The food was exceptional - particularly the corn croquets - and the chocolate mouse desert was a real surprise. I found the room noisy but with a real buzz, but it did make it difficult to talk to our guests across the table. The staff were well informed and very pleasant, but difficult to catch their eye when something extra was needed, ie milk for tea at the end of the meal.
Overall a great experience

Fabulous and carefully thought out food, service that is just right, a balanced wine list with some familiar favourites and a handful of interesting international wines available by the glass. A great casual, quality dining experience, and very reasonably priced.

Wonderful tasty food and seriously good staff. Strongly suggest choosing lots of the smaller plates and finishing off with one shared main. We loved this restaurant so much we ate here 2 of our 3 nights in Canberra. Beef tartare was a standout but everything was good.

Food was delicious. Atmosphere was nice and lively. Service was great as well. I had the Beef Tartare, which tasted excellent. I went to dinner with visiting family and had a great evening. I'll be back.

Amazing food and service. The $70 chefs choice option certainly delivers with a lot of delicious food - over delivers. Lots of attentive but not over the top service. Great wine list with well priced, interesting wines from around the world.

Out of the food. Raw fish 1, asparagus 2, duck 3, croquettes 4. A long way 5th aubergine. Too stodgy nothing to lift or bring alive the flavour.

A relaxing and inspiring adventure awaits when you visit Rebel Rebel. Fantastic and delicious menu and first class service from knowledgeable floor staff. Great drinks menu too. We returned for a second night to sample more of the dessert menu, especially the ice cream sanga! Beautiful space and friendly vibe, encourages you to drop in any time either for a quick bite and drink or a leisurely meal.

What an exceptional evening. Thank you so much Rebel Rebel for the beautiful dining experience.

The customer service was friendly, informative and so genuine and the food was phenomenal.

The kingfish, blood orange, fennel and dried olive was light and bright and delicious!

My favourite was the Stracciatella with hazelnuts, thyme and burnt butter - I could eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Sweets were also amazing, the Sunflower ice cream sanga and rhubarb cardamon cake! YES!

And a special shout out to the bar tender who made me a delicious non alcoholic citrus based cocktail with the same amount of consideration given to the diner not drinking that night as to the drinkers.

THE BEST! Thank you

Great food - modern, inventive and elegant. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because of the serving sizes. Both of the $30+ large plates we ordered were really not that sharable.

My friend is vegetarian and there was plenty of choice. We decided that next time she will only have one glass of wine and we may cut back on the mains in order to leave room for the desert which I managed - it was a sort of death by chocolate and I'm still trying to work it off.
