Dining Out in Canberra

Here are just a few places that I have dined out in the last week or so.

Alto Restaurant - Black Mountain Tower

Polenta and crisp egg coated crab, lime chilli and garlic dressing, served with a mango and leek salad

Twice cooked black truffle and gruyere souffle

Grilled beef loin, chatel mustard and white truffle crust, petit pomme, celeriac and double cream puree, autumn vegetable melange

White chocolate and pistachio Bavarian, caramelised pear, glass biscuit and passionfruit coulis

Pan seared QLD scallops and pea puree, potato crisps, bacon and tomato vinaigrette

Dark chocolate souffle, poached black cherries, fennel and all spice ice cream

Aubergine Restaurant - Grifffith Shops

Trout tartare, Oyster vichyssoise, avruga caviar, fennel salad

Sauté of sand whiting, chorizo, south coast squid, smoked rice

Can't quite remember this one, but I do know it consisted of duck breast, duck sausage, potato tartine, pate and spring vegetables

Fillet of baby barramundi, kataifi wrapped prawn, sweet corn purée, bourride


  1. I love Aubergine, but not that impressed by Alto restaurant. Found it very overpriced for what you get.
