    It was a nice experience. Nice food. We all had three courses plus some add on cheese and matching wines. Pork belly was hit and miss between us. Some parts were super tender and others stringy and fatty. Poached chicken was jelly like and a bit ordinary but filling. Soft shell crab was bland. Beef carpaccio with rice crackers stood out as a winner. Pepper steak was a stand out amazing dish with beautiful flavour, and a nice rich jus/gravy. Came with a salad and char potatoes. Lamb rump and fish of the day (salmon) were good too. Tiramisu was bland, but the cheese platter was divine. The first soft cheese was yumazing! OverAll good enough atmosphere to be able to talk and have a good time. Would go back.

    I have been wanting to try OTIS for a long time and today did not disappoint. Service was excellent - attentive but not “hovering”. Food was excellent. Every ingredient complemented each other. Wait staff were also very engaging with my 8 year old little gourmet who could not fault anything on the menu. I had ravioli, lamb and tiramisu. All were divine. Would return for just the service or just the food, but the two combined were magic. Thanks OTIS!

    This was a delightful dining experience and a meal with both thoroughly enjoyed. The care and passion the whole team have is really evident in the food they serve and the overall experience you have as a dinner.

    Service was excellent and so welcoming. We did the 5 course tasting menu, beautiful dishes but maybe could have gone with 3 courses, so filling!

    The food here was absolutely outstanding! The plating was beautiful too - loved the oysters plated on little rocks. Atmosphere was lovely, warm and sophisticated. Service was mixed - waitstaff were lovey and friendly when they arrived, but we actually sat for half an hour before asking for a menu, because no one offered it to us! Overall, I would definitely go back though. Great night!

    Another fantastic meal at Otis. Big punches of flavour in a creative menu. Dessert choices could use some attention, but this is only a suggestion, not a criticism. Definitely in the top 5 Canberra fine diners.

    Loved that the place was relatively quiet although almost full. That's a big plus. Food was tasty as always, and staff welcoming and knowledgable. It would be great to have some decent GF and DF (ie both in one dish) dessert options. It's not hard but this is where most restaurants disappoint, when you go out for a nice night out.

    We went to Otis last Wednesday night for a special birthday celebration. From the warm welcome, to the attentive service throughout, the young team of staff made it a very special occasion. A special shout out to Indy our main server, whose knowledge of the 10 course tasting/degustation menu & local paired wines was superb, and her friendly and attentive service was a highlight, including suggesting and enabling a couple of minor changes to the tasting menu to suit our tastebuds!

    Food was delicious and gorgeously presented. It was quite a cool temperature in the restaurant. A little noisy, hard to hear conversation at your own table at times. All in all, I'd be back again for the food and wine selection. And their comfy seats!

    Service was very slow. We waited a long time to get glasses for champagne, had to go over to ask for the wine list, and for our order to be brought to the table. Also had to go over to the bar to ask for menus. The good, however ,was very good.
