I just finished having the most wonderful meal in a cool setting at Bivouac. We ordered the "chef feed me" for a table of 4. Having never ate proper Mediterranean food before, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about what was going to be put in front of me. Then the starters arrived. I'm afraid that... More

Bivouac used to be one of our favourite go to places, and although the food and service was still good I feel as though the standard has dropped a little. Or am I just less impressed these days? Either way, I felt the value for what you pay was really not worth it. Dinner cost us just under $200 for... More

My friend and I had dinner at Bivouac earlier this week. My friend's an excellent cook herself and we agreed the food here was great. The flavours were "different" but very tasty, it all pulled together really well. The portions were modest but we left feeling satisfied. The only thing I might suggest is a broader selection of desserts -... More

It was... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant so we were eager to try it. We ordered tThe gnocchi and the only salad respectively.This restaurant might suit folks who like tiny portions. Ours could have been served on dessert plates although with good coffee the bill was over$ 50. While the salad mentioned seeds on the menu, I only saw four. I mentioned... More

Bivouac has been around long enough now to have become a bit of an institution. The tables are bare and a bit chipped and the place hasn't changed much since it opened. And the food is still great. The charcuterie plate (entrée) has some nice bits and pieces to pick through. The dishes are meant to be shared and this... More

Food is good, pretty ordinary, but the service is fast and your food is delivered to your table quickly. It's an ideal place to grab a meal before a show or going out.

This place we happened on by chance and so glad we did. We had lunch by sharing an open pulled pork taco ($12) and a sesame vegeterian dish ($16.50). Wonderful flavours, clean and herby fresh. A couple of glasses of Arlewood $12.50 went down well.

Thank Robert H
