The best NYE eats to try at these fancy AF places


Stumbling out of a bar is so last year. Ring in 2024 with a fine-dining feast at one of these boujee restaurants.

  • 1908 Cronulla Social Restaurant & Cocktail Bar

    Cronulla, Sydney, New South Wales

    It might be housed in a former church from the 1900s, but New Year’s Eve at this ivy-clad restaurant will be anything but austere with a pumping DJ and epic cocktails (try the festive Champagne for Mixologists which blends Veuve Clicquot with grapefruit, cucumber, and tea). Plus, while the restaurant is usually limited to set menus, you’ll get no-holds-barred access to the full à la carte menu – a love letter to the coast, with inventive cuisine that runs the gamut from the Caribbean to coastal Mediterranean.

  • Miyako Japanese Cuisine & Teppanyaki

    Southbank, Melbourne, Victoria

    While crowds might be fighting for blanket space on the banks of the Yarra River, you can enjoy the New Year’s Eve fireworks in comfort, sprawling out on Miyako’s plush balcony. Plus, you’ll get to dine on artful seafood-heavy Japanese like kombu clam soup or lobster tail, often grilled theatrically before you.

  • Garcon Bleu at Sofitel Adelaide

    Adelaide CBD, Adelaide, South Australia

    Feel like a flashy New Year’s is out of the question if you’ve got little ones? Garçon Bleu, housed in the schmick Sofitel Hotel, has other ideas. Their special family feast starts from a kid-friendly 5:30pm and features a drool-worthy three-course French menu (think filet de bœuf with pomme fondant or passionfruit gâteau garnished with crystallised coffee). Plus, kids four and under eat free. Win!

    Perth CBD, Perth, Western Australia

    Feel (literally) on top of the world in this revolving restaurant that redefines panoramic views. As you watch the glittering Perth skyline and Swan River pan through the floor-to-ceiling windows like a rolling movie, you’ll dine on a posh five-course feast, featuring dishes like line-caught market fish with pancetta and burnt-onion broth, or Japanese-inspired local Wagyu beef, paired with Margaret River wines.

    Brisbane CBD, Brisbane, Queensland

    Bring on 2024 with a literal bang as fireworks go off all around you from your prime spot on the banks of the Brisbane River – all while you sip Aperol spritz and nibble at an Instagrammable grazing station in between woodfired pizzas and seafood. Feeling extra… well, extra? Book the premium package for bottomless flutes of Moët & Chandon to toast the new year in style.
