Having a meal together lets people share news, opinions, and occasional romantic strands of spaghetti. Cosy up to a pal with today’s Groupon: $69 for any five tapas plates, a bottle of Penfolds wine and a dessert tasting plate for two people at BelleZain, Port Melbourne ($170 value).
BelleZain is an elegant beachfront restaurant that caters to fine dining fiends, trendy cocktail barflies, tapas lovers and folks seeking handsome sailors. Crack open a bottle of delicious Penfolds Bin 8 Red or White and let the good times roll, choosing any five tapas from the tapas menu to share with a friend. Popular choices include potato and parmesan arancini with roast pepper aioli; chargrilled chorizo with garlic flat bread; pork, duck and pistachio terrine with caperberries; or classic bruschetta with tomato, basil and bocconcini. Finish on a sweet note with a tasting plate of the chef’s daily desserts to share.
Set on the ground floor of the striking HM@S Lonsdale tower, BelleZain reaches new heights of stylish dining and impeccable service on the Port Melbourne foreshore. As well as the tantalising tapas plates, the talented team serve up a-la-carte delights for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with fabulous cocktails to get the party started. Groupies enjoy two cocktails of the week when they purchase dinner for two people on their next visit, and try to resist the urge to perform synchronised swimming moves in the harbour on the way home.
