Sing like no one is listening. Love like you’ve never been hurt. Dance like nobody’s watching (so goes the saying).
Good sentiment, but we disagree. We think it should be DINE as if no one is watching. Because a delicious dinner beats an awkward Macarena any day of the week.
And that’s why we’re excited that chic city centre restaurant Chez Mal is offering a two course meal for two from their new autumn selection, plus a glass of Prosecco or a cocktail each.
Housed in a dramatic building that was once a Greek Orthodox church, Chez Mal is a very atmospheric dining spot.
With a glittering domed ceiling, vibrant murals and relaxed brasserie-style service, this cosmopolitan city centre venue is ideal for both chilled out meals and special occasions alike.
The kitchen team is led by Head Chef John Burns, who has helped to oversee an exciting new set of dishes for summer.
This deal lets you sample them seven days a week at various times.

TripAdvisor reviewers have shared plenty of praise for Chez Mal, including the following, edited for length:
‘...on arrival we were impressed with the decor at reception with dark velvet style and candles, was quite gothic however very bright down stairs with modern bright atmosphere and quite cosy. The food was very nice… the staff very pleasant and accommodating coming round regularly to make sure everyone receives good service, very impressed.’
‘The service we received from Bartek and the other staff here was first class… we will definitely go back.’
‘We had a lovely meal tonight at Chez Mal. Food was excellent, especially the chicken liver mousse, salmon fishcakes and the steak frite. Our Waitress, Julia, was a gem…’
Enjoy a chic meal at Chez Mal
Chez Mal offers the best of both worlds – the glamour of a dramatic venue with the relaxed experience of brasserie dining. So if you fancy an intimate meal with your other half, than snap up this offer for two courses and a drink each.
Given that Chez Mal is within handy distance of various theatres, this deal would also be perfect for a pre-theatre dinner. Whatever your reason, get ready to tuck into Chef Burns’s new seasonal menu while toasting the colder months with a cocktail or glass of fizz.
