we attended the Cafe Pacifica for brunch on Sunday 5th September, which happened to be the Chinese Moon Festival. The staff could not have been more attentive, right from the phone booking to the receptionist and serving staff the whole time we were there. Food was of high quality and a great range of dishes, many from Oriental cuisine, whenever... More

WE decided to have lunch here while waiting to check-in. The waitress who was working alone, was attentive and efficient. Our food was prepared to order and delicious.

We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and one dinner here. The buffet was delicious and had a wide variety of food to choose from. The dinner was delicious. Neither is cheap but both are very good!

All the guide books identify Cafe Pacifica as the place to have Sunday Brunch. At $52 it is expensive and I think falls short of the value one might expect. The venue is an open off lobby space in a modern hotel so lacking in atmosphere although the views over the harbour and adjacent cruise ships was nice enough. Service... More

Ate breakfast while I stayed at the hotel. The view was great…the decor was ok. Service was friendly. Not a really fancy ambience but a comfortable place to have breakfast.

Worst buffet experience ever. It made me unwell. Food quite bland. The waffles were hard as rock! Not worth the plates it's served on.

Worth the view and small but reasonable choices of food. Bit bland decor but good service and nice Thai soup and good burgers. When staying at the hotel it's not a bad place to hang out but lacks atmosphere.

Casual dinning but on Saturday night there is a good buffet while you can listen to opera. The view of the harbour is an added attraction. Other days the menu is rather limited.

The substandard quality of the supposedly flatiron steak compromised an otherwise pleasant meal. We dined at Café Pacifica using a travelzoo promotional voucher for a family of four. I ordered the crab/salmon while the rest of the family opted for flatiron/braised Bison rib entrees. Despite the facts that all the steaks were cooked to medium rare as ordered, their toughness...

We had a 49th Class reunion in the Café Pacifica last Saturday: it was a most pleasant experience. We were a group of 30, and the management had us nicely situated in a comfortable corner of the restaurant. Our previously sent seating plan was adhered to, place cards correctly provided, and announcements for birthdays, anniversary were carried out by the... More
