The food had a reasonably good French influence, tasted remarkable and was presented quite well. A good selection of beers and wines made our dinner very pleasant. Averaging out at $65 per head for food and drinks combined was quite reasonable given the quality of...More

This French style restaurant provides excellent cuisine and service and has the best steak I have ever eaten. The prices are medium to high but is worth every cent.

Description
Informal but elegant, Busbys Restaurant & Bar indulges all who visit their Nepean Highway establishment in both taste and comfort. Diners are found unwinding beside a warm fireplace, glass of wine in hand, or mingling on an outdoor terrace enjoying sunny weather with a tranquil garden view to admire. Inspired by signature European tastes, a menu of sumptuous cuisine features high quality local ingredients in dishes such as marinated pork cutlets with gratin dauphinois, grilled seasonal vegetables and Sauce Robert. Ask Busbys about their various function spaces for your next event or organise with friendly staff an afternoon of High Tea with delicate treats.
