Now Lochlan works extremely closely with supplier to select the best produce for not only the Boatshed Restaurant but our whole venue. Which has won the QHA’s Best Restaurant in 2017, 2018 and 2019 being placed into the hall of fame.

Lochlan continues to search for new and innovative ways to showcase Australian produce through some of his sell out events such as Whiskey Beef and Beef Off.

Eat & Drink

With its famous location on the banks of the beautiful Brisbane River, the Regatta Hotel is the perfect setting for superlative dining experiences.

One of the few Brisbane restaurants with function rooms, we’re proud to be home to our experienced Head Chef, Lochlan Alexander . Lochlan has carefully designed our menus, which provide an innovative, broad range of dishes with an emphasis on using only fresh, seasonal produce sourced from leading suppliers.

A centrepiece of the restaurant is its stunning, two-metre long flame grill, which adds a sense of theatre as guests observe the cooking of the restaurant’s signature dry-aged steaks. With a commitment to fresh, local and seasonal produce, the selection of quality steaks is complemented by a variety of mainstays, with something to suit everyone’s tastes.

At Regatta Hotel we proudly boast a wide selection of 33 draught beers, 3 ciders on tap and 1 spirit, through the largest service point throughout the hotel, our Main Bar. We favour the international finds, including American craft beers like Brooklyn Lager, to premium drops such as Heineken, Peroni and Kirin.
