  • Pinocchio’s Restaurant

    Canberra Restaurants

    If you are looking for truly cosy restaurant that’s comfortable and has eclectic décor than you can’t go passed Pinocchio’s. Kim and I recently enjoyed a family get together on a cold winter’s night. It’s no surprise that the menu is Italian. This family owned business has been operating for 23 years. The service is excellent and it is refreshing...

  • The Tryst

    Canberra Restaurants

    Thirty years ago, Canberra had only two or three good restaurants. With the explosion in restaurant numbers and quality in recent years, there now is an endless choice. Several good restaurants are to be found in the inner south suburb of Manuka – and that is where this tip leads us. We had eaten previously at The Tryst and had thoroughly enjoyed...

  • Moon Rock Café

    Canberra Restaurants

    If as I suggest (make that highly recommend) you follow my “Off The Beaten Path” tips and take the Cotter Loop/Tourist Drive 5, there are few opportunities to buy a meal (actually, until the restaurant at Mt Stromlo reopens, there is only one). You'll need a full day to take in the places on the drive, so the Moon Rock Café has an importance it...

  • Sammy's Kitchen

    4 out of 5 stars

    Canberra Restaurants

    Sited in the busy North Quarter in the city centre, Sammy's Kitchen is a great (but very popular) Chinese/Malaysian restaurant. It churns customers out. Tables are packed close together (and there's a lot of them) in this simple, clean (whitewashed walls, fairly bright lights, simple contemporary art on the walls) environment. It's not necessarily...

  • A.Baker

    Canberra Restaurants

    A.Baker is located in the burnt our remains of the former Acton Hotel (in a relatively new residential, art and entertainment precinct). It is designed to give that increasingly common industrial look – raw exposed walls, exposed air conditioning pipes, a rough wooden floor and open kitchen “to further break down physical barriers between raw...

  • Legends Spanish Restaurant

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Canberra Restaurants

    My husband visited the restuarant for a work Christmas function and did not stop talking about it. I was tired of him badgering me about going, so one night we went as a couple. The service is exceptional. The staff are long term, loyal employees who stay because they love working there, and LOVE the food!!! The staff are knowledgable and...

  • The Banana Leaf

    Canberra Restaurants

    This eating place is in the heart of Canberra...opposite David Jones and Myer department stores in the Canberra Mall. We had a table for 12...nicely placed in the centre of the restaurant. The sevice was excellent and we certainly enjoyed the food. As usual we chose a fish dish but there were plenty of choices on the menu. Sri Lankan dishes are...

  • Tilley's Devine Cafe Gallery

    Canberra Restaurants

    Tilley’s Devine Café Gallery, is something of an institution in Canberra now in operation for almost 30years. How does one describe this place? Permit me to quote from Sally Pryor ‘s article in the Canberra Times, 16 January 2003: “With elegant, dark wood fittings, a moody, deep red colour scheme, and soft jazz wafting between the old-fashioned...

  • Alto Tower Restaurant - Closed

    Canberra Restaurants

    If you want to enjoy your Dinner looking at an incredible view, then the Telecom tower is the place to go. It has Canberra's only revolving Restaurant. I have not had a meal here, only a drink in the day time in the Cafe, this was very expensive, so I would expect the Restaurant to be expensive as well. The views are fantastic, and I think at night...

  • Aubergine

    Canberra Restaurants

    Having promised myself an evening dining at Courgette's sister restaurant, Aubergine, it was only natural to celebrate Bastille Day '07 by doing so seeing we were in Canberra on a road trip South.{see review of Courgette above}. We were not disappointed by our choice. We had rung to book from Brisbane 6 weeks in advance but they could not fit us...

No 'greasy spoon' here. It is open from 7am every day...so we came back the next day.... It seemed to have an attractive array of cakes and offered meals all...

  • Scope Mount Stromlo

    Canberra Restaurants

    To date, on VT I have generally not done restaurant/cafe reviews and may only do so in special circumstances or where they are linked to another tip as is the case here. It may seem like a good idea (as it did to me) to combine a visit to Mt Stromlo Observatory with Sunday lunch at this, the only eating facility in the immediate area. The...

    Canberra Restaurants

    Kim and I went to Pangaea for lunch. Pangaea is one of the popular restaurants in Canberra, located in Manuka opposite St Christopher. They are serving lunch and dinner.

    Vietnamese and Chinese restaurant in Belconnen I have been a diner at this restaurant since in opened back in the early 2000s. It is still run by the same Vietnamese family.

  • Cafe in the House

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Canberra Restaurants

    I found everything perfect in this restaurant where we had lunch. Fabulous food, great service, wonderful location. The "Café in the House" is located in the courtyard of Old Parliament House, but contrary to this heritage building it is a stylish, modern and fresh place. You feel a bit like on a peaceful island, as there is no traffic around,...

  • Queen's Terrace Cafe

    Canberra Restaurants

    Until 2005 I hadn't had much of a coffee experience in Canberra. During a 2 hours stop over in 1999 I raced through the Civic part of town in search of a caffeinated hit before the next bus took me onto Sydney. Considering the lack of sleep I'd had on the bus from melbourne it was a bit of an event! Fortunately my most recent trip up to Canberra...

    Canberra Restaurants

    Located in a small shopping centre in the southside suburb of Pearce, not far from Woden Town Centre. Ambience is not particularly Indian or Fijian - but it's neat, clean, warm-looking and the management and staff are very friendly and helpful. Service is excellent and you can bring your own drinks - corkage is very reasonable. No matter what...

    This place is good and we even sat on the floor (on cushions of course) for a more authentic Japanese dining experience! The service is great, staff are friendly and attentive. More importantly, food is simple but elegant and tasty just as they do it in Tokyo!Of course, like any ordinary good Japanese food, it is a bit expensive than a Chinese...

  • Caffe Della Piazza - Closed

  • Ali Baba - Closed

    Canberra Restaurants

    In fact, I don't have a favourite restaurant in Canberra. First of all, I stayed at my best friends house and ate sometimes at home but also frequently in one of the several sport clubs Canberra counts. Those clubs offer good food for a small price and you can fill in your evening there with drinks, which are reasonably priced. They make their big...

  • Hudsons in the Gardens - Closed

    Canberra Restaurants

    Hudsons at the Gardens café is licenced and sells drinks & snacks & light food. Open every day from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm. I really liked the setting on the terrace under the umbrellas, looking down over parts of the Botanical garden. We only had coffee, but what we had tasted just fine.

  • Cafe Moda

    Canberra Restaurants

    In many ways, Cafe Moda is similar in style of many luncheon cafes in Canberra, with a setting of chairs and tables outside the main food sales area. The food is eclectic, though with a slight emphasis toward Italian. We like it for good service, good food and good coffee. Apart from that, the area where it is located is off to one side from the...

  • Central Cafe

    Canberra Restaurants

    If you are in Canberra and want a great (all day) breakfast then head out to the Central Cafe in Queanbeyan (you'll need a car - or bus - to get out there though). The breakfasts are HUGE and you will only need one ($11.50) for two people most times... :) The breakfast - bacon, eggs, toast, sausages, chips and tomato...
