Here are some of our top restaurant picks to set the scene and create a little bit of romance. Don’t forget to book in ahead of time to reserve your table.

Now it’s time to end the night on a high - grab yourselves a choc top for dessert and head on in to view one of these new releases:

  • Baby Teeth: (July 23) - Teenager Milla falls in love with a small-time drug dealer Moses, and it’s her protective parents’ worst nightmare.

  • Mulan: (August 20) - When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honoured warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father.

  • The Broken Hearts Gallery: (August 6) - The Broken Hearts Gallery follows the always unique Lucy, a 20-something art gallery assistant living in New York City, who also happens to be an emotional hoarder.
