Canberra - Suggestions for Saturday & Sunday night dinner, please

Jump to last reply

Off to Canberra for the Ballets Russes this weekend and would like to find somewhere good for Saturday & Sunday night dinners. Problem is, most of the restaurants I know or have read about are closed Sunday nights. Have pencilled in Waters Edge, but wondered whether you might have a better/ more interesting suggestion.

Cuisine: Anything goes, although preferably not Chinese. Too close to Chinese New Year's excesses - and to our late friend, Neil Oz's favourite, Ruby, where I had a lovely night with him & Robyn last year.

Ideally, we'd like somewhere with interesting food and a winelist with a good variety of local wines by the glass. After a couple of days gallery walking, I'd rather not have to queue for an hour or find there's no table at the inn, so it would be good to be able to book.

Staying in Forrest, but will have car & driver (great joy to have a teetotaller in the party), so location is open.

Saturday night: Thinking about Boathouse by the Lake; Ginger Room at Old Parliament House. Haven't been to either, but locations & menus look interesting. Very open to anything more casual, so if your favourite is a hole-in-the wall, please suggest it.

Many thanks all
