During our three night stay at the Hotel Kurrajong we had three breakfasts, two lunches and two dinners at Chifley's Bar & Grill with friends and family. The service was efficient and friendly on each occasion. Breakfast was a buffet style but you could also order different hot dishes. Plates and drinks were replenished regularly - cost was $28 for...

All set in a terrific hotel. Best value in Canberra if you feel you would like to get away from the rat race. Again a step back in time.

Staying at the Hotel Kurrajong again for 2 nights and had one dinner here and 2 breakfasts. Dining room is very nice and classy, service was good and the food delicious.. We had the mixed grill for 2 for dinner, just enough along with the bread starter. Comes out on a board with chicken, steaks, bacon and lamb along with... More

Food was excellent although I am not sure the "400"g steak was 400gs. It was good though. Good well priced wine list. Wait staff very friendly and helpful.

The dishes are innovative and delicious, and very well portioned. The restaurant has inside and outside dining and is a lovely spot. Extensive selection of whisky is available.

My partner and I went for dinner as the reviews seemed generally very good regarding the food. We sat outside on the terrace and were surprised with how casual that area was. No tableclothes or anything so no need to dress up if you're sitting outside. The staff were quite attentive as soon as we sat down. The garlic bread... More

We stayed at the Hotel Kurrajong and had dinner in the Chifley's Bar and Grill on a Friday night. The restaurant was busy and the service was a little bit slow. Most of the waiting staff appeared to be young and inexperienced, but were enthusiastic in doing their best to please. As you expect from the name, the emphasis on... More

We, my wife and I, had been to the restaurant before and we had a great experience - great food and good service. Then on the 2nd of December 6 of us, friends, went to celebrate Christmas on our recommendation. Again the food was great, but the service was appalling. To begin with when we arrived, two staff members who... More

This is a really nice place to sit down and have a drink, or dinner, or snacks. Four of us sat down for an afternoon drink, and ended up having dinner from the bar menu, finishing with dessert about 9pm. The food was excellent, from the bar snacks to the restaurant items. I would have given the place 5 stars,... More
