California Native is an atmospheric, casual Restaurant that combines more than 50 years of family culinary experience into a unique and personal dining experience. Drawing from family roots in the Golden State and nestled in Brisbane’s thriving inner suburb of Coorparoo, our food showcases fresh, quality ingredients along with the bright, robust flavours of Californian and Cali-Mex cuisine. We are a licensed venue with specialty cocktails including our infamous Margaritas and Sangrias. On Wednesdays and Thursdays we also allow BYO wine for a small corkage fee.

    As an actual California Born Native, this was the best Mexican meal I’ve had in Australia. Great fresh flavours, knowledgeable bar staff and friendly floor staff. Everything was excellent and I will be back.

    Great set up, we had prompt service, meals were big but light not greasy and fatty was a refreshing change and we all left happy and full. Definitely recommend and will be returning soon.
