One of my favourite fine-funky dining spots in Canberra - always delicious and creative flavours to be had. The staff are fantastic, accommodating and very knowledgable. We had the duck liver parfait on mini toasts, raw kingfish, steak tartare, pumpkin tortellini, duck ragu and banoffee pie. It was all absolutely delightful as always. Great place for special occasion dinners! See less

We went there for our 17th wedding anniversary. Food was ok not amazing. It seems everytime we come here something goes wrong with the service. Tonight they were extremely slow and to top it off they told us we had to move tables or leave before we had finished our food. I think this is the last time we come here. See less

Dining as a solo traveller can often be a disappointing experience, however this was not the case at eightysix north. It was more than just a restaurant it was a Canberra experience! Seated at the kitchen bar I had a front row seat to see the skilled chefs in action and they even took the time to make sure I was comfortable and even gave me travel tips to what to see in town. The food was divine and very high quality. I will be recommending eightysix north as THE PLACE to visit to all my colleagues when visiting interstate. See less

I know it’s early days but I’m calling it; best meal of 2022! My husband and I ordered the tasting menu and it was off the charts. Incredibly generous portions, exciting dishes, served by super lovely and accommodating waitstaff. Thank you 86 for a fab evening. See less

We had dinner here in late January 2022. The food and drinks were good - especially liked the cheeseburger sliders and the caramel popcorn sundae. The service was extremely good. Staff were there when needed, but not otherwise. Recommended. See less

Best overall restaurant experience in Canberra to date. Last stop on our way back to Melbourne. Service was excellent, attentive, friendly, helpful and each course was perfectly timed, just as we finished one course, the next one arrived promptly. Highly recommend the chef selections. Ceviche and Tartare were my favourites and you must have the banoffee pie. Had a brief chat with the staff about the origin of the restaurant name, smart. 5 stars. See less

My partner and I came from Sydney to spend the weekend in Canberra. We arrived Friday after 4.30pm. After we checked in at the Hyatt, we drove to Braddon and parked the car in a side street and began to look for a place to dine. We decided to approach eighty-six restaurant and check their menu. Before we had a chance to open the door, a young waiter greeted us with the most incredible smile and gave us all the information we needed to know. We thanked him and told him that we were going to look around and then decide. After stopping outside several restaurants, we made a decision to return to eighty-six and dine there. The handsome, bubbly waiter immediately noticed us and delightful opened the door and greeted us. Taking our umbrella to place it in a bucket, he prepared our table and handed us the menus. We made sure to tell him the reason we returned here was because of his genuine and excellent customer service making sure we were comfortable and served on time etc... He was successful with the add on sale ( dessert) and instead of one dessert, we ended up with two. Couldn't resist and had to add him for his name. He replied, " my name is Miguel" . We will never forget his service and will definitely return. Food was amazing. Please boss! Give Miguel a payrise. I know a perfect asset when I see one. Thanks a million Miguel See less

One of the top two restaurants in Canberra. Words can not describe the smooth, silky texture of the pumpkin tortellini, and the chocolate bounty was as light as air. The choice in cocktails complimented the food perfectly. The only thing that let the meal down a tiny bit was the risotto. Unfortunately, I didn't catch the servers name. He did an excellent job. His timing was perfect and he was very accommodating to everyone in the parties needs. I only wish I caught his name. I would most certainly recommend eightysix, and will hopefully return again someday. See less

I have been to 86 for numerous times for the past five years. I always come back for Pumpkin Tortellini, banoffee pie and Sicilian Hit cocktail. These are the must haves! The hot dog was a great hit. The chocolate bavarian was so so. Today’s banoffee pie was more like grainy toffee pie (can’t really find or taste the banana) Around $60pp without drinks and $75pp with drinks Minus 1 star for the uncomfortable sitting situation and waiter stopped us bluntly mid ordering. Me: - ‘Can we also get... (about to say the name of the dish)’ Waiter *cuts me off* : ‘That is enough. You can order more later’ It was my first time ever experience this type of situation. Keep in mind that we did not ask for his opinion at all regarding how many dishes should be ordered. And we didn’t even order that much (4mains for 4 adults) but he made us feel quite embarrassed so we ended up ordering less :((. We would appreciate his concerns if we did ask for his opinion however we did not. So Yeah it was weird. Note to the owner: please upgrade your table! It’s not okay to cram 4 adults into a tiny square 60x60cm table. One table can sit 2 people ideally. Thank you! Note to chef: please slice the bananas a little thicker. Thank you very much!

(4.5 stars) Following Nick Spencer’s journey from Eden Road Wines, to his own eponymous label, Nick Spencer Wines, led me to Canberra earlier in the month. Joining a long table of oenophiles at Eighty Six Restaurant Braddon in Braddon, we worked our way though Nick’s soon-to-be-bottled new releases against a well-executed feast ($130/head). Brook trout roe served on potato scallops with creme fraiche gave the juicy 2021 Petillant Naturel ($28) something to work off, though it’s hard to imagine a food that wouldn’t work with this natural style wine. Beef carpaccio with white anchovy aioli and watercress came with the quaffable 2021 Rose ($28). The wine is salmon pink and very dry, making it quite the summery quaffer, while the carpaccio was so delicious I just wanted more of it. Sensibly though the kitchen was helping us save space for cauliflower and Pyengana gratin with the flagship 2019 Tumbarumba Chardonnay ($40): a cracking match with a standout wine. Moving through barramundi and an even better lamb shoulder that pulled from the bones cleanly, my wine of the night was the 2019 Medium Dry Red ($35) from Gundagai. Made using Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo and Portuguese Touriga Nacional, this surprising medium bodied red would be a good compromise for a couple where one likes fighting reds and the other is a Pinot Noir drinker. Eighty Six excels in simple food, like a buerre bosc pear tarte tatin, which leaves the chef nowhere to hide without perfect execution. Luckily the kitchen had that well in hand… See less
