First Edition Canberra


Following a recent refurbishment, Novotel Canberra welcomes its premier dining venue, First Edition Canberra. Located on the mezzanine level, the 60 seater greets guests with a masculine and luxurious space, drawing inspiration from old world reading rooms oozing homestyle sophisticated charm.

First Edition is dedicated to sourcing the best local produce and paying respect to the individuals that farm it, Executive Chef Jennie Tressler has created a diverse seasonal all-day menu showcasing the vast array of fresh produce available within the nation’s capital and surrounds.

For the individuals who are wanting to sit back and relax, the bar serves up a curated menu of spirits and specifically crafted cocktails using the finest seasonal ingredients whilst paying homage to local distilleries and tap houses.
