Pleasant atmosphere. Interesting menu of traditional and modern dishes. Welcoming and helpful staff.

Parlour is great for small groups, I love the privacy in the way the place has done its layout. Great spot.

The food tasted great and the ambience was fantastic. We ordered the fish and pork for our mains. While both dishes tasted fabulous, the barramundi could do with more sauce. I love the chic vibe the place offers. You can move from the formal dining to the casual couch area which I prefer after dinner, preferably for cocktails and dessert. Friendly service. Would definitely like to go back and explore the bar menu next time.

Parlour had a limited menu but each item was done very well. The atmosphere is wonderful - it feels intimate yet lively at the same time. The only quibble was that the food took quite a while to come out, so we had to rush through our meals to make it to our movie.

Great food and friendly staff. The staff could of been a little more proactive with offering drinks etc. It is a nice place to bring people who are not from Canberra (like we did) to show them some of New Acton and what ACT has to offer.

It was fabulous! A bit loud because there was a function, but food was superb, and service wasn’t great.

About Parlour

Set amongst the historic New Acton precinct, Parlour is a dining and drinking experience like no other in Canberra. Open until late, we offer tapas from the kitchen, local and international boutique wine, as well as classic and house cocktails – all delivered with friendly and personalised service. Parlour aims to provide an environment for warm, convivial lunches and lavish late nights – slightly removed from the Civic centre. We encourage the night-cappers, power lunchers, birthday drinkers, gourmet grazers, and wine lovers. We pride ourselves on a commitment to ethical food practices, with head chef James Forman preferring to source locally and sustainably where possible. We invite you to take a seat in one of our infamously cozy lounges and discover exactly what makes Parlour so unique.
