There is a wide range of dining options in Brisbane, from traditional Italian cuisine to Modern Australian, Indian and even classic fish and chips. And restaurants for all budgets too. To save some money though, why not make a picnic in South Bank Parklands? You can pick up gourmet cheeses from the deli or bread from Haagan’s bakery then grab a bottle of wine from one of the many liquor stores on Victoria street before walking through the parklands to enjoy your meal under the trees.
For something more intimate, go for dinner at one of Brisbane’s popular date night spots like Vintaged Bar located inside Treasury Hotel for an extensive wine list with over 50 wines by the glass. Then head across the road to The Elephant for some live music. If you are looking for something a bit more casual, try one of Brisbane’s many food courts at places like Wintergarden or QueensPlaza where you can enjoy cheap eats with your loved one whilst browsing through stores.
