The Spotted Cow

Pairing classic pub grub with craft ales and an impressive range of whisky, rum and gin, The Spotted Cow is definitely delivering on the drinks front. Add in its lush garden seating and cool mural and you've got yourself a top alfresco spot.


Lido is hands down one of the quirkiest restaurants in the city. Located metres away from an outdoor swimming pool, the award-winning spot offers guests the opportunity to take a quick dip before dining on wholesome breakfasts and tapas-style dishes, with plenty of vino to wash it all down. 

Steak of the Art

A place where paintings and fine cuts come together, Steak of the Art houses a small outdoor seating area at the front of their restaurant. Take a break from gawking at impressive designs to munch on some ribeye, pork shoulder or a chestnut loaf for the non-meat eaters.
