8 Brisbane Restaurants Open Mondays

Not a fan of Mondays? Just because Monday marks the start of the working week doesn’t mean it needs to be a day that we dread. Make Mondays marvelous by pleasing your palate with a tasty meal at a cracking restaurant. Many chefs do in fact don an apron and turn up the heat in the kitchen for your dining pleasure on Monday nights. Here’s what’s open.

il Verde, Bowen Hills

Located in the heart of Fortitude Valley, il Verde’s modern Italian menu is hard to beat. They boast a passion for fresh, authentic flavours and we can confirm they certainly deliver with hearty pasta dishes and salads full of local produce. 

Polpetta, Brisbane

If you share a weakness for authentic Italian like us, you’ll love Polpetta. Don’t let the lavish location fool you – the atmosphere is relaxed and the menu full of rustic delights. 

Detour, Woolloongabba

Contemporary dining at it’s finest, this venue is located in a heritage building fit with exquisite ceilings, exposed brick walls and a pretty incredible menu. There’s even a boutique little bar in the corner if you’re not quite ready to head off after your meal. 

Goldfinch, Brisbane 

Sophisticated service inside an inviting, light-villed venue, Goldfinch will perk up your Monday with its Pacific-inspired Mediterranean dishes. Whether it’s for a business lunch or last minute coffee catch-up, Goldfinch is the perfect spot to start the week.

Colle Rosso, Red Hill

Offering a striking yet no nonsense approach to authentic Italian cuisine, Colle Rosso is bound to set your tastebuds soaring to Sardegna, or believing you are a cobble stone walk away from the Colosseum. Pasta please!

Public, CBD

This is a place of wonderful contradiction. There’s KFD (Kentucky Fried Duck) as well as delicate dishes such as sous-vide kingfish that’s as pretty as it is complex. And you’ll be happy to know that the drinks are just as good as the food. You’re allowed a wine on a Monday…right?

Libertine, Paddington

Vietnam may have bid farewell to the French colonials, but their spirit – including their notoriously decadent side – is alive and well at Libertine. We call it a little slice of Indochine in the famous old Paddington Barracks building on Petrie Terrace.
