Brisbane’s culinary scene is heating up. While Sydney and Melbourne are the Aussie cities that steal the food limelight, there is a lot to discover here. Because of the temperate climate, dining al-fresco is the way to go, so get ready for beautiful Brisbane bites!

The people of Brisbane take their food and drink quite seriously. The dining out scene in Brisbane offers you the best of international cuisines ranging from European to Asian and everything in between. You can be assured that you will find something, whether you are looking for fine dining with river views, or a simple kebab roll to grab when on the move. Cafes with great coffee sit side by side with sushi stores and steakhouses.

Whether you are looking for a romantic date, a family night out or simply some takeaway for a quiet evening on the couch, the city has plenty of choices to suit every kind of budget and taste.

Key culinary hubs of Brisbane

For some of Brisbane’s celebrated restaurants, head to Eagle Street Pier in the Brisbane CBD area. From Japanese to seafood to all things modern Australian, the restaurants here are for those celebratory occasions.  The natural beauty of Brisbane River sashaying beneath Story Bridge creates a gorgeous back drop for a stunning meal.

Little Stanley Street in South Bank gives you the best views of Brisbane's CBD and takes you on an international culinary whirlwind. From Spanish tapas to Japanese teppanyaki, you will find it all here – on a budget that suits you.

At the corner of Elizabeth and Charlotte Streets as well as Fortitude Valley’s Chinatown and Brunswick Street, you will find a range of delicious, yet easy-on-the-wallet Asian fare. Fortitude Valley is also one of the best places to go out dancing, and Thursdays are student nights, so will be buzzing with young people.

For all-day breakfasts and some great roasted coffees, New Farm and West End are where you should be headed. These hubs are also home to a wide range of cocktail bars and lounges. But for the best breakfast, Teneriffe is home to Commercial Road, which takes its coffee very seriously.

Teneriffe is also where the specialised wine bars are located, for those who know their drinks well. The New Farm area is the classier section of Brunswick Street and is peppered with a range of bars and pubs. For the best of night life, walk explore Burnett Lane and look out for the cocktail and local beer bars. Greystone is for those after office hours drinks with the people from work and is a place you can stay in till the wee hours of the morning. Friday night salsa classes at the entrance are quite popular.

Come Friday or Saturday nights, Eat Street Markets at Hamilton Wharf are a food lover’s paradise. Live bands keep you company as you indulge in everything from okonomiyaki to freshly-shucked oysters.

Top picks from Brisbane’s food scene

With the huge range of options that Brisbane offers, it is natural that you may suffer from FOMO. But, pace yourself, try to find a new place every week, and be adventurous. Here are some good options across categories for you to choose from.

The best of caffeine: Brew, located after a bit of a hunting at the end of Burnett Lane, is where you should go for some great coffee by day, and come night, some fabulous wine. Don’t miss the eclectic crockery and art by talented local artists. Located at the top part of the street is Felix. This is place that lays immense emphasis on organic produce. The natural light streaming in makes this a wonderful space to sit back and enjoy a coffee with a book.

Cheap eats: There are several options when it comes to cheap eats. Ben’s Burgers at Fortitude Valley is an institution in itself. At AUD20 for a burger, chips and a beer, it can’t get better than this. There is also Botanica on Red Hill and Teneriffe, where salad portions are great for two meals. Comfort food at Hellbound, New Farm is something you should treat yourself to. And Defiant Duck in Newstead has some incredible bargains on hot dogs, burgers and rump steaks.

Fine dining: The top-rated fine dining options include Donna Chang which offers modern Asian food. For slick Australian cuisine, Blackbird Bar and Grill is definitely one to try. Your other option this category could be Moo Moo, the wine bar and grill. For some classic French, La Vue Waterfront Restaurant is a good bet, while Centro is where you go to for all things Italian.

Heritage spots: The Gresham's cedar doors take you through to the 19th century with an intriguing metal ceiling, classic Chesterfield sofas and stools in worn red leather. A place for some great whiskies, this one is a must on the Brisbane list.

For some great brews: West End is where you have a massive selection of Australia’s finest beer-centered venues. Microbrewery Catchment Brewing Co has a beer menu that’s constantly changing so you always have something interesting and new to try. Their unusual beers are the ones to watch out for, but you have to be quick to try them before they sell out. A short distance from there is Archive, a comfy space with sofas, book decor and what is perhaps the biggest selection of on-tap beers in the city.

Vietnamese to please: Besides all these options, you could consider checking out the beef and betel leaf dumplings at Hello Please, a restaurant that functions out of a shipping container.
