    Great restaurant, would definitely go again. Steak was perfectly cooked, they were able to make minor adjustments to the menu to make certain dishes lactose-free, and good value for money.

    Exactly a year ago we celebrated my husband's birthday at Buvette Bistro and the French cuisine was delicious and of impeccably quality. We returned last weekend to celebrate again, but the menu had changed to share plates where the choices were not enticing, with only one vegetarian choice available. We ordered the battered sand whiting which was full of bones, the salad was too salty for our taste. We didn't order wine or dessert as both were too expensive. One of the most VERY disappointing meals we have had globally.

    Returned again after an extended absence, and they did not disappoint. We had 5 share plates between four of us, and all were excellent. Portions were a great size, and still left just enough room for some lovely dessert...

    A lovely quiet ambience for dining. The creme brulee was well made. The share plates are best shared between three people, otherwise rather small.

    We've been to Buvette on numerous occasions over the years, it's always delivers. Quality, service, food, ambience etc. The only reason this is not a 10/10 this time is due to the limited menu. I understand in these times things are different, but really miss the eye fillet!

    French cuisine with paired wines that does not disappoint. The delicious flavours and aromas of three courses is most satisfying. The customer service is beyond expectations from the Chefs to the weighting staff. The atmosphere coincides with the deliciousness of the menu and wine. A restaurant to experience. .

    This was an a la carte 3 course set menu. Good choices and well presented. No complaints about the food which was delicious, especially the seafood casserole and chocolate fondant. The only criticism is that the trevally ceviche needed more flavour (citrus). Very good service and a lovely setting although perhaps low lighting would be too much for some people. Very happy with the whole experience and would definitely return.

    French cuisine. Good service. Set 3 course meal with good choices due to COVID-19.

    The food was fantastic. The quality of the service was great albeit there was a delay with the mains. Understandable given this is the first weekend back. Highly recommended!

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

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.
