    Exquisite food and flawless service. Our fourth visit, with many more likely to follow. The consistency of the food quality and the warmth and professionalism are greatly appreciated.

    A lovely, tasty and well presented meal at the new venue. Great service as usual. The birthday surprise was a wonderful touch! Found some parking under the building which was a bonus.

    First time at the new address (was in Campbell Shops) and found parking a bit of an issue. The service was good and the food great so well worth the effort. We had the dinner Chef's Tasting Menu and not a dish could be faulted. Great dinner with good food in a low key atmosphere.

    As always the food and service at the Lanterne rooms was excellent. Our waiter Jordan was incredible. He remembered us from our last visit a year ago and he made us feel welcome and part of the family and spoilt us throughout the night. A great experience.

    Food is great! Service is friendly. We had the lunch banquet for two, and we finished the entire lot. Parking is a lot easier now that it's not at the Campbell Shops, but paid unfortunately. But better than not getting a spot at all.

    By far the friendliest and most knowledgeable staff in any Canberra restaurant. Fantastic food, great setting, not crowded. Treat yourself to a night here and you’ll see why there’s no empty tables! Fine casual dining at it’s best

    The Resturaunt is new and not as unique in atmosphere yet holds the charm of the original Lanterene menu . We had the tasting menu and I do think it could be better thought out - I have had a lot of tasting and degustation menus and it did not meet the level of expectation -I felt we could have ordered direct from the menu and there was no real difference - As I have worked extensively in hospitality I think if you could take more time on a special degustation tasting section as you have but with more refine options and more care taken in presentation and something that stands out . Nothing stood out really and the bases flavour were so similar the subtlety of each dish was lost in the palate to a miscellaneous salty taste. Somehow u need to create a sensory experience if u are going to stand out Which fur your Buisness is a opportunity Give it some thought The host and service was lovely great friendly and considerate host - Very helpful despite us being lost as the ‘ fork ‘ who I booked woth had the wrong location / I gave Let the Fork Know

    This restaurant has long been a favourite of ours. This was our first visit to it in it’s new location and it did not disappoint. The food, service and ambience were all excellent. Found car parking a little difficult until we found the parking garage behind the restaurant with plenty of parking available.

    Lanterne Rooms has moved - fortunately, the food and service are still excellent. Ambience has improved at their new venue. Well worth the visit.

    Met a friend there for lunch and ordered from the Market lunch menu. Excellent food at a very reasonable price. Prompt service, which is always essential for a work day lunch. Definitely on my 'go there again' list.

    Great food and service as always, but prefer the ambience of the old venue which was more comfortable and intimate. In the new venue we sat on garden chairs (with cushions) in an open dining hall, but still enjoyed the excellent cuisine and service.

    Every time we go here we say why go anywhere else. This place is amazing and the service is second to none. The food is easy the best in Canberra. Oh also the new place is a charm. All new and loaded with charm

    The restaurant has moved and did not bother to notify us, its a short drive from the original location its a difficult to be dropped off or to park. We had the degustation menu which is reasonably priced and more than enough food. The first 3 courses where excellent as was the dessert but the other courses where over spiced, too salty and not that great. Overall a nice night.

About the restaurant

Lanterne light...

One of Canberra's best kept secrets. Lanterne Rooms is tucked away at Campbell shops, offering A-ma style Nyonya Malay cuisine with a twist.

The dining room is dark and intimate, making it ideal for couples, and the share style menu makes it great for groups too! The dishes change regularly but in our opinion the seafood items are the real highlight - think fresh XO scallops with mango salsa & sesame leave or steamed mussels with spicy coconut broth.

Come and sample this Canberra institution, you won't regret it!

Best dish: Soton Satay - marinated chilli squit with rojak
