This was our second visit to Aubergine, this time for our wedding anniversary. It remains truly outstanding. This atmosphere is simple, functional and elegant without being ostentatious. It is clearly a well thought out use of the space and works well. You don't feel crowded...More

We chose Aubergine for our anniversary dinner. We were glad we did, as we found parking easily(not always so in Canberra). The four-course formula is excellent with the Chef providing one or two and you selecting the others. The freshness, seasonal and local nature of...More

I can't answer this directly as I only visited as a couple and we paid by credit card. But I would be doubtful that bill splitting would be the go at this restaurant. There were groups present when I was there but I didn't... More
