A substantial & much needed refurbishment project in recent years has awarded the restaurant with a stunning new interior.
The bistro is most definitely back. Gordon's doing it, Marco's doing it and we've been doing it for years. The first bistros originated from Paris and offered simple home cooked food to the public from basement kitchens plus wine and coffee at equally simple prices.
Our lunch and dinner menus, together with our daily specials' board, remain true to this ethos and some of our most popular dishes include beef bourguignon, steak and chips or a bowl of local Fal mussels. We also offer traditional dishes with a Bustophers' twist: The Bistro Burger with pancetta and Gruyere cheese or a starter of potted rabbit with carrot jelly.
Fixed plats du jour range from surf 'n' turf on a Wednesday to T-bone on a Friday and our best kept Sunday secret - roast beef.
Restaurant manager and experienced sommelier Tom Hancock is responsible for the informed selection of wines, spirits and cocktails and will advise you on what best complements your meal and palate, from a glass of lightweight organic Beaujolais to a heavyweight Argentinean blockbuster.
An old friend revisited. "We have visited Bustophers on and off for years. The place has changed hands a few times, chefs have come and go, but the atmosphere and rustic bistro nature which is so key to this restaurant still remain. Still packed at the weekends, great fish specials and steaks and a wine list to die for!"Steven Burgess, Broadway."
Consistently fab! "The menu changes seasonally, and focuses on local fresh ingredients. A recent change in kitchen personnel appears to have added a more hearty, bistro-style offering to the menu. On a recent visit we enjoyed a pea risotto and the Toulouse sausage and mash. Both were fantastic!" Lee & Pops - Tripadvisor
Understated elegance with a touch of pure class! "Whilst prices are on par with most other restaurants in Truro they do pack a lot more in for your money. Extremely friendly and courteous staff and even the owner was behind the bar. To Tom and his staff thank you this is definitely one of the best." Antony - Tripadvisor
Sunday lunch fit for a king. "Bustophers had a really nice sleepy Sunday lunch feel, red wine flowing, gentle hum from the other diners, light music in the background and some great company. As a group of foodies we have been trying out Sunday lunches all around Cornwall and along with the Gurnards Head this lunch got all of our vote as being up there with the best."
