Fantastic Buffet Breakfast

Everything you could hope to eat and it included sparkling wine!! You can request a "real" coffee - I got a cappuccino. They gave us a lovely table looking out across the city.

Leftover breakfast items beef up this buffet with limited range and no replacements once certain items ran out eg beef and lamb roast ran out by 130pm. Disappointing at $79 per head wouldn't bother again

This is my favourite restaurant for Saturday or Sunday lunch with friends. The buffet has a great variety of seafood, salads, roasts, hot dishes and desserts. The seafood is always fresh and salads change regularly. The hot dishes change according to the theme. The staff are extremely professional from the welcoming "bonjour" to end of service. Sparkling wine is included... More

We went there for a lunch on Sunday. The restaurant has great variety of food but the quality is poor esp seafood. If you are there for seafood, its better to go else where. The service is good though but the restaurant was very crowded. Tables are set very closed to each other.

Excellent variety of food. Bubbly included with lunch and pleasant views across Anzac square to the city. Staff friendly and attentive. Would recommend for couples or groups and especially good value using Accor card

This buffet restaurant used to be good, hence I chose it for my husbands birthday, also as there isn't a lot of choice in Brisbane on a Monday night. We were both disappointed, while the service was good and it is nicely set out with good decor, the food was very poor quality. It was so poor, in fact that... More

If you want a wonderful Buffett breakfast that caters for all tastes with superior service, then you can't go past Sofitel's Thyme restaurant. Everything from the Fresh Juice bar to cooked to order Omelettes, espresso coffee, waffles etc. great value.

My companion and I enjoyed a pre christmas leisurely lunch at our first visit to Thyme restaurant. We were not disappointed as the variety of foods presented would suit all tastes. The variety of plentiful seafood on offer included prawns, Morton Bay bugs, and mussels. Other tastes were catered for with a selection of hot and cold meats, vegetables and... More

Great seafood selection, as well as an extensive selection of other dishes as this was a buffet. Drinks were included in the price of this NYE dinner
