The rib eye beef is outstanding so make sure you order this. The prawns and croquettes were also amazing. Well worth a visit to our capital!

The food was yummy, a little pricey for what it is & we were rushed out due to seating & missed dessert. A little disappointed overall.

Disappointing - limited wine selection that didn't match the food. Front of house staff, with one exception, provided poor service. Food was pleasant enough but there's many better restaurants in Canberra.

Good ambience and service. Food was good but no wow factor. The zucchini was bland and croquettes were slightly reminiscent of a TV dinner. The lamb was very tasty and tender.

Not sure why it took us so long to go to Rebel Rebel but now that we have it will be my go to place whenever as it is so so good. The food is amazing so fresh and beautiful flavour combinations and the share plates are the best to try more of the gorgeous dishes on the menu. The service is friendly and knowledgeable. There is a great vibe going on in this place.

Great food and service. Wine suggestion at our request matched perfectly. Prompt and unobtrusive service . Delicious prawns and croquettes were a perfect starter before a shared lamb main paired with tomato and nectarine salad ( who would have thought?) rounded off our meal. A lovely night

Great and innovative food options, centrally located and a nice setting. Staff were attentive but not forthcoming with happiness to see us, and they don't offer large coffees which is a bummer. Lovely brunch option though - can highly recommend the breakfast shawarma!

Our first time at RR , we shared plates and kicked off with the Beef tartare and the grilled Prawns, both were lovely entrees, the prawns outstanding.We followed up with the Blue mackerel with smoked yogurt along with a side of tomato and nectarine, with advice we selected the 2015 Domain du Mas GSM which was a perfect companion , and moved on to the Grass fed rib eye with the side of chips, the rib eye done perfectly and served hot , excellent.Service on the nite was seemless and not overdone, we will certainly return !!

Food amazing, wait staff great - really professional & friendly & helpful. I accidentally booked a table for 2 when I needed 3 & they managed a solution to my mistake with grace & good humour. Menu looks intimidating, but everything was just so good.

Loved it!! Delicious food, great cocktails. Just thought the bright white lights from the street outside interfered with the ambience. Perhaps a curtain could help with that. Still
Highly recommend.

My mum and I went to dinner at Rebel Rebel on Monday evening and it was awesome. We were visiting Canberra for a day and wanted a lovely dining experience with fab food and great service. It was all spot on, we had the tuna and corn croqueta to start, followed by the mackerel and cabbage accompanied by fries. These were all recommended by the super cute waiter and we loved it all.
We drank sparkling water and a Pecorino (which I mistakenly thought was only a cheese) so not only was it yum, we also learnt something new.

Fun atmosphere, absolutely value for money - coming from Sydney I expected to pay a lot more for the quality of the food and service. TOTALLY recommend 😀

We went to Rebel Rebel for my husband's birthday. We were looked after very well. Great recommendations for both food and drinks (Matching wines). The balance of flavours was incredible, along with an imaginative menu with dishes that I have not experienced before. The service was attentive, friendly and relaxed. We felt very welcomed. My only recommendation (apart from the Tuna Watermellon dish), would be to take a later seating, as we could only get in early and felt a little rushed to be out by the set time. We would have stayed all night if we could!

Superb variety of food available as shared plates, the eggplant with Nduja and almonds was a standout and the lamb rump accompanied it perfectly. Everything was cooked beautifully and the service was quiet, considered and efficient. We would have loved to see a few more choices of wine by the glass, but the wines we selected were excellent nonetheless.

We enjoyed our night, food was well presented and tasty- it s all share plate ( personally I hate share plate) all dishes were well balanced 4 people you need 5-6 dishes and 2 sides. A couple of us had a cocktail and they were well mixed and presented. Wine $$ but good selection. Service was casual but attentive. Chairs basic could do with a cushion and they could splash out on some art - Very close to the art school - get an original!
