Montecasino has, for many years, run its special night out for two campaign where it creates the ultimate night out for two people. So, whether it’s a romantic date or a night out with a friend, the promotion lets you explore the best of the complex with a massive saving.

This year, the campaign is back and it’s bigger and better than ever before! For R450, patrons who buy the special voucher booklet get a variety of meals, drinks, entertainment and movies valued at over R800 – a R350 saving!

I decided to try out the promotion for myself and see if it’s really worth the hype. Dinner options include a main course and dessert for two at one of four restaurants – Portugalo, La Rose Mexican Grille & Tequileria, Kai Thai or Verdiccio. For dinner, I decided to have dinner at one of the complex’s newest restaurants PortuGalo. With a choice of either baby chicken piri-piri, pork chops, rump espetada; or seafood cataplana, and poached pears, custard tartlets or chocolate mousse for dessert, the options were varied and impressive. I went for the baby chicken piri-piri and the chocolate mousse options and was really impressed with the flavour of both dishes.

if you’re heading out to a different restaurant, you can enjoy either crispy duck, green curry, or fish salad and either deep-fried ice cream or banana fritters for dessert at Kai Thai, grill-baked chicken, mexican skirt steak, vegetarian burritos, or deep-fried hake, and churros and ice-cream for dessert at La Rosa or a grilled rump, prawn or mediterranean pasta, or gorgonzola veal, and cannolis, malva pudding, or crème brulee for dessert at Verdiccio.

I then used my 2D movie vouchers to check out one of the new blockbusters on the cinema circuit right now. For some reason I opted to watch The House With The Clock In The Walls starring Jack Black. Honestly, the movie was one of the worst I have seen this year but luckily the exquisite Movies@Montecasino complex is world-class and made the viewing experience that much better.

After the movie, I headed out for a quick game of Lazer Tag with my entertainment voucher. This voucher offers patrons either a round of Lazer Tag or a game of Ten-Pin bowling which is a lot of fun – especially if you haven’t done both activities in a while.

To end the night off, I went to one of my favourite new spots at Montecasino – the Texan Wing Bar. With an epic rooftop view of the casino, I used my drinks voucher at this restaurant. While I could have chosen a bottle of wine to share with my significant other, we opted for a shot of tequila and a cocktail each. The bar offers an array of favourites like a Mojito, Long Island Ice Tea, Strawberry Daiquiri and a whole lot more – with some even offered as virgin options. Other areas to use the drinks voucher includes the Latin American fusion Lima Tapas Bar, 3Sixty Liquid Lounge, or on the casino floor.

What I liked about this incredible deal is that despite the massive savings, Montecasino refused to water down the experience. Some expensive, delicious dishes are available, a variety of drink options and an incredible variety of entertainment options that, honestly, makes for the perfect night out.

Night out for Two vouchers can be purchased until 10 November and redeemed until 30 November 2018, from the Montecasino Box Office, the Guest Relations Desk, or Mobile Kiosk, and all offers can be redeemed by presenting the respective voucher at the participating outlet. Vouchers can be redeemed on different days. The offers are valid throughout the promotion period, seven days a week, excluding public holidays.

This is one promotion you don’t want to miss!
