Best places to eat in Brisbane


Food glorious food!

So you have planned your move with your Brisbane Interstate Removalists and you're soon going to be enjoying all that beautiful Brisbane has to offer. With this in mind, nightlife is one of the big attractions that you're going to enjoy but with options, decisions become more difficult, so in this article, we have put together a restaurant guide to help you find the best places to eat in Brisbane. This of course depends on your taste buds and the type of cuisine that you wish to partake in. One of the exciting things about Brisbane is the multiplicity of cuisine available to you, particularly if you enjoy new dining experiences. We have no agenda here in listing some of the restaurants but merely make a variety of suggestions.

Find the best place to eat in Brisbane based on your dining preferences:

Inner-city dining

People_sitting_around_tables_at_a_restaurantIf you’re heading into the city there are a profusion of great restaurants available to you. The bonus to dining in the inner city is that you are so close to many great nightspots and after having enjoyed a great meal you can dance the night away or maybe go to a show or movie. Additionally, there are some really top hotels and motels offering very reasonable accommodation if travelling home is undesirable. 

Dining with a view

Brisbane has some of the most beautiful scenery particularly along the peacefully meandering Brisbane river so why not enjoy that scenery while experiencing a unique dining experience.

  • A well-deserved recommendation for family dining is Big Roddy’s Rippin Rib Shack in South Brisbane. South Brisbane is so convenient to the city, just a short walk across the bridge, and is the location of Southbank where the Queensland Museum, QPAC (Queensland Performing Arts Centre) and many fine restaurants can be found. Southbank is an adventure of discovery on its own as it was the site of the world expo in 1988 and has been superbly redeveloped.
  • For a good list of family-friendly restaurants, has a list to ensure you have a sumptuous evening along with a family-friendly atmosphere. The Editors' pick is The Victoria Park Bistro

Pub Meals


Brisbane has many great pubs that serve some really good food at quite reasonable prices so top pub meals can be found at The Urban List of 50 of Brisbane's best pub meals or just go down to your local. A good example of a great local Brisbane pub is Sixes and Sevens, which is a uniquely Queensland styled Public House. 

The best brunch spots in Brisbane

It’s great to get out early on the weekend and enjoy brunch at some of Brisbane’s suburban locations. 

Bayside Dining

Moreton Bay and the suburbs fronting it provide the perfect locations to enjoy a mid-morning breakfast while watching the joggers and others passing by or if you’re really lucky a passing pod of whales in season. 

Cafes and lunch spots in Brisbane


What a nice idea, going out on a Sunday for lunch together. There is a myriad of options in Brisbane and Tripadvisor lists some great spots, along with reviews of each, allowing you to make an informed decision.

It’s only an hour drive from Brisbane to this beautiful part of Queensland and combined with some of the most stunning beaches in Australia, dining on the Gold Coast is an experience not to be missed. The beginning of the journey can be found at the, you can't miss list of restaurants on

Julius Pizzeria in South Brisbane for instance rates well with a number of chefs as does Same Same and Montrachet. You’d be hard-pressed to get a better recommendation than that of other chefs for the best fare in town. If you want to look into this further, find more locations where chefs eat on
