River Quay

River Quay at South Bank is Brisbane's newest riverside restaurant precinct. Located at the far end of South Bank Parklands, near the Maritime Museum and Goodwill Bridge, this precinct is perfect for a fine dining experience, leisurely lunch or Sunday session.

Last Sunday, there were plenty of people soaking up the sun and the casual yet chic ambience. With amazing views of the Brisbane River and CBD, this is Brisbane's new hot spot.

There are several restaurants to choose from at River Quay; all offering outdoor dining to take advantage of the stunning vista.

Fine Dining

Stokehouse, nearest the Maritime Museum, offers a mouth-watering Mediterranean inspired menu. They have an extensive wine list as well as premium beers, cocktails, and spirits. If you are arriving by boat, Stokehouse has its own small craft mooring point. Otherwise, they have valet parking.

Leisurely Lunch

Popolo Italian Kitchen and Bar aims to re-create the experience of visiting nonna's house. As well as condiviso (shared plates) and traditional Italian pizzas, they also serve roast suckling pig daily. Enjoy a glass of wine and a shared plate on Popolo's patio.

The Jetty is owned by Jason & Katie Coats, owners of Liquorish and The Jetty in Bulimba. The inspiration for The Jetty at River Quay is 'Balinese holiday'; relax and unwind on their cushioned daybeds while sipping a champagne and taking in the view. Their menu is modern Australian with Asian accents.

Sunday Session

Cove Bar and Dining is my pick for a Sunday session. This place exudes cool with an exotic oyster collection and a creative cocktail list: Fairy Fizz, Riverside Crush and Cove Mango Mule.

All restaurants are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
