    Consistently good: menu simple but with surprises and servings sensible. Good spot for a quiet business lunch. And their house wines are excellent.

    I was extremely disappointed that there was no vegan entree or main course option available on the menu in this high priced establishment. Given that 10% of the population don't eat animals this is not acceptable. The chef did his best, but salad for entree and main course is not what I would normally expect when paying $75/head. I will not eat there again until the menu is changed.

    Good but a bit too noisy. Entre was good! Steaks were cooked perfectly. Aperitif cocktails tasty. Sangiovese so very very good! Waiter and waitress fabulous, kind, funny and attentive.

    We have been to Buvette many times since it’s opened. We feel that the food standard has continuously deteriorated since. Tonight, one of the meals ordered was a share seafood dish for two and was thoroughly disappointed when it arrived. However, after speaking to the host, he quickly rectified the issue with the kitchen which was nice and appreciated. Unfortunately we feel that should not have happened in the first place - patrons don’t want to have to uncomfortably point out issues.

    I ordered a second glass of wine and ended up cancelling it as it was so slow coming and did not arrive. I had to wait ages for the first glass as well.

About the restaurant

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.
