The chic riverside suburb of Teneriffe is a paradise for food-lovers, with a range of restaurants, cafés and bars sure to satisfy any cravings.
From long, lazy brunches to pre-dinner drinks and romantic meals, we reveal the best places to eat and drink in Teneriffe.
Samson & Sophie
Pop by this quaint café for a simple slice of fruit and nut toast topped with honey ricotta, or sink your teeth into slow-cooked Italian sausage in rich tomato sauce with poached eggs served over organic sourdough.
Taking a passionate approach to healthy eating with tasteful flair, Wilde Kitchen’s all-day breakfast options include coconut and almond porridge, salmon with avo, greens and fermented veg, and sticky pork with spiced pumpkin tahini, pomegranate and fried duck egg on seeded toast. Wash it down with a green smoothie or one of their tonic shots.
Kin & Co
Boasting beautifully-plated food with an all-day breakfast menu that just won’t quit, Kin & Co is a hidden gem. Standout options are the Spanish baked corn hash with Havarti and smoked garlic, and the Moroccan-spiced baked eggs with a bean medley, roast garlic yoghurt and seasoned warm Turkish bread.
Botanica Real Food
If you’re on the hunt for breakfast on the go, you’re in for a treat at Botanica. Pick up a breakfast box with options including overnight oats with toasted coconut and cocoa nibs, and fresh figs and honey sourdough tartines.
The Dalgety Public House
While the interior of this gastro pub is certainly impressive, the menu is the real hero. Plant yourself at one of the communal tables and sink your teeth into a pork belly bun with apple slaw and truffle mayo skinny fries with a side of crackle. They’ve also got an extensive range of beers on tap, as well as cool cocktail concoctions such as the Chilli Lemongrass Coconut or the Rum Treacle cocktail.
The Twig & Berry
Tucked away in old union headquarters beneath a commercial building, this hidden bar is a cocktail-lover’s dream. Try the Boxcutter Smash – a rich and spicy creation involving whisky, mint, fresh raspberries, lime and house-spiced fig syrup. The Clockwork Orange is a sweet blend of gin, Aperol, crème de pêche, lemon juice, sugar and passionfruit.
Caffeine Espresso and Wine Bar
Caffeine-lovers will adore the spin put on the traditional espresso martini, with variations including mocha, vanilla, salted caramel and chili chocolate.
Whether you’re catching up with friends or partners, Claret House is the perfect place to enjoy a lavish dinner. Graze on charcuterie boards filled with delicious cheeses, olives, cured meats and artisan breads, and tapas plates of confit pork fillet, lime and ginger glazed chicken with bush thyme or a main of herb crusted rack of lamb with carrot puree and a lamb reduction.
For a slice of Italian in Teneriffe, Beccofino is a top choice. Their delicious pasta dishes include duck or slow-roasted pork shoulder ragù in a rich tomato sauce.
Eves on the River
With expansive river views and a menu inspired by fresh, seasonal produce, Eves on the River is the perfect location for a romantic dinner. Save room for dessert with options including a chocolate torte with hazelnuts and cream or the salted caramel crème brûlée with popcorn ice-cream.
From traditional charcuterie, tapas and paella to quality wines, beers and sangria, Cutty Sark is a great date night location for the couple that loves food.
With beautiful views overlooking the Brisbane river, Aqualinea is the perfect date night spot if you’re out to impress. Woo your special someone with dishes such as ocean trout with charred cos lettuce, kipfler potatoes, surf clams, pistachio and herb beurre blanc or muscovado-glazed pork with chestnut and green tea.
Japanese dishes have never tasted so good. Plating up the most authentic Japanese in Brisbane, Mizu will have you looking forward to all the faves, including sashimi, chicken karaage, tonkatsu and bento boxes.
