You are firstly welcome by front of house, who then introduces you to your host for the evening and seats you. The menu is impressive (Something for most, even the pickiest little eaters). But if you go to this place get the steak or the...steak and ribs combo, it is amazing, and the pepper sauce is beyond delicious. Service is prompt, and the host was amazingly friendly and attentive. I cant wait to go back.More

Meal was nice although vegetarian options extremely limited (Artichoke dip) even though they say Vegetarian friendly. And be WARNED you will be robbed of $18 for one small glass of Pinot Noir !!.

The food was amazing, music and ambience was great. Felt like a real family dinner at home and the kids room was an excellent touch so they don’t get bored. Our waiter E.T was perfect even after only starting his role a few weeks ago,...he’s a natural in customer service and was always on his feet with our big group throwing questions at him. He handled us with patience, humour and with a smile. Will definitely come back and hope to see him again!More

We frequent this restaurant on a monthly basis and have never been disappointed with their cuisine. Steak is done perfectly and their ribs and calamari are also favorites.

This restaurant consistently performs. They have great meat and ribs AND they will serve them the way that you want it. If you want sauce on the side they can do that, they get it right consistently and the meat quality is great. They are...very family friendly and have a good kids menu. There is entertainment in the back for kids. The manager is always friendly and welcoming.More

Sunday 21st Feb, my wife and I were on a vacation in Takapuna, and all day I keep telling her that I was craving for a steak meal. We didn't know Takapuna well so I Googled for places that had steak meal and found Bushman's...Grill just 7 minutes drive from where we were staying. I emailed for a 7:30 PM booking and not long after I got a reply for booking confirmation. so we got there and the staff was so friendly, took us to our table and bought over the menu, we had a look at the menu and made up our mines what we wanted to order. We called the waitress over and ordered 2 600g rum steak meal and other stuff to go with your steak meal as well. The funny thing is we didn't know how big 600g of meat is till they bought our steaks over...it was humungous, I wispered to my wife with a smile, honey this is massive and I don't thing we can finish this,lol. So we said grace and ate, oh boy that first bite of my steak was so freaken delicious, cooked to perfection as per my instruction, honestly that was one of the best rum steak I've eaten period, we never got to finish it so we were allowed to take it home, tje steak meal was quite pricey but worth it, so thank you Bushmen Grill for your awesome hospitality. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely come back for more. You guys were just fantastic. Sorry all for the long novel.More

Visited Bushmans on Valentines Day and tried the Beef Carpacio and Angus Tenderloin. Was soooo good. Love that they served damper as well. Food was amazing and so was the service. A big thank you to our waiter Aruth for his attentive, personalised service and...friendly demeanor.More

From a very last minute booking, we are so pleased we found Bushmans Grill in Northcote. The service was great, friendly and welcoming. The value for money and quality of the meals 👌 spot on! We had the calamari and basted chicken - both delicious....Steak cooked EXACTLY as ordered, which can be hard to get sometimes. Vibrant atmosphere, with a play area for kids if you're visiting as a family. Can't wait to come back again.More
