About Rubicon Restaurant

Just south of Capital Hill lies Rubicon Restaurant, one of Canberra’s best kept secrets. The modest entrance secludes a warm, elegant space where soft candlelight and an enchanting rear atrium set the perfect mood for an afternoon or evening of gourmet dining. The same elegance appears on the plate with modern European dishes that taste as divine as they look. On the ever changing menu you might find Rock or Pacific oysters with rice wine, ginger & lime dressing for an entree followed by Pork fillet with pistachio armagnac prunes, caramelised fennel, potato Lyonnaise & peppercorn jus for the main. An outstanding wine list & friendly, attentive service complete one of Canberra’s finest dining experiences at Rubicon.

Great restaurant
Excellent food and wine list, lovely ambience and friendly staff.


We were delighted to enjoy flowers with Riesling, scallops with Tupelo, belly with Chardonnay, cheeks with Chianti and rib eye with Shiraz. A degustation prepared with such finesse and a memorable experience which will resonate for the rest of our winter


Of all the places I've dined, Rubicon has to be my absolute favourite. Despite being a busy night, my wife and I were made to feel like the only patrons in the restaurant. One of the main things that keeps us coming back is the menu. A lot of high level restaurants we've been to only have the one vegetarian option for entree/main. Rubicon has several, so my wife isn't restricted in what she can eat. Each dish we have tried has been a triumph. I was close to licking the plate, fearing that I might otherwise lose the memory of the flavours. Will definitely head back!
