We found a voucher in a tourist brochure for $44 each instead of over $60. Seafood available was mussels, prawns, crab and oysters, plus a seafood salad and some sushi. This really isn't enough to call yourself a seafood buffet. The other food was nice, but nothing special and the wine list was fairly average. The service was fantastic from... More

Seafood buffet at Aud65 for Fri. The choice of cold seafood is so small. The taste is salty. The hot food nothing much to talk about. The only perk is the service from this new staff who attented to us. Overall, the selection of food and taste did not meet our expectation. Will not recommend to friend.

As tourists to the Gold Coast, we saw an advert for a 'Seafood' Buffet in a local magazine. We thought the price was reasonable at Aus $55 per person. - We couldn't have been more wrong. The food was absolutely awful. Very small amount of seafood on offer and the rest was overcooked, overseasoned rubbish food that I wouldn't even... More

This restaurant was very disappointing and I would certainly not reccomend it as there is far better on the Gold Coast. I thought it was a big rip off for the price considering the food was not refilled, there was no one on the station all night to carve the lamb and it sat on the carving board for most... More
