We were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of food in this lovely charismatic cafe. Food quality and service was excellent - couldn't have asked for more.

If you are going to be in Strahan for any length of time (or somewhere near the West Coast), you simply MUST visit this restaurant! The menu selection is vast and varied, and the dishes are absolutely superb. With a friendly atmosphere, casual and warm staff, and excellent food, this is a restaurant you do not want to pass by....

Visiting for the day, thought we would have a counter meal at the local pub .... alas it was closed on a Friday! Not to be open for service until 5.30pm! Wandered along the road to the Bushmans Cafe and what a pleasant surprize, had home made soup with hot bread rolls, very nice and just delicious. Talked with the... More

Food very good - enjoyed entree of squid, mains of lamb and brisket both great and generous serves. Coffee also good and reasonable wine list. Not so impressed by desert but still rated this as one of our best meals... More

We were advised in advance that when in Strahan , the best places for dinner were Risby Cove and Bushman's Cafe . Our first night , because our Bonnet Island Cruise (including dinner) was cancelled , we opted to go to the long running play "The Ship That Never Was". When we left the theatre , at about 7 PM...

My partner and I dined to celebrate my birthday dinner and were not disappointed at all. As on previous occasions, food was delicious . Beautifully presented and generous portions.... More

I was here on Saturday, 22 April 2017. I had eaten a very disappointing meal the previous evening in a nearby restaurant and was apprehensive about having another shabby meal. I should not have worried. The very friendly staff and chef did a great job, and I accepted their recommendation to have the trevalla with crispy fried "wing". The fish... More
