Canberra restaurants reviewed by Wendy Johnson. What and where to eat in Canberra.

Dining / A taste of real food, good coffee and great service

"I sat in the sunny courtyard out back, which was quieter than inside – the place was pumping and the coffee machine humming, which is great to see," writes WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Relaxed, unpretentious and inexpensive

"Bean and Table has plenty of sunshine sweeping over its outdoor dining area, which is quite large. You rock up to the long, long counter area at the back of the café to order," writes WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / A new taste at the gallery

"The Kitchen needs to review the descriptions on its menu to make sure it delivers on what is promised. Still, we’ll be back," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Cannoli sweet, cannoli savoury!

"Andrew Stefanou is loud and proud about taking a traditional dessert and giving it a good, old Aussie twist," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dinning / Press here for wholefoods in a jar

"The menu isn’t extensive. If you’re looking for a big plate of hangover-cure greasy eggs and bacon you’re going to be disappointed. This place is about the body and soul," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / 10 out of 10 for Woden’s No.10

"No.10 has a super outdoor area that gets sun during the day and it’s a welcome addition to the Woden food scene. The portions are super generous, especially for the price.," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Little cafe with a big view

"Two of us ordered the sweet potato and beetroot fritters, an interesting combination of flavours and not too sweet," writes food reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / The Place for fresh, market food

"To say that the food is fresh is an understatement. Winifred’s sources daily from the markets, including free-range and organic meats and ethically sourced seafood," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Inventive, refined and intriguing Thai

"Don’t expect ordinary Thai at Morks. Thai flavours are evident, but the creation of each dish is elevated to another level," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / In a Milton kitchen garden

"I recently dined at Cupitt with a large group, indulging in a set lunch menu designed to share. There wasn’t a complaint to be had," writes reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Taking the high road with coffee

"We made the mistake of ordering a cappuccino and were told (politely but firmly) that one cannot 'taste the coffee' in a cappuccino," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / A journey to tantalise the tastebuds

“The menu showcases many interesting options and we promised ourselves to return to indulge in other dishes, and very soon," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Chef Christophe’s travail d’amour

"Le Très Bon is a labour of love by master chef Christophe Gregoire, born and raised in France’s Les Vosges region," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Laneway gets a splash of green

"Meadow focuses on plant-based food, although reading the menu you don’t really notice," says dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Voila! The bagel meets the brioche

"The bragel is softer and more fluffy than a bagel. And more buttery like a brioche," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / The critic’s call: Canberra’s top restaurants 2017

Dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON reveals her list of Canberra's top five restaurants for 2017.

Dining / Divine taste of edible luxury

"If savoury isn’t your thing at breakfast, try the decadent chocolate french toast – chocolate ganache, orange marmalade, chocolate soil, macerated berries, brioche and vanilla ice cream," suggests dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Where everything old is new again

"With a spruced-up outdoor area and new tables nestled under glorious mature trees with views of the lawns of Green Square and plenty of sun, The Durham called out to us," writes WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Hot news, Romain ‘s new bakery

"Romain has been baking since he was young, having worked at reputable establishments such as Maison Maufferon and Boulangerie Guy Miniconi in France," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / A striking taste of modern Japanese

"It’s fascinating to sit at the bar and watch the team carve out beautiful food, plated to perfection," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON
