Dear Prudence,
won’t you come out to play?

Tucked in the centre of Canberra, Prudence offers a list of global wines and local undiscovered bottles served with a delicious prefixed bistro menu. A playful place to visit from afternoon to late evening.

Beverages of the European kind

Curated by sommeliers Chester Mok and Benito Drovandi, our drinks list is considered and welcoming.

On the menu

Drops you’ve likely never tasted before

Indoor or al-fresco wine and dine

Outdoor tables amongst the Plane trees with views of bustling Alinga street provide a front row ticket for people-watching. Inside, distressed walls and arched window forms speak to the building’s history. When the sun goes down and the warm candlelight glimmers on your wine glass time will – even for just a moment – seem to stand still.
