Here with friends (chosen due to it's gluten free options for me), we had a lovely dinner. We were tended to with great care and certainly didn't feel neglected, nor hassled. The menu was varied and the food was presented to highlight it's creativeness. While listed as fine dining, it was a comfortable environment to wear smart casual clothes and... More

I had dinner here last Friday evening. The atmosphere was warm and very inviting. The staff were very attentive and professional. The food was excellent. We had a very good evening and I would highly recommend this restaurant to people visiting Canberra.

Our group of eight all thoroughly enjoyed the beautifully presented, fresh and tasty food. The service was excellent and the atmosphere, including the open fire was perfect for the cold, wet evening. It was a first visit for most of the group and they are all keen to return.

This was our return visit after five years to the 1860's slab hut restaurant where my partner and I first met (at a trivia evening) and we were not disappointed. We were met with a friendly welcome and ushered to a cosy romantic table near the roaring open fire. We loved it but if you score this table you will... More

We took the family for a midweek birthday dinner. The food was great and so fresh. We are told everything down to the bread and ice cream is made onsite. While there was no kids menu, catering to a 6 year olds palate was not a problem. I am told it was the best restaraunt my boy has ever had.... More

Delicious food with great service. There is a really good menu to choose from and a good wine selection. The desserts were so yummy. We had a table near the open fire - I highly recommend sitting there. Magic night.

Was here for a "speciality whiskey dinner" the other week and the whole evening was wonderful. The staff at the restaurant were friendly and efficient and the food was a perfect match for the tastings. The open fire gives a fantastic ambience to the place on a chilly winter's night, though you want to make sure you aren't too close... More

The Green Herring is consistent. Amazing food, gorgeous location (especially the fireplace in winter!) and friendly, welcoming staff. Recommended for couples or small groups of friends. Try the dessert platter!

Booked a table for 4 for dinner. As it was a chillingly cold night, the open fire places were a warm refuge from the cold as was the warm greeting we recieved. We were promptly asked what we would like to drink. To me, this is a true measure of a good restaraunt as it shows they care rather than... More
