About Courtyard Restaurant
The Courtyard Restaurant is located on the ground floor overlooking our beautiful internal courtyard and gardens. Offering a Modern Australian menu for dinner from Tuesday through to Saturday and a delicious Continental or Full Buffet Breakfast daily, The Courtyard Restaurant is sure to please one and all.
An imaginative menu, with some unusual and delicious flavour combinations. Being an Accor club member makes eating at our hotel an easy choice.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner at the courtyard while staying at the Mercure Canberra. They knew it was our anniversary and went to just the right amount of fuss to make it special without going so over the top to a point of spoiling it all. Great food and a friendly environment provided the right atmosphere...
Quality of food and options available at the Seafood Buffet was excellent. Enjoyed it.
Really enjoyed our night. Perhaps an additional staff member may be an asset.
Dog friendly aspect makes this a pleasant site
We were given a copy of the menu on check-in and upon reading, our mouths were watering. We weren't disappointed - the array of selections were amazing and our tastebuds were tantalised. Congratulations to the chef and team at the Courtyard Restaurant - a truly sensational gastronomic experience!!!
Dinner at the restaurant was excellent, could not complain about food and/or service both were very good. Breakfast the next morning was busy but well catered for, hot foods were aplenty
The food and service was excellent and as good as you would expect in any hatted restaurant - well done Mercure and your great team!
Caitlin was fantastic
My family of 6 adults and I enjoyed the wonderful seafood buffet. My husband and I recenly moved to Canberra from Sydney and would rate this outstanding seafood buffet as good as any or better than any we had in Sydney. Loads of fresh and deliciously cooked seafood plus delicious fresh salads, cheese and totally decadent desserts. PLUS a glass of bubbles, wine or beer on arrival included. We were totally blown away with the whole night and will be booking for next month. Highly recommended.
I dined there on Thursday night, in the middle of a 3 night stay. I need gluten free options, and was pleased to see several options on the menu. The polenta starter was exquisite, so fragrant with onions and mushrooms, so creamy on the tongue. I wish I could make it like that at home. Main course was chicken supreme, and one of the best I have had. Service from the staff was excellent. They displayed prompt attention, and when three tables declined the free bread due fo meeding gluten free, they came back with gluten free bread for all of us. My only criticism would be from a gluten free perspective. If the chef goes to the trouble to include GF plates, then they should also offer GF bread equivalent, baguette or similar, to that offered to other diners. There are three companies I know of who do frozen GF bread rolls, baguettes, Turkish bread, etc, for food service. Nonetheless I will happily return here on my next Canberra trip. The food was excellent and FOH staff shone.
We enjoyed lovely meals and drinks which was topped off by wonderful service by Caitlin. Caitlin made our night and was fantastic as she did all she could to help us enjoy our evening.
We had a dinner out with family. The service and food were both excellent. Thanks
Food was excellent, staff were very helpful and professional, will definitely come again
Exquisite food, attentive and friendly service made for a very pleasant evening with three very satisfied patrons. Will definitely dine again when next in Canberra.
It was spectacular recommend it to everyone I will come again for sure next time we are in Canberra Fran
We keep going back. Fo a while t he seafood banquet was not as good but it is now better than ever
The meals were great but one minor complaint was that the vegies were under cooked.
Thank you for this, I was going to write in to the hotel manager to let you all know that my family and I had a great time. It was very pleasant to be surprised with a bottle of bubblies for our anniversary. Daniel, I believe he name was, is great. He was most efficient and fast. Despite the full-house that night, he managed it well and kept up with a great smile and courteous attitude. We had a most wonderful time. The food was great! Thank you very much for your kind gesture and thoughts. Jen
A wonderful night. Beautiful food and fantastic service. We felt special and our waiter was superb
Food was very good at our visit yesterday, but tend to be inconsistent at some other times. Seems to depend on which chef is on duty at the time of your visit. A bit over priced unless you get 50% discount as Accor Plus members, which we do. So, would be reluctant to recommend to friends who are not Accor Plus members.
We planned a celebration dinner for my daughter's birthday at the Courtyard Restaurant and booked online. This was one of my family's best restaurant experiences. The welcome was excellent, the atmosphere was very pleasant, the service was truly exceptional and every course was delicious. I particularly appreciate the attention of the restaurant manager, chef and service staff towards making sure our visit a very memorable one. We will look forward to returning soon! kind regards, Bernie
All good great main beef accompanied with full greens etc. A complete main for me not like some that just have the beef requiring a side for two fill you.
Terrible wait staff. Spent our 33rd wedding anniversary there and it was a disgrace. 45 min to receive two glasses of wine. Requested on 3 separate occasions, apologies on all 3 occasions but eventually had to confront wait staff at register to ask where they were. Finally received them with a comment there would be no charge. Big deal. One drink that was received at beginning of night was incorrect on two occasions eventually after the third try they got it right, a vodka and orange in a smal glass. End of night they then tried to charge for three orange juices that were incorrect and then overcharged for a beer. Heard another customer complaining about not receiving drinks and they were there before us. Overall a horrible night for such a great occasion. Went to marble and grain tonight and that was professional and better value.
