Sunday lunch at Stokehouse

Stokehouse is a very stylish restaurant beside the river in Brisbane…a perfect place for lunch on a sunny winter Sunday.


The food is modern Australian…and delicious.

The first little treat brought to our table was deep fried, stuffed olives. They disappeared quickly.


The entree is a shared plate, with pork terrrine, crumbed fried bocconcini and something very delicious, but I don’t remember what it was called.



For the main course we ordered barramundi.


And lamb with barley risotto.


A delightful salad came too.


Dessert was lemon tart (look at that crunchy top) with licorice ice cream.



My friend ordered the cheese plate.


Our table was very close to the river…busy with all types of boats.


We walked along the river after lunch.



Winter in Brisbane is just about perfect.


Stokehouse is open every day from midday for lunch and dinner.


  1. What a lovely Sunday treat!

    • It was a very nice thing to do on a Sunday.

  2. Deep fried stuffed olives,what did they use to stuff the olives?

    • I think it may have been goat cheese.

  3. Yes you are right, it does look perfect. We will visit one day!

    • Brisbane is a great city, you should come one day.

  4. Hi, southern neighbour! Brisbane has sure come along in the last decade or so. Licorice ice-cream!!! Yumm-o.

    • Brisbane has been excellent for many years, and getting better all the time.

  5. Delicious – food, weather and walk 🙂

    • Something to do when you come back to Australia.

  6. Will definitely be sharing this one with some of my Brisbane friends 🙂

    • Stokehouse is a wonderful restaurant, take your friends.

  7. How much did it cost in Euros?

    • Considerably more than something in Bagni di Lucca.

  8. What a treat! Lovely to hear that you enjoyed it!

    • It was a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

  9. That cheese plate has me drooling.
    Also I like your photo grids. Cute.

    • You will have to try it when you come to Brisbane next time.

  16. Hi Debra, are you still in Brisbane or have I missed you? I have been under a rock this year and am not sure where the time had gone! Would love to catch up if you have some time.

    • I have been back a few weeks and I am here until October. We should meet for a coffee soon.

  17. How posh! Each plate a work of art; what a CHARMED Life you lead. Beata te. And thank you for sharing it with all of us!!

  18. Looks really swish! I love modern Australian cooking. If I think what we used to eat in the faraway seventies! Love that crunchy-topped lemon tart – I would go straight for that!

    • Food in Australia has come a long way…thank you to people coming from other places to help us in that area.

  19. My eyes are on the scrumptious desserts and the beautiful views.

    • The dessert was excellent.
