On Red has the best dining views in Canberra!
It is blessed by it’s privileged location in Canberra’s 50 year old Red Hill Lookout buildings, that also enjoys at the door free parking.
The menu is conveniently designed so that you can choose 3-5 smaller dishes and build your own meal. This allows you to order to suit your appetite although it is priced to favour ‘upsizing’ at $70 for 3 courses, $82 for four courses and $94 for five courses.
There are plenty of beautifully presented and interesting dishes to choose from. However, some of the more impressive sounding dishes are actually outshone by some of those that sound inferior.
For example, for dessert, the strudel of apple & drunken sultana with honey & rosemary ice cream is absolutely delicious….
…and and even better pick than the
warm chocolate tart with berries & honeycomb.
Likewise the Moreton Bay Bug is not as good a choice as …
… the Caramelised Onion Tart that has an exceptional Baba Ghanoush.
So do take some risks and be pleasantly surprised.
Choices include, in order of recommendation:
John Dory with som tam salad & chilli jam
The canapés are not as flavoursome as the dishes, but are well presented…
…and the bread is excellent!
But it’s the setting that really impresses!
