The moody interiors create a speakeasy feel with southern charm, tucked below in the bunker for a cosy night out.

Homestyle eats like wings, fried chicken and burgers will warm you up from the inside out.

Corella (Braddon)

Newly opened on Lonsdale Street, Corella offers a Mod Oz menu heavy on Native Australian ingredients, with a long list of yummy cocktails which (despite the chilly weather) will be perfect for a winter dinner.

Ok, so it’s a little off the beaten track but once you get there, Grazing is well worth it. Request a seat in front of the fire to really stay snug and enjoy some of the region’s best cuisine.

INKA (City)

Canberra’s newest Peruvian/Japanese restaurant will not only be a beautiful escape from the wind and cold, but you’ll be able to grab a few snaps for the ‘gram.

Kynefin (Hall)

Take the drive out to the sleepy town of Hall and indulge in Kynefin’s crazy-popular picnic table menu option, which holds an array of delicious handmade bakery treats and mini drinks.

Meat and Wine Co. (City)

The Meat & Wine Co. is an Afro-centric steakhouse with a decidedly glamorous edge. The intimate cosy atmosphere pairs beautifully with a good glass of wine and an exceptionally flavoured tender steak.

Ondine (Deakin)

An unpretentious Euro-style brasserie dishing up real comfort food—think Gnocchi Parisienne, Beef Bourguignon with French Style Mash or Coq au Vin. The service is as warm as the space—a perfect cool-weather dining destination.
