River Quay

A welcome escape from the bustling pace of Brisbane’s CBD, River Quay's picturesque beauty isn’t the only thing that sets this precinct apart; adorning the river’s edge are five of Brisbane’s premiere dining destinations, who continue on South Bank’s long history of agricultural integrity. Stokehouse Q, Aquitaine Brasserie, Popolo Italian Kitchen and Bar, The Jetty, and Cove Bar + Dining complete the riverfront experience, each offering up their own distinctive cuisine style while all sharing a passion for and focus on the local food community.


Throughout July and August, River Quay is celebrating the best of Queensland produce with the introduction of its ‘Winter Chef Series.’  The Head Chefs of Stokehouse Q, Aquitaine, Popolo, The Jetty and Cove Bar & Dining have been hard at work developing a series of menus set to showcase the best of our local and seasonal produce.

Every fortnight, each of River Quay's head chefs will celebrate a different range of produce, highlighted through a special mid-week $45 two-course meal, with accompanying drink.

The fortnightly themes are:

Mon 4 – Fri 15 July: Qld Fish Mongers
Mon 18 – Fri 29 Jul: Qld Cheese Makers
Mon 1 – Fri 12 Aug: Qld Nose to Tail
Mon 15 – Fri 26 Aug: Qld Salad Bowl

If the offer isn’t tantalising enough, we’ve got your mid-week lunch parking sorted at just $5 and your dinner parking for $6.
