Brisbane Restaurant Guide


As Australia’s only sub-tropical city, Queensland’s 300 days of sun a year make Brisbane perfect for waterside dining. Whilst Brisbane has been known for its laid back atmosphere and brilliant seafood restaurants, its dining scene is diversifying in international cuisines from modern Australian to Italian and Spanish; from fine dining style to relaxed eateries and steakhouses. Award-winning restaurants are always popular for their private dining rooms with the expanding corporate crowd to host industry soirees, functions and product launches. A buzzing hub of Chinese culture and cuisine has evolved in Sunnybank, fondly known as Chinatown. Fortitude Valley is a late night playground for the palate where new restaurants and wine bars thrive on the energy of the glowing city strip. Brisbane River weaves between Bulimba, St Lucia and New Farm where family restaurants and cafés brim with community soul.
