About Otis Dining Hall

Experience the taste of fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere at Otis Dining Hall, an establishment popular among a crowd of suave Kingston locals. Set on Jardine Street, Otis offers an ambient escape from the day-to-day with a moody setting fitted out in earthy brown hues, restored timber floorboards and an elegantly decorated ceiling of ceramic roses, illuminated by twinkling chandeliers. While toe-tapping to a backing track of The Beatles, peruse for a drop to drink from an extensive cocktail, beer and premium wine selection celebrating Australasian producers. Pair this with a mouth-watering classically re-invented dish, like Cowra lamb backstrap, tataki, labneh, purple haze carrot jam and ginger; or delve into roasted Hawkesbury duck breast, neck sausage, preserved cherries and beets.

Thank you
What captivates me about Otis extends beyond its exquisite cuisine, superb wine pairings, and excellent service – it's the way they embrace their guests like family. With each visit, I am greeted with a warm welcome, genuine enthusiasm for their offerings, and a steadfast commitment to delivering a beautiful dining experience. Returning to Otis is not just a choice; it's a joy I eagerly embrace, knowing that every moment spent there is infused with a sense of belonging and culinary delight.



Exceptional Fine Dining
An absolute institution of the Canberra Dining scene, OTIS delivers exceptional service, food and drink competing with the great 2 and 3 hot restaurants of Australia.


Great service
Was served by a very lovely blonde girl, her name was Sasha I believe. WOW, what an experience!


An experience to remember
Fantastic service, food and wine. Extremely knowledgeable staff and enjoyable atmosphere.


Amazing atmosphere along with great hospitality provided by the team. Pepper steak on the menu is my fav! Absolute stunner


The staff at Otis are amazing and thier food is outstanding
During the lockdown Damien has personally delivered dinner to a couple who had to cancel their wedding dinner. He laid it all out for them so they could have an amazing dinner at home. They have constantly had a huge focus on giving their diners the best experience possible in these trying times, I can only rate them extremely highly. During the brief period during lockdowns with limited dining space Damien and his stall enabled my wife and I to combine my Birthday and our anniversary dinner so we would no miss out. Defiantly Canberra's best restaurant :) :)


Delish !
We had booked pre lockdown but snapped up a dine at home. As yum as it would have been in their awesome atmosphere


Otis treats its guests like family
What I love about Otis is not only is food spectacular, the wine pairing amazing, and the service excellent - they treat their guests like family. Every time there is a warm welcome, so much enthusiasm for their products, and commitment to providing a beautiful dining experience. I love each visit and love going back.
