A romantic night out has to include a great meal, and there’s plenty of awesome restaurants for date nights in Penrith.

Here’s our top five…

5. Chechos (Woodriff Street, Penrith)

Kick-off with a couple of cocktails at this modern Mexican restaurant, which continues to kick goals with its delicious food and drink menu.

With a great atmosphere, particularly on weekends, and late-night trading, Chechos is a great option to consider for a kid-free date night in Penrith.

And it’s in such a great location – you can have some pre or post drinks at nearby bars like Theo’s, Mr Watkins or AG.

4. Lakeside Restaurant (Penrith Lakes)

Often forgotten about because it sits outside of the CBD and typical restaurant areas, Lakeside provides a beautiful setting for a romantic dinner without the kids.

Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday for dinner – and at other times for breakfast, brunch and lunch – Lakeside has a sensational range of mains, pastas and desserts to try.

Vince and his team will look after you and ensure your date night is a success.

3. Osso (Panthers)

If you know date night is going to kick on to a few drinks afterwards, Panthers is the place to go – especially with a quality restaurant like Osso in the building.

Delicious steaks, even more delicious ribs… all in a great setting.

Kick-off with some small plates and then dive into the steaks – ask the helpful staff for a recommendation.

2. Avli (Cranebrook)

A little bit of Greece awaits just a couple of kilometres outside of Penrith.

Avli is a hidden gem, sitting in an historic church that has been refurbished to house the amazing restaurant.

If you’ve never been before, jump into one of the set menus – you can’t go wrong. With a great setting, and indoor and outdoor dining available, Avli should definitely be on your list.

1. The Union (High St, Penrith)

The Union has stood the test of time after opening in Penrith a few years ago, and continues to deliver outstanding tapas food and a tremendous atmosphere upstairs on High Street.

Plus with a small bar below, you can grab a drink before or after your date to make it a complete night out.

The Union has some amazing share dishes, but you can’t go pass the lamb cigars (hopefully they’re on the specials board!), the paella and the fried haloumi.
