I've never left an unhappy customer after dining at Bistro Avoca and for a quality night out provides exceptional value, in my opinion.

Dined with a group of friends a couple of weeks ago. Let's start with the positive and that's the food. It is very very good. The new french chef knows his stuff, there's a varied menu, all delicious sounding, including a degustation and the wine list if exceedingly well priced, perhaps because the restaurant is BYO. Everything we ordered was... More

I booked Bistro Avoca to host my Mum's 70th birthday. I honestly can't rave enough about how wonderful it was- the food was exquisite and it had the service to match. Anthony made arranging the function so easy and was so helpful. Chef Leonard's seasonal menu is accessible, interesting and clever. Every dish has exquisite attention to detail so that... More

Terrible! Bistro Avoca was amazing before changing hands. Tonights food was too salty and it all tasted the same (unfortunately none of it tasty). What a waste of money!

firstly when you walk in it doesn't really sink in until your food arrives at the table.. there is no smells of the yummy food that you think is going too come out until it arrives at your table with yet no smell... the entrées look and tasted like they had been made days before apart from the hot bread...

There were four of us going out for my birthday and I had chosen Bistro Avoca - I have walked past many times - it looked attractive and the new Autumn menu seemed quite enticing. The restaurant aspires to fine dining with its pleasant room of whites and timber and with a menu that definitely appeals to the palate and... More

What was meant to be a romantic 1st wedding anniversary dinner basically turned into a hugely disappointing, miserable experience we'd rather forget. It was the second time my husband and I visited the bistro and the experience couldn't have differed more. The first time ( early 2015 ) the food was great and the service efficient and super friendly from... More

Well it started off a little shaky as the humming bird took our menus and drinks order but not our meal order. But not to worry, the busy bumble bee came to the rescue and our orders were on the way. The food was great and the brie and truffle with roll was a great finish to an excellent meal.... More
