“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Great place for everyone's taste. Visiting our son at UWMadison, wanted to go somewhere different than pizza. Everything was great - be sure to order dessert! Son ordered lamb kabobs, daughter had spaghetti/meatballs, I had Chicken Marska, hubba had lasagna. Everyone loved what they had. Between Mediterranean and Italian, you can't go wrong.

“Fantastic Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Came to town for an event at Olbrich Gardens. We took a chance on Bunky's. Phenomenal wait staff. The food was A+++.Bunky's pasta,lamb kabobs,chicken mushrooms with chipotle sauce. Plenty of leftovers. Great atmosphere. If you think decor is unique, check out the restroom! Definitely will return sooner than later!

“Amazing Mediterranean Food & Great Wine List”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This is my favorite restaurant in the Atwood neighborhood. Very creative menu, funky hipster vibe, and excellent service. I dream about their slow-cooked Mediterranean eggplant dish with couscous. Parking can be a pain, but it's sooooo worth it. Mmmmmm....

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I'm a big fan of Bunky's...one of my favorite lentil soups in town and chicken kabobs are delish. Always a good experience in a cozy and eclectic environment.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

I've stopped at Bunky's several times- its located in the hipster neighborhood of Willy st. /Atwood Ave and the decor of the restuarant is really fun. I've eaten here several times and the food is excellent and the service was phenomenal! I'll definitely be back again
