A friend and I went to tilleys for lunch upon a recommendation of a chef I know. My first impression of this place was quite disappointing. After ordering and paying for our lunches, my friend was seated but I had to wait at the counter for my coffee to be made and I had to take it to my table.... More

A novel place to listen to music when available and have a meet up with friends. A busy and energising feel like a city pub with a twist of bohemian.

An icon in Canberra, it is comfortable, the music is gorgeous and in fact therapeutic, the decor elegant, has wonderful character, the staff professional and IMPECCABLE ALWAYS and food great quality and thoughtfully sourced. And you're welcome for long periods. Love it.

A friend and I called in here for lunch. I ordered gnocchi off the blackboard menu ($26) and a coffee ($4). When the dish arrived at our table we could not believe that such a small helping was on the plate. We expressed our disbelief to the attendant who shrugged and smiled. I counted the number of small gnocchi on... More

Tilley’s has been in Canberra for decades. I had a chance to catch up with a friend who had just retuned from Paris to hear about his filmmaking exploits. There is plenty of seating indoors and outdoors under a canopy or in front of Tilley’s under umbrellas. You order at the bar from the menu. There are also daily blackboard... More

We did breakfast, the menu is so limited I had vegemite toast. There are no explanations around how to order or collect your food/beverage. Coffee was great. I can do better vegemite toast at home.

A great little corner bar within walking distance from the house - warm inside with beautiful jazz playing. The food was reasonably priced and portions are MASSIVE - better off sharing if you aren't overly hungry!

This restaurant offers a unique 'long established' ambiance. It's not like so many try-hard 'plastic' eateries that naive out-of-towners drift in and out of in Canberra. Established in 1984, Tilley's is an honest, solid, spacious restaurant with a comfortable choice of tables or booths for diners. Excellent service is provided at the self service counter. Food and wine offerings are... More

Tilley's is a bit of an institution in Canberra's inner north. A large, well decorated barn of a place, usually crowded when we visited, and a bit noisy. Breakfast and lunch/dinner menus, with a good range of deli and continental style food at mid-prices. Our vegetarian friend was happy. Wines are not cheap, but there is range of wines from... More

We visited Tilley's Devine on the recommendation of 2 friends who both live in Canberra. After seeing so many empty restaurants in the city center it was lovely to walk into Tilley's and see every table full. There was an excellent 3 piece jazz ensemble playing on Saturday night. We shared some of the sharing plates - prawns wrapped in... More
