“The Gin Made It”
Review of Tipsy Bull

Tipsy Bull
Ranked #4 of 1,525 Restaurants in Canberra
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$7 - US$66
Description: Don't expect anything too posh, that’s not how we roll. We’re into good times and great food. Like a bull in a china shop, our passion for classic dining and fine drinks is out of control. Like our name suggests, everything we do is a little bit tipsy. From our food to our drinks, you can trust that we’ll have you saying ‘holy cow!’ Whether you’re after a quick bite or a long night, we’ll serve you up our twists on the classics and a curveball or two. Our share plates are a circus of flavours. Each performs a more amazing trick than the last. And like the best pop groups of the ‘90s, it’s hit after hit. Whether you want just a little or a beast of a feast we’ve got your covered. Let our cocktails wash over you and the good times roll in. Or sip into something more comfortable from our wine list.

There’s no way that I couldn’t give this place 5 stars just based upon the gin selection alone. As an avid gin drinker the gin menu was fantastic and well segmented between local Aussie and Imported gin. Very solid selection even when compared to the Gin Palace in Melbourne.


The food is decent but must admit portions were small and nothing had a wow factor.

The copious G&T’s were great but the make up with a new bottle of tonic and fruit every round tends to get a bit stale after the 9th one. Save some bottles....

Staff was very accommodating and friendly taking even inputs on what Aussie gins to add to the menu.

Will be back for sure and this time will go imports! Great place!

Cruising Braddon and happened upon this funky venue. Must say it’s a vast improvement on the schnitzel joint there previously.

We were served by a very friendly hipster whom knew the menu and drinks back to front. If you like gin this is the place for you.

We opted for the large sized plate serving of pork belly and the snapper. For two people it was more than enough.

When we arrived the place as about 10% full and as I write this it’s about 70% . Not bad for a stinking hot Sunday.

Great atmosphere, service, background music.

+ TASTY FOOD and ALCOHOL
+ Really friendly, helping and impressive service, feeling like home! The staff often checked on us and offering help. They seem to be really enjoying their job.

Basically it is fully booked, I guess it's a really popular place. Great for family and couples! We would definitely recooman this place.

Great range of gin which is served deconstructed with tonic & aromatics selected to suit your chosen gin. The staff were friendly & informative. nice selection of tapas to have with a mid afternoon drink. A great experience overall.

We chose Tipsy Bull after much research and consideration. As huge tapas fans, and perhaps spoiled by the likes of Movida in Melbourne, and even Little Prince in our local Gippsland town, we had high hopes - and expectations - of Tipsy bull, especially after seeing it won the most recent AGFG Reader's Choice award for its region.
We left feeling let down. Feeling a bit like "was that it?" Nothing we ate wowed us at all. We had the kingfish ceviche - probably the best of our dishes but still far
from WOW, the soft shell crab tacos - husband asked me if I thought there was any crab in them..., the anchovies - Movida's anchovies really set the bar high and these didn't even come close, the potatas bravas (impossible not to get right!) and the eggplant, which was 'nice.' We followed it up with spiced rum and banana parfait which again left us feeling like we climbed a big hill but got no view.
Everything was fine. There was nothing really wrong, but we wanted to walk out going "that was awesome!" And we just couldn't.
