AHA ACT Hospitality Awards 2014 Logo

C Dine Bar is the winner of Best Restaurant in Canberra for 2014, a prestigious award presented by the Australian Hotels Association. For more details and other winners see their media release. Here’s what Out in Canberra had to say:

Best Restaurant went to the brave lads who originally planted the first flag down at Kingston Foreshore. Now, more than one year later, C Dine Bar has cemented its place as a fantastic location for fine seafood and aged-steaks. With the rest of the Foreshore slowly filling up, the best days are ahead for C Dine Bar as the Waterside precinct continues to grow as a dining destination. — Out in Canberra

Enjoy Moet Imperial Ice by the foreshore

  • July 5, 2014


Moet and Chandon have selected C Dine Bar as a distributor for Moet Imperial Ice.

It is the first (and only) champagne designed to be enjoyed over ice. Served with fresh fruit, it is the perfect accompaniment to the fresh seafood C Dine Bar has to offer.

A new champagne experience combining fun, fresh and free sensations while remaining true to the Moët & Chandon style, a style distinguished by its bright fruitiness, its seductive palate and its elegant maturity. — Moet & Chandon

A little insight into C Dine Bar
Located on the shores of Canberra’s Lake Burley Griffin, C Dine Bar provides an elegant yet casual atmosphere with views across the lake – making it easy to forget your day and just relax.

From our softly furnished chairs to the recycled timber and dark tones, C Dine Bar is designed to capture the essence of relaxation in a casual environment. Whether you’re here for a relaxing night out with friends or after work drinks, you’ll be looked after and made to feel welcome by our friendly staff.

“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 seafood and our Black Angus Beef — showcased in our dry aged meat cabinet.

Sourced from Riverina, NSW our Black Angus Beef is dry aged for 36 days in a controlled environment. The ageing process increases the tenderness of the meat by slowly breaking down muscle fibres.  We believe ageing our beef enhances flavour and improves the quality of the cut.


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.
