From 11.59pm on Friday, May 15, Queensland will ease a number of coronavirus-related restrictions. A selection of normal, everyday activities that have been off the cards since March will be permissible once again — including, excitedly, dining in at restaurants and cafes. Since late March, hospitality venues have only been allowed to open for takeaway and delivery, but from this weekend they'll be allowed up to ten customers inside at any one time, with a maximum of one person per four square metres. You'll need to keep 1.5 metres between yourself and other guests and regularly wash your hands, too. At this point pubs and bars cannot reopen.
When reopening for just ten customers isn't financially viable for all eateries, some have decided to take the plunge. So we've rounded up a list of our favourite spots re-opening for dine-in service — from Saturday, May 16 in most instances.
