    As regular diners at Parlour we anticipated good food in a welcoming atmosphere. Alas, on this occasion the service was tardy and the noise from a large group intruded into our enjoyment of the evening. The food was good, although very slow to appear.

    What a great find this was. We had an awesome tapas lunch outside and loved the food and atmosphere so much we went back the next evening for another go. Really enjoyed the taste and quality of their food. The staff were attentive and friendly. We'll look it up again when next in Canberra. Great work !

    Great ambience, they have really used the space intelligently and I would give them 10 out of 10 for that. Food was very tasty if expensive for the portion sizes. Wine list not cheap. Had an ordinary bottle that sells at Dan Murphys for $13 for $56 on their menu. Service completely indifferent as is the norm in Australia unless you're actually being served by the owner. I would go again however just for the cool vibe. Nice place to unwind.

    Nice relaxed, cosy ambiance but found the tapas pricey for what you got. But service was friendly and drink prices mostly reasonable.

    Wonderful setting and great service. The food was very disappointing. If you advertise as a Tapas Bar I expect better quality and a far greater selection. If you are not a Tapas Bar advertise yourself as an Australian Style restaurant, unfortunately that’s all it was.

    What a lovely surprise! Great casual atmosphere and relaxed vibe with mix, match furniture. The food was great. My partner enjoyed the duck and I loved the lamb.

    We go here regularly as it is the perfect spot for lunch with a group, and we are always looked after so well. Great menu and service is always with a smile for the lovely staff.

    Went for lunch with a very picky friend. She did not have anything bad to say about the food, service or atmosphere.. thank goodness????. Small lunch selection but still a great variety. $2 house wine was tasty as well.

    Excellent Tapas, great taste, beautifully presented. Staff were super friendly & very efficient. There was no waiting, great choices. Will highly recommend this venue. We went there for a bite to eat after a movie & thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    Pleasant meal - lots of small and large tapas -lots of choice. Mains as well. Noisy but that was probably because of pre-Christmas celebrations. Helpful friendly staff.

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.
