Indulge at The Barracks this Easter

Whether you’re stocking up on chocolate or looking for the perfect lunch spot, The Barracks is your Mecca for all things Easter.

By Hannah Doody | 31st March 2015

Has the Easter long weekend come around all too quickly and you have nothing organised?

The Barracks has all your Easter needs sorted – pick up your fresh seafood and Easter eggs or relax with a delicious long lunch at one of the many restaurants in the vibrant precinct. Conveniently located at the top of Petrie Terrace, head to The Barracks over Easter and make the most of the two-hour free parking!

Libertine Bar and Restaurant

Libertine food at The Barracks

BBQ duck pancakes at Libertine.

Looking for a lunch spot to take the family? Dine in at Libertine over Easter and indulge in Vietnamese-French fusion cuisine with their Easter menu. Enjoy a banquet for a minimum of two people, including entrée, main and salad for just $45 per person (the BBQ duck pancake is a must-try!) On-the-go and don’t have time to sit down? Grab a banh mi (meaning ‘bread’ in Vietnamese) in one of eight flavours which change daily. Pork fans will love the Three Little Pigs (roast pork, pork belly and pork terrine), or for a bit of kick try the pork, apple and chilli. If you’re gluten intolerant - never fear! All banh mi can be made as salads if bread isn’t your thing.

Libertine is trading as usual over the Easter break – open April 3 (Good Friday) – April 6 (Easter Monday) 12pm – 9pm.

The Chelsea


Wood-smoked salmon with pickled beetroot, chèvre mousse and walnuts $21.

We’ve had enough time to recover from the Christmas festivities and are ready to load up our plates with another holiday feast, just in time for the Easter long weekend. The Chelsea has recently launched a new menu full of fresh new flavours, bold textures and delicious dishes. If you’ve overloaded on chocolate and are searching for something small, their fixed-price deal is the perfect combination with one small plate, a light dish and glass of house wine for $35. A tasty range of entrees such as grilled baby octopus, and mains like pan-seared fish, will also be available. Finish off your feast with a decadent dessert – Easter is an indulgent holiday after all! The mess of Italian meringue or Tahitian lime Crème Brûlée are guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth.
