Although when we rang to book the night before, and were told the restaurant was booked out, they suggested placing us on a waiting list. We received a phone call the following afternoon telling us that a table was available. We arrived a little bit earlier than the 8:30pm booking, and were told to wait outside as there wasn’t “waiting... More

Delicious 4 course degustation menu with ample choices including seafood and vegetarian options. Pricey at $90/head plus $50 for matching wines but worth it.

Very, very good dining experience. The menu is interesting, the execution outstanding. The sorts of dishes you really want to savour. Fantastic. Wine list - imaginative with very good guidance from the sommelier. Wait staff - attentive. Prices - not cheap, but absolutely reasonably, given the quality.

We had a fixed first course with options available for courses 2-4 and dietary requirements were catered for with no fuss. The meal was lovely - really interesting combinations and lovely presentation. We didn't matched wines but our waiter Ben made some really helpful selections which we enjoyed throughout the night.

I needed a good restaurant for a special occasion. Aubergine did not disappoint. It was excellent. The menu choice was great with something covering all tastes. Serving portions were just right. We went with the matching wines for each course and had a great conversation with the sommelier about his choices. This really enhanced our dining experience. Overall I thought... More

We had heard a lot about this restaurant before actually dining there. Our expectations were high and I was aware that we would need to select from a pre-set menu. The food was very nice - not always what we anticipated but everyone was able to find something they wanted to choose from the dishes on offer. We did not... More

Amazing menu and a gorgeous presentation of exquisite cuisine! The service was outstanding. The cocktails were tasty and the ambience mesmerizing! By far the best restaurant in Canberra. Worth every penny.

I went here last night for our work Christmas Dinner. I have to say this lovely restaurant can never be criticised. Service is second to none. Food is exceptional and the ambiance of the restaurant is so special. I also went with my husband only last month, so different experience to the group meal, I have actually been going here... More

Went there for dinner on Saturday night - the food and service was exceptional. We had the early booking at 6pm and we were not rushed at all managing to finish a fantastic 4 course meal by 8.30pm! Thank you to Chester, Cyril and the team - will definitely come back next time we are in Canberra!
