Written by Lizzie Macaulay

If you’re wondering what to do with that someone special this Valentine’s Day, look no further than Banksia Seafood and Grill.

With their signature 4-course dinner experience, there’s never been a better opportunity to unwind and reconnect over your shared love of good food.

Nothing shows the one you love how much you care more than the time spent enjoying a top-quality meal together in a quiet corner of one of the Wide Bay’s most popular dining experiences.

Not only will you savour the delectable flavours of the Wide Bay’s best cocktails in a deeply romantic setting, you’ll also be sampling and supporting the region’s exquisite fresh produce.

From the beef to the beetroot, the scallops to the sweet potato, the emphasis is always on fresh, local food that is bursting with flavour.

While you’re there, you should take the time to sample the cocktail our readers recently voted ‘best in the Bay’ – The French Orchard.

The perfect combination of fruity and creamy, The French Orchard is sure to set the tone for an exciting, delicious meal that is as much a feast for the eyes as the tastebuds.

You’ll feel totally at home with Banksia’s friendly staff, comfortable seating and music that invites you to completely let go, relax and enjoy.

“We’ve made a point of designing a venue that appeals to Fraser Coast locals, mixing the perfect relaxed fine dining experience with our beach side location,” co-owner Aleeca Waterman said. “We want you to feel at home and part of the family when you come through our doors.”

“We are so looking forward to welcoming our loved-up guests through the doors this month and watch them enjoy everything we’ve worked so hard to bring together.”
