Another Restaurant question post…

By elena - 18 March 2009 85

The in-laws are taking me out for a nice dinner because I recently had a *ahem* significant birthday (the age, feel the age).

But we’re trying to find a nicey restaurant to go out to but are a bit non-plussed by what we’ve found.

Save me RiotACT community, what restaurant ideas are there for a special occassion?

[ED – Yes, we’ve done this before, but times change]

What’s Your opinion?

seafood buffet, mde workalot? try the coast somewhere!

don’t know of any good ones in cbr; might have to ask mssr workalot to transport you appropriately to sunny sinney and find somewhere in manly or by the harbour somewhere – doyles?

Will be doing the coast seafood buffet over Easter – what can I say, I’m greedy 🙂

Thanks for the tip – if there is no places in Canberra, I think I will mosey on up to Sydney.

Delissio’s in Braddon is great, or if your on south side then Turkish Grill in Erindale

My personal favourite is D’Browes in Narrabundah – it’s the place we always go for special occasions. Otherwise Rubicon is also excellent. I have heard that Kingsleys is very expensive for the food served.

I’m looking at going out for dinner for my birthday too!

I wanted to find somewhere with a seafood buffet – Rydges Lakeside used to do one but now it seems to be only Seafood Degustation, which is not the same…

I’m tossing up between Kingsleys Crab and Steakhouse or Redsalt. Any opinions welcomed.

Another vote for the Rubicon in Griffith…also Chairman & Yip. We tried Axis @ The National Gallery once…it was ok, but quality didn’t seem to match the price. THat was several years ago though.

Central Cafe in Queanbeyan. Fantastic food, beautiful decor. Amazing service.

+1 I go for the decor alone.

list is long in cbr for a good meal at a nice swank-ish place.

best food is to be had at places like rubicon (griffith), lanterne rooms (campbell), chairman and yip (civic), axis (museum), corgette (civic) though some other choices for a slap up celebration are aubergine (griffith – over-priced and over-rated, but nice surrounds and good service), jehangir (swinger hill – if you want indian), anise (west row), benchmark (civic – already cited above), mezzalira (west row, but i have heard distressing news of its latterly decline), the place in the hyatt whose name eludes me now (in the corridor half way back…)

happy b’day and bon apetit

(personally, opt for lanterne rooms – you won’t be disappointed)

I’ve been toChairman and Yip in Civic a few times recently and to the Lanterne Rooms in Campbell. Both offer a sound return on your investment and I recommend them heartily.

+1 for Rocksalt. I found the staff friendly and knowledgeable and the food was divine.

Benchmark in Civic is faboo

What side of town you on ?

I live in Gunghalin and my best locals are Rocksalt (Hawker Shops), Grazing (Gundaroo) and Green Herring (Federation Village).
