“Delicious fine dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Great food, excellent service and lovely wines. It's the normal price for the quality and for us only for special occasions but we were not disappointed! Every course was wonderful.

“Too many authentic tastes for one night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

We dine here last night, some of the foods were among the best I had, e.g. venison and pork belly. Not a big fan of french cuisine, but you can't resist all those authentic tastes and exquisite presentation. Choose your favorite wine from the comprehensive list and make it a night full of unforgettable tastes.

“absolutely sensational”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Courgette is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to!! The food was exceptional - lots of interesting flavours and brilliantly presented. The four courses for $80 is oustanding value. The size of the meals is perfect - you leave feeling satisfied without being bloated. The service was good, and the wine list extensive offering a great range of wines for any budget.
I would recommend Courgette to anyone looking for a world class restaurant at a reasonable price.
Fantastic!!

“Excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Went on 27 April 2013. Definitely worth the price for the superb level of service at Courgette. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive, and thankfully not snobbish at all (unlike many other "highly ranked" restaurants), given the atmosphere and ambiance of the restaurant. Hats off to the staff who served us, we definitely appreciated it!

The food was well-presented, I especially enjoyed the entree and dessert "Salad of Alaskan king crab, avocado, tomato jelly, lime mayonnaise, baby basil" & "chocolate jaffa - ganache, orange, bitter caramel, crisp tuille" - amazingly decadent flavours. Thank you Courgette, for such a wonderful meal.

“This place never fails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2013

Went here again and had the best meal ever. I had the snowy river rainbow trout and my wife had the Courgette blossom. They were so tasty! Then We had the Venison and quail terrine, both were stunning in presentation and taste. We then had Duck breast and salmon. As well as duck breast I also received some confit leg (heavenly). The salmon was also a winner too, wrapped in brick pasty and pan fried it was unique in preparation. Dessert was delicious, We shared the Chocolate Jaffa and Cheese. All I can say is have the cheese and share a dessert, it's the best of both worlds. The wine list is also just as impressive. It's definitely the best in Canberra with seriously cool varieties by the glass and amazing rare bottles for that special occasion. Go to this place!
