TheFork Festival is back with six weeks of dining offers to help support the hospitality industry and get diners back to restaurants

This week, TheFork, Australia’s #1 restaurant booking app, launches TheFork Festival – a six-week program of delicious dining experiences. Over the six-week festival, TheFork will inspire Australians to return to the dining scene, encouraging the discovery of new restaurants, as well as reminding its network of diners to support local favourites. 

With over 150 participating restaurants across the country, from fine dining favourites, local gems through to neighbourhood cafés, TheFork Festival brings together an exciting mix of special dining offers to encourage eating out, including up to 50% off the bill, specially curated menus and one-off deals.  

Now in its third year, the Festival provides diners the perfect opportunity to tick some restaurants off their wish list, without hurting the bank. And, with TheFork Festival’s support, restaurants can use these special deals to help fill quieter seatings throughout the week and attract new customers. 

Speaking about the festival, Gary Burrows, TheFork Australia Country Manager, said: “TheFork Festival encourages Australian diners to really explore the amazing array of restaurants in their cities. Our data shows that 97% of customers who book during TheFork Festival are dining at a restaurant for the first time – so we are introducing hundreds of diners to new restaurants each year.” 

Restaurants to watch out for during TheFork Festival include deVine, one of Sydney’s leading wine bars; Lezzet, serving up indulgent plates of Turkish favourites in Melbourne; and Pasture of Balmoral, a waterfront café on beautiful Balmoral Beach. 

The full list of participating restaurants is available on TheFork’s app and website. 

“We know that TheFork Festival is even more important this year, both reminding diners of what’s out there and driving new customers to restaurants when they need them. We hope to help eliminate as many empty seats across Australian restaurants as we can,” says Gary Burrows. 

TheFork Festival is available when you book from February 15–28 March via TheFork App or website, Look out for TheFork Festival offers when making a reservation. All offers are available until booked out, so diners are encouraged to get in quickly.
