Melbourne Food and Wine Festival is back with another huge program for 2018. More than 300 events are planned and Restaurant Express, supported by OpenTable, is one of the highlights.

Between March 16 and 25, 80 of the city's best restaurants are offering two courses of lunch and a glass of matched wine for $40. It's easy to take advantage of this incredible deal – just book a restaurant with us below, making sure to specify a lunchtime slot (12pm–3pm) between Monday and Thursday.
