Citibank Dining Program Restaurants in Sydney

A guide to all the Citibank Dining Program restaurants in Sydney.
Because dinner should always come with free wine.

There’s something to be said about receiving alcohol for free and that something is “Yes, please”.

Citibank knows this. That's why they introduced their Citibank Dining Program, where you'll get a free bottle of wine just for using your Citibank or Citi card to pay for dinner. It’s that simple.

So where will you be dining tonight?

Let us inspire (read: sway) you with a sweet and free tipple from these fine restaurants. This content is current as of 20 August 2015 and is subject to change. The most up-to-date details of Citibank Dining Program partner restaurants can be found on the Citibank Dining site.

The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room, George St

Your free wine is: an Under and Over Pinot Gris 2014 or a McW 480 Hilltops Shiraz.

Try the… duck fat fish and chips with mushy peas, mint and gherkin mayo ($26).

It’s city location makes The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room the ideal place for a post work drink-that-turns-into-dinner. As the name suggests, oysters are the go here and the sommelier will match your wine accordingly. Any oyster aficionado will tell you it’s a little hard to fill up on them completely, so treat it as a pre-dinner course before you get to the main event. Pro tip: head along to $1 oyster hour every Wednesday at 6pm.

Yama Japanese Cafe Restaurant, QVB

Your free wine is: a Tightrope Walker Chardonnay 2012 or an Evans & Tate Metricup Cabernet Merlot 2012.

Try the… loose leaf teas and the rest will follow.

Right in the heart of the QVB is Yama Japanese, a fusion of traditional and contemporary Japanese dining. Relax after a days shopping with a loose leaf tea from their extensive collection and a scrumptious cake. Or three. We’re not judging.

@ Bangkok, Capitol Square

Your free wine is: an Under and Over Pinot Gris 2014 or a McW 660 Reserve Tumbarumba Pinot Noir..

The idea behind @ Bangkok is fairly straightforward. It’s "Thai food for Thai people", right in the middle of Thaitown (yes, that’s a place – just next door to Chinatown in Haymarket). If you want authentic Thai cuisine without the hassle of jumping on a plane, this is the place to go.

What you need to know

Address: Shop G11, Capitol Square, Sydney

Opening hours: Sunday to Monday 11:30am-4:30pm, 5:30pm-2am, Friday and Saturday 11:30am-4:30pm, 5:30pm-4am

Phone number: (02) 9211 5232

The Meat & Wine Co., Circular Quay

Your free wine is: a McWilliams Appellation Sauvignon Blanc 2013 or a McW 660 'Appellation' Cabernet Sauvignon.

Try the… Monte Grain Select (grain-fed 120 days) Fillet Steak ($39).

The name pretty much gives it all away. These guys do meat – and wine – really, really well. Their steak list alone stretches into the double digits and that’s before you get to the rest of the meat. What the name doesn’t give away is the spectacular views over Circular Quay, which makes it ideal for an early sunset drink that stretches on into dinner.

What you need to know

Address: Shop 12, Lobby, InterContinental Sydney, 117 Macquarie St, Sydney

Opening hours: Sunday to Thursday 12pm-10pm, Friday and Saturday 12pm-11pm

Cafe del Mar, Cockle Bay Wharf

Your free wine is: a McW Alternis 1913 Vermentino or Partisan By Jove Temperanillo

Try the... Sauteed spanner crab, linguine, zucchini flowers and bottarga ($38).

It's like a little slice of Ibiza smack bang in the heart of Sydney. The enormous deck – with sun lounges and billowing sails – is one of the best places in Sydney to watch the sun set (which is what it was designed for, after all). Enjoy a Mediterranean feast in the early hours of the evening and while away the later hours with cocktails and Cafe del Mar's world-famous DJs.

What you need to know

Address: 35 Wheat Rd, Rooftop Terrace, Cockle Bay Wharf

Opening hours: Monday to Saturday 12pm–12am, Sunday 12pm–10pm
