Located on the ground floor of Kingston’s York Apartments is Pomegranate, the latest incarnation of this popular and at times acclaimed dining destination that once housed Artespresso, and The European.

Run by head chef and owner Erkin Esen, and his wife Ziba. Since 2014, Erkin has been at the helm of some of Canberra’s best restaurants. Erkin brings a vision of contemporary Mediterranean cuisine that hints at his heritage without being overwhelmed by it.

The Pomegranate restaurant delivers simple, tasty food that is Modern Australian with a Mediterranean influence and is open for lunch and dinner. Meals are served in a relaxed and friendly environment with beautiful surroundings where diners can enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, quality food and wine with family and friends.
