When you visit Brisbane's Racecourse Road restaurant precinct in Ascot you'll understand why the area prides itself on connecting the racecourse to the river.
The popular Eagle Farm Racecourse is located at one end of the street, while the Brisbane River flows past at its other end. Surrounded by such active public places and located just five minutes from Brisbane city, it's surprising to find that Racecourse Road in Brisbane Australia is such a peaceful street.
Ascot has long been appreciated for the collection of quality restaurants, bars, cafes and delis lining both sides of Racecourse Road. Some of more established Brisbane restaurants are located here, and draw locals and in-the-know visitors back week after week, or visit after visit.
Thanks to the pleasant Brisbane weather, al fresco dining is enjoyed all along Racecourse Road. Grab a seat at one of the tables on the pavement and enjoy the shade of the old Poinciana trees by day, or the cool breezes running off the river by night. Racecourse Road restaurants are also great places to enjoy your lucky pre-race meal or celebratory post-race drink.
Settle in for an afternoon of cucumber sandwiches and Russian Caravan tea at the local tea house; purchase some gourmet chutneys from the bustling European-style deli; order some French delights at the established Parisian-inspired restaurant; or share a Thai-style banquet at one of the relaxed Thai restaurants.
