About écco Bistro

e’cco Bistro is an award-winning, hatted restaurant & Brisbane institution. First opening its doors in 1995, it was located in a historic warehouse on the fringe of Brisbane’s CBD. In March 2018, e’cco moved to their new home at Haven, Newstead.

New Zealand born owner and chef, Philip Johnson has become one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs.

In 1997 he won the Remy Martin Cognac/Australian Gourmet Traveller Restaurant of the Year award for his bistro e’cco, which first opened in 1995. He has received national acclaim for his sure yet simple approach, and his landmark bistro continues to delight all comers.

He has also donated his services to many worthwhile charities, working alongside a stellar line-up of industry peers to raise much-needed funds for many worthwhile causes, including the Starlight Children’s Foundation, AEIOU, Mission Australia and The Leukaemia Foundation.

Philip has also authored six of his own cookbooks. They all include a wonderful collection of recipes that are distinctively Philip Johnson – unpretentious food, simple yet stunning – and a reflection of the ideas and beliefs that have made e’cco the success it is today. His sixth book, Eating In, was released in August 2010 and what Philip considers to be the best one yet.
