Date Night at River Quay

If it’s date night, then River Quay is the perfect choice for wining, dining, and enjoying a spectacular view that you won’t find anywhere else. Here are some of the best dishes for date night.

To Start
Oysters are a must. You’re situated right next to the river with light dancing off the water in what is one of Brisbane’s most romantic spots, so oysters are a fabulous way to start the evening. You can enjoy fresh oysters from Stokehouse Q, Oysters of the Day with lemon or steamed with soy, ginger, and shallot from The Jetty, or natural and Double Smoked Bacon Kilpatrick from Cove Bar & Dining.

For Mains
Follow up your starters with a sumptuous French seafood main from Aquitaine – after all, who does romance better than the French? Their Marseille Bouillabaisse combines local fish and shellfish in a tomato, Ricard, and saffron broth and it’s an exquisite dish that will impress, as well as test your proficiency at French pronunciation! If a full fillet is more your style, try The Jetty‘s grass-fed Manning Valley fillet with charred spring beans, sweet potato, and horseradish cream, sure to be a hit with the gents.

To Finish
Finish with dessert from Popolo with a plate of three cheeses, mustard fruits, and quince paste or silence that sweet tooth with their Semifreddo alla’amarena: a cherry parfait with praline, pannetone (sweet bread) and vin santo (a sweet dessert wine). There’s really nothing like sharing an authentic Italian dessert with the one you love.

To Surpass
And for drinks? Take a walk on the adventurous side with a mix up from Cove’s Mojito Madness menu. They have five different mojito concoctions on offer to top off your romantic dinner. If you’re really looking to impress, try a vintage Perrier Jouët Belle Époque Blanc from Epernay in Northern France, an elegant champagne named after France’s golden age and stocked in limited supply at Aquitaine.
