The all you can eat menu option at eightysix provides excellent value for money. Each course is distinct and the variety of dishes is sure to satisfy even the fussiest eaters. The servers are attentive and ensure that you're never waiting for long.

My only grumble is that the amazing lamb rack is no longer included in the all you can eat. Given how expensive it is on its own, this is perfectly understandable, just a little disappointing since I enjoyed it so much on my previous visit.

Last time I went, I tried my first Banoffee pie and was delighted by the taste and texture. A great way to end the meal. This time the base was quite thin and some crunchy sweets were sprinkled over it. Still delicious but not the same standard as before.

The wait staff was surly. Not all portions of our meal arrived, we had difficultly getting the attention of the surly wait staff to let them know. They were not at all apologetic. After that, we gave up on dessert because it took too long. The food was fine but not worth the poor attitude of the staff.

Eightysix is my favourite restaurant. All the meals are so delicious and the menu is always changing. The best part it's all you can eat per person which means you can order as much of the pumpkin agnolotti/tortolini as you want! Will always keep coming back when we can afford it.

By far one of the best meals I’ve had in Canberra. Everything was delicious, couldn’t fault it. Service was 10/10 as well. Highly recommend to everyone. Will definitely be back.

Great service on what was a very busy night. Good sized plates for my partner and I to share, 3 plates was more than enough!

86 is a fabulous restaurant with great food and an excellent vibe. I booked through Open Table, but on arrival my booking was not in the system. Luckily I had my booking confirmation and the friendly waiter found us a seat. Great night with top quality food, drink and service.

Quality of food, and portion sizes not as good as previous visits to this restaurant. Still good, but I don't think that we will rush back. Waitress spent more time talking to her mates than doing her job.

Thanks in part to the very attentive staff I was able to convince a Sydney-based client that they should move to Canberra.

The service was excellent! The restaurant was packed however my husband and I felt as though we were the only ones there. The attention to detail was out of this world!
We will be back again! Thank you for making our wedding anniversary so special.

The food was exceptionally good. The menu has a ‘share plate’ system, and the size of the plate increases with the price. But there is also an ‘all you can eat’ option, which means you can turn the menu into your own degustation. The size of the dishes is not adjusted with this option, so be careful not to order too much food. It was nice to have the option to have a little more before dessert.

I say again - the food was excellent. Service was also excellent, with the food coming quickly and drinks being regularly checked. I also appreciated the apology for the slight delay in one of the dishes arriving.

On a Thursday night the place was packed by 630pm, and it gets noisy, so it’s not the best for a quiet romantic meal. But I will definitely be coming back.

The food was excellent. We were advised to share meals, however the portion sizes were very small and a bit difficult to share among a group of four.

Service and food were outstanding.
Very noisy though.
An outside table would have suited us better being 50 and partially deaf
Will be back!!
