Good food that was different from the norm, Chef certainly made an effort to be different and that was achieved.

Was ok. Probably expected a little more. Service really fell away towards the end of the night despite there still being a few tables still there. Everything was kind of rated a high good, just not excellent. We’d go again to give it another chance Did, however, enjoy the selection of after dinner drinks. With some sharper service they could have got a couple more glasses out of us.

Our first visit to this restaurant, we enjoyed the service and superb cooking, a very good locally focused wine list in a delightful room. We shall return.

Great food and wine options with good quality. Our table had cold air blowing on us from a crack under a door so not good on a cold night. Overall experience was very memorable and would return.

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
