Our stay at the Sofitel was absolutely fabulous! And Thyme2 made it even better. Wonderful range of foods! Great for dinner and/or breakfast - but is incredibly pricey so make sure you sign up to be an Accor Advantage Plus member and get it for half price ;) Our waiter was also incredibly good. Fantastic, fast ad efficient. Most impressed,... More

We didn't eat until after 9pm as our plane was late. There was still a great choice of meals on offer even at this time. Staff as ever, were courteous & helpful & not intrusive. a lovely dining experience. I had booked ahead so had a beautiful table with views of the city lights.

Short and simple. Amazing buffet dinner and amazing buffet breakfast! Highly recommended. It is a little pricey so make sure you're nice and hungry so you can get your money's worth. Or do what we did and use your accor advantage plus card for half price!

The welcoming door man, the friendly and helpful service, respectful and helpful attitude of staff, and the food for it's quality, variety of choice and presentation. We like the decor, the music the location and parking arrangements. The costs are fair. . We would choose this hotel for overnight stays in he future..

I guess the downturn in the mining industry in Australia has far reaching consequences. With the Sofitel Brisbane being a favourite haunt of employees from the big mining companies it must be feeling the effects of the downturn. I have been to this restaurant many times over the last 20 years (through various name changes and face-lifts). Unfortunately this is... More

As soon as you walk into the restraunt, the aromas hit your nostrils and you feel like you are in heaven. Saturday night is the best night because of the seafood and when my wife and I went with my two boys and girfriends it was a French theme. The food is fresh tasty and plenty of it. Prawns, bugs,...

The food here is wonderful. It is a buffet, but the difference to most is that there are only small plates of food which are constantly renewed. The seafood is great and have to say so is the rest of their food. On the weekends there is a never ending flow of 'bubbles' included. The view over the city is... More

Went for. 21st birthday interactive lunch. Seafood was fresher than expected and was topped up continuously. Oysters were of reasonable quality, bugs were a little on the small side but the prawns were just exceptionally good. The other areas of the lunch was good too. The entre section was to be expected with some salads, cold cuts. The sushi wasn't... More

I recently enjoyed the buffet breakfast at Thyme with my wife and two small kids. Although we regularly eat out with he kids, especially for breakfast, we did feel a little out of place at this restaurant. This buffet feels refined, grown up and a notch above the regular hotel buffet breakfasts. In saying that, however, this is one of... More

The breakfast continues to be an enjoyable experience with a very good range of choices and quantity coupled with very attentive and helpful staff. Over many years this continues to be a proven winner and one of the singular reasons (apart from location) for choosing this hotel.
