Destination Dining

If you’re craving the flavours of international travel, Rosalie Village is the destination to get your fix! Immerse yourself in Japan with starters at Uncle Don. You can’t go past the salmon sashimi, burnt eggplant dip with lotus chips and parmesan karaage chicken!

Fly on over to India with Mains at Old Monk Modern Indian. With mouthwatering large plates and many vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options this place has something for everyone. You can get your fill of Mango Prawn Curry, Chicken Madras, Palak Paneer or Duck Makhmali…so many flavourful delights!

Bring on the Italian vibes for dessert at Gelateria Cremona. With all the classic flavours plus a rotating range of unique tastes such as cardamom and orange, early grey, fig & ricotta and pistachio. If gelato and sorbet doesn’t tempt you, you can also finish off the evening with an Italian hot chocolate, espresso, ice coffee or affogato. And if you’re then inspired to book your international adventure, Noller & Turner Travel Associates, have you covered!

Family Flicks

If it’s a family night you’re after, you can’t go past the fresh burgers at Grill’d Rosalie to make everyone happy. Follow that by walking the red carpet together to see the latest blockbuster at Cinebar, where everyone can enjoy an indulgent chocolate brownie or choc cookie ice cream sundae brought to their seat!

Indulgence Day

You know you deserve it! When you need that special pampering, start off with a float therapy, infrared sauna or massage at City Cave. Pop in next door for a coffee and a pastry at #eightsixcafe, before getting some more ‘me time’ with an organic infusion facial at Endota Day Spa to feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Refuel with a healthy and delicious Poke Bowl from Sushi Lovers before a blow waves style at Beau Gordon Hair.

Taste of India – try them all

Did you know that Rosalie Village is home to not one, but three amazing Indian restaurants? Why not make a special night of it and explore them all. Start with samosas at Halims Indian Taj Restaurant, which boasts serving clientele from the India, Sri Lankan and Australian cricket teams! Move on to Tapri Proudly Desi for mains. It is the newest Indian on the block, with Tapri being hindi for a small roadside tea stall or tea shop where they serve tea and hot food. Their South Indian Dosa is a favourite, with the Tapri special dosas served in a matka (clay pot) for an insta-worthy dish! Next door at Old Monk Modern Indian you can enjoy the popular Bengali sweet delicacy, Rasmalai, or the house made Indian ice-cream, Kulfi, for dessert.

Bridal Party

Visit Rosalie Village with your Bridal party for wedding dress shopping at Babushka Ballerina, Brisbane’s go-to destination for modern and non-traditional bridal looks. Celebrate some successful shopping with brunch at Smoked Paprika, where you can choose from Zucchini fritters with chorizo, Shakshuka, Blueberry ricotta pancakes and more. Get ready for the big day with lash & brow packages for everyone at Made. By Jessika.

Lean & Green

Start your day right with a morning session at Witness the Fitness to get the blood flowing. Pop downstairs to create your own Acai bowl at Yo-Chi. You can personalise it with fresh fruit and nuts, chocolate drizzle, Biscoff spread and peanut butter! Stroll over to the Rosalie Garden Centre to choose a plant and for some advice to make your garden grow!

Picnic in the Park

You can pre-order a High Tea Box from Rosalie Gourmet Market and enjoy a lovely selection of sweet and savoury treats or stop into Francy’s Patisserie  to pick up fresh baked delights. Take your picnic to Rosalie’s playground, the leafy Gregory Park which is adjacent to the precinct at 128 Baroona Road, next to Milton State School.  This Brisbane City Council park offers picnic shelters, playground, basketball half court and plenty of room to run – the fully-fenced Gregory Park is an inner city oasis.  After burning off some energy in the park, pop back into the precinct for a treat at Cold Rock Ice Creamery.

Night with the crew

Hit up Rosalie Village with your crew and head to 5 Boroughs for your fix of New York style burgers, steaks and ribs. 5 Boroughs has live music every Sunday afternoon, and on Tuesdays at 7pm you can book in for some competitive socialising at the weekly Trivia Night. You can even try your hand at the Cocktail Making Classes on the 3rd Wednesday of every month starting at 7pm. Or head over to Rosalie’s newest bar, Patio by Range, and kick on with craft beer and good company.
