Food that Canberra, Australia is known for

Redsalt's is one of many restruants that have lean, sleek decor, pretty garden views and conspicuous lack of over-stuffed chairs belie the negative assumptions made about hotel restaurants. During the week, the restaurant specialists in simple grilled cuisine from an a la carte menu. However, on Friday and Saturday nights, Redsalt embraces the good old-fashioned hotel-style buffet, setting out a colorful feast of seafood. Bookings are recommended for this popular weekend event, as diners enthusiastically tuck into artfully arranged platters of lobsters, prawns and oysters, made-to-order seafood stir-fries and enormous salads.
