We are in Canberra on a very short break and after visiting here tonight have started the discussion about how we will make the time to visit again!

A hike up some skinny, steep stairs (blink & you’ll miss the entry!) to an eclectic collection of retro vibes and spaces.

Fabulous wine list, relaxed yet attentive staff, and the best part is the munchies! All we ordered was the pork terrine and sour dough with cultured butter and OMG GIVE ME MORE!

Such reasonable pricing, you can just add to the morsels as your tummy needs, and sit with a great wine in relaxed surrounds.

Canberra, you should be so happy to have this place as yours, if we lived here we’d climb these stairs all the time!

Good meeting place after work to have a glass of wine and sit by the fire. Haven’t eaten here but the atmosphere is lovely :)

visited with friends from Sydney who were unexpectedly surprised with the outstanding marinated snapper with orange oil, delicious pork terrine and accompaniments (better than I tasted in the five years living in France), and the wonderful potato galette. Had great table by the window, nice music - great place to go before the theatre.

Bar Rochford looked after us so well, extremely attentive staff who made us feel really welcome and relaxed. The manager Nick did everything he could to ensure our experience was pleasant and even gave us a drink on the house for returning. I would 10/10 reccomend Rochford, specifically their espresso martinis!

This is the jewel in Canberra’s restaurant scene. Art Deco styling enhances the atmosphere with open fires, eclectic seating and fabulous food and service. Professional and attentive staff make great recommendations for the undecided and seem to never get it wrong. Even had an old school DJ with vinyl mixing deck and great music selection. Definitely comparable to the best bars on the planet, Rockford is a true gem.
