Victoria Park Bistro
Although only two kilometres from the city, you’ll feel a world away from the rush of Brisbane at Victoria Park's Bistro. Situated right next to the Victoria Park Parklands with stunning views of the city skyline, it's not hard to stick around and soak up the lush green surroundings.
Perched at the top of Victoria Park precinct, the Victoria Park Bistro goes hard on outdoor ambiance, offering a selection of alfresco dining spaces including the main restaurant, terrace and beer garden. Whether you’re after a quiet corner for a romantic evening, or a large picnic table for the crew, they’ve got a spot for you.
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, there’s some serious choice when it comes to dining at Victoria Park Bistro. Expect a mouth-watering menu of seasonal bites packed with local ingredients. For a boujee brekky, you can’t go past the sauteed wild mushrooms with kale, pecorino and black truffle oil, or opt for a plate of gingerbread pancakes with cinnamon butter, caramelised banana and apple chips. We’re salivating.
For lunch and dinner, you'll want to park up in the beer garden with a pint in hand and check out their brand new menu. Enjoy a classic woodfired pizza or a sumptuous burger—the popcorn cauliflower will keep the vegetarians happy—if you're looking for something casual. If pizzas and burgers aren't your thing, the mains menu boasts a catalogue of drool-worthy dishes including porchetta with white bean mash, pappardelle with slow cooked lamb ragu and a 250g striploin with king mushroom and potato fondant. Just try to choose only one dish—we dare you.
And that’s not all, make a day of it by spending some time exploring Victoria Park precinct. You’ve got both Putt Putt and a driving range to keep the adults entertained, while there’s a playground (and jumping castle on the weekend) for the little ones. Plus, if you’re celebrating something special, the team has you covered with packages to suit any size event, from a special set lunch to a big birthday bash.
So what are you waiting for? Book in for Victoria Park Bistro next time you need to escape the city, minus the long car ride.
