We live nearby to Bistro Avoca and have been meaning to go for a long time. Why did we wait so long?! Bistro Avoca was amazing, and our expectations were far exceeded. The decor/ambience, service and food were all just perfect! We had the pleasure of being looked after by a mix of wait staff during our visit, and all... More

Recently we had a family celebration at Bistro Avoca. There were nine of us in the party and were put in an alcove out the back near the kitchen. We were given a very nice friendly waiter but had trouble taking down the correct orders. We waited ages for our bread rolls, which I might add were the highlight of... More

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...
