It’s happening again. You’re spending Christmas day at your mother’s house. It’s boiling because your dad refuses to get AC, but your granny won’t eat anything short of a full roast dinner. Your nephews have already knocked over the Christmas tree twice, and your aunt insists on feeding them her way-too-boozy rum cake. When everyone finally leaves you are guilted into cleaning a world record number of dishes as your mum goes on about her bad back.
What if we told you it doesn’t have to be this way? That you could spend your Christmas in the balmy breeze or comforts of controlled air temperature, with your choice of food and absolutley no washing up? We're talking about booking a table and going out this Christmas. Rally the fam and outsource the Xmas feast to one of these restaurants on Christmas Day. Here's where to book Christmas Day lunch in Brisbane.

Spend Chrissy lunch overlooking the Brisbane River while tucking into a festive feast at WATT. On arrival they'll greet you with a drink, then chase it up with four courses of sheer culinary bliss.

Capri will have their restaurant Asana open for lunch this Christmas day. Asana’s menu is paleo-inspired, meaning mostly gluten, dairy, and refined sugar free—did someone say gulit-free feasting? Their health consciousness does not, however, hinder how tasty, fresh and unique their dishes are. Book for either a two or three course meal this Christmas Day and indulge in a truly delicious buffet of fresh seafood that won’t have you feeling like a stuffed turkey after.
