Buvette Bistro and Wine Bar at the Hotel Realm, Barton has won the New Restaurant Category at the 2016 ACT Savour Australia Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence.
General Manager of Hotel Realm, Joel Gordon, says “We are thrilled to be acknowledged in the prestigious R&CA’s Awards for Excellence and I am very proud of our highly dedicated and hard-working team. Congratulations and a big thank you to our kitchen and front-of-house staff for their passion in striving for excellence.”
More than 200 local restaurants, cafes and catering businesses gathered to celebrate the achievements of their peers who were judged across 25 categories, with the winners announced at the Awards for Excellence ceremony held at Hyatt Hotel, Canberra.
The Awards for Excellence is a nationally recognised, independently judged awards program that celebrates exceptional service and culinary talent across the state. The Awards for Excellence is the only program in Australia where the judging criteria is determined by consumers who rank what is important to them in the dining experience.
The Awards are judged by an independent team of trained judges who anonymously visit the venues to determine the winners. The scores are based on the entire dining experience from food to the customer service experienced when the judges anonymously dine.
R&CA CEO John Hart says, Buvette should be proud of their achievements. Running a hospitality business isn’t easy – there’s a lot of blood sweat and tears that goes into to making it work. But when you get the right mix of staff, produce and service, the results can be extraordinary.”
