Great buffet, very warm quiet ambiance in this restaurant. I wouldn't personally take kids but if you did I would take something to amuse them. Food was great quality and variety. I always find Buffet's expensive but obviously it's because of the variety of food you are offered. I would definitely go back. For the group of friends we had... More

We attended the lunch buffet with free flow sparkling wine. This is a very nice restaurant, the buffet looked amazing and the sparkling started flowing. At first everything was great but as time wore on the hot buffet particularly was not replaced - six empty dishes when I got there, and you cant just wait so you go for something... More

Tried the seafood lunch buffet for the first time and was a little underwhelmed. There were bountiful oysters, prawns, and my favourite, NZ green-lipped mussels but the flavour was just ok. The wide variety of hot food was also just ok, some a little bit dry, others a tad bland. The desserts were the highlight for me with a very... More

Have been dying to come for their "Seafood extravaganza" but could bring myself to part with the $98 to do it. Luckily I got my hands on 50% off deal so jumped on it quickly. Expectations were really high but sadly were not met. The seafood selection is pretty good, there's bugs, crab (but no crab cutlery), prawns, oysters and... More

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
