An impromptu dinner was surpsingly very good - the lamb cutlets were superb. Would be good to see rose by the glass.

Located inside ANU's Univeristy House Boffins has been a reliable go-to for a lovely dining experience. The two-course plus wine available to members offers a range to suit all, vegetarian, seafood and meat options. The salmon entree and barramundi main were perfectly cooked, full of...More
I have been coming to Boffins on and off for forty years, that is before it became Boffins. Like other reviewers I much prefer a booth. The lunch special menu has always been varied to enough to cope with those on diets, but this time...More
We went on a quiet Saturday night. Requested a booth and got it. For entrees, we ordered the Spinach and Potato soup and the scallops. Both were good portions and tasty. For mains, I had the kangaroo. It was most delicious, one of the best...More

Nice booth in the corner on a quiet night. Greatly enjoyed Barramundi and Scallops. Fresh, tasty salad. Wine by the glass.
Hi Ozeastcoaster, thank you for the great feedback, I will pass this on this onto our team who will be very glad to hear it. Hope to see you again soon.
The last year has been a disaster for this restaurant. The menu now parodies Courgette's exquisite multiple courses with choices, but the food is tasteless. The service is haphazard. Friendly? Maybe, if you get a student who is working his/her way through ANU. The wine...More

My husband booked a "quiet table for two" and when we arrived they just said to sit anywhere that was vacant. We sat at a table that was quietish but got blasted by the air conditioner coming on freezing cold every 30 minutes. A bad...More

Good food, wine by the glass but not too much ambience. Convenient if you are staying at University House.More
Thank you! We are very happy you enjoyed your visit. A lot of our customers enjoy the quiet and tranquil ambience that Boffins has to offer compared to other venues, however, we understand and appreciate that this style is not to everyone's taste. I will...More
I treated myself to dinner here and enjoyed delicious medium rare eye fillet (I needed some greens with it so a side of beans and pancetta was in order) and a tasty citrus tart for dessert. Unfortunately when dining alone separate sides does make the...More
Thank you Cassie! We are very happy you enjoyed your visit and look forward to welcoming you back in the future. I will pass on your comments to the team.
We made a booking day prior to our visit, friends were looking for somewhere that they had not been previously. On arrival we had to work through a large group who were dining in the Great Hall to get to Boffins door. Our greeter was...More
