Ready, Set, GO!

readysetgoYou’ll need to race to book in time for our fantabulous MELBOURNE CUP Gourmet Buffet Lunch on Tuesday 7 November at Fiction!  At just $95 a head it’s the best value in town.  And with a 12 pm start, you’ll have hours to eat, drink and be very, very merry.

If you went to our last still-talked about Melbourne Cup Gourmet Buffet Lunch at Fiction, you’ll know what a blast it was. Fillies, frocks, fancy footwear, fascinators, fun, guys – and a welcoming glass of fizz to get those taste buds primed for feasting.

And what feasting it was!  A plethora of prawns and succulent oysters led the way to mouth-watering roasts and so many more culinary delights that you could put on weight just thinking about them.


This year

This year’s bash will be bigger and better – if that’s even possible to imagine. You’ll be greeted with a welcoming glass of premium sparkling or beer on arrival, while you meet up with your party and get ready for an afternoon of unrivalled revelry. Feast on a delectable array of seafood, yummy roasts, gourmet salads, and a host of other hot options and decadent desserts to tempt your tastebuds. Our speedy ordering service will keep your champagne, wine, beer or other drinks flowing to quench your thirst and keep the laughs coming. Just make sure you wear something that doesn’t restrict your waistline!


The lucky door

Think Lucky Door prizes.  Are you still wondering which is the lucky door?  Seriously, getting prizes for just being there is like the icing on the cake. Imagine if there were lucky door prizes at your work!  Would anyone ever take a sickie?

Prize looks

While we’re on the subject of prizes, best-dressed male and best-dressed female will each score a prize.  So, all you fillies, deck yourselves out in your fave fancy frocks, step into some swish stilettos, whip up some fascinating head gear and you could be leading the parade.

And blokes – no t-shirts, shorts and Blundstones if you want to knock our judges out with your savvy fashion know-how, and have the girls jockeying for a position at your table.  It’s time to go more metrosexual than retrosexual.  If you’re not sure what that means, ask your girlfriend, best buddy or a sales guy at a smart casual menswear store.

Dressing up for a special event makes the event even more special. You’ll look much better in your selfies, too!  So give it a whirl and who knows, you could be adding another prize to your bag of loot.


They’re off and racing…

No Melbourne Cup gourmet lunch would be complete without sweeps and Fiction know how to run the best.  And just when you thought it couldn’t get any more exciting, along come Mystery Bets!  Time to break open that piggy-bank…

Of course, to keep things rolling along and you dancing in the aisles, there’s live entertainment throughout. That’s right – it’s the real deal. 

Fashion parades, photo booths – it gets better and better.  Fiction pulls out all stops to make this an absolutely knock-out event for you.

You’d be hard pressed to find anything that comes even close to a Fiction Melbourne Cup Gourmet Buffet Lunch. And at just $95 a head, it’s a no brainer.  Book ASAP to make sure you don’t miss out!  Places are strictly limited to 300.
