Meet your ultimate guide on where is open across Christmas and summer 2020-21.

After the year we’ve had, there’s never been a better time to support Canberra’s hospitality scene—just remember to stay COVID-safe when out and about, and follow all directions from the venue when dining in.

A word on accuracy: HerCanberra have compiled this list from responses received from the restaurants themselves, so they are pretty confident the hours are correct at the time of publication.

HOWEVER—things change, people change their mind. So PLEASE call the place before you set out or make a booking to make sure they’re open as planned.
