Private sit down capacity 50.
The food tasted great, with the exception of fried chicken, which was just average. However, it was very loud and my partner and I could barely hear each other. Value for money was also lacking - what was described as share plates and priced accordingly, in reality came to the table as tiny portions barely large enough for one person. Perhaps, the tasting menu would have been a better choice. Service was ok.
Had a lovely time thank you!! We don't go out that often as enjoy cooking at home, and its great when you get food to try and you don't cook at home!! We will be back Kim
Overall great meal/service/ambience/wine list. Worth every a visit.
Just fantastic venue and amazing staff. This place is a definite for great good and setvice
The food and service is always consistent. We have never been disappointed or left hungry.
Great food. They didn't have a table waiting so we had to have a drink at the bar (which we were charged for in the end). Overall the food was very nice.
Third time at 86 and still as brilliant as the first. On this occasion we did the feed me menu and we able to slightly modify to suit our preferences.
Every dish was fantastic and there was more food than we could eat (but not by much).
Fabulous service and everything was delicious. We had the tasting menu and was very pleased.
Delicious food and wine and an interesting eclectic menu
Incredible food as always, beautiful wine, great vibe, never disapoints.
I’ve eaten here several times and am never disappointed. Great food in a relaxed, buzzy place with good service. Highly recommend.
Absolutely LOVED Eighty6. We were in Canberra for the weekend from Sydney and so happy that Eighty6 was recommended to us. Food was absolutely delicious and plentiful generous servings (we got the set menu and were not disappointed). The team were friendly, personable, attentive and knew their stuff. The music was awesome (old school R&B) and the buzz and energy matched the food. Loved it and will be back!!!
Had an awesome time, but we had to wait for our table, and the table we were seated at was set oddly for 5 people.
In saying that the service was amazing and the food was great! I'd come back in a heart beat.
Brilliant as usual. Pork belly was amazing and tortellini the best dish as usual.
Disappointing to wait for a table for 15 minutes despite making a reservation but service was attentive and food delicious!
It was a birthday dinner. We enjoyed the tasting menu, though we're not sure why they only offered two desserts for the three of us.
Our only complaints are that the predinner drinks came quite slowly, so we already had food by the time we got them.
We hadn't been for a while, however it won't be so long between visits this time.
Awesome customer service, great atmosphere and excellent food/wine.
All around great, will tell all my friends and be back again 😊
Birthday and Fathers Day
For someone who didn’t understand what some of the food on the menu was, everything I ordered was unreal. Will definitely be coming back. Friendly staff too! Can’t rate it - sooo good
The food was delicious but the device was abrupt and dismissive. The whole tasting plate was incredibly rushed.
It really is the best menu in town. Great to see the old favorites - duck buns, habanero steak tartare, and pumpkin tortellini still on the menu. All still being made to absolute perfection. We also loved the potato scallops and the raw salmon with blood orange. Terrific risotto.
Service was great as always - food brought out promptly and with a smile but never making us feel rushed.
This restaurant has a very lively and friendly atmosphere. We went on a Monday night and was surprised to find it to be quite busy, it must be a popular dining choice among the locals. We picked the counter seats and enjoyed overlooking what happens in the kitchen.
Fantastic food and service. I have been back a number of times and it is always to a very high standard. Highly recommended.
Love this place. My favourite in Canberra. Food delicious, vibe really fun, cocktails and wine list fab!
Very noise and wait staff were inattentive. Food was great.
The food was delicious had the tasting menu and it was a substantial amount of food cannot fault any of the dishes. The staff were very accommodating to my girlfriends dietary requirements and change the menu for her benefit and that banoffee pie was the most delicious dessert I have had in a long time!
My favourite restaurant in Canberra, never disappoints with a great atmosphere!
Fantastic food best I’ve had in Canberra in fact best food in Sydney too. The waiters were pleasant and attentive. Just love this place. Would go there again in a minute.
Great night out to celebrate a birthday. Share plates with great food was the ideal way to please everyone and experience the food on offer.
The food was creative and really good. I ate at the counter and chatted with the chefs who were all really friendly.
They have an ‘all you can eat’ option which I ended up with. Basically I chose from the A la carte menu and when I hit the ‘all you can eat’ limit they stopped charging me. Fantastic!
Eighty Six is one of my favourites in Canberra. It never disappoints!
Over-priced, greedy and indifferent to the perspective of the patron.
Amazing dinner. Well taken care of by staff from the point of reservation onwards. Fantastic food
Very nice service, great food and nice to serve the cake that was self bought for desser (no cackage :))
Food was great, unfortunately there was a large group next to us that were very loud and appeared drunk. This was a bit frustrating when celebrating my wife's birthday
Amazing as always!!! Thank you for the great food and fun service!
86 has a fantastic menu with inventive and extremely well prepared food.
Some other reviews call our small servings but it just isn’t the case. The servings are perfect for you to enjoy some of each dish and not overdo it.
Service staff were excellent: very knowledgable of each dish, friendly and attentive (but not cloying).
We found it very good value for money and enjoyed our experience.
It would be great to have a wind break from the cold if you’re near the door. Either a nib wall or request a seat away from the door?
Amazing food with good service.
My only criticism is that it was hard to get a waiter to help us when we had no plates on our table.. but they were very busy!
Worth the drive 😍
Over priced in my view. Food v good but at well over 100 per head very expensive for what we got
