Brisbane Restaurants for a Valentine's Day dinner


1. Watt Restaurant + Bar | 119 Lamington St, New Farm

This is waterfront dining at its best. Watt Restaurant + Bar puts on a special "lover's menu" on every Valentine's Day. Last year its offer included a three course Australian produce-driven menu for $89 per person including a glass of bubbles on arrival. But hey, honestly, it's a romantic outpost to dine in any day of the year.

2. Customs House | 339 Queen St

Indulge in breakfast, lunch or tea at Customs House with the Story Bridge in your sights. On Valentine's Day, the historic venue offers 90-minute dining sessions. Every other day of the year that it's open though, you can stay as long as you like. Well, until they close, that is.
