Even when you're in the mood to celebrate and it's the night for doing just that, we're not all big party people. Some really know how to let their hair down but others prefer a more intimate get-together with their nearest and dearest by catching up over a suitably spirited meal. If you fall into the latter category then make a date with the Cleveland Sands Hotel.
This light and airy east Brisbane spot offers sweeping views over Raby Bay Harbour and is the sort of the reliable local that every suburb should have. The bistro menu features a selection of Mediterranean-inspired dishes, including pizzas, spanner crab linguini and vegan moussaka.
Plus, throughout the week, there are various food specials — including $15 steak on Mondays, $15 schnitzel on Tuesdays and $10 southern fried chicken every day — plus trivia on Wednesdays and karaoke every Friday night.
