    The head waiter tended to all other tables in the room, in order, ignoring us and failing to take our order. I made several request of other staff but waited almost 30 mins to place an order. I found the head waiter disengaged and some of the other staff dismissive bordering on rude. Despite having dined there some years ago, we won’t return.

    Courgette, fine food, great service and lovely ambience. Considering it was so busy it was still quiet and diners were respectful of others. Nice to dine in a place where you don't have to listen to blaring music that you have to talk loud to have a conversation. the ey made our anniversary special.

    Courgette never disappoints- we have been coming for years for special occasions and James is still a superb chef and host. The seven course degustation featured stunningly prepared and presented food and the ambience is great for a quiet celebration. Truly one of Canberra’s best restaurants, thank you everyone.

    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.

    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!

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
