Buffet was surprisingly good. Good variety of food. Some of the dishes were hit and miss but overall was not bad at all. Few cakes to choose from and a bowl of fruit salad were my dessert options. Best thing about the place is the view of the Illawarra. Staff were friendly and quick to take dirty plates away when... More

The only great thing about this place is the view of Wollongong. The buffet is overpriced and the food was terrible, all the meat is very greasy and tough. The pasta is soggy and all the cakes were horrible, overall very poor quality food. This place is very dated. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Tired, old and need of a facelift, not to mention a clean. Meat too tough to eat, dessert selection poor. Staff not warm and friendly, food splatter up the walls. Cold and unappealing. Won't be going back

The pork was dry and flavourless, the beef just a hamburger pattie.... however there was plenty to choose from and we enjoyed our... More

Went to Panorama House to celebrate my sister's birthday. We were seated near the window and had a good view down the mountain. Menu seems expensive but with a myriad of entrees, drinks and mains it ended up costing around $60 each. Salads and mains come out packed. Food was very nice. It's a restaurant that I'd like go to...

Took my wife for a drive and ended up at Panorama House. The $ 18 buffet was a big disappointment. Would have gladly paid more for better value. The room was cold ( no atmosphere ) and the coffee was terrible. Given the position (views ) and the potential, this place can do a lot better without much effort. Live... More
