    Top of the Town Restaurant: Highest in town

    by robertgaz Updated Feb 17, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Top of the Town Restaurant has been a part of the local scene for a very long time with only one name change as far as I can recall (it was previously known as "The Phoenician Restaurant".

    I believe it has always been run by the very affable Johny Ghandour who has been in the business for 28 years.

    The decor doesn't seem to have changed a great deal over the years either with polished pine wall panelling and mediterannean red terracotta floor tiles. For me, it's like stepping back in time and reliving the 70's right down to the decadic dial phone which requires a deft digit for dialling out!

    They offer A La Carte, Grill or Smorgasbord dining and are very popular for group bookings including weddings. Sunday is smorgasbord night which costs $22 for adults and $10 for kids under 12. It's an all you can eat affair which I now take as an offer and not a challenge!

    Great value and a good selection of freshly prepared mediterranean style dishes including beef, chicken, fish, various hot vegetable dishes and crispy salads. Once you've had your main meal you can finish off with dessert, including fresh fruit and a cheese platter.

    Tea and coffee is included in the price of the smorgasbord.

    Occasionally, they have a Lebanese smorgasbord night complete with some local "belly dancers" for your viewing pleasure.

    The restaurant is licensed with it's own bar area for pre dinner drinks at reasonable prices. Because it is located on the 4th floor there are really good views over Bunbury to enjoy. If you make a booking please request a window table. I'm certain Johny will oblige if he can.

    Update 18th February 2008: Sadly, the Top of the Town Restaurant has closed down after some three decades of filling bellies. There is talk that may re-open at a new location in town but I will have to let you know later if and when that happens.

    Josephine's: Best value lunch menu

    by robertgaz Updated Nov 29, 2007

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Josephine's sets the standard for a really great value lunch.

    The food is fantastic with most lunch specials priced at $14.50. The mains come with salad and chips.

    The a la carte menu prices are roughly double compared to the day menu.

    The restaurant is licensed with full bar facilities and a great beer and wine selection at pub prices.

    Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed my Beef Parmigiana which was served with a generous portion of tender beef cutlets smothered in a rich tomato sauce and melted cheese topping.

    And for dessert I topped up a the Crème brûlée which consisted of a rich custard topped with sugar caramelised under a blowtorch. This wa served with a sponge finger and freshly whipped cream.

    That needed a long, strong machiatto to wash it all down with!

    Prince of Wales Hotel: Pub lunch

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 3, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to mix in with locals for a pub lunch head down to the Prince of Wales in Bunbury's CBD. Meals start from $10 for fish and chips to a $25 thick cut sirloin steak cooked just the way you like it. There's a self serve all-you-can-eat salad bar and also a good selection of local and imported beers and an extensive range of South West wines. You can order and pay for your meal and drinks at the front bar. The Prince of Wales was established in 1882 and apart from a lick of paint or two it has retained much of her original charm.

    Favorite Dish: The Spicy Lamb Warm Thai Salad with tender strips of warm lamb marinated in a mild spicy Thai sauce with chillies and garlic with a fresh garden salad. All washed down with your favourite beverage from the the bar.

    Cost - $16.00

    Update 04/06/07 -

    Not only can you get a reasonable pub lunch but the Prince of Wales also has an evening menu. So at a recent family gathering I tried the Grilled Snapper topped with Creamy Garlic Prawns served with french fries. Naturally you can help yourself to the all-you-can-eat salad bar.

    Cost - $21.00

    Lighthouse Restaurant: Choice mouthwatering chargrilled aged eye fillet

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 27, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Lighthouse Restaurant overlooks the Indian Ocean by day and is the perfect spot to eat and watch the sun set in the west. At night you can view the city lights of Bunbury's CDB while wining and dining on local fresh produce and award winning South West wines. It is part of the Lighthouse Resort

    Favorite Dish: Aged eye fillet chargrilled on sweet potato mousse, spinach and sultana salad, roast garlic and sticky beef jus with parmesan crisps.

    I'll apologise in advance to my vegetarian friends and even to those meat eaters who prefer their meat dead. But I personally enjoy a mouthwatering "blue" steak if it's perfectly crisp and glistening on the outside and warmed right through. It was so tender I could have sliced through each tender morsel with my fingers. And I washed it down with a rich, ripe berry fruit Cabernet Merlot from Amberley Estate :~)

    Green Jade: The best spring rolls in Bunbury

    by robertgaz Updated Jun 27, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Green Jade Asian Restaurant is owned and run by Wally Yip who has many years experience in Chinese restaurants. There was a time way back in the late 1960's when Bunbury had only two Chinese restaurants and Wally started one of them.

    The food here is always fresh and well prepared. Some Chinese restaurants in Bunbury leave a lot to be desired but thankfully the Green Jade menu caters to local tastes without comprising qualityand freshness.

    Good value set lunch menu for $8
    Dine-in or take away menu

    Favorite Dish: I'm particularly partial to the home made spring rolls.

    Chilli prawn Airconditioned inside or enjoy the weather outside Set lunch menu is now $8 Take away menu

    Aristos: Don't Miss the Celebrity Chef

    by Jenelle7 Written Mar 26, 2006

    Situated on the Ocean in Bunbury is the Seafood Restaurant "Aristos".
    Named after the owner himself, Surprise Chef, Aristos. We ate here twice in our stay, and both times were magnificent. The Chilli Mussels were the freshest I've ever tasted and the Calamari were tender and tasty.
    I would certainly recommend you come down and give it a go.

    Favorite Dish: Chilli Mussels

    Joe's Pizza House: Pizza Dogs

    by lovebyteme Written Feb 27, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The pizza dogs here are great. They are a little hard to describe I think you have to try them to appreciate them. They use pizza dough and enwrap a hotdog sausage and other flavours inside to make what looks like a giant hot dog.
    The best part is Joe himself, he kept my two year old nephew really entertained with his flipping of the pizza dough. The restaurant itself is quite simple but there is some pictures and old menus on the wall which will give you an idea of the history of Joes.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Pizza Dog - Prefer it to the other pizza dogs and still has a slight hint of a hot dog flavour. These are great. You can also buy them from some of the local supermarkets, but I think they are cheaper from Joe's.

    Louisa's: Fresh Seafood

    by IrishFem Written May 12, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A delightful restaurant and one of the most rewarded restaurants in the South West. Louisa's reataurant is set in a beautifully restored californian bunglow. The food is fresh and delicious and the chef uses a lot of the local produce. Try the roast potatoes with the freshly made chilli sauce.
