Charcuterie boards. Sliced meats. Cured meats. Cold meats. We’ve scouted out Brisbane’s very best so all you need to do is show up and eat!
This French restaurant combines a French-inspired menu with traditional French techniques. So yeah, it’s pretty French. It’s also very comfy and attractive (the bar is a swirling vortex of marble), and the charcuterie rules. Cured meats, black pudding, spicy salami, pork belly, lamb rib… oh yes. We think it goes down a treat with a glass of Petits Detours Pinot Noir, because it’s important to get a little fancy every now and then. Find out more
“Probably one of the best views of the city at night! Nice place to stop and have a drink in the evening. Staff are always great.” – MountKer
Let’s just get it out the way; this sprawling riverside restaurant technically serves antipasti, rather than charcuterie. The differences are negligible, however, and you certainly won’t be focussing on them when you’re devouring this sumptuous bounty of cured meats, cheese, olives and pane bread. Popolo is Italian at its tastiest, so order up some Sangiovese and have a yourself a festino. Find out more

With seven taps and 65 different bottles, Bitter Suite is an exceptionally beery place. It’s also a wonder on the charcuterie front, with a board containing wild boar sausage, nduja, wagyu pastrami and house parfait, beetroot relish and bread. And to drink, you ask? Well, we’d suggest a crisp bottle of Vale lager. Perfect to sip on while you laze about enjoying the rustic ambience. Find out more
“The tapas were excellent. Good value, great atmosphere, friendly staff, perfect for a group catch up after work.” – HAMBOB
Blackbird is one of the coolest bars around (it’s got leather couches on its open-air patio- perfect for lounging), but in a refreshingly relaxed and unpretentious way. More importantly, it’s packing a full charcuterie board, spiced up with pickles, quince romesco and a fresh baguette. Go for an Old Cuban off the extensive cocktail menu to wash it down; it’s a citrusy delight. Find out more
“Brilliant! Couldn’t get any better. It was fantastic food and the service was fast and efficient. Extremely impressed.” – Antonella
Based in a grand old converted warehouse, e’cco’s sleek, modern look belies the century of history hidden within its walls. The talented chefs use nothing but the finest produce, so their charcuterie game is very strong indeed. Especially the ‘spreadable chorizo’, which was certainly a pleasant surprise to us. We’d recommend plenty of chardonnay to help you overcome the shock of such a wild concept. Find out more
