I had dinner here with my mother who was visiting from Sydney. We loved the atmosphere and we're looking forward to a delicious dinner. It took a while for anyone to notice us, and when they did they couldn't find my booking. Fortunately it wasn't a busy night so we got a table. Both our entrees were very ordinary -... More

Decided to have lunch with my wife, we were going to have three courses but stopped after two. Garlic and herb bread arrived still frozen. Staff apologetic. Took further 15 for this to be replaced. Steaks arrived and were less than warm and wife's had wrong sauce on it. There was also no seasonable vegetables as advertised. Vegetables came very... More

Our waitress was very amusing and helpful. There was a good selection of food but would have preferred more Marlborough sauvignon blanc on the wine list. For 6 people including drinks (most not drinking alcohol) our bill was about $440. We all had desserts but only my husband ordered an entree but we did have breads and olives.

When dining solo one evening recently at Chifley's, I had requested a table near a corner area. Unfortunately, I was not aware that on a rather chilly evening, the door leading through to a passageway near me would be left open. Whilst the meal was delicious, the draught and general lack of a cosy warm dining room detracted somewhat from... More

Husband and I dined here one evening during our stay at Hotel Kurrajong. The table service was excellent, the young waitress very pleasant. The wine list extensive, but house wines are available by the glass. We were very happy with the menu. I chose the onion and goat chees tartlet ( pastry light and flaky, filling delicious) and slow cooked... More

For those staying at the Kurrajong Hotel in Canberra there is no need to go out into the winter night. Chifley's Bar and Grill serves very good mainstream and reasonably priced food. Service is efficient. The wine list is well-priced. Breakfast next morning was a touch chilly without the braziers.

We arrived at booked time and were shown to our seats. Drinks and food orders were taken within minutes. Drinks were served. Ordered garlic bread was delivered within 10 minutes-albeit to another table but we waited almost an hour before anything else. My husband stopped one of the many waiters asking for another drink and enquiring about our main courses.... More
