Boffins Restaurant will be closed from Saturday 24 December 2016 and will reopen on Monday 30 January 2017.


Boffins is a hidden treasure of Canberra, tucked away in the tranquil and elegant surroundings of the Australia National University campus at University House.

Boffins has been providing superb food, wine, and service for over 30 years, and whilst other establishments have come and gone with the trends, Boffins has stood the test of time.  The restaurant offers a glimpse into the past, exuding the old world charm of the heritage-listed building that surrounds it.
