    The food and service were good. Unfortunately we were seated at a noisy table next to busy passageway to kitchen and next to bar with noisy ice crushing and lady staff member chatting loudly to other staff.

    Food was great. Service was excellent and the staff were very attentive, they even gave us a treat for our celebration. We just didn't like the location of our table because the cashier counter was behind us, if only they put something to cover it should be fine. Otherwise we were happy and definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Highly recommended. Had the 4 course ($95 pp) & food was superb, as was service. Ambience was nice, my only tiny issue was a slightly longer than expected wait between courses. However, this did not detract from the overall excellent experience.

    Great service which we tipped accordingly, The cocktails margarita was wonderful as was the French 75. We had the 7 course degustation menu with wine pairing and were underwhelmed as portions were tiny and the wine was $60 per head for a very miserly pour per glass, although they were very well paired, The first course signature courgette dish was delicious, the salmon was delicate, fragrant and lovely, the swordfish was also lovely, the duck sausage was overcooked, tough and disappointing the accompanied scallop wasn’t which was lovely, the lamb was overcooked although beautifully flavoured with the vegetables, beef with oxtail was flavoursome and delicious, Desert was delicious, however overall for $415 fo 2 I felt comparing with After recently dining at competitors Aubergine and Sage they were a better choice for their portions with courses and wines and atmosphere.

    A very special occasion for my family, a night for us to remember, we thoroughly enjoyed every bite of each course & will definitely return for the next special event. My Miss 3 would enjoy this as her palette is extensive. Love to see a menu that might tailor for kiddies, as a one off special treat.

    The food was truly excellent, but we were frustrated at the very long periods between the courses. Service seemed to be slower than the last time we were there. It is nice the way they recognise special occasions. The staff were friendly and welcoming, but no one came to enquire how we were going during a course, only afterwards. Had to wait forever to pay the bill, which is always annoying--when you are ready to leave, you want to leave!

    Hands down, Courgette was the best restaurant I have visited in years. The ambience was delightful, the service was friendly & efficient, and most importantly, the food was truly superb. Visually enticing, with delicious flavours in every course. We will definitely be back .. next time we'll try the 7 course degustation!

    Wow this place has changed. The food is still delicious but the servings are definitely smaller. The service is very average. The staff used to explain the courses but they pretty much just throw the dishes on the table and mumble at you. Same with wine pairings...

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
