The food here is delicious and generous portions. I have tried a few different meals. Has new owners now but will keep the staff and menu apparently. Only downside is food takes a while to arrive. Decor could be brightened up a bit.

Dinner out after the movies. Great, fresh food. Decent sized helpings. Everyone was happy. Excellent service. Wait staff was too keen when taking plates away, could wait until everyone was finished. Nice wine and beers. Excellent evening. We will be back.

We had a lovely meal at bushman's hut.We shared a platter and a prawn salad and had deserts. Platter was good value and had a good variety of food. Was well cooked. Service was friendly and fast gals enjoyed their desserts. An enjoyable evening thanks.

We had dinner here last week and enjoyed it very much. I had the sweet potato chowder which I thought was delicious, it was thick and sweet but not sugary. It had a Dahl-like consistency. My husband had the steak which was very good as...More
