I went here with a group of friends thinking that we would enjoy a fantastic italian buffet for a great price but we were soon to find out about the disaster zone we had entered. The pizzas we COLD and there was limited variety. The pasta was horrible and the sauces were so BLAND! The salad looked like it was... More

We stayed at the Beachcomber next door and was attracted to this by pure convenience and the $15.90 all you can eat pizza and pasta. Firstly the waitress clearly didn't want to be there, secondly there were only 2 pizzas to choose from and it was only 6pm, it was mostly soggy and almost cold. The pasta was a choice... More

Our group of 6, 4 adults 2 children. This is a great place to eat for the budget conscious. Eat as much as you like. Pastas and Pizzas. $15 adult, children whatever there age. Fresh pizzas and pasta dishes bought out regularly as they were busy. Dessert choices not much, but OK for the price. Not around the other cafes,... More

Just had the buffet breakfast and was pleasantly surprised after reading the negative reviews. Simple range but tasty and well prepared. The waitress was charming and efficient. Newspapers were provided along with the news on TV. The restaurant was clean and tidy. Will return.

We had a good little dinner and were in and out very quickly. Our waiter was an "interesting" chap but none the less, the food was great for the price we paid. Food was very quickly which was surprising considering how busy they were. Maitre D was great. Would more than happily go back for another cheap Italian dinner.

Not worth going. The food was terrible and all the plates and cutlery were greasy. The mushroom sauce was like soup and the pizza's were very salty. Struggled to eat more than one bite.

What a, ah, geez, trying to polite here....strange place. I guess if you like mint green, blue and purple walls with Ferrarri decor then this is your style. As others here have mentioned we also went on a meal deal. You certainly wouldn't walk in and pay the full asking price. The pizza was ok, the pasta... um, ordinary, and... More
