Southbank, Brisbane – Cafes and restaurants situated in Brisbane’s Southbank Parklands have generally been a disappointing affair: over-priced, sluggish service and average food. A few years ago, that started to change and new breed of restaurants, bars and cafes have emerged. Sardine Tin is one of these.
I first stumbled across Sardine Tin while walking to meet friends at the Stokehouse. It’s an outdoor, corner bar that offers European inspired tapas and a small selection of good wines. It’s the perfect place to park yourself to escape the sometimes suffocating Brisbane heat while enjoying a cool glass of your favourite wine.
The staff are friendly and the vibe is relaxed. Its minimal furnishings are a cross of modern steel and an old-school Italian kitchen. While the prices are a little higher than what you pay in other parts of Brisbane, they are on par with other Southbank restaurants and bars.
The Sardine Tin is a great place to meet friends, have a quick bite or even enjoy some time to yourself while watching a hazy Brisbane day slip away.
