Arguably the foundation of all great first dates, Libertine in Paddington have taken the classic combo to the next level, offering a special Monday night movie deal exclusive to Style readers.
Enjoy a four course shared banquet at Libertine with a complimentary Palace Cinema movie ticket for $35 per person in the historic Paddington Barracks building on Petrie Terrace.
The French-Vietnamese fusion restaurant’s heritage listed dining room is jaw-dropping, with locally designed recycled timber furniture, decadent wallpapers and glistening chandeliers.
Request the Monday deal, order from their extensive wine list and enjoy the relaxed ambience until the first of four dishes is placed in the centre of the table to progressively graze from.
Each week Libertine mixes up the Monday deal, but here are Style’s menu picks that may appear in the banquet:
The eight-spice popcorn chicken with kimchi mayo works a treat. Served in a Chinese takeaway container on its side, the use of chopsticks stops your pre-emotive cinema style handful grab.
The stand out main course of our Monday deal was the pork belly with carrot puree and spice honey glaze, which went beautifully with a glass of red.
The decadent deconstructed snickers dessert is not on the set menu but definitely deserves a mention, oozing with chocolate goodness. So yum!
The progressive and customisable serving style of Libertine’s banquet style movie deal leaves you satisfied, rather than overfed. Once you’ve finished with the meal, you’ll have the option of walking across to the Palace Cinemas at the Barracks or to continue chatting over a drink or two. The tickets are valid for up to three months from the date of your dinner, so choose to savour the night as you wish.
