Kick off the perfect girls weekend with a luxuriously long ladies lunch at Ostro. Featuring a fresh spring menu and as always, the best views in town. Grab your girls – Ostro’s giving you and three friends a chance to attend this Saturday’s soirée. 

Ostro has our hearts: who can resist Josh Emmett’s kitchen wizardry, a killer cocktail lineup, ever-flowing bubbles and the best atmosphere, set against panoramic harbour views? The new season’s arrival has brought with it a fresh new menu to the Ostro table, guaranteed to inject every dining experience with spring fever.

This week, Ostro’s given us even more to love with the launch of a weekly prix fixe long lunch just for the ladies. Starting this Saturday, 14 October, the Ladies Day Out Menu treats you and your best babes to three long courses of Josh Emmett and Daniel Na’s finest spring concoctions. Featuring vege-based savories like roasted beetroot with baked Puhoi Valley goat’s cheese and a splash of sherry, and favourites from land and sea like buttery cuttlefish ink risotto or a crispy chicken terrine, this menu wows down to the last bite of chocolate tart. At just $40, this luxe lunch features champagne specials as well, so treat your table to a bottle of bubbles for $100. To top things off, resident DJ Phoebe Falconer is fresh in from LA, sweetening the deal by spinning the celebratory vibes every week.

When celebrations are in order, this is your go to. Hosting the Ladies Day Out every Saturday from 12-3 pm, this is the perfect way to celebrate birthday soirees, pamper brides-to-be or simply raise a glass to the melting of winter’s chill. And with the rotating menu refreshing every two weeks, you won’t need to make excuses to make this lunch part of your weekend ritual!
