Aubergine is an intimate space, with high ceilings, beautiful lights and simple, elegant decor which allows the product of creative and interesting food to shine. The food style is contemporary, however there is always a classic background to our ideas. The kitchen is supplied by local farmers and benchmark suppliers that understand that rather than we tell them what we need we prefer for them to tell us what produce is at its best on the day. In turn that means that our menu is updated daily. Our wine list has won numerous awards and has over 500 labels of interesting and classic wines. It shows the same philosophy of using local and smaller growers that produce interesting wines for us to get excited about.

Aubergine Ratings and Reviews
We celebrated the sale of our home with a dinner at Aubergine. We treated to an evening of wonderful food, great wine and unparalleled service. Each meal was well balanced, driven by flavour. Service is intuitive, friendly and professional. The sommelier and wine selection is outstanding and a key feature. We can't wait for our next visit.
Our evening was a most enjoyable experience, as we eat out so rarely at this level. The food was amazing, but the choice of dishes was sometimes a compromise between the main ingredient and the accompanying vegetable and sauces. For example, we were nervous about the possible affects of Jerusalem artichokes and lentils, which came with the steak, and so opted for something else. In hindsight, we would have been fine with the steak. My wife found her silver dory the least enjoyable part of the meal. My lamb was faultless.
It would have been nice to have come away with a printed list of the wines we were served rather than having to rely on memory and a scribbled note. They were delicious and well chosen for us. The service was absolutely first class.
Great food but with its open area it's a very loud restaurant and you need to raise your voice to be heard. The set menu delivery times were a bit odd as there was a long wait for one course and then the others came in very quickly.
A good experience overall
Went to Aubergine for a date night. Very attentive service and food was excellent. Although menu selection was small, all of the choices seemed sumptuous. The canapés presented prior to the start of the meal were a nice surprise. The seating was a bit cramped and therefore the large amount of people in the small space made it a bit too hot and noisy for our liking. That being said I would 100% recommend it if you are in Canberra and looking for a special meal.
Went for our 1st wedding anniversary, the service was wonderful and the food phenomenal, a real treat.
The only down side it is pricey but worth the experience especially if you are a food lover.
Thank you to the chefs and staff for a great time keep it up ^^
Definitely the best restaurant in Canberra. Food was great, staff were friendly, professional and took pride in what they were doing.
I'll definitely come back. The only criticism (very very minor) is that we were sitting near the entrance which meant that every time people went in and out, we were feeling cold. But overall, great place!!!
It was a really enjoyable experience, not just about going out for a meal. We had so much fun enjoying the taste pairings of food and wine. The sommelier made excellent choices and was so interesting and informative, truly passionate. We will definitely return for more mouthwatering adventures!
The all black colour scheme with ceiling spot lights is a bit harsh, softer lighting at table/head level would make it warmer and more inviting, though we appreciate that this is very much a matter of personal taste.
Delicious food and an especially knowledgeable and helpful Sommelier helped make this occasion special. We could have done without the constant interruptions by a member of the wait staff asking us if our current course was good though. The temperature in the restaurant was chilly (but we are from Queensland!) but warmed up as the restaurant filled.
