Food is outstanding. Service is not quite to the same level, but they are trying. Would definitely recommend dining here and we plan to dine here more frequently throughout 2021.

Birthday dinner with our son and his partner. Food was above expectations and the service was exemplary.
Our son inadvertently left behind his birthday gift and the staff rang me and advised that they had put it aside for safekeeping.

Food was amazing, service was wonderful. Everyone person that either brought out food for our table, cleared our plates or topped up our drinks were all so friendly and were always smiling. Couldn’t fault the night and we were quite happy to tip at the end.
We are from out of state and we’re supposed to be attending the big bash that night but were unable to go and this was where we came to catch up with a friend instead. Needless to say we were not disappointed with the night we had instead. Hats off to the team at Rebel Rebel, we will 100% be back again!

The whole process was great. They were able to change our booking last minute without fuss, and the service the whole meal was great.
Pricing a little on the higher side (particularly drinks) but not excessive. Will definitely be back here shortly!

Nice lunch - restaurant wasn't too busy but still fairly noisy. I can imagine it quite loud if full. Service very friendly and helpful. Vegetarian dishes were the stand outs.

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.

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.
