7 Keto Restaurants in Canberra & What To Order!

The name, Canberra, might literally translate to women’s breasts.

Another translation would be the meeting place which makes a lot more sense, right?

Well, it’s both.

Canberra is derived from the word ngambri, which means cleavage. 

But wait, no violent reactions, please. 

It’s called such because the space between Mount Anslie and Black Mountain looks like one. And at that time, it was the most popular meeting place in the area. (*)

But okay, enough about the fun facts.

Let’s get into why you’re here—the list of keto-friendly restaurants in Canberra.

We have everything you need to know (including the best low-carb dishes to order) below, so let’s get started!
