We have enjoyed this fine restaurant previously and returned for a family dinner. The comments on the quality of the meal were all excellent, a great compliment to the kitchen. Service was attentive and generally good. The wine list, whilst interesting, is a touch on the pricey side. We shall certainly return.

Great service with a real eye for detail. Food was interesting and well presented - and very tasty. Definitely a good bet for a lovely dinner.

We ordered the Express Lunch and were delighted by the soufflé and the fish and chips followed by apple and rhubarb crumble. Excellent value with great service.

Good spot for business lunch

Service was a let down. Sat for far too long between courses with used plates, food took an age to arrive without explanation as to why (restaurant wasn’t full). Ordered a medium cooked steak which arrived rare and not warm. Very much so a hotel restaurant.

Had a 'casual' special occasion lunch and it was perfect!! Casual but great service, atmosphere and food. Highly recommended.

The express lunch at Buvette is fantastic. Lots of choice but you cannot go past the cheese soufflé. Delicious. The service is always excellent.

About Buvette Bistro & Wine Bar

More than a drinking hole Making a statement as much more than ‘a hotel restaurant’ Buvette is making waves on the Canberra dining scene with their beautiful French fare. Using fresh, quality ingredients to deliver seasonal menus showcasing the best of locally sourced produce, the menu spans from shared plates, charcuterie and appetisers to grills, all day dining and decadent desserts. In the sophisticated setting filled with lots of timber, marble, vaulted surfaces and glass, this airy space has a traditional Parisian feel. Raised in Northern France, Executive Chef, Fabien Wagno takes culinary cues from timeless dishes of the classic French bistro. His food is not fussy and flavours are bold. Translating to ‘drinking hole’ in English, Buvette is far more than just a drinking hole - it’s a place of good food, great wine, excellent service and incredible atmosphere. Best dish: hand rolled gnocchi - smoked cream sauce, almonds, mushroom fricassee
