Many people overlook Canberra as a fine food destination, but they are wrong to do so.
Canberra has begun to really shine as a foodie’s capital, with many great chefs and restaurants calling Canberra home.
Canberra boasts a host of one, and two hat, restaurants, according to the 2020 Good Food Guide.
So who are Canberra’s hatted restaurants?
TWO HATS 🎩 🎩
- Aubergine, Griffith – A sleek fine diner minutes from Capital Hill.
ONE HAT 🎩
- Bar Rochford, City – Next-level bar food and natural wines.
- Chairman and Yip, Barton – Modern Asian fusion.
- Courgette, City – Fine dining with finesse.
- Italian and Sons, Braddon – Bold Italian flavours in bustling Braddon.
- Morks, Kingston – Thai classics turned into fine dining masterpieces, with waterfront views.
- Ottoman Cuisine, Barton – Modern Turkish done with fresh, quality ingredients, warmth and class.
- Pilot, Ainslie – Dining among the leafy streets of residential Canberra
- Temporada, City – A “do-it-all” city bistro that delivers.

But you don’t need to spend a fortune, to find great quality food in Canberra. The national capital also offers a vast array of cheap eats, all of these are among my favourites:
– Akiba (Japanese)
There are also an number of clubs such as, The Irish Club, Southern Cross Club, Burns Club , Raiders’ and Ainslie Football Club that offer sensational meals at reasonable prices…especially with member discounts.
Anyway, all this talk of food is making me hungry – so I’ll see you back here tomorrow. I’m off to eat!
