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

Super friendly staff, no attitude, they really want to make every patron's experience a pleasure. Nice ambience. Tables are well spaced, the room is carpeted, I didn't notice any background music, a massive plus. The sommelier was unpretentious and really took time to explain the...More

The food is excellent - well thought out, beautifully presented and always perfectly prepared. The food has a French influence, but the chef is creative and does not confine himself regionally. He'll experiment and invariably gets it right. The service is excellent - the staffs...More

Rather than describe each course, I would say to just dine here and you won't be disappointed. There was great attention to detail, wonderful flavors and inventive food that wasn't gimmicky. The degustation was also wonderful value and while we didn't go with the wine...More

A belated 50th celebration was well worth the wait. Great atmosphere, wait staff knowledgeable and discrete, sommelier was great, and food was perfect. So nice that you don't have to travel to Sydney or Melbourne to get a perfect, extraordinary restaurant experience.

Loved it! Everything about it. Wanted to try something new and we were not disappointed. A little pricey so keep in mind, but lovely as a special evening out.

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

The dress code is relaxed casual. It is considered Canberra's best restaurant so I would avoid shorts and runners. But no need for jacket or tie or long flowing evening wear, unless you want to make a grand entrance for a... More
