“We saw a hole in the market for this type of venue in Canberra and think the Kingston Foreshore is the best place for it” — Shann Howman

Our Philosophy

Our aim is to captivate both the palate and eye by delivering the taste of sea and land right to your table. We are passionate about our perfectly prepared and sustainable seafood showcased in our seafood cabinet.

Sourced from sustainable wild fisheries and environmentally sound , farmed aquaculture

Quality Local Produce

Fresh seafood in Canberra can be difficult to source, however we have established relationships with fresh seafood suppliers, sourcing fresh seafood and oysters daily. We believe oysters should be enjoyed on any occasion, so we give our customers the chance to do so with our ‘Buck a Shuck’ Friday’s in summer. All our oysters are shucked to order.

Our dishes are created around the natural and fresh flavours of the seafood and Angus Beef to enhance the natural tastes of the produce, from the whole fish to a 450gram Angus Rib Eye you know that you will be getting the best and freshest quality available with fun friendly service.



Progressive Canvas

A revolving canvas of local art.
Canberra is a great place full of great local talent, and we are proud to offer a space for local artists to showcase their talent. Our progressive canvas is designed so that the artist can show the development of their work from start to finish.

Giving back to the community, and supporting local tourism and art, is something that C Dine Bar feels strongly about. — Daniel Keogh

If you would like to purchase any of the art work, our friendly staff will be able to help you. C Dine Bar takes no commission from the sale of any art work nor do we charge for the use of the space.
