This establishment came highly recommended by a close friend who regulars here. Firstly, the waiter that operated solo the night we visited, is seriously one of the best I have ever seen in my life. The place was packed and he seemed to be handling everything brilliantly without any glitches. This place could do with a bit better extraction. In... More

When we booked we knew they were busy but we were greeted warmly and watching the one and only waiter work the room of plus 60 guests was a sight to watch. A well oiled machine this place is with friendliness and attention to you. Food was delicious. Simple but perfectly cooked with fresh salads and homemade onion rings that... More

My mum and I love this place, it's our go to grill. It's my favourite place to eat steak out of everywhere else I've been (i have it fried without any sauce, just simple great steak). Now, the steak is great! but this is a place to go for when you want great food, not bothered about fancy decor, expensive... More

This restaurant has been around for ages, and it looks it. Really needs an upgrade. However, the food was good, excellent steaks. Tourists don't seem to have discovered this, the customers were locals who seemed to know each other, probably regulars. A simple restaurant with good food, the chef very busy behind the counter doing everything himself.

Wanted to have the T-bone but vainer would not accept my order, because rump steak would be much better. I am not sure about the T-bone, but the rump steak came really good. It was so tender as I have never had it before. Sauce and fries were ok, but not excellent. The chef is also the owner, and has... More

The decor was like going back to the 1970's, however I will return because it was by far one of the best steaks Ive ever eaten. The waiter was friendly and highly competent, in fact Im sure he's been there since the 70's to. It really is a simple down to earth, no frills restaurant with extremely well prepared steaks.

Walking back from town decided to pop in and try Buzbey. We both had a meat dish and the meat was tender and tasty. The vegetables and rice were served separately apposed to them serving it up on your plate. A plain simple restaurant with a high price tag for what you get.

The owner/chef does all the cooking single-handed which must be some trick when the place is busy.My sea bass was well-cooked but would have been improved with a sauce.My partner's ribs were ok and the other dishes of calamari were pretty ordinary.Creme caramel tart was poor.Service was ok but there were only 2 tables occupied.There were some reasonable wines available...

I have dinned previously with my family and was not quite impressed with the food. However after a lot of convincing from my friend I decided to give Buzby another go. This time around it was like heaven and earth. The food they serve was amazing. I order the sardines for a starter. The sardine tasted wonderful. For a main... More
