Have tried almost everything on the menu at Buvette in the last 2 months. They are delicious but do hope they have new items to keep it interesting for frequent customer

Great service and food was excellent. There was one selection (beetroot salad) that was very average, but the other dishes made up for it.

Buvette was exceptional! We went for our wedding anniversary to have a special night. The service was great! The food was delicious and they were good portion sizes. The food was maybe a little too quick between courses but otherwise perfect! Pricing was good too and the menu had a lot of variety including options for vegetarians/vegans! The bar also had some really great drink options too! Highly recommend!

Food here is excellent. The great service was marked by our waiter remembering us from our last visit which is always appreciated. Our interstate friends enjoyed the evening. Looking forward to our next visit to Buvette.

Great service, Good floor manager, delicious food, great selection of wines, can be a little noisy when big groups are there. Otherwise the atmosphere is fantastic.

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
