Queensland Restaurants

 

ARIA Brisbane

A decade after opening the doors to the highly-acclaimed ARIA in Sydney, co-owners Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan caught lightning in a bottle again, as they debuted ARIA Brisbane, boasting an innovative menu that resonates modern Australia. Backdropped by the Brisbane River and the Story Bridge, ARIA Brisbane brings a delightful framework for exquisite edibles like roast rack of lamb with gnocchi or pan-seared snapper fillet with brandade.

Justin Lane Pizzeria and Bar

A rough, urban decor envelops the interior of Justin Lane Pizzeria and Bar, but that's just fine. After all, the queue out the door isn't for the restaurant's looks - it's for the pizza. Justin Lane has evolved into one of the busiest spots in Burleigh Heads, and customers can't seem to get enough of the laid-back setup with the fresh, savory assortment of pizzas (not to mention other Italian favorites) hitting the tables.
