Buvette bistro & wine bar (located inside Hotel Realm, Barton), is easily one of my favourite restaurant options in Canberra. The French cuisine on offer is sensational-each dish executed well, showcasing the culinary skills of the kitchen team, headed by Fabien & Jun.

The fit out is great-Buvette oozes class and sophistication. Couple this this with exceptional customer service (in particular from Maria, Steve & Lewis) and you have the perfect space to celebrate special occasions-the whole team leave a lasting impression.

On to the food-the beef tartare, tuna nicoise salad & chicken liver parfait are my go to dishes, however, I also love the pan fried salmon and wagyu beef. The food is that good, you’ll want to try the whole menu. I highly recommend this establishment; it’s a culinary delight!

Enjoyed a good working lunch here. Initial menu only had steak to choose from before we asked if there were other options. The express menu had some good seafood mains. Enjoyed the fish. Friendly service.

Even though Buvette is in a mediocre hotel, it's still an awesome restaurant.

Authentic French food with great service. The escargot and tartar were excellent.

So was the Bouillabaisse

Eat here.

Fitting out was a bit austere but this is a curious corner of Barton with new hotels and appartments everywhere. Sort of French but more Australian, prices average for what you would expect, extraordinary wine list but we got the cheapest red on the menu, a Cote du Rhone which was very good actually. Possible to eat outside and there are a number of other nosheterias nearby. Warning, there may be people from DFAT nearby......
