Basement 2/109 Edward St, Brisbane City QLD 4000, Australia 

Hidden underneath the Metro Arts Theatre, Exhibition is a special place to have dinner. With unique dishes served on fancy plates and only 24 seats available, it's a night you'll remember for a long time. Chef Tim Scott, who used to work at Joy, creates the menu based on what's fresh and local, taking inspiration from Japanese omakase. But no matter what's on the menu, you can always expect something amazing!


“10/10 cannot fault the experience at all. The entire night was the most refined and well executed collection of sensory delights I have ever experienced in Brisbane” -Luke Beacon on Google review


Shop 1, River Quay, Sidon St, QLD 4101, Australia 

Their Osteria is a laid-back place, perfect for a quick snack by the river—or a fancy Italian drink outdoors if you want to feel cultured. Now, their Ristorante is something special, ideal for a glamorous date night. Chef Will Cowper brings Italian fine dining to a whole new level with simple but classic dishes that will make you crave them for days. Picture champagne lobster spaghetti, tasty marinated Italian olives, and a delightful affogato to finish things off.

"A wonderful place to enjoy a delicious dinner with beautiful views of the Brisbane River. Excellent service. -Steve Chan on Google review


Shop T03 Emporium Hotel, 267 Grey St, South Brisbane QLD 4101, Australia

Takashiya is the place to go if you're curious about Japanese food or you really enjoy fish. Chef Takashi and Chef Kazu lead small groups of 12 people through a bunch of yummy dishes, like sushi and hot plates, made with fresh fish from different places. If you can't get a reservation for the special meal they offer, you can still try their regular menu and taste different types of sake at the front bar.

“Great experience, culinary masterpieces, and Chef's company. I and my husband had an outstanding night celebrating his birthday.” -PAULI KUSUMA on Google review

Yoko Dining

2/5 Boundary St, Brisbane City QLD 4000, Australia

A group of gifted chefs at Yoko Dining put forth endless effort to craft dishes that will tantalise your palate. The kitchen is a centre of inventiveness and invention, combining classic Japanese flavours with cutting-edge cooking methods to produce dishes that are as beautiful to look at as they are delicious. But remember to leave space for dessert before you gorge on soba noodle salad, chicken karaage, and kimchi okonomiyaki. The white sesame mochi ice cream made by Yoko is incredible.

“Fantastic dining experience. We came here late on a Thursday night and were met with terrific service and food. The atmosphere was lively and views of the river spectacular.” -Zoe Poulos on Google review

C'est Bon

609/611 Stanley St, Woolloongabba QLD 4102, Australia

C'est Bon is like a little piece of France right here in Brisbane. It's not just a cafe or a bar—it's also got a rooftop! But the best part is the cozy restaurant where Chef Andy Ashby shows off his cooking skills. If you want the whole experience, go for the seven-course Chef's Tasting Menu. It's like trying the best dishes from every season! And don't miss out on their famous sweetcorn brulee—it's a must-try dish that lots of people love.

"We had 5 course tasting menu with drinks. Really high quality food and fantastic service. Especially the Finnish waiter was on top of everything all the time. Highly recommend! -Niko Riutto on Google review


Level 1/48 James St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

Hellenika offers a dining experience that will take you straight to the Mediterranean, regardless of how long you've been a fan of Greek food or how unfamiliar you are with its flavours. Hotel has us entranced, not to mention the spades of spanakopita, slow-cooked lamb and zucchini chips you won’t want to share. Take some time browsing the cocktail menu utilising fresh flavours and Greek spirits, and see out your meal with dripping golden honey puffs.

“What an amazing experience. From the first minute you walk in, service is top-notch. All waiters wearing pink classy jackets and their customer service skills were second to none.” -Ashleigh Swartz on Google review


211 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia 

Dinner at Baja is a celebration of real Mexican flavours and cooking customs. Every item, from spicy ceviche and substantial burritos to flavorful tacos, is carefully prepared. Head chef Julius Villamor is all about pushing the envelope and experimenting; we personally can't get enough of their fried chicken tacos and stracciatella topped with honey and jalapeños.

“We could not have asked for a better dining experience than the Chef's Table at Baja. The food was incredible and the service was impeccable. Being able to chat with the chef and his team about the menu,” -Jayenne Conroy on Google review


Howard Smith Wharf Precinct, 3/5 Boundary St, Brisbane City QLD 4000, Australia

They serve up modern Greek dishes that celebrate the delicious flavours of the Mediterranean. And trust me, their saganaki is out of this world!

Stanley Restaurant

5 Boundary St, Brisbane City QLD 4000, Australia

If you love Asian food, you'll want to check out Stanley, a fantastic Cantonese restaurant at Howard Smith Wharves. Situated at the top end of the area, it offers amazing views of the Brisbane River and serves up delicious Cantonese dishes. You've got to try the Byron Bay Berkshire pork belly, but don't miss out on the tasty Mongolian lamb ribs either!

"Everything was amazing! The food, the service and atmosphere was great. The staff were very helpful and made the night even better! -Ibby Gee on Google review

63 Melbourne St, South Brisbane QLD 4101, Australia 

Southside is an awesome two-story restaurant that serves pan-Asian food. It's made by the same people who made Rick Shores. When you step inside, it feels like you're in a mix of a jungle temple and a cool warehouse, which goes perfectly with the vibes of the nearby streets. While most of the food is inspired by China, they also have flavours from other East Asian countries. You have to try their famous potato and truffle spring rolls and yummy duck noodles. They also have fancier dishes like whole quail with red vinegar caramel and steamed coral trout with cured pork and shiitake broth. Make sure to bring your friends because there's so much delicious food to share!

“The food and service was absolutely phenomenal. It was our first visit and we will definitely be returning, I think we just found our new favourite restaurant!” -Rachel McNeil on Google review

Donna Chang

Shop 3/171 George St, Brisbane City QLD 4000, Australia

Get ready to use your chopsticks at Donna Chang, located on George Street! This restaurant used to be an old bank, but now it's completely different. Inside, you'll see a huge pink dining room with fancy chandeliers, marble tables, and cozy pink booths for big groups—or if you just want to relax and eat a lot! They first caught our eye with their Seinfeld-themed fortune cookies, but we stayed for the delicious fresh rock lobsters, crispy roasted duck, and yummy passionfruit custard buns.



“Fabulous food, beverages and service! Our Donna Chang experience did not disappoint and would highly recommend dining here if you love Asian flavours and fine dining.” -Anna Thomas on Google review

SK Steak & Oyster

The Calile Hotel, G.12/48 James St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

At SK Steak & Oyster on James Street, you'll find amazing steaks, fresh raw fish, and a cozy vibe. When you step inside, it feels like you're in a fancy New York steakhouse. Start your meal with a martini and a seafood platter with icy oysters. Then, enjoy lobster risotto or a delicious steak, maybe even with a side of seared foie gras. Don't miss out on the tasty sides like chopped salads and Romanoff potatoes!

“Definitely a steak and oyster place. Fresh seafood. And amazing steaks. A place that has FOIE GRAS. This place will be pricey but for special occasions it’s a perfect place. Atmosphere of this dining experience is amazing.” -SARAH on Google review


Shop AM5 Ada Lane, 46 James St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

Bianca is a gorgeous restaurant with a Mediterranean vibe, owned by the same team behind Agnes, Same Same, and Honto. Inside, you'll find peach-coloured walls, terracotta floors, and a ceiling adorned with wine bottles and metal grids. The best seats are at the salumi bar, where you can watch the chefs slice delicious meats like prosciutto, salami, and mortadella. They also serve grilled dishes, freshly made pasta, yummy desserts, and even cocktails inspired by the movie Inglorious Basterds. It's the perfect spot for a fun night out!

“All the food that we had was so good. I had been expecting to visit this place for a long time - couldn't be better! The food, services and all the vibes were amazing. Can't wait to visit again!” -Chloe Kim on Google review


11 Logan Rd, Woolloongabba QLD 4102, Australia

Eating at Detour isn't just about food—it's like experiencing a work of art! You'll be so amazed by the delicious flavours that you'll be on the edge of your seat. They mix ingredients in a special way that makes every bite exciting. There are lots of great choices, but everyone loves the classic Kentucky Fried Duck with sour cream and jalapeño cornbread. The whole meal is like a fun journey, starting with a fancy emu tartare with charred shallot, jalapeño, and egg yolk, and finishing with perfectly cooked carrots.

“The food is perfection. Flavours are balanced and we kept wanting more with every bite. We love every dish that came out and the service was wonderful too. They were quick, efficient and attentive to us. Will definitely be back again.” -Miss Annur TC on Google review


235 Edward St, Brisbane City QLD 4000, Australia

Start your Rothwell's experience with a drink at the martini bar by the entrance. Then, cozy up in one of their comfy green leather booths or grab a seat at the big marble oyster bar in the middle of the room. Don't miss out on trying their famous beef wellington and the eton mess for dessert—it's a must!

“The service was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We had the Beef Wellington and it did not disappoint. Been here a couple times in the past and the food has always been great.” -Rosana Brew on Google review

Joy Restaurant

7/690 Ann St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

Joy Restaurant, tucked away in a cozy corner of Bakery Lane, is a tiny spot with only ten chairs. From these seats, you can watch Chef Sarah Scott and bartender Maddie Smith in action in the kitchen. Despite its small size, Joy is incredibly popular—they're booked up six months ahead! That's pretty amazing, right? Whether you choose a short or long tasting menu, you'll have a chance to relax, chat with your neighbour, and leave feeling amazed by the experience.

“Perfect dinner. Couldn’t fault a thing. So nice to be able to chat to the chefs preparing your food and both Tim and Sarah are lovely!” -Lewis Ffrench on Google review

Rogue Bistro

14 Austin St, Newstead QLD 4006, Australia

Located in a semi-industrial region, Rogue Bistro is a bit of a secret gem. You just must return for their six-course degustation menu, which is one of Brisbane's most inventive yet mouth watering dining experiences. It changes every month. Not to worry, there are menus for plant-based, fish-based, and GF/DF diets as well.

“This place is sensational, the food and mood and the cocktail selection absolutely fantastic! Must recommend, and will do again!” -Darren Schuck on Google review


181 Robertson St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia 

At Essa, the cozy dark wood panels, brick walls, and views of greenery outside set the scene for a special date night. They use ingredients from local farmers, making simple but super tasty dishes. And don't forget to leave space for their famous Jerusalem artichoke cream bun—it's a must-try dessert!

“A beautiful dark moody restaurant just off James street. We ordered the set menu and it was delightful. The farm plate was a pleasant surprise, each item was treated with such care and was delicate and delicious.” -Cherie H on Google review

Same Same

Shop AM3 Ada Lane, 46 James St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006, Australia

Right next to The Calile hotel on Ada Lane, you'll find Same Same—a cool new spot that took over the old favourite, Longtime. They've got a stylish Thai-inspired bar and serve up tasty modern Thai food with a twist. We recommend trying the lamb shank massaman curry, the soft shell crab bao, and the grilled prawns with curry butter. It's sure to be a delicious meal!

“I have been to Same Same a few times and each time it has been a fantastic experience. The food is delicious, the service is fast and top notch, fit out is great and price is fair.” -Robert Rooney on Google review
