Great food, fresh produce & world-leading chefs

Food and drink is something we take seriously in Brisbane – whether it’s a steak at a pub, a good coffee or a five-star degustation. Our pleasant outdoor climate and abundance of fresh produce mean we often eat al fresco-style, and our menus feature delicious locally sourced ingredients. From Moreton Bay prawns to greens from the Lockyer Valley, you’ll discover Queensland’s largest collection of Good Food Guide-awarded restaurants, cafes and bars in the region. From upscale dining precincts such as River Quay, Eagle Street Pier and Portside, to cool laneway bars, fresh food delis and alfresco cafes, there are hundreds of options to whet your appetite.
