Canberra is abuzz of new eateries and cool bars. One that stands out is Temporada, a buzzing inner-city eatery known for its bold share-style menu. The cosy fit-out is perfect for romantic evenings, in the minimal and clean yet intimate and inviting sort of way. Start with a cocktail — perhaps a rum espresso martini or elderflower southside — before diving into the extensive wine list, which features a good mixture of European and local labels.
The menu is seasonal and inspired by classic tapas-style dishes. You may find fresh burrata, rock oysters, and salt cod croquettes, plus a selection of protein fresh off the woodfired grill — think Fremantle octopus, king trout, beef fillet and wagyu intercostals. For a mix of everything, try the chef's menu. For $80 per person, you'll get to try 13 plates, starting with housemade sourdough Sydney rock oysters, followed by slow-cooked lamb shoulder with wood-grilled asparagus.
