Aubergine is an intimate space, with high ceilings, beautiful lights and simple, elegant decor which allows the product of creative and interesting food to shine. The food style is contemporary, however there is always a classic background to our ideas. The kitchen is supplied by local farmers and benchmark suppliers that understand that rather than we tell them what we need we prefer for them to tell us what produce is at its best on the day. In turn that means that our menu is updated daily. Our wine list has won numerous awards and has over 500 labels of interesting and classic wines. It shows the same philosophy of using local and smaller growers that produce interesting wines for us to get excited about.
Aubergine has received consistently positive press and reviews by the media including 2 SMH Chef Hats for the last five consecutive years. Last year Aubergine retained it’s 2 SMH Chef Hats, was listed in John Lethlean’s Hot 50 Restaurants and Gourmet Traveller’s top #100 restaurants and was also the only Canberra restaurant included in The Financial Review Australia’s Top Restaurants list.
