We checked out Courgette because it topped the list of restaurants in Canberra and it did not disappoint. Since my wife recently became a vegetarian, one of the main draws for Courgette is that its prix fixe menu include vegetarian options for all four courses.

Canberra isn't the place you'd expect a truly world-class dining experience, but that's exactly what Courgette offers. Having holidayed in Australia recently, I was so surprised - and pleased - to find Courgette. I'm a vegetarian and wasn't sure that the (reasonably priced) four-course degustation menu would have much that would be suitable for me, however, I could not have... More

This would have to rate as one of the best restaurant meals I have ever had - and I've eaten in some amazing restaurants. The venue itself is nothing spectacular, at least not from the outside.

We ate here last year when visiting Canberra and loved it. As we were in the Berra again we went back to Courgette. It didn't disappoint. The food is fabulous and excellent value. The service is attentive and friendly. There is nothing I don't like about this restaurant. We'll be back.

Fabulous place for a special occassion. Food choices well balanced and limited choices make for easier selection. Food in season seems to be a priority. Wine list splendid.

Good meals and better wine! :) Would recommend for special occasions and romantic dinners. Definitely get a wine from the extensive list. A place for the finer things in life and on a plate. The service is the best I have ever had!
