We ate early 6pm as they have 2 sittings. The wait staff were great. Quite multi cultural. It's a set menu with a couple of choices for each course. The food was sensational. The sommelier was amazing and organised a glass of wine to match each course. We loved it and will definitely recommend it to all our friends back... More

We were travelling through Canberra just before my birthday so spoiled ourselves to an amazing dinner at Courgette. The food is as good as people tell you it will be; really very special. I adored the goats chees and heirloom tomato entree, the venison was amazing. It was all quite something. Well worth a visit for that special occassion.

What a pleasant surprise this restaurant is!! Great ambience, brilliant wine list (and reasonably priced) interesting menu and first class service. And the food....fabulous! I Between us we pretty much covered the menu and without exception were all very happy with our choices. That's very rare. I can highly recommend this restaurant to fellow travellers passing through Canberra.

From the moment we arrived the staff were attentive, but discrete. The food was excellent in flavours, textures and the presentation was a work of art. Definitely recommend asking them to match the wines - the sommelier is excellent and every wine complemented or contrasted our dishes perfectly. We both chose to have different dishes for each course so we... More

Excellent service and lovely ambiance. Most of us ordered the single vegetarian option for all four courses​. All of us were delighted and surprised with every course: beautiful presentation, interesting theming, nicely proportioned, and a subtle but delicious combination of flavours. It was overall an exceptional dining experience for a special occasion.

The restaurant was very noisy and the food uninspiring. There were no real choices for vegetarians but the food was displayed as a work of art.

My absolutely favourite Canberra restaurant for a special occasion. Food and service excellent in a quiet setting where you can actually hear, and respond to without yelling, the people you're dining with (what is it about restaurants these days where the music and/or the close crowding of other tables in an acoustically harsh fitout drown out all conversation?). $88 4...

One hatted restaurant recommended by friends from Canberra. Great venue, great service. The 4 course menu at $88 was really good value. The dishes were modern australian and contemporary, but also good portion size. The venison was sensational! A fine selection of local wines. I will be going here again for sure.

We attended a private dinner in The Boardroom, which was ideal in that it was quiet, except for our conversations and speeches, intimate yet not claustrophobic and with a beautifully laid table. So the ambiance was perfect. The service was unobtrusive, timely and efficiently friendly which added to the sense of a grand occasion. We had the 4 course menu... More
