We loved the updated decor: very classy and elegant. The food and service remained of a very high standard. We like Boffins as a reliable restaurant we can take our visitors to where we will have a fine dining experience and be able to converse easily without needing to shout above overly-loud music. Thanks again!

About Boffins

Boffins was extensively renovated in 2018 to provide a modern contemporary dining experience. Boffins at University House is the flagship restaurant with a focus on paddock to plate dining and serving the best of Canberra Region and Australian wines whilst showcasing artwork and sculpture from across the University. The bar also stocks a wide range of artisan spirits and local craft beers providing diners with a unique selection. Our chefs are in regular contact with our local farmers and suppliers and source food directly from farm gates where possible. Menus can change daily, based on supply and are ever evolving as our dedicated kitchen team works to display the produce on offer. Diners may select a la carte or try a 'feed me' menu and let the kitchen take them on a food journey.
