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.

The food was nice, although some of the portions were very small. The service was poor and we had to ask to be served and for the remainder of our order. To her credit, the waitress did note some serves were for two people and as a group of three, asked if we would like three portions of a serve. The coffee was cold. I might give them another go, to see if things have improved. There is too much competition in Canberra to have poor service even on a Sunday.

One of our favourite places to dine in Canberra, great relaxed atmosphere and food is always excellent quality. The views over the garden and lake during daylight hours.

About Parlour

Set amongst the historic New Acton precinct, Parlour is a dining and drinking experience like no other in Canberra. Open until late, we offer tapas from the kitchen, local and international boutique wine, as well as classic and house cocktails – all delivered with friendly and personalised service. Parlour aims to provide an environment for warm, convivial lunches and lavish late nights – slightly removed from the Civic centre. We encourage the night-cappers, power lunchers, birthday drinkers, gourmet grazers, and wine lovers. We pride ourselves on a commitment to ethical food practices, with head chef James Forman preferring to source locally and sustainably where possible. We invite you to take a seat in one of our infamously cozy lounges and discover exactly what makes Parlour so unique.
