Imaginative menu though sometimes dishes were a little too complicated for us. Duck was delicious. Service was great. Missed the old world decor though, before Boffins refurbished.

Needed rice with my curry! Other guests very pleased with quality of food. Service somewhat inconsistent but the four wait staff were very busy. Nil muzak a real plus.

It's hard to fault Boffins. The food was just great, as was the service - including delivering the bill at just the right moment.

A charming and comfortable restaurant with noise levels that allowed for easy conversation. A waiter who was charming and knowledge about the food and a sommelier who was helpful and generous with tastings. The food was imaginative, well presented and very tasty. A great occasion soon to be repeated.

See above comments which encapsulate the reaction. Don't know why I should be required to fill in this section. The form is annoying but you asked for it.

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.
