5.    Take her out for lunch at Skygate Dining

Remember, no one likes to cook or clean up on their special day, so why not take the taste buds on tour to Skygate Dining.

Taste Tokyo with a family-meal out at the Sushi Station. With a selection of hot and cold dishes, Sushi Station promises a relaxed, family-friendly dining experience. 

If you’ve got burgers on the mind, Burger Urge, flips its popular patties just outside DFOs doors. It must be noted, these finger licking burgers come with a warning – they’re dangerously good. 

For something tasty to take away, pop by Nautilus Seafood Emporium & Grill, where you can pick up fresh whole fish, sashimi, prawns and fresh oysters to name a few. Serving suggestion – swing by Dan Murphy’s for a chilled, crisp white wine and have yourself a perfect afternoon involving pinot grigio and prawns.

What will she find? Brands like Mimco, Ralph Lauren and Seed to name a few.
