About me

Andrew Marno

has worked in the hospitality industry for 35 years. His career began in Noosa Heads working in establishments such as Anita’s, The Lobster Trap and the 5 Star Sheraton Noosa. While living and working overseas he broadened his knowledge of and experience with international foods and ingredients.

Soon after returning to Australia Andrew opened his first restaurant, ‘AndaVanth’ in Milton, Qld with executive chef and business partner David Farmer, of Mount Lofty House (Adelaide Hills). AndaVanth was credited with many accolades over the years including a perfect score from the Courier Mail’s restaurant review in its opening year. It became a very popular Wedding Venue, in particular for Cocktail style receptions.

After 5 years he ventured to the West End district to open a more challenging establishment, ‘BIN 220’ Wine and Tapas bar. An extensive and international wine list, carefully selected by an award winning sommelier, complimented a refined, sophisticated menu. The modern offering in West End quickly became a popular venue for locals and others appreciating fine food and wine in a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Following this business Andrew opened the award winning ‘Seagrass Fish and Chippery’. Also on Brisbane’s
West End/South Brisbane border.

In 2008 Andrew was approached to cater for a ‘stand up’ cocktail-style function on a luxury vessel on the Brisbane River. This experience inspired him to meet a growing market for events designed for guests and hosts alike to mingle while still enjoying their food and beverages. ‘Standing Room Only Catering’ was born.

Now in its tenth year, Andrew works with Michelin star chefs and a highly experienced service team, and is constantly researching local and international trends in order to offer contemporary menus. He and his team pride themselves on the delivery of outstanding customer service from the initial enquiry, working to ensure a seamless and delicious event for every client. Contact Now
