    This is a very nice French themed restaurant located as part of the Buckingham Motel in Highett. Food is of the highest standard and service matches this high standard. Not a large restaurant but a welcoming one. The restaurant is under the control of Wilson, a man with warm nature and high quality service skills. The menu changes but all dishes are very nice. My filet steak was the best I have had for a very long time. Your might not realise but this is one of the best restaurants in the area.

    Great option for french cuisine out of the city and inner suburbs. We ordered French onion soup, escargot and scallops for entree, Boeuf bourguignon, fish special and Bouillabaisse. Everything was well cooked and seasoned and not too small portions as sometimes you get dining french. Didn't get to try dessert but will definitely be back!

    Service was lovely, prompt, pleasant and professional. Food was very nice indeed. We had the cheese soufflé for entree, shared the fish dinner and had creme brûlée for dessert and we enjoyed it all. The decor/atmosphere is a little austere/plain, but it was ok.

    The food was excellent, especially the duck special, and it would impress in any restaurant in France.

    Wilson and his Busby's team are an institution on itself. Hard to believe that Busby's is part of the Best Western hotel chain as the service and food quality are on considerably higher level while being very convenient as you can get a great meal any time when other places would be closed.

    We had a great get away from home Valentine's Day dinner. Everything was great. Liked the venue, staff was friendly, food was good and portions unexpectedly big. The only point I took away out of 10 is a dessert. I'd expect something more professional. It did not ruined our experience but I personally didn't get the perfect ending to it.
