Gus’ is an institution of the Canberra hospitality scene, with a history spanning 50 years. It was the first Canberra café to introduce outdoor dining, back in the 70s, and has played a major role in the cultural development of the city. The recent renovation features materials of the highest quality, such as brass, marble, and teak, while maintaining the venue’s classic European feel.
The famous outdoor dining area boasts large glass windows which allow sunlight to flow into the space, making it the perfect place to catch up. The team of friendly wait staff are dedicated to providing good old-fashioned quality service, and are sure to take your order with a smile.
The menus offer classic seasonal options that you know and love, but with a Gus’ Place twist. Rather than try to reinvent traditional dishes, Gus's elevate them so they hit all of the senses. They cater for a variety of allergies and dietary preferences, and are fully licensed, stocking a variety of local beer and wine.
