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

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

"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

Dining / Tantalising way to tease the tastebuds

"With Punjabi food, onion, ginger and garlic are used extensively and spices range from mild to 'on fire'," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / The best of the burger boom

"Mookie’s groove is that it is 'inspired by the nature of precision embedded into Japanese culture and the pursuit of flavour that captivates America'," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Taking it to the streets

"You sit on low stools like you would on the street. It’s edgy but relaxed all in one go. And fun," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / Sit, enjoy and banquet

"The restaurant is hugely accommodating with its set menus. One of our party doesn’t eat pork and LiloTang happily provided another option," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / A taste of Monkey mania

"Grease Monkey is pretty casual. You order and pay at the bar and then perch yourself on a seat... Grease Monkey is comfy being a family affair," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

"An Nguyen encourages healthy food choices for the body, with everything prepared using solely plant-based ingredients," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

"The area is modern, more spacious and more inviting with its perky yellow chairs, communal and individual wooden tables and greenery that thrives happily in the light-filled atrium," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / It all began with the Oysters Rockefeller…

"We love the location. The massive outdoor area. The comfy interior. The intriguing menu. But our weekend lunch visit wasn’t full of hugs and kisses," writes dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON

Dining / The gently changing face of Latino flair

"I happened to order a signature dish, the "Huevos Rancheros", which I loved because it satisfied my inner craving to have something super tasty and refreshingly different," writing dining reviewer WENDY JOHNSON.
