Seafood Restaurants Brisbane

Seafood cravings working you into a frenzy?

From lobster on white tablecloths to crispy fish and chips taken away to eat on the balcony, we’ve gathered a list of the best seafood restaurants Brisbane has to offer.

One Fish Two Fish | Kangaroo Point

One Fish Two Fish is simply what seafood dreams are made of. Kick back in the revamped Kangaroo Point Queenslander, sip on a spritz and feast on as much seafood as your heart desires. Expect a mixture of classic and modern seafood dishes with a creative twist, such as spanner crab tagliatelle and that iconic panko-crumbed Quarter Flounder burger.

Rico Bar and Dining | CBD

Riverfront dining and seafood go hand in hand, and Rico is here to provide us with just that. For any seafood fan, their signature seafood paella and live oysters are a sure winner, accompanied by a generous sip of sangria.

The Fishery | Milton

The Fishery could lay claim to having Brisbane’s best fish and chips, and we wouldn’t argue. Owner Murray Dalton worked as a chef for over 20 years before setting up this joint dedicated to sourcing the freshest seafood on the market. We’re going (cray)fish for it!

SK Steak and Oyster | Fortitude Valley

SK Steak and Oyster oozes class, specialising in high-end seafood (oysters, of course), as well as Moreton Bay bugs, lobster, crab and more. The stunning setting will make you feel like you’ve stepped into a James Bond movie, so be sure to order a martini and get into character. 

Gambaro | CBD

A true Brisbane icon, Gambaro never lets us down when it comes to fresh seafood. Showcasing the highest quality produce and freshest flavours, expect a diverse range of dishes such as linguini marinara and seafood platters that won’t leave even the most devoted seafood-lovers hungry. 

River Quay Fish | South Bank

River Quay Fish is here to provide top-notch seafood in a warm, relaxing atmosphere. Kick back and soak in those picturesque river views whilst indulging in some of the best seafood Brisbane has to offer. If it’s a sunny day, get your meal to-go in one of their picnic hampers, and get picnicking on the lush green in the heart of South Bank.

Mr Percival’s | CBD

Located in the bustling Howard Smith Wharves precinct, Mr Percival’s cannot be beaten when it comes to location. Set up shop out on the water with a drink in one hand, and a fresh oyster in the other. 

Reef Seafood | Gasworks

For a taste of high-quality, fresh seafood in a casual al fresco atmosphere, Reef Gasworks has you covered. The Japanese-inspired seafood hotspot is famous for their epic share platters that are every seafood-lover’s dream, featuring a mixture of hot, cold, western and Japanese seafood items. Their fresh sushi and sashimi is also a must-try, so grab your favourite seafood-loving friends and get feasting!

Kingsley’s | CBD

For a premium seafood experience, Kingsley’s delivers. Sophisticated yet relaxed, the restaurant offers world-class views, as well as seafood. They specialise in premium steaks and sea eats, offering daily fresh fish specials and freshly shucked oysters. 

Sea Fuel | West End

Masters of their craft, the team at Sea Fuel make this West End haunt a go-to for top tier fish and phenomenal chips. From their gourmet seafood platters to their generous share plates and wide range of fish offerings, it’s up to you whether you dine in or have your feast to-go! 

The Prawnster | Kangaroo Point

For the freshest seafood you can get your hands on, look no further than The Prawnster. You can find the tiny 14 seat restaurant onboard a vintage prawn trawler docked in Kangaroo Point. Experience a unique dining experience and indulge in some of the best seafood Brisbane has to offer. Get cosy onboard the boat, or opt to pick up some prawns to take home. 

 

Don’t know where to eat? In the words of everyone’s favourite fish, “just keep swimming.”
