Fancy an Instagrammable moment on your next food adventure? When it comes to the dining scene in Australia, it’s time to think pink. Luckily, the country is embracing the colour more than ever through cerise backdrops, vibrant cuisine, fuschia cocktails and neon-lit signs. So, charge your phones and mosey on down to all the best pink restaurants and bars in Australia.
Brisbane: Rose Room
As one of the best pink restaurants in Brisbane, Rose Room is a stunning shout. Decked out with rose murals, Champagne racks and pretty lighting, the Turkish joint is perfect for cosy weekend breakfasts in a chic setting. If you fancy hiring out the space when the weather is warm, they’ve got a quaint laneway where cherry blossoms hang above the alfresco area.
Boasting blush-coloured walls and paisley-patterned seating, Misfits is one of our favourite pink restaurants in Sydney. Fabulous for decadent dinners, the venue oozes modern elegance with aesthetically-pleasing plates to match. While chowing down on a lush crab linguine, quench your thirst with a coconut margarita – a mix of 1800 Coconut Tequila, pineapple, lime and a touch of sugar.
Brisbane: Comuna Cantina
Latin American cuisine and beaut cocktails make Comuna Cantina a must-visit for dreamy dining destinations. With locations in Brisbane City and Everton Park, the venues have a pink landscape, complete with potted cacti and booths flaunting geometric prints. For something extra special, check out their bottomless margarita and tacos deal every Sunday from 2pm to 4pm. That means endless tequila drinks, beer and wine for two glorious hours.
From the rose-covered walls to the trendy food and leather booths, this next venue is all about pink… and so is its name. Fab for girls' nights out and brunches, Pink is hands down one of the most Instagrammable pink restaurants in Melbourne. We’ll let you in on a secret: wear the iconic colour on Wednesdays and you’ll get 20% off your bill. That’s so fetch.
Sydney: Roca Café Pink
Geometric light fixtures? Cool neon signs? Bubblegum shades throughout? Yes, yes and yes. In Sydney, Roca Café Pink is your go-to brunch spot for snap-worthy photos. Settle into their velvet-clad chairs as you take pics of the prettiest avo toast, sweet pastries and much more. If that wasn’t enough, the pink palace promises latte art to die for – we’re talking luxe Dior and Gucci designs.
Brisbane: Ping Pong
One of the best pink places to eat in Brisbane, Ping Pong will certainly wet your whistle if you’re craving Thai food. Fronting magenta hues throughout, the eatery is perfect for any photoshoot, whether you’re grabbing cocktails at the sleek bar or cuddled up in their banquet seating. Get stuck into fragrant curries, duck fried rice and spicy green papaya salads, alongside a tropical drink.
If you’ve got a penchant for Mexican cuisine, we recommend making your way to Chula. The cave-like venue showcases wicker lampshades and agave plants, not to mention gorgeous peach shades throughout. Thirsty? For something sweet, go for a classic paloma or add little spice in your life with their jalapeno margarita - it packs quite the punch.
Sydney: Chin Chin
While Chin Chin isn’t entirely pink, their chairs and fuchsia neon lighting make this hotspot extra special. In Surry Hills, the South Asian restaurant slings out everything from crispy duck pancakes to seared tuna and lamb ribs. Come evening, the venue transforms into the ultimate party spot featuring regular drag events and live music.
Melbourne: House Of Lulu White
We’d be silly not to give a shoutout to House of Lulu White as the brunch spot features baby pink walls with palm tree prints. The Melbourne venue is ideal for cute lunch dates and casual breakfasts with friends. To go with the pink vibes, grab a red velvet hot chocolate during the colder months or opt for rosè sangria because wine not?
