Set your mouths to salivate, foodies, because Brisbane has the hot tables to tantalise your tastebuds.
Being a cosmopolitan city, you’ll find a wide variety of cuisines from suburb to suburb. Dining al fresco is how the locals like it, and with the ocean and forest at Brisbane’s doorstep, you’ll often find the produce locally sourced and as fresh as can be.
A must-eat when in town are Moreton Bay bugs, a species of lobster sourced in nearby Moreton Bay. And if you’re the kind who likes to meet the makers, the Makers Markets is the place to be. Held on Wednesday nights, it’s a foodie’s delight, chock-full of local food makers serving up artisan dishes made from ethically sourced ingredients.
For every other night, though, there are these dining stunners:
Helmed by one of Australia’s most celebrated chefs, Philip Johnson, e’cco bistro is a two-hatted restaurant specialising in modern Australian fare.
Pick and choose from the a la carte menu or, to savour all the flavours and colours on offer, opt for the tasting menu, which you can have on its own or paired with a wine. Both are exceptional options.
If you’re stuck for choice, take a page out of Visit Brisbane’s book and snack on e’cco bistro’s freshly baked chocolate-chip cookies and consider yourself in heaven.
100 Boundary St, Brisbane
Sit your hide down and sink your chops into the mouthwatering meats at what’s been awarded Australia’s best steakhouse at the National Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence.
TripAdvisor users rate this joint as the second-best restaurant in Brisbane, with one diner saying “writing this review made my mouth drool just thinking about the dishes”.
Wipe that drool of your face and start eating.
36 Caxton Street, Petrie Terrace
Serving up immaculately plated modern Italian cuisine, Il Centro was made for that special occasion.
Boasting prime positioning on Eagle Street Pier and overlooking Brisbane River, this famed establishment is perhaps best known for its exquisite and innovative seafood dishes. The most legendary of these is its sand crab lasagne. Try it. We dare you.
Eagle Street Pier, 1 Eagle Street, Brisbane
For fusion at its finest, Longtime combines local Australian produce with Asian flavours to bring you a taste sensation you won’t easily forget.
Take, for example, its Moreton Bay bug curry, which pairs the lobster with Asian greens and creamy coconut. For something with a little more novelty, hit up Madam Wu for her Moreton Bay bug dumplings.
Did we mention Brisbane is all about the bugs?
610 Ann Street, Fortitude Valley
Bacchus is the full dining experience from top to toe. The venue drips with opulent modern design while the menu is seasoned with gourmet modern Australian dishes.
Choose between a la carte or degustation by night, or keep it light with a high tea indulgence between meals.
Voted the number-one restaurant in all of Brisbane by TripAdvisor users, you’ve got a lot to answer for if you consider yourself a foodie and don’t make it to Bacchus.
Podium Level, Cnr Grey Street & Glenelg Street, South Brisbane
This one might be a chain but it’s well worth the hype, and unlike the other outfits on this delicious list, it’s right in the heart of the city in Queen Street Mall – so you can get your shopping and eating done all at once.
The fit-out stays true to the traditional with wide wooden tables and private washitsu rooms with tatami-style flooring and low tables. The menu reads much the same, with banquets of tempura, Wagyu steak and sushi for dinner and mixed bento boxes for lunch.
Tattersalls, Edward Street & Queen Street, Brisbane

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature.
