Exceptional value is on the cards once again at Montecasino, with the return of the much-loved Night Out For 2 package of meals, drinks, entertainment and movies. 

Valued at R800, the experience is available at the price of R450, offering the opportunity to enjoy a night – or day – out to celebrate, impress a date, or just enjoy a well-deserved treat.

Dinner options include a main course and dessert for two at either Kai Thai Restaurant, the new PortuGalo authentic Portuguese restaurant on the Piazza, La Rosa Mexican Grille and Tequileria, or Verdicchio, an Italian restaurant.

On the menu at Kai Thai is crispy duck, green curry, or fish salad and either deep-fried ice cream or Banana fritters for dessert. 

PortuGalo’s choices are baby chicken piri-piri, pork chops, rump espetada; or seafood cataplana, and poached pears, custard tartlets, or chocolate mousse for dessert. 

Verdicchios’ offering is grilled rump, prawn or Mediterranean pasta, or gorgonzola veal, and cannolis, malva pudding, or crème brulee for dessert.

Being a Mexican food fiend, I chose La Rosa Mexican Grille and Tequileria. 

Their options include oven-baked half chicken, grilled and basted with their special salsa Arbol served with prawns and spicy rice; Mexican skirt steak with red onions and jalapeno skewers made with beef marinade, served on top of fajita veg, drizzled with chipotle mayo and cilantro and habanero mayo, with a side of Mexican patatas, red onion, avocado and cherry tomato salad; vegetarian burritos, or Deep-fried hake, grilled prawns accompanied with a spicy rice. 

For dessert, churros, churros, churros with vanilla ice cream!

The drink options at 3Sixty, Texan Wing Bar, Lima Tapas Bar, or the Casino floor range from exotic Mirari gin and other delicious and colourful cocktails, Olmeca shooters, a grapefruit and craft tonic mocktail or a Bulldog gin cocktail with grapefruit juice and tonic, shaken and strained at Lima, and lovely local wines, to ice cold favourite beers, ciders, or soft drinks, and more.

Get your entertainment fix from two movie tickets to a 2D movie of your choice at one of [email protected]’s 15 state-of-the-art cinemas, plus some action-packed fun at either The Magic Company’s 10-pin bowling or an adrenalin-filled laser-tag game at the Laser Zone. 

I suggest arriving early, so you aren’t pushed for time as the Magic Company closes at 10:30pm, as do most restaurants in Montecasino - and the last movie slot is 8pm.
