Went to to Corella for a birthday dinner which is a set menu on Friday & Saturday’s. The set menu is $90pp, which definitely is on the upper range for Canberra. They offer a number of sides which were all delicious. I especially liked the chicken liver parfait which was crispy and velvety smooth. For mains there were 3 choices, so we opted for a double serving of hanger steak for our party size. The mains were all delicious however the portions were too small. The beans (which should’ve been brocollini according to the menu) were cooked just right and had a nice XO like flavour. The dessert was also quite well balanced. The staff were friendly and quite professional but could’ve been more attentive. I did like the cozy modern vibes of the restaurant and might be back when the menu changes. See less

First time at Corella on Friday evening, the carpaccio and the steak were superb, staff were excellent. Really enjoyed the set menu and range of dishes. Just a great night all round. Will definitely back for another set menu and to try the cocktails! See less

Good food let down by abysmal service and lack of care. Food is delicious and serving size is generous for the type of experience they’re aiming for. Chicken liver is superb though would have like the brioche to be slightly warm when served. Suggest you cut up the pickled japapenos as when eaten whole they can overwhelm the delicate flavours of the kingfish. This great start to the night quickly fell apart as after our starters, the head waiter greeted a party of around 7 guys – his inebriated mates; and sat them down on a long table in the centre. A little context – the restaurant is tiny, so the guests only had around 1m separation between the tables. What followed for the next one and a half hours were shouting, glass banging and general boisterous disregard for the experiences of the other patrons which quickly ruined the evening. A couple next to us asked eventually asked to be moved while another couple left after before their starters even arrived. The 6 waiters seem to be oblivious to all of this along with our empty wine glasses as they busied themselves with serving their noisy mates. We were eventually asked if we wanted more wine - halfway through our mains while it wasn’t until dessert that we were finally asked if we wanted to move outside. At this pointed all we wanted to do was to finish our dessert as quickly as we can and get out of there. The final letdown was when paying for the bill, the head waiter, the bald man with the beard, didn’t even inquire to how our meal was – simply charged us and that was it… All quite a shame as the food is good and reasonably priced for the experience – the service is however horrendous so unfortunately cannot recommend.

We had a delicious and relaxing time at Corella last Saturday night. The set menu ($90) was excellent value and we thorough enjoyed every dish. The service was spot on. Attentive but not intrusive. We’ll be back! See less

Outstanding. Balance, flavour, atmosphere and consistently great service. Having sampled many fine dining experiences Canberra has to offer - tonight was an overwhelmingly refreshing experience. Well done and thank you!!! See less

When not particularly happy with a nearby cafe that was considered one of the best in Braddon, some friends and I thought Corella looked clean and modern and we were fortunate enough to get a table for 3 inside. The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating and quite an extensive bar which included some well known Australian spirits. I tried the ‘native negroni’ which was interesting (I still prefer the classic) and we all had a delicious stuffed zucchini flower each and 2 bowls of scrumptious fries. The staff were very polite and friendly. I am looking forward to going back for a more substantial meal. 🍹😊 See less

We dined in on Valentine’s Day, and much to our delight enjoyed absolutely everything. The food was beautiful, the atmosphere fantastic and the wine was outstanding. Corella’s set menus provide excellent value and their customer service is fantastic. Definitely visiting again. See less

Excellent food and service. It was no trouble to cater for a vegan. They had on hand a vegan degustation menu which we enjoyed. From start to finish the food was delicious, and highlighted some of our Australian bush foods. See less

Corella is a fantastic experience… a fun restaurant with local and Australian flavours. The menu is creative and draws on indigenous ingredients! The pate, steak and fish are a must… there is a great wine collection and the cocktails to totally enjoy! A great experience!!!! See less

We ordered 2 x Falafel wraps from the deli menu Corella has put together to cope with lockdown. I thought the deli options all sounded delicious, with us both opting for the falafel choice. It was flavourful and fresh and ready for pick up right on time. It was warm when I picked it up, so knew it had been freshly made. It was an inexpensive, easy for me, and a delicious lunch that was a great addition to our socially distanced picnic. See less

I recommend this place for anyone wanting to try modern Australian food with a native twist. The food is very unique and yummy!! The native ingredients are accents rather than the main part of the meal. They have good vegetarian options but the meat dishes looked more enticing. Good, not great, service. Go here if you: * Like a casual romantic setting * Enjoy your drinks and enjoy watching them getting made * Are vegetarian/ vegan * Want to try new ingredients. I didn't give the place 5 stars for the following reasons: *$$ for small serves. Entire menu is better off as small share plates. The "meals" don't seem that satiating. The marron is $50 but very small. The $45pp vegetarian set menu is shared between 2 people ( $90 for 2). It's quite small so go for the larger one, if possible. The most filling dishes are chips and pasta which is boring. * Bit crowded. They have maximised the space to fit as many tables as possible. * The food is not super wow, but it's up there. I give it 4.5/ 5. For example, there was too much spice rub on the lamb ribs. I was bored of the roasted carrots, it has same puffed corn/pepitas/ honey iteration I see on all menus these days. Eg Akiba's miso eggplant is very similar. But that's getting to the pointier end of critique. See less

Instantly became one of my favourites spots to dine in Canberra! Great staff first of all, everyone was friendly and we had a wonderful night/dining experience. Joel made some pretty fantastic cocktails. Brady, Patricia, and all the staff are phenomenal. Food was exquisite, explosion of flavours and great use of native ingredients. The photos are poor as we were so busy enjoying the food! Will be back soon :) See less

Date visited 27/06/21 As a two-month new restaurant,Corealla indeed did a great job. 9/10 Entree Lamb rib 14$each The texture is so so so tender. The percentage of fat and flesh are just right. My partner loves it and said this was the best ribs he has ever had. “Only recommendation I have is to order more than one” Chicken liver on Brioche 9$each Literally one of the best dish I have ever had. I have all kinds of organs including chicken liver. The way they made chicken liver is so impressive. Chicken Liver Parfait was starting to melt as soon as it came in my mouth. Only downside is they put two separate entree on the same plate which can be ignored given their amazing taste. Small Share Main Cured Kingfish 41$ A very ordinary dish. Taste exactly what you will expect. Avoid unless you are really into raw Kingfish. Big Main WA Marron 50$ (According to waiter it crossed between lobster and bug) Marron is very fresh, should be flown from WA?) But it was shockingly small. The whole shrimp was about the length of my little finger and about the width of my little finger. They stated for share but its better only for yourself given the extreme small portion. Flank Steak 41$ Yummmmmm! They didn't ask us how cooked we wanted it to be. I reckon it was between medium rare and rare. The beef flavor fills the whole mouth, and the texture is just right, not too hard or too soft. Be sure to cut into small pieces so that you can savour the experience. Dessert Sticky date cake 16$ The set up of the plate is very nice and delicate. Rum ice cream is the finishing touch. Enough for share between 2 people. The texture was fabulous and incredible my partner said. The service is little bot stretch,one extra person could make a big difference. See less
