Entertainment™ Member Testimonials
Hear what some of our Members have to say about the Entertainment™ Membership and why they love it!
“The Entertainment Book is such a great way to try new restaurants. It’s also a great opportunity to help community organisations. It’s been a big year for Entertainment, with the Digital Memberships as well – just when I didn’t think it could get any better!”
“The Entertainment Digital Membership is so convenient because I have it with me all the time, whenever I go to a restaurant or café. It also shows new updated offers, and I can clearly see my savings as I go, taking out the guesswork.”
“The Entertainment Book is great value for such a low price there is a lot of savings I get back instantly, it more than outweighs the original price. There is something for everyone. I purchase the Book every year and have bought the Book as gifts for family members as well. Couldn’t live without it.”
“I love everything about my Entertainment Book from supporting my local football club when purchasing it, to the endless variety of venues to dine out, and spoiling my kids with different activities to try!”
Entertainment™ Membership Merchants
“ My flagship restaurant ezard first featured in the 2009 Edition of the Entertainment™ Book. My initial decision to join the program was driven by a desire to expand upon our traditional customer base. During those first two years we did indeed welcome a wide range of guests with Entertainment™ Cards to the restaurant. However we were unsure if we were seeing a marked improvement of guest numbers, and I had concerns that the guests brought to the restaurant by the Entertainment™ Book were deal-driven and not necessarily likely to become repeat clients.
We decided to test these concerns in 2011 by declining inclusion in the Book. Since re-joining in 2012 we have enjoyed an increase in reservations, putting paid to the theory that these guests were of less potential value than our established customer base. This and the excellent support and partnership of our Business Development Manager, means I have no hesitation in recommending the Entertainment™ Book to other restaurateurs. ”

“This will be our eighth year of participation in the Entertainment™ Book. Recently we worked with the staff at Entertainment™ on engineering the layout of our pages in the Book. Changing the type of offer, as well as including a new menu and photograph, has dramatically changed the results we are seeing from the program. Entertainment™ Members are now ordering more dishes from our menu, and the expectation of the venue is more in line with the type of restaurant we are. The quality of customer being introduced, along with the average spend per customer, is now much higher. We are very satisfied with the results so far and look forward to seeing this continue.”
Pilu at Freshwater, Freshwater, Sydney
“This year we won the Gold Award, placing us in the Entertainment™ Hall of Fame, which has cemented our belief that the Entertainment™ Program works for us. We take the time to look after our customers, and always try to exceed their expectations. If we give them the best experience possible once they’ve been introduced, then we know they will come back and tell other people about their experience. Initially, we must say, our staff was quite sceptical and negative. However the majority of the Entertainment™ Program members have changed their opinions. We find them to be foodies – they are appreciative of fine food and service and are quite adventurous – they will try new things! ”
