Parlour is a lovely spot for after-work drinks, a quick weekday lunch (great value) or a fancy dinner.

Love the big gin and oyster special. Menu interesting and beautifully executed!

This is a lovely venue let down by lack of service and staff who really don't want to be there. For example, wheeling a large bin through the restaurant; carting rubber matting through to the kitchen; dumping the wine on the table and never coming back to fill glasses the same with the water. Not surprised there weren't many there.

Service was very transactional, girls were just getting the job done and it wasn't really busy on Tuesday evening. Gnocchi were below average, sauce was too thin and watery. The interior and atmosphere, however, were very nice and the location is great, so maybe work on the improvement of the first two and it will become a great place.

Very nice eating space, parking one has to be lucky... food value (lunch special) including a glass of wine or beer unbeatable....

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.
