Who says your better half can't be a juicy steak or a sumptuously cheesy pizza? At this eatery, food always takes the top spot.

Located in Leithfield, Better Half enjoys a prime location away from the hustle and bustle. With a distinct country vibe, their enormous restaurant gives you all the space you could ever desire to stretch out and relax. Beautifully homey with that rustic-pub vibe, every diner is made to feel right at home. And with a patio bathed in sunshine, breakfast, lunch and dinner can be an outdoorsy, alfresco affair.

As the rooster crows, the mouth-watering smells of French toast and fried bacon waft around your newfound love. Welcome the day with a round of bacon and eggs on ciabatta or their Mexican-inspired corn fritters with plenty of salsa, sour cream and smoky bourbon. As we move closer to the afternoon, indulge your inner cheat-day-fiend with one of their juicy burgers. The brisket and pork belly burger are specially 'oozy' whilst the open steak sandwich is a cheesy, meaty delight. And for those who haven't scheduled an afternoon nap, a salad or seafood chowder should satiate you nicely.

And just like that, it's the end of the day! Make it an evening to remember with their crispy pizzas, topped with anything from spiced lamb to smoked salmon and fresh veggies. Alternatively, prepare your napkin for the St Louis pork ribs, the slow-braised beef cheek that's submerged in a red wine jus or the beer-battered Chatham Island cod. Where all food is love at first sight, everyone is falling head over heels for Better Half.
