Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Have been visiting this restaurant for many years now and it never fails to deliver. The food is always on point, the service is always fantastic. A must do when on the shore.

I was happy coming back to this place for a second time it’s always satisfying feeling, the price of the food is not so bad you’ll get a meal more than you expected.

It as very busy but we were seen to quickly. We all had mains only one was a disappointment the calamari was chewy & wet. The service was almost non existent by the time we finished our mains had to catch someone’ eye to get...more service. Overall a good nightMore

The steak was absolutely superb. This is why we visit this restaurant and drive almost two hours to get there. The food is honestly superb. Unfortunately the famous Dom Pedro’s was a raving failure. Really? Please check on how a real traditional SA Dom Pedro...is supposed to be made. Our waiter was also mostly nowhere to be seenMore

I highly recommend Bushman’s Grill. Good kids space. Food was great. We were 22 people and all of them really liked the food and the service. Great variety of plates and I couldn't choose just one dish, I'll have to go back to try the...others.More

Loved the entire experience, food was great and didn’t take too long. Would recommend getting a starter though so you’re not too hungry waiting for your main. Good music, lively atmosphere and the staff are just wonderful. That peppermint crisp tart is just divine!

Greetings. I'm making another review as it seems my other one was removed. I would like to let you know that you should not go to Bushman's Grill. First when I came in the flooring looked disgusting. Next when I ordered the steak there was...a substance inside I cannot describe. It tasted like cottage cheese but a bit more sour. This restaurant is lucky I didn't call the manager! Do not recommend going here. Kind regard Shannon DaBussy.More

You DEFINITELY should have contacted the manager regarding the unexpected content in your steak. I am genuinely intrigued to learn more about it. In my 35 years in this business, this is the first time I've encountered such an issue!

Reviewed 18 February 2024

Bushmans Grill is a good place to eat but really becoming pretty expensive. E.g.: Two starters and then another two starters for mains with a kids menu. Couple of drinks could cost you approx. $155.00. This is why it is not a regular place to...dine. Maybe on special occasions. Place has quality service. Oh another think is that if you are only 2 / 3 customers the seating spacing could be pretty tight in some places within the restaurant - Not comfortable.More
