From the outset the little restaurant looks lovely and quaint from the outside and does not disappoint when entering. The restaurant has an awesome ambience and on a freezing winters night the fireplace and decore of the place did not disappoint. The staff were friendly...More

My husband and I went to Green Herring this evening on a date night while visiting Canberra. While the restaurant itself is cosy and historic, the food was terrible. We had the prawns for entree, they were overcooked and the sauce was lackluster. I had...More

Tucked away in an unprepossessing 1860's off-street slab hut is a hidden gem. The warmth of the huge open fire on entry reflects the total atmosphere. The structure of the building absorbs sound instead of echoing so background noise is minimal making conversation comfortable. The...More

For an intimate setting with great character and superb food, one simply can't do better than this. The meals, service and ambiance were all perfect, with exceptional attention to detail. We were welcomed and charmed, but never bothered. I asked for my steak to be...More

It's not 'fine dining' and doesn't pretend to be. It presents as a good mid range restaurant and they do it very well. Decor is a traditional old world aussie farm cottage. Oozes character and provides a great ambience. Service is excellent and hard to...More
