Good Quality Buffet with a Great View

We went here on Sunday evening and found the seafood quite good. Make no mistake you are paying for the view, but the quality seems higher than the Jetty. At about the same price this is by far the better food. I concentrated on oysters and shrimp, with just a little noodle and spring rolls... read more

Went out with a group of friends who are all restaurant managers or supervisors. Worst experience of my life. Seafood was not at all tasty. All the other buffet 'hot' food was lukewarm. The chicken that was supposed to be hot was cold. Surely this needs to be investigated by the council as they have unsafe food practices. We tried... More

We went to this place thinking we were going to a fish and chip shop. What an exceptional surprise. Buffet style all you can eat for $39. The food served was fresh and local. There were some imported dishes, but these were few and marked as such. There was the most tasty assortment of sea food. But also chicken and... More

Tough walk up the stairs and then grilled about the age of our kids (7&4 year old) so not the most hospitable welcome for a restaurant...We would have accepted even a little "false welcome" insiserity! Good table, good view of the buffet and accordingly we planed the attack to demolish the buffet. Unfortunately it all gets very boring very quickly.... More

A buffet of never ending seafood - what more is there to say other than YUM!!! If you don't like seafood they also cater for the non eating seafoodarian. Always busy and always a good time.

it's my first time to dine in this restaurant. heard a lot of good things about this place and thought of giving a try. food selection is good and plenty to choose from but dessert choice is limited. No ice cream, only 2 fruit choices for the chocolate fountain. I love the stickydate pudding though. Ambiance is really nice too.... More

Enjoyed the seafood. Favorite was octopus salad, seafood carbonara and oysters kilapatrick. The variety of deserts is so so but people love... More
