    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.

    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.

    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.

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.
