Courgette is worth way more than one hat. Service superb and food to match. Best restaurant in Canberra - or if not, very very close. Will return next trip.

We went to Courgette on Valentines Days and had the 4 course degustation. All the dishes were absolutely amazing, the staff were friendly and attentive and the wine was lovely and reasonably priced. Only downside was the cheese plate at the end was absurdly overpriced.

We have gone here a number of times before for special occasions and we love it. The service is superb and the food is magnificent. You never leave hungry either. We arrived for our booking to be told by head chef and owner that there was actually no table. He was very apologetic. We really wanted to stay though so... More

Exceptional service and food. Waiter could recommend matching wines and degustation menu was reasonably priced. Waitressing staff attentive without being intrusive. Chef substituted items on degustation menu to meet dietary needs. The perfect romantic birthday dinner. Highly recommended.

The dishes we had were all beautifully presented and tasted delicious; definitely the sort of food I would be unable to reproduce in my own kitchen. The waiters/waitresses were professional and perceptive, but it was the ambience that made this restaurant stand out from others. It was a lovely change to be able to hear the conversation of our group... More

We went for dinner and had a wonderful time. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We had a four course meal with a wide range of choices for each course. The wine selection was very good. One of Canberra's top restaurants.

My husband and I booked dinner at Courgette as an early valentines dinner. The four course dinner degustation was delicious and is only $88pp. We had the salmon and scallop ceviche for first course, followed by duck ravioli for myself and baby dory for hubby. Third course my husband had the venison and I had the fish sandwich. Dessert was... More

Courgette is the best fine dining restaurant in Canberra. The food is exceptional in quality, creativity, and presentation. It is also very good value compared to what one would pay for a comparable experience in Sydney. However, there is room for improvement. The service was mixed and was of the type, which seems to be a growing trend, where multiple... More

We visited Courgette to celebrate a wedding anniversary. Despite being late to make the booking and it being the busy Christmas party season these guys were able to accomodate us and gave us a wonderful experience. The owner and the staff made us feel very special and setting was beautiful. The four course menu was one of those meals we... More
