Restaurants with views are often wonderfully romantic, and Brisbane has no shortage of these. There are numerous restaurant precincts scattered along the Brisbane River: Eagle Street Pier, Portside Wharf, and River Quay (South Bank's newest dining precint). The Summit Restaurant at Mount Coot-tha offers impressive panoramic views of Brisbane.
Golden Gondola offers romantic catered cruises right on the Brisbane River.
Brisbane has no shortage of fine dining options either. Weekend Notes writer, Carly Ogborne, has reviewed several award-winning restaurants including Aria (Eagle Street Pier), E'cco (Brisbane), and Restaurant Manx (Portside Wharf).
Garuva (Fortitude Valley) is a popular place for intimate dinner dates; dim lighting, floor cushions, and low tables enclosed with sheer curtains ensure privacy.
A restaurant does not need a celebrity chef, fancy food, fine wine, or even a view to make it romantic though. It could be the restaurant that you and your partner had your first date at or somewhere you first met. It could be that little Italian, Thai or Greek place just around the corner from home.
Where do you think the most romantic restaurant in Brisbane is?
