Canberra restaurant offers: things to know before you go


You're in the mood for some delicious food, but what to choose? Whether you're looking for deals at cheap restaurants in Canberra, cafes or something a little different to the norm, our quick-fire answers to these top questions can help.

Where are the best restaurants in Canberra?

The best restaurants in Canberra is quite a list. It includes some real heavyweights, such as Italian and Sons in Braddon, which claimed the No.1 spot in Good Food's selection. Not only one of the best Italian restaurants, it's perhaps one of the best in Australia. There's also a place for Raku, which is noted for its swanky image and the delicious simplicity of its dishes.

There are plenty of tempting Canberra restaurant vouchers available:

  • Waters Edge restaurant offers a degustation menu – otherwise known as a tasting menu – so you can try several sample dishes, including pan-seared king prawns and prosciutto carbonara ravioli.
  • The award-winning Wild Duck serves Asian fine dining, dishing up delicacies such as Wagyu beef dumplings and basil chilli squid.
  • OTIS Dining Hall, in Kingston, has earned rave reviews from diners. These are often for its spectacular truffle special menu and dishes including Japanese custard with lobster and whole egg yolk ravioli.

Is Canberra good for vegan food?

Following a vegan diet might mean you need to be a little picky when selecting potential restaurants in Canberra, but you'll still have plenty of options. Renowned vegan restaurants in the city include Lazy Su – a Japanese, Korean and US fusion diner among one of the best cheap restaurants in the city. Also try Raku, Akiba and the aptly-named Courgette restaurant.

Are there any famous chefs in Canberra?

You'll find famous, well-respected chefs behind some of the best restaurants in Canberra. Courgette is led by celebrated chef James Mussillon, who has a glittering CV having trained in Europe and worked in London under the legendary Marco Pierre White.

Ben Willis at Aubergine is another famous culinary name. The reputation of Willis was enhanced further when Aubergine was awarded two hats in the Good Food Guide 2019 – making it the only restaurant in the city to achieve the distinction.

One third of the famous McConnell brothers has also made a lasting impression in the city. Sean McConnell – brothers Andrew and Matt are also restaurateurs – established Monster Kitchen as one of the most talked destinations.

What traditional food is Canberra known for?

Like many modern Australian cities, there's a booming cafe culture in the capital, so some of the most traditional restaurants are simply places to get a great cup of coffee and an awesome brunch or breakfast.

Think smashed avocado on toast, with a drizzling of olive oil. You'll find this, as well as other big brekkie favourites, on the menu at Morrissey on the Boardwalk and other similar cafes.

On top of this, you can sample some of Australia's famous cuisine in a restaurant across Canberra including chicken parmigiana and meat pies, or try the native wildlife with a Kangaroo burger.
