Really lovely food... all our mains were perfect... the eggplant was underwhelming-- we expected something tempura-battered as opposed to just fried steaks, and the smoked rosemary honey seemed to be almost a non-element! We love Parlour and will try to come every time we're in Canberra.

Great atmosphere with the Victorian furniture palms and nooks where you can eat and drink at a table or relax on the various lounges and armchairs. Suited to younger and older generations. Great tapas menu also although we had the new autumn restaurant menu which was delicious, tender and colourfully inviting.

Great atmosphere. The pistachio brûlée was interesting minus the Persian floss but that’s only because I am not a fan preferring the super sugary cotton candy stuff.

We had lunch special with a glass of sparkling wine (only $2 extra). Choices for lunch were good. Food quality was very good. Service was prompt. Overall a pleasant and enjoyable lunch experience.

Loved the place. food was really good we had the confit duck salad, char-grilled octopus as entree and barramundi & eye fillet as main. all food we ordered was very tasty. The atmosphere was good for a date night. we had the spritz but I wasn't a fan. Then I tried the Riesling it was very nice. Everything was priced reasonably. Loved it and will come back!

The lunch menu and glass of wine is great value and is available seven days a week. Service friendly and helpful . We were seated in a corner but the restaurant is a nice space.
