Fantastic restaurant, we loved every dish. Very contemporary menu with high quality seasonal produce. Excellent value. I like being able to choose the dishes rather than being locked in to a set menu. Friendly service and beautiful ambience. One of the best, if not the best in Canberra.

We went with the chefs selection and it was all fantastic, impossible to pick a stand-up between the oysters, beef cheeks and tartare. Service was the perfect blend of attentive without being overbearing. Thanks for wonderful evening.

Not bad food - but wait 40 mins for entree of 1/2 doz oysters only to just receive 2 and then our sides before any main dish was served.

Amazing food, fantastic service, decor/ambience really pleasant and fun, a bit noisy but I'm not a youngster and probably a bit sensitive to that. The only criticism I would have is that there was too much food! Starters we each a perfect size, however, the mains and the dessert we shared could have been a bit smaller - or the advice from staff could have been to order less. I was uncomfortably full for the next 24 hours to be honest. My own fault I know - I didn't have to eat it all but I really hate wasting food.

Smaller share plates were imaginative and packed in lots of flavour. Oysters were terrific. Good GF and vegetarian choices. Larger plates were not as interesting, nor were the desserts. Service was good. Didn't love starting my meal at 6:30 and being hustled out - for the amount we are paying, I think we deserve a relaxed and leisurely meal.

Food was great, we did the chefs selection which could do with a 2 hr sitting rather then 1.5hrs, otherwise recommend.

Wonderful food and service. Has a great atmosphere and design inside. A little loud at times, but nothing that couldn't be overcome. The food is all designed to be shared, and the Chef's Selection for $90 is well worth the price for sure.

I have visited Rebel Rebel with some friends on 17 November 2021.
The place is nice, food delicious and really well presented and to some extent different. Staff very friendly but professionl at the same time.
The dishes that I really recomment are : tongue (that I didn't think I would like but I did)
and kingfish ..
We'll definitely be back

Wow! My first time at Rebel Rebel after hearing a lot about it and it exceeded my expectations. The Chef's Selection at$90 was so worth it. You need a lot of room in your stomach as you don't want to leave anything left on the plate. Service was fabulous too!

Superb food - we ate luscious raw kingfish with garlic, olive and pistachio, succulent grilled prawns, and pumpkin served with smoked yoghurt and curry leaves followed by coffee and date desert and a blood orange sorbet. Accompanied by stellar Mada wine. Such innovative excellent dining with graceful service. So good to be back after lockdown.

The food was amazing, each course did not disappoint. Fried quail was perfect and moist, and the king prawn was the best prawn I’ve ever eaten. Definitely recommend this place, not cheap but so worth it.

Wow wow wow. Absolutely fantastic. Down from Sydney for the weekend and had been recommended Rebel Rebel. Wasn’t sure what to expect but it was excellent in every way. We went for the chefs selection on the recommendation of the French waiter and it didn’t disappoint. They also have a good selection of beers for those who don’t drink wine! My advice is go and enjoy

Interesting food. Every dish delivered. Light not overwhelming as can happen when ordering many shared plates.
Passion of staff is evident and cheerful interested service without being intrusive.

One of the best dining experiences I’ve had in Canberra! The food and wine was phenomenal, the service outstanding, and the warm and welcoming vibe made it feel cosy and like we were having dinner with family. Highly recommend this restaurant! An amazing experience, especially for our first time out after lockdown!
