Valentine’s Day Lunch @ Restaurant Two

Valentine’s Day has a special meaning for D & I. It’s not just a celebration of love, but also a celebration of the first step in our journey together. Well, 7 years ago on this very day, D cooked up a storm and proposed. My answer? I’m sure you could have guessed it by now.

The past year has been extra special but also busy because we have a new addition to the family.   We still love eating out occasionally, but the choices are limited to places that are child-friendly and also local to us.

We are thankful to have D’s family nearby and always willing to take care of the little man.   So, we managed to organise for the little man to spend the afternoon with them while we go out and celebrate.

After looking through many restaurant menus, D decided to take me to Restaurant Two. I have not been there before and it was the only Valentine’s menu he came across the meets my current dietary requirements.


Restaurant II is located in the corner of Edward and Alice Street, right opposite the Brisbane Botanical Gardens. It has a modern contemporary look and feel, which makes it a perfect location for special occasions.


I am glad to be able to enjoy this Valentine’s Day lunch in a quiet and relaxing manner 🙂

The food was great, but my favourites are the desserts. The grilled mango, passionfruit sorbet and coconut jelly was refreshing, while the chocolate fondant was rich and oozing out with chocolate. The mille-feuille took me by surprise with the extra light and crispy pastry and not-overly sweet vanilla custard.  Just perfect to end the meal 🙂
