Was introduce to this restaurant by a friend of ours to said it was always fully booked. Now I know why! Its an unassuming little restaurant front the outside but the food served is top notch. Delicious food and generous portions as well unlike some of the high-end restaurants which serve tiny portions at exorbitant prices. Fairly friendly staff and... More

As a party of ten we recently visited for dinner to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. Our return to this restaurant was decided following a beautiful dinner here about six months ago - at that time we selected Bistro Avoca from TripAdvisor reviews. This place is unique, situated amongst a small group of restaurants in Randwick and run by husband... More

Booked a romantic dinner at Bistro Avoca having eaten there before and been very pleased with the menu, service and quality of the food. However, the Valentine menu was very disappointing as was the service, 4 different ladies attended to us, so no personal touch, and also the over all ambiance in the bistro was poor. No real reference to... More

We had a beautiful three course meal here - very generous serves. Menu is modern oz with really thoughtful accompaniments, I recommend the barramundi main with sweet potato and curry drizzle- it's to die for! We rolled out of here and I'm already planning when I can next return.

I organised a conference dinner for over 40 people on a Monday night when Bistro Avoca is normally closed, so we had restaurant to ourselves. I can't praise the quality of the food or the service highly enough. Everyone raved about it. Somehow they managed to make everyone happy, and all I heard from all the group was how amazing... More

Instead of heading to a city restaurant this year, our company held it's Christmas Party at Bistro Avoca last night. We had a party of ten, and everyone praised for the quality of food, the warm atmosphere, the super friendly and efficient staff (Erin and Anna). I especially loved the comfortable seating and cushions on the seats next to the... More

We (interstaters on a conference) booked for a group of 12. A 13th at the last minute was cheerfully accommodated. We were given a private area for our group, so we were able to hear each other (always a plus for me in a restaurant). We chose a group menu with shared appetisers. The menu was not extensive (5 mains... More
