There’s something pretty darn clever about bringing your own bottle of plonk to an evening out. Affordable, crafty and catered to your preferences in wine - perfect! Add to that an amazing meal and you have a truly special night out on the cheap.

Canton Cafe reviewed by Kerri R.

Everyone raves about Canton Cafe, and fair enough! The food is incredible and it’s BYO. The menu is large (try the lemon chicken, but you really can’t go wrong) and looks expensive, but the plates are huge and you really only need one per two people... that and the lazy susans on the table make this a great place for a big group. The staff were very accommodating about my food allergy, and we were served very quickly after ordering. Canton Cafe definitely lives up to the hype.

Jaan Turkish Cafe & Takeaway reviewed by Hannah C.

Went for dinner here last night and what an incredible hidden away beauty! Amazing views from the upstairs area and wonderful atmosphere, wait staff were excellent. Had the mezze platter, fish of the day and Mediterranean pizza. All was delicious (especially the sun dried tomato hummus YUM!) and the little extra details in each meal made for top marks! Had a delay with the pizza but it was well worth the wait! The staff were soooo apologetic about the delay and we received a complimentary dessert. What incredible goodwill! Blown away, not enough businesses appreciate their customers in such a way anymore. Will definitely be back for seconds!

Thai Me Up reviewed by Richie B.

Thai Me Up is the perfect spot for a BYO group meal. The staff are very accommodating, and were more than happy to seat our group of 10 (all drinking wine). Great set meal prices for groups, tasty food.

Covo Restaurant Cafe & Bar CBD reviewed by Elise C.

Covo is well known for its amazing pastas and pizzas and what more their $10 lunch specials everyday! Covo is a tiny Italian space but brims with the flavor of Italy! Bookings in advance are necessary to dine in a small place like this! Staff are always friendly and the food never disappoints. Perfect for a small date! :)
