Last minute Christmas Eve dinner reservations
Get into the Christmas spirit — and out of the stress of finding or cooking a Christmas meal — by letting a restaurant take the strain.
You might think it's too late and there's no room.
But if you have left it until now to organise something for friends or just a table for two on Christmas Eve (or the day itself), here's a list of some restaurants which, at time of writing, might still have space to pencil you in for some festive feasting.
FOR MEDITERRANEAN GASTRONOMY
The Knolls have put together four and five-course dinner menu offerings. Couple it with their seafront setting and things definitely look promising.

A place to kick back (and you don't even have to feel obliged to dress up) and enjoy tongue-in-cheek paraphernalia served up at this all-American diner.
Their Festive Feast feeds up to four, and if you're still wanting for more, there are plenty of sides options.

HEAD TO OZ
Stellar at 1-Altitude
Another skyscraping location but with very different meal options.
