City Restaurants Reopening
From Saturday, 16 May, some of Brisbane City’s most delicious dining establishments have re-opened their doors to host up to 10 people at a time.
Discover the newly re-opened City restaurants and bars below and be sure to plan your brekky, lunch or dinner reservations ASAP.
Don’t worry, if you prefer dining in the comfort of your home while in your trusted trackies and hoodie, you can also order takeaway from these restaurants and bars.
Remember, it’s still paramount for all of us to practice good hygiene and remain 1.5m apart from other people when dining out.
