Novus Restaurant was established in July 2010, at the Bagtown Inn Motel as a motel restaurant.

The main reason the restaurant was started was due to Steve Franchi the young chef at Novus who wanted to bring his own flavours to the town of Griffith, the area has a large range of top quality restaurant, so Novus had to be as good and different to the rest.

The name of Novus comes from the Latin term meaning (new, fresh and exciting) with this in mind Steve produced a menu to match our Novus’s name with his modern Australian with an Asian twist ideas.

Novus very quickly became known for supply a fresh new dining experience, supply quality product at a reasonable price and friendly service for a good night out.

We at Novus believe in using local products where possible, Steve source local products to implement into his dishes and front of house only carries local wines or wines from local wineries in the Riverina area.

Novus Restaurant has also received two final awards in the Restaurant and Catering awards, N.S.W Southern area dining under the fine dining category in 2011 & 2012. Novus has also received in 2011 & 2012 the Resources Credit union Outstanding Business award.

Steve our chef is forever introducing new dishes to our guests to keep the menu fresh and exciting and our front of house is always finding ways to make our guest dining more enjoyable.

Novus is a family business run and managed by family members and our aim is to treat our guest as family members enjoying a meal with us at home.
