Qld restaurateur bailed over cocaine ring

Evan Schwarten

Brisbane restaurant owner Daniel Milos says it will be "business as usual" at his Toowong eatery, despite drug trafficking charges against himself and his head chef.

Milos left Brisbane Magistrates Court on Saturday vowing to fight the charges against him, and to continue to operate his Italian restaurant Mariosarti as normal.

"I will be contesting these charges vigorously," he told reporters.

Milos, 40, was granted bail alongside his head chef Ryan David McIver on Saturday, a day after police raids raids netted up to $1 million worth of drugs and expensive cars.

He is facing 10 counts of supplying drugs, one count of trafficking, one count each of of money laundering and permitting use of place, and one count of drug possession.

McIver is facing one charge of trafficking and three counts of supplying drugs.

The two men will still be able to communicate for work purposes, after Milos' barrister Allistair McDougall argued that imposing a bail condition preventing contact would result in either Mariosarti's closure or McIver losing his job.

The pair are due to reappear on May 8.

Milos' brother was brutally murdered at a Morningside home in May 2014.

James Thomas Howell was charged with his murder but found not guilty by a jury in February.

There is no suggestion Milos was linked in any way to the crime.
