Imagine starting your day with a scrumptious breakfast as you relax by Canberra’s iconic Lake Burley Griffin. Or perhaps a long leisurely lunch on the balcony, or a sample of Walter’s premium coffees as you sit by the water’s edge. If you feel like something a little more exciting, take a spot by our exposed glass kitchen window, enjoy a drink from the bar and watch the magic as it happens. The Walter’s menu of fine contemporary Australian cuisine has something to compliment every mood, but the service always feels like luxury.
