The menu is succinct, but full of tasty options! We had the soufflé as starter and steak / special of the day (barramundi) and everything was yummy and perfectly cooked! The wine list is also good and we enjoyed our choices. The highlight is definitely...the service, the staff is attentive and regularly checking if you are enjoying your meal and if you need anything else.More

I went with teenagers. We had three different meals. All presented impecably. Chairs pulled out, napkins placed. Two sips of your drink and somebody fluttered to refill with a small and a laugh. The food - we had steak, chicken, seafood and brûlée - all...absolutely exquisite at barely more than pub prices but intricate tastes. Highly highly recommend. Wine list was excellentMore

What can I say about this amazing hidden gem! I didn’t even take photos of the food because I had gobbled each serve up before I remembered to pull out my phone. The service by Wilson and Joel is impeccable... I’m talking white napkins in...your lap, cold water refilled every sip we took and amazing conversations with the teal gentleman. The food was 5 stars! Perfectly cooked scollops with corn purée to die for, duck confit cooked to perfection and creme brûlée that would break a spoon! I cannot wait to come back and definitely will! My belly is full as well as my heart. A true delight for everyone and anyone!More

I recently went to Busby's and it was a fantastic experience. It was a nice & pleasant atmosphere where you could relax and enjoy a meal. The french themed food we had was simply fantastic - equating to a fine dining experience. I had the...steak which was the best steak I've had in a long time. The people I was with had the chicken & salmon and they both loved it. For the entrée, we shared the calamari & scollops which were also delicious. Finally, the service was also top knotch, always attentive to our needs without being overbearing. Highly recommend!More

Pleasant surprise, great service We wanted to try somewhere more traditional with cuisine of French European influence to celebrate a family birthday. Firstly the service, thank you Wilson for such attentive professional service, not in your face but always close by 10/10. The food Japanese...Scallops 10/10 Steak fillet 9.5/10 Duck 9/10 if the skin was crispier then it would have been 10/10 Chicken stuffed with Brie was probably the tables least favourite, found it a bit tightly wrapped which made it a bit to firm to eat for a chicken dish 6.5/10 Soufflé 8/10 good Good wine selection after trying a great NZ Pinot, Wilson suggested a table Shiraz which was quite good, it was a memorable evening, thank youMore
