Truly wonderful food and service to match. My partner and I have both eaten at some very highly rated restaurants, particularly in the Canberra region, and at Aubergine had the best meal of our lives. Can not wait to go back.

Had degustation at $110pp. You get a trio of bite sized entrees, 4 light mains and dessert so it's good value. All my favourites here: duck, pork, wagyu, sashimi. I have to say even the john dory was really nice. Make sure you have a good appetite when you go, as I was struggling to finish all the dishes. They... More

The staff were attentive and knowledgeable without being overbearing. The restaurant itself had a wonderful ambience....not loud, even though they were busy. And for those wine connoisseur's, their wine list is... More

Located conveniently in Griffith, there is ample street parking. Booking and service were as you would expect. Courteous, professional and efficient. An online reservation via OpenTable and email...

Our Anniversary dinner for family of 5 was a great experience. The $90 per head four course meal (actually five as the chef's specialty vol au vent is complimentary) is good value and excellent quality and flavours. The bread is even worthy of a special mention, as it was commented on by all of us. Delicious. As extensive a wine... More

We visited for a birthday dinner and we weren't disappointed. Four course with standard wine pairing + 2 glasses of bubbles, just over $300. Excellent service, prompt friendly and very informative from both the waiting staff and the sommelier. Food was of course outstanding. Great flavours and beautifully presented. Some different flavour experiences and some unique wine options (like the... More

Beautiful venue, where innovative, modern and delicious food is served by knowledgeable and attentive, but unobtrusive, waiting staff. The sommelier was outstanding!
