Where to dine on Christmas Day 2020

Christmas lunch Brisbane

We are all big fans of the festive season, but not big fans of the chaos that can often ensue. Don’t worry, Brisbane… we’ve got your back.

Not a cook? Don’t feel like doing the washing up? No worries—leave it to the pros. Hark, some of Brisbane’s best Christmas breaky, lunch and dinner spots…


It’s Thyme2 discover joie de vivre this Christmas as you head into Sofitel Brisbane Central for a day of dining. Sofitel’s own Thyme2 Restaurant will be offering a breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, with its famed buffet returning with a COVID-safe twist. Breakfast classics like eggs Benedict and omelettes will be dished up for you, while the lunch and dinner buffets will be dressed to the nines with Christmas delights like roast turkey, ham, porchetta, and beef with all the trimmings, an Aussie seafood bar, Japanese nori maki and nigiri, and a whopping Christmas dessert section. Both lunch and dinner include free-flowing French sparkling, alongside house wines, beers, and soft drinks. 

Level 30’s Club Millésime will also be open for adults only, with a two-course breakfast or three-course lunch in the exclusive lounge alongside a generous beverage package. For more information and to book your spot at one of Sofitel Brisbane Central’s Christmas day events, please email


Fancy a Parisian Christmas this year? While you can’t quite hop on a plane and head to France, you CAN head to C’est Bon for a generous Christmas lunch feast.

As you sip on French bubbles, enjoy share plates like duck liver eclairs and blinis with crème fraiche and roe. French festivities continue with a delightful crab Thermidor and pork terrine, before a star dish of chicken with chestnut and sage stuffing and apricot, served alongside duck fat potatoes, beetroot, and peas a la Francaise.

Tables are extremely limited–give the team a buzz on 07 3891 2008 to discuss! 


Get the best of both worlds this Christmas Day as you enjoy gourmet eats from Treasury Brisbane’s kitchen from the comfort of your home! The takeaway hampers can be pre-ordered and picked up on Christmas Eve.

With options for up to ten guests, the classic hamper comes complete with a roast rib of beef, baked ham, baked turkey breast, barramundi and an array of roast veg on top of five desserts like lemon tart, plum pudding and red velvet cake. The deluxe hampers are even more enticing, with divine salmon portions and Champagne sauce added to the mix, as well as an impressive gingerbread house. Seafood and salad upgrades can be added to the hampers, with local prawns and oysters elevating things even more. Head here to browse and place your order.


Feliz Navidad! Black Fire’s three-course, share-style feast is overflowing with punchy flavours and is perfect for the whole fam. Things will kick off with tapas-style entrees like grilled chorizo bruschetta, goat cheese churro with mojo verde sauce, and roasted baby peppers stuffed with prawn and crab. Meat-lovers, prepare to start drooling as the star of the show is brought out… We’re talking slow-roasted suckling pig and lamb with all the Spanish-style trimmings you could ask for. Spanish dessert canapés will finish your meal with a bang, as you wash everything down with a signature sangria jug, or a Christmas-inspired cocktail. 

There’s two seatings available–the first from 11 am to 1:15 pm and the second from 1:30 to 3:30pm. Tickets are only $75pp and can be purchased here, or by calling the team on 3013 0058.


It’s all about indulgence at Hillstone St Lucia this Chrissie day, with an unlimited a la carte lunch open to all. The event will run from 11.30 am until 3.30 pm–giving you plenty of time to soak up the day with your loved ones, while the menu offers a wide range of eats with hot and cold seafood plates, fried chicken, and four different roasts with all the trimmings. We’re particularly excited about that eggnog mousse with soft gingerbread, praline cream, and candied hazelnuts for dessert, though.

For a true family Christmas experience, Libertine is serving a lunch feast of eight mouth-watering share plates, with those signature French/Vietnamese flavours at the fore.

With seatings at 11.30 am and 1.30 pm, Libertine’s Christmas lunch is close to selling out, so book your gang in here, stat! 

Make our wish come true… all we want for Christmas is food. 


Keeping The G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally collaborate with local businesses we love, like this one. To see how we can help you out and to learn more about our food-crazy audience, head here.
