It is hard to believe that it has been ten years since we first opened our doors at Vatel.

Over the years we have enjoyed your patronage and friendship, first at 374 Lyons Road Russell Lea, and now at 188 Lyons Road Drummoyne.

For the occasion I have prepared a three course meal for $70.00 per person.
There will also be live entertainment with Viva the Duo with Corinne Andrews.

Looking forward to your company on Friday 24 October for a very special night!

Dinner will be served from 7:30 pm.
