I really liked this restaurant. We went on a Monday night, so there was only a small selection of the normal menu. The food tasted fantastic and the desserts were excellent. We are going back on Saturday to try a few more dishes.

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
