Brisbane’s restaurants and cafes reopening for dine-in service

After months of lockdowns and takeaway-only feasts, it seems like going out for dinner is finally back on the menu. The first stage of easing the federal and state restrictions has commenced, meaning that restaurants and cafes can slowly start to welcome diners back in groups of ten from Saturday May 16. If you’re not up to date on the government’s three stage plan to reopen, you can catch up here, but essentially there will be a gradual removal of restrictions until venues are back to serving at full capacity. As great as this news is, it’s important to remember that we’re not out of the woods yet, so it’s crucial that restaurants and diners adhere to safety measures otherwise we’ll be back at square one in no time. If you’re keen to dine out, make sure you book – nearly all restaurants and cafes will be implementing strict reservation-only policies, so be sure to check in with the venue before visiting. We’ve compiled a rolling list of spots that will welcome you with open arms from this weekend on!
