Generally don't eat in hotels I stay in - this is reason why. Food was average. Fish was nicely cooked but nothing special, small salad to accompany - and over $30. Service was good. Find a good local restaurant.

Food is ok, not amazing, and not worth the price. $8 for 2 dinner rolls, $35 for a vegetarian risotto. I would only eat here if you can't bothered leaving the hotel for dinner.

Very bad for back of house not to let front of house know at start of service. Not sure how you can have no oysters at the beginning of service very poor planning. Also... More

The restaurant and bar décor were warm and inviting and staff friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, our food experience left a lot to be desired. Overcooked salmon, twice!

Great service, and a well balanced menu with something for everyone. My husband enjoyed the smoked lamb cutlets and my sous vide Tasmanian salmon was cooked perfectly. The indulgent 'side' of goose fat potatoes were delicious! The restaurant has a lovely ambiance that lends itself to the Art Deco era of the hotel.

We stayed at the Kurrajong Hotel recently and while there enjoyed a meal at their Chifley's restaurant. There is an attractive verandah area and courtyard adjacent to the restaurant for pre/post dinner drinks if desired. Though quite crowded that night, the service was professional and helpful. Between the four of us we covered a range of dishes and enjoyed all... More

During our three night stay at the Hotel Kurrajong we had three breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners at Chifley's Bar & Grill with friends and family. The service was efficient and friendly on each occasion. Breakfast was a buffet style but you could also order different hot dishes. Plates and drinks were replenished regularly - cost was $28 for...

All set in a terrific hotel. Best value in Canberra if you feel you would like to get away from the rat race. Again a step back in time.

We had the mixed grill for 2 for dinner, just enough along with the bread starter. Comes out on a board with chicken, steaks, bacon and lamb along with... More
