Daily deal websites give you the chance to try those restaurants you never would at full price, they reveal restaurants you never knew existed (giving you the chance to come across hidden gems), but they also lure you in to spending money you wouldn’t have otherwise spent (attacking your inner bargain hunter, who just can’t resist a good deal).
The good thing about Casa Tua is how close it is – for me anyway, saves on the driving and the headache of finding parking. The deal was for a 3-course meal. Overall the food was average for me, the night was more of a well needed catch up with a friend, so despite the dishes, it was still an enjoyable evening. Something that requires mention is the creme brulee, I only managed a few mouthfuls and left the accompanying biscuit untouched. (To date, Lassiette is the best place I’ve had this favourite of mine, extremely smooth and creamy with just the right amount of vanilla. I haven’t been back for a while, so hopefully they haven’t changed. I’ll be sure to do a feature when I make my much needed visit!)
The Money It should be worth mentioning that the entire meal cost me and my friend $25 NZD each.
