    food was excellent, however let down by mixed service. We were served the chicken course, without any cutlery - the waitress left very quickly, and no one paid attention, so I had to go to the bar and then let them know, however they were serving a dish also, it took at least 5 mins to then have cutlery given to us. we then asked for more bread for both of us,only one came - which she apologised for, but then didnt come back to bring another serving of bread? Its minor, but it is a 2 hatted rest and when paying top dollar, service needs to be up to the mark, and it wasnt this time.

    This was my first 'speacial meal' out in Canberra since Feb/March. I was delighted when I made a spontanious booking for one just 1 hour prior. I was even happier to be able to ask for a seat outside on my own. My mother had passed away on Sunday, and wanted some space out to think, be spolt, and watch the passer-bys with no interaction. So - thank you Aubergine.

    whilst we all want efficient service, we were quite astonished that our entrees arrived before we had a chance to order our wine to accompany the meal. service was generally haphazard and careless particularly when pouring wine and water some of which ended up on our table rather than our glasses. the entrees were tasty and outstanding. our two fish dishes were also excellent with the mung bean puree to die for. our chicken and beef dishes were bland and unimpressive. the strawberry shiso mousse dessert had a strange texture and was overpowered by the capsicum sorbet which left a funny taste for some time after the meal. considering that this is meant to be one of the best restaurants in Canberra, one would expect that wait staff would also take better care of their personal grooming. overall compared to other restaurants of the same rating (2 hats) the restaurant does not unfortunately stack up

    Amazing food and friendly service. The salmon was mouth-watering and each meal was cooked to perfection. While the atmosphere was very pleasant, it was also very dark inside.

    This was our third visit to Aubergine and the standard has been high on each occasion. Great tasting menu with excellent wine and a lovely ambiance. A little bit expensive but worth it for the quality of the food and the service. It’s a pleasure to go there.

    We have recently moved to Canberra and have now sampled a few of the top rated restaurants in the area. I booked here to celebrate my wife’s birthday and was glad to have selected Aubergine restaurant with its superb service, modern atmosphere and exceptional food paired so beautifully with the menu. There are so many beautiful restaurants here and to date Aubergine restaurant is our favourite, well done to the owners and staff for making our us smile with every bite.

    We have eaten here before and will come back. It is not a cheap experience but I think you get value for money. Good food, an extensive winelist and staff that know and take pleasure in their service

    Not my first time but both times have been a wonderful experience. Wait staff very friendly and the sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable about the wines. The food was amazing. Someone there can cook. Yes it’s pricy but anyone looking to take their special someone out for a treat or in our case a final meal before sending family home this is a great place to take them.

    This outstanding restaurant is located in quiet, suburban Griffiths so there are no parking issues. The decor is understated elegance and the service friendly and efficient. The free canapés were delicious as were all the three savoury courses. Our party of three deliberately ordered different meals in each category so we could taste as much as possible-nothing disappointed! The desserts were interesting and complex-if not quite to our taste. The wine list was extensive and wide ranging with Australian and overseas offerings. Fortunately it also offered some affordable options. While expensive this is a special restaurant for special occasions!

About the restaurant

Aubergine is an intimate space, with high ceilings, beautiful lights and simple, elegant decor which allows the product of creative and interesting food to shine. The food style is contemporary, however there is always a classic background to our ideas. The kitchen is supplied by local farmers and benchmark suppliers that understand that rather than we tell them what we need we prefer for them to tell us what produce is at its best on the day. In turn that means that our menu is updated daily. Our wine list has won numerous awards and has over 500 labels of interesting and classic wines. It shows the same philosophy of using local and smaller growers that produce interesting wines for us to get excited about.
