Meet the Chef

From a young age James was inspired by the idea of being creative in the kitchen and moved to Europe to begin his career, making his way into the London kitchen of celebrity chef Marco Pierre White. After returning home, James accepted a position as sous chef at Quay. With a desire and passion to strike out on his own, James chose Canberra as the place in which to showcase his French-inspired Australian cuisine.

    The 5 course Degustation absolutely perfect. The variation for each course superb. Quality of each dish and the size all perfect. The matching wines took this to the next level.

    Have been to Courgette several times now. It has been a "go to" for special events. Not so special tonight. No wow factor in 5/7 courses. Beef dish and dessert were fabulous.

    A great way to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. Courgette is a top class restaurant. We enjoyed every course (one for each seven years together).

    As usual the service was impeccable, the food was to die for, and the restaurant itself is a lovely quiet place even though other diners were there, we didn't notice them. Such a joy to visit.

    It was a brilliant and very memorable dining experience at Courgette. Our party of 8 were given a private room and it was perfect for celebrating my husband's special birthday with the family.

About the restaurant

You say zucchini, I say Courgette

Courgette is to restaurants what Bentleys are to cars – seriously luxurious. Located in the heart of Canberra city, expect French, fine fare from this frequently gong-winning restaurant. Dishes may appear to be simple but they rely on the freshest of ingredients and adventurous pairings to delight diners – and they've managed to collect chefs' hats every year for the past three years. Whether you want a three-course lunch or four course a la carte dinner, you had better be prepared to make some difficult choices. You should also ready yourself for dishes that delight the eye and sing on the tongue. Try the roasted Jerusalem artichoke, asparagus and eschalot with garlic foam, hazelnuts and lemon dressing. Alternatively, you may prefer the black Angus grange fillet of beef with pomme fondant (very fancy mashed potatoes), French lentils with heirloom carrots and olive jam. Expect courteous staff, well presented food and quality wines matched to your meal.

Best dish: Prosciutto wrapped, pan-seared scallops, confit chicken wings with pea mousse, lemon olive oil balsamic reduction
