Great service and food, relaxed atmosphere, great night (but not for those looking for a quiet dinner, very popular and vibrant restaurant).

The shared plates are amazing. Have been twice so far and the quality is consistent. The service if very attentive without being overbearing and knowledgeable about the food and wine list.

The atmosphere has a good feeling of hustle and bustle without being invasive, you can hear your table and don't need to fear your conversations floating as the spacing seems set up for white noise.

Great service and good food. There are a few vegetarian options but they are flexible to change a dish to accommodate different requirements.
Wonderful shaken iced latte.

This would have to be the best restaurant in Canberra.
Food is superb and the staff give you space whilst being attentive. An absolute pleasure!

The food was great, with generous portions, but we felt way too rushed on NYE. A smaller/shorter menu would have had us feeling just as sated but more relaxed. Having said that, we will definitely come again!

We arrived in Canberra and dined at Rebel Rebel that night. We left the food selection to the restaurant and loved all of it. Didn’t like the backless chairs, but the food and service made up for it. We had to return to Victoria the next day due to imminent border closures, but voted the trip was worth it for this meal! Thank you.

Owner & Chef Sean is most probably the best talent Canberra has ever seen in 15 years. Understated seasonal and skilled menu very rare to find in today's Canberra's dining scene. Well done team!

Excellent night out. Enjoyed all the food, tuna and watermelon salad was our favourite. ‘Energetic’ noise level did make it a bit hard to hear everyone at the table.

Cannot rate Rebel Rebel highly enough. End recent visit in 3 months and everything from beginning to end make this a truly special place to eat. Everything is just 5 star! Highly recommend the oysters with horseradish and beetroot!

Food was delicious and interesting, service was a little slow and a dish we ordered was forgotten but the staff was all very friendly and professional. We were very impressed by the flavours and found each dish we ordered quite unique and well balanced.

The food was outstanding and a comprehensive wine list. Minor issue was that despite being fully staffed and few customers it was difficult to get the attention of a waiter.
Highly recommend it for an exquisite culinary experience.

Fantastic food as usual and the service was excellent. The only issue that we have is the sound level in the restaurant. There are few/no soft surfaces and it is really difficult to hear the conversation in our group of five. We would go there again just because the food is excellent.

Rebel Rebel works on the share plate concept. This provided us with a great opportunity to sample a wide range of the tasty food on offer. Everything we had was excellent. Great flavours and good sized portions. The staff are incredible helpful and happy. I will definitely be going back!

We were a group of 5 who had a lot of catching up to do. The service was great as we just asked for recommendations and went with that. The arrival of the food was well timed and we all agreed it was delicious. The only negative would be the noise level!

Enjoyed a night out at Rebel Rebel for a friend’s birthday.

We all loved the kingfish starter but every dish we ordered was delicious!
