15 new places to eat and drink in Canberra

Posted on

Canberra is breathing a collective sigh now that we can go back to one of our favourite pastimes: eating out.

To celebrate we’ve found some of the newest restaurants, cafés and bars across Canberra (including some that aren’t even open yet!) so you can start to plan your foodie adventures.

Just remember to book a table or to be prepared to grab some takeaway—it’ll be a while before venues are back to full capacity.

Table by Canberra Gourmet 

It may not be new, but it has swanky new digs. With a new home located in the heart of the Truffle Farm, a six-course degustation never sounded so good. Make sure to get in quick to book a ticket for the next available tables in November, so you can enjoy being surrounded by the rolling hills of Majura.

What better way to celebrate the easing of restrictions than a bevvy at Canberra’s newest cocktail bar? Opening its doors on Friday 15 October, 5th Avenue is located in the historic Sydney building and has a tempting cocktail and food menu that will leave you wanting more. Make sure to make a reservation and celebrate in style.

Barely able to open before lockdown shut its doors, Loquita promises “experimental and elevated Mexican flavours with a strong emphasis on mezcal and tequila”. With a menu brought to life by native ingredients that focus on the distinctive flavours of Mexico’s vibrant regions, including an extensive range of mezcal tequila, Mexican beers and sangria that are the perfect companion to  tacqueria-style food and a name that literally translates to ‘crazy’ (or so Google Translate tells us—our Spanish is no buena), we’re excited to see what’s in store.

There’s a new burger joint in town! Burger Villains is taking to the skies and partnering with Wing to bring Air Villains to Gungahlin. While they’re hoping to expand this service soon, Wing is restricted to lunch only for the following suburbs: Crace, Harrison, Franklin and Mitchell. With a Woden store in Chaseling Street and a Belconnen store at the Page Shops on the way as well, get ready to treat your taste buds.
