A big difference between price between Aubergine and Sepia.
Aubergine: a 4 course menu for $90 per person.
Sepia: Dinner midweek and Friday lunch we offer a 5 course menu ($160pp)
and 9 course tasting menu ($190pp).

I wonder how big these courses are. Two courses are usually a struggle for me.

Canberra has got its birthday card from the Queen, and is now finally growing up.

Congratulations to Ben and all the hard working staff at Aubergine.

Canberrans’ should take pride in everyone here who strives to do their best and work their hardest to make a mark.

It used to only be acceptable to do that in sports. Now our best take any available opportunity to shine.

Good on them, and let’s all get behind them.

Just in the food industry alone we are producing the best truffles in Australia, have some of the best cool climate wines, Pialligo Estate Smokehouse and Poachers Pantry are doing great work with meats, there are several excellent micro-breweries, Ona has great coffee and the world champion barrista, Autolyse and others are giving us great bread, Frugii has given gelato and deserts a huge boost, and the list just keeps growing…

Go Canberra.

Picked the right restaurant for our Anniversary this year. Sepia was a step above anything in Canberra. Some restaurateurs in Canberra who missed out on making the top 100 should go there to see how good dining and service can be.
