Dining in amazing restaurants doesn’t have to cost the earth. Here are our top 6 secret’s for saving money in fine dining restaurants.
Book lunch specials
For example the Gordon Ramsay lunch special in London is more than 50% off the near identical meal at dinner.
Never go degustation if you can help it
Just order the same dishes a la carte and share it with your dining mate. Usually works out to be 30% cheaper and you get to swap out dishes from the degustation you might not like.
If your are going with your partner, you can share a wine match
Often they can cost more than $100, and its too much wine anyway, just split it.
Say its your anniversary or birthday
Fancy restaurants often offer you a free dessert.
Never ever order anything without checking the price
Especially the champagne to start or coffee to end. A cup of tea at vue de monde in Melbourne is $20.
Special deals and vouchers
Dimmi has specials as well as the Entertainment Cards/Books, American Express often have deals too. But restaurants on Groupon are often subpar anyway.
