Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!  Oi, oi, OI!  Yes, the Australian Open is here from 18-31 January 2016 and if you're a tennis and food lover then you'll be stoked to hear about the dining deals that are on offer at Southgate restaurants.

There are many dining deals on offer and here are our picks:

Tutto Bene's Granchio Risotto - spanner crab risotto with tomato and chilli  

'Ciao! Ciao!' express lunch menu from Tutto Bene

In a rush to get to your match?  Then Tutto Bene's 'Ciao! Ciao!' two course pre-tennis lunches are served within 45 minutes.  The express lunch is $44 per person (minimum two people), with vegetarian and gluten free options available.  Have a gander of our review of Tutto Bene.

'The Waterslide Bar Grass Court'  

We love the old world glamour of the Waterslide Bar (see our review here) and to celebrate the Australian Open, the Waterslide Bar's balcony, which has gorgeous views of the Yarra, will be transformed into ‘The Waterslide Bar Grass Court'.  The official Australian Open beer Heineken available on tap with $10 pints and $5 pots. Inside, vintage tennis matches will play during daytime trade with selected Australian Open matches in the evenings.

Tennis-goers can add a touch of glamour by arriving and leaving the tennis in style by WaterTaxi!  Purchase your ticket from the boat or pre-purchase a return WaterTaxi ticket via selected Southgate restaurants.  The WaterTaxi departs from the lower promenade and takes you directly to Rod Laver Arena.
