    We chose this restaurant for a special occasion, based on previous experience - we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service outstanding. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

    Food was amazing! Lots of choice between small and larger dishes. Some of the best seafood, snails and Brûlée that I have ever eaten. Highly recommend++

    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.

    $70-$80 seems high but it’s not as that included drinks entree and Main each. The food Was great and the wine choices also. Very friendly service. It is a definite visit when in Canberra for me.

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.
