What's new for food and drink fans at South Bank

Start salivating people – South Bank’s superb dining precinct is welcoming three brand-new restaurants this May. From German to doughnuts to Caribbean cuisine (yes, really!) you’ll be chomping at the bit to taste their fare. Here’s what’s coming:

Main Street Market Doughnuts

Main Street Market

Now open in the Parklands’ Central Café precinct (near the Boat Pool), Main Street Market is a purely indulgent affair. 

It specialises in creative, colourful doughnut flavours that change regularly (vanilla ice, salted caramel, toffee apple and lamington are just a few) plus drool-worthy milkshakes like cherry ripe flavour, snickers flavour and more.

Not keen on treating yourself to some sugar? That’s ok – the coffee is delectable too.

Munich Brauhaus

If devouring schnitzel, pork knuckle, pretzel, sausages and other German delicacies sounds like your kind of meal, head on over to Munich Brauhaus. 

It opens on Friday, 4 May in Stanley Street Plaza and will be serving up lunch and dinner in the style of a traditional Bavarian bierhaus that spans two levels – a main dining hall, plus an alfresco bier garden. Dinner time even includes a live Oompah Band every night of the week!

In keeping with tradition, Munich’s bier is brewed using only the finest source water and just three other natural ingredients – malt, hops and yeast. There's also a range of schnapps, wine and vodka being served up too.


One of the more unusual concepts to hit the southern shores of Brisbane this year is Barbossa – a Caribbean bar located on Little Stanley Street.

Nestled in the spot formerly occupied by Greystones, Barbossa is opening in the first week of May. The menu includes jerk chicken wings (char-grilled chicken dry-basted in Jamaican-style herbs), lime-chilli corn, beef empanadas and more. All dishes were inspired by the Caribbean’s eclectic make-up – the cuisine is influenced by more than 40 countries around the world.

In addition to food, Barbossa will have an adjoining bottleshop and extensive bar menu offering beer, wine, cocktails and about 25 varieties of rum, scotch and international whiskies.
