Father's Day: Sunday, September 1, 2019

Hi, Hungry, here’s where you need to take Dad this Father’s Day!

Skip the socks, jocks, and god-awful ties, and get Dad what he really wants on September 1a seat at any one of the amazing Father’s Day feasts below!

Salon De Co | Spring Hill

Beer is the drink of choice for dads across the country, and Salon De Co is combining five of Brisbane’s best brews with a five-course degustation, crafted by head chef Andy Ashby. All the beers come from within a 10km radius of Spring Hill and the head brewers of each will be there to chat with you and your dad about all things golden! Better yet, Dad can feel even more special when he gets the chance to vote for his “Best Brew of the Day.” Grab your ticket here.

Il Verde | King Street | Bowen Hills

Dad and his cheesy jokes will feel rights at home with this wheely yummy Father’s Day event! Book a table for Dad at Il Verde this Sunday, September 1, and he’ll receive polenta chips, house-made panna cotta, a pint of beer, and an unmissable pesto cheese wheel pasta (not to mention a fire bottle of chilli oil to take home!). Book now for just $59pp here

Otto Ristorante | CBD

Dads have pretty terrible memories sometimes (whose turn was it to pick up the kids, again?) but a Father’s Day lunch at Otto is one thing they’re sure to remember! Treat him to a sumptuous $85pp two-course, $125pp three-course, or even $155pp seven-course tasting menu that features all the best the sky-high restaurant has to offer.

La Lune Wine Co | South Brisbane

Five courses for $50. Need we say more? La Lune Wine Co are making a name for themselves for their ridiculously good food and their enticing tasting menus, as well as their super chic location in the heart of Fish Lane. Names don’t lie, and this one proves that the team at La Lune Wine Co are absolute masters of their craft. For an extra $40, treat Dad to matched wines with his five courses, and watch as you become his favourite child.

Osbourne Hotel | Fortitude Valley

We know Dad is fond of manning a barbeque, but some days he’s gotta risk it to get the brisket! Case in point at the Osbourne Hotel’s irresistible Father’s Day Smokehouse Lunch. Upon passing over the tongs, Dad will be rewarded with a pint, smoked beef brisket, southern style chicken wings, buttered corn on the cob and more, all for just $55pp. Book in here.

One Fish Two Fish | Kangaroo Point

Remember when Dad took you on fishing trips as a kid? Now you can return the favour at One Fish Two Fish, by letting him dive into their delish bottomless Fish & Sips! Book here to gift Dad a seafood feast paired with bottomless Balter beers for lunch from 11:30am to 1:30pm or 2pm to 4pm, or just head in from 11:30 to dine a la carp… sorry, carte. 


If all Dad needs is a good pub feed, treat him to the brilliant $14 parmigiana menu available as part of Little Big House’s 2nd Annual Parmy Party! Not only will he feel like king rooster munching on a parmy, but trivia running throughout the night will have him questioning something other than your life choices. Sounds like a win-win to us!

Thyme2 at Sofitel Brisbane Central | CBD

There’s Father’s Day feasting to be had all day long at Thyme2, where Dad can be treated to brekky from 6:30 am (the sparkling wine starts at 9 am, don’t worry), a Heineken over lunch thanks to the team at Thyme2, or free-flowing sparkling if he’s more of a bubbly bloke! Packages start at $55 for adults or $25 for children, so head here to suss them out and book in!

Ristorante Fellini | Main Beach

Pops would never dessert you, and never will Ristorante Fellini this Father’s Day! To help celebrate, Fellini on the Gold Coast is offering all fathers who dine with them on September 1 traditional Italian cream puffs as dessert for free! Make Dad’s puff pastry dreams come true and call (07) 5531 0300 to book a table today.

Victoria Park | Herston

The only thing Pops loves more than carving up a roast is critiquing other people doing it, and there’s no better place to let him go ham than Victoria Park’s buffet-style Father’s Day Feast. Their spread to end all spreads will feature a variety of carved roast meats, mixed roast veggies, gourmet salads, and plenty of giant games to keep grandkids and little siblings entertained! 

Seats to this stunning 11am-2pm luncheon can be booked here

Because who better to appreciate bold meals and well-aged wines with than your balding and well-aged Dad?


Keeping the G&G up to date with tasty tidbits requires a lot of lattes and espresso martinis, so we occasionally need to give out some sponsored love. Rest assured that we only work with businesses that we think are really nifty, as the sponsor for this post is!
