E'cco Bistro is a snappy, lively bistro that serves some very good food to an adoring crowd of locals. It is an enduring part of the Brisbane food scene, yet its longevity tends to show up in food that has not kept up with other, newer, venues in the city.
At a recent meal most dishes were fine, however one was marred by a sticky reduced and very sweet sauce that detracted from the pork belly pieces that were served on it. An entree of cured ocean trout lacked flavour, but a dish of seared scallops with cauliflower served three ways was a fine example of clever cooking.
The wine list has some hidden gems such as four wines from the Valette domain in the Macon. We ordered the Je suis Vire which had a beautiful lick of oxidation that made it a perfect match for every dish we were served through the meal.
