Restaurants need customers early in the evening; and customers want great food at a great price. That's where First Table can provide a win-win.
First Table is Sydney's new way to book a bargain dinner deal, offering you 50 per cent off your meal simply by booking ahead. All you have to do to is book the restaurant's first available table for the night through First Table, pay a $10 booking fee, then you're ready to go.
So now to the good bit – choosing the restaurant. Try Mike McEnearney's warm and homey CBD restaurant No. 1 Bent Street; get some seriously good seafood with a view at Chiosco by Ormeggio; kick back with panoramic views and classic Sardinian fare at Pilu at Freshwater; and discover upmarket Vietnamese dining in Chippendale at Mekong.
Even Manu Fiedel is getting in on the act. His pop-up duck restaurant in Surry Hills, Duck in Duck Out, has now joined First Table.
More than 350 restaurants are participating and the deal is available for up to four diners.
Feel like giving it a whirl? Then use promo code TIMEOUT and you can get a further $5 off your first booking.
