    Beautiful atmosphere, and the diiner meal was very nice. Each dish just didn't have the flavours bursting like I had expected. Their lunch menu is however amazing and flavoursome.

    We were having a light meal before a movie and we specified that we had to leave by a certain time. We chose tapas so there wouldn't be a long wait for food. After 30 minutes I had to remind the staff that we were still waiting and due to leave in a further 30 minutes. After a while the food came but we didn't have time to enjoy the meal as we had to leave (as we had told the staff when booking and on entry into the restaurant)

    I would absolutely recommend this restaurant. Mackenzie looked after us and she was fantastic and gave great suggestions and was super friendly. The food was delicious. We had a selection of smaller shared dishes and it was plenty of food for a group of five. Will be going back again soon. Fabulous.

    The staff were amazing. Our babysitter fell through so we brought our 5 year old. There was one particular staff member who was particularly attentive. Without us asking they asked the kitchen to prepare a kid friendly meal and brought paper and pen to the table for drawing (which I usually bring with me but forgot). It was greatly appreciated. Lovely food. Very efficient and friendly service.

    Delicious lunch menu. Top quality and very reasonably priced. Option to add a $2 glass of red, white or sparkling or a $4 beer when you order a lunch item.

    The food is delicious food, the lunch deal is excellent value, and the restaurant is very cosy- its the perfect place to go on a cold winter day in Canberra.

    Everything was fabulous- thank you we will be back. The previous page was hard to tick the correct box - perhaps an error in system. Wanted to tick low noise and great value and service. Thank you

    Couldn't fault Parlour! Had the most beautiful set up that felt very private no matter where you were sitting, and although there was a few other people (maybe half full) it felt like we were dining privately as was so quiet and well spaced. Food was absolutely amazing and service was great. Will absolutely be back!

    Food was good, a wide rage of options, including interesting vegetarian dishes. However, service was a little slow, we ordered lunch at 12.40 pm, and did not get served until 1.20pm. Great venue and location.

    My partner and I celebrated our anniversary here and weren't disappointed. The prawns were the best we've ever had. 100% would go there and get that again.

    Another delicious lunch with elderly parents in law who loved the decor, noise level and the food. Lamb backstrap and beef burger with speck were both excellent

    Parlour has always been a favorite of mine; love the funky antique setting; range of quality food. Love sitting outside in summer sipping a gin n tonic special and its now become a lunchtime favorite too

    The food was nice and well priced. I wish they add meals ???? as they only have tapas. The ambiance is really good and very neat.

    Lovely lunch options, perfect venue for a chilly day. Quite busy and quick service. The lunch deal with a $2 wine was generous. We enjoyed it very much.

    Great value for money with their offer a wine for $2 with lunch meal. The wine is great - a boutique winery from VIC - so don't be worried that you'll get a dodgy 'house' wine. Food was excellent, service was great, ambience was perfect!

    Excellent place for lunch, friendly staff, tasty food and cocktails. Lovely relaxed atmosphere and decor. A little gem in New Acton with parking close by.

About the restaurant

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. Note that all bookings are for the duration of 120 minutes only until further notice.

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.
