Father’s Day is fast approaching and if you’re yet to plan something special for dear old dad, let this handy guide steer you in the right direction. From cool and casual to first-class and fancy, The Star offers a range of options, whatever flavour you favour.
Garden Kitchen & Bar

The meaty meal is sure to be a hit with dads young and old and includes a glass of beer, winning! Available from 12:00–4:00 pm.
If your old man is more of a steak and veg kind of guy, knock his socks off with a perfectly cooked 500-gram grass-fed scotch fillet with roast potato, broccoli, and a side of garlic focaccia washed down with an ice-cold Italian lager at Cucina Vivo. You’ll definitely be in the running for favourite after that. The lunch sitting is available from 12:00–3:00 pm and dinner from 5:30–9:00 pm.
