    We had a nice evening. The new waitress was attentive but needed to check with others on a lot of our questions and, parts of our order were forgotten. The entrees were delicious, especially the prawns. The steak was cooked to our liking. Unfortunately it was too hot inside, there was no coffee and the choice of desserts was pretty average.

    We were a party of 3, we weren’t told of any specials. One of our party was overcharged about $8 when she checked later. When she told them about it they told her that they would refund the overcharged amount. It would’ve been nicer if they refunded her meal instead

    Two Before Ten is now my preferred coffee shop in Canberra. The ambience is terrific and I congratulate the owners on how they have been able to revitalise the old Aranda Shops. With good parking, having a coffee to catch up with friends and colleagues is now just so easy.

    The best Martini I've had in years. Usual great service. Vegan food was great but the steak was slightly over, still delicious. Such a great Tuesday special.

    I understand that it was busy but the food took a long time to come out. My friend and I arrived at 12:24, ordered 10min after we arrived and didn't receive our food till 1:30. The food itself was okay (hot cakes 2 pancakes and avocado on toast with an egg), and the coffee was good. I'm not sure if I would return for food, given the wait time but definitely for coffee. All up the pricing was standard for Canberra. Around 50 for a coffee and two dishes.

    I really appreciate the fresh 'home grown' food at Two Before Ten Aranda. The staff are mostly lovely and welcoming and happy to accomodate my little dog outside. Unfortunately it was coldon Thursday morning but the young female staff member brought my friend and I a rug to use as a wrap. I always sit outside as it gets very noisy, and mostly I drop in and have breakfast after dog walking during the week when it is quieter... Ive been twicethis week with a different friend/s, on consecutive mornings and both visits have been good. Thank you and will recommend you for the freshly picked produce in your meals.

    Cool little place and I enjoyed walking through the gardens with my children. Food was a little underwhelming however. The scotch fillet was over cooked which was such a shame as it was a good cut of meat. The charcuterie fell a little flat too. Some cucumber pickle and some dipping oil would have gave it a little more life and colour. Overall it was a nice evening and due to price and proximity to home we will likely return.

    I had the beetroot hommus plus fresh green vegies on a roll. The roll was bone dry as it had no butter which would not have mattered if there was a lot more beetroot hommus to moisten it or maybe some olive oil. I must admit I was disappointed.

    I am not sure why I use the online booking system. For this booking I booked in advance, requested a booth, double checked during the week that the booth was still available and then when I turned up (5 minutes early) was told I no longer had a booth because 'the system' had pushed us off. I was told I should call at 2.30pm on the day to check again... When I explained what had happened I was told the system does this and the staff have no control over the bookings. As one of the booths was going to be vacant for a period I asked if I could have it. When the next booking turned up we were asked to move, but then was offered a seat at the bar or outside (not even inside until I asked). This has now happended to me several times.

    I booked a table at 10 yards for dinner and arrived on time. We were seated right away. The bar was clearly busy, but wait staff said nothing about a wait. They then ignored us for 15 minutes before giving us a menu, despite attempts to flag someone down. Then another 30 minutes before our order was taken. I don’t mind waiting, but the way the wait staff avoided us instead of simply saying that there would be a wait was honestly rude. They would quickly avert their eyes after looking at us. We were not even given drinks to tide us over and I was turned away from ordering at the bar (quite bluntly). It wasn’t until about 10 minutes after ordering that we got our drinks and were told “it’ll be a bit of a wait for mains!” (Which took another 30 minutes - but at least we were acknowledged this time, I guess) The food was good, the bar is aesthetically pleasing, but service could use some work. I’m happy to be patient and wait on a busy night, but deliberately ignoring and avoiding us was disappointing and made the experience unpleasant.

    Hi, loved sitting outside in the herb and Vegie garden. Food was nice, service was fine and prompt. And it was so nice to share the area with dogs. 🙂 Only comment is the water on the tables was warm - not very nice. Might be fine in winter, but cool water in summer would be appreciated please. Thanks and kind regards, Mira
