I highly recommend this Buffet, it was absolutely delicious, with a great variety to chose from, the seafood buffet was brilliant, the desserts delicious the salads fresh and the hot roast foods nice, the pork was tender with the crackle being nice and crunchy. We left very full and satisfied, the wine was a bit pricy, with the cheapest bottle... More

Breakfast is great value and lots to pick from but the food could do with being a little hotter especially as they give you Cold plates to eat from

My husband and I chose to stay at the GCI to celebrate our anniversary - a seafood buffet with a wine buffet and only a lift ride back to our room. We were so disappointed. There was a reasonable selection of fresh seafood (crabs, bugs oysters) very ordinary salads and even less appealing stir fried veg, roast veg, steamed fish... More

Very disappointed with this buffet. Not sure if it was because we went on a public holiday, but we still would expect more for this price. On arrival we were shown to our table and given the names of two people who would be our waitresses for the evening. Unfortunately, we didn't see a single waitress during our entire meal.... More

The oysters were so small that in some countries they would be illegal. The place had been pretty much pillaged by a tourist party before we arrived, and the floor around the hot dish area was, how... More

We tried everywhere to find a seafood buffet without everything being fried, battered or crumbed. Happily we paid our $52 to indulge in unlimited Prawns, Oysters, Moreton Bay Bugs, Paddle Crabs and Swimmer crabs among a great selection of other seafood and non-seafood items including Roast Pork. There aren't children because this is a serious buffet. The waste buckets were... More

Staffs: They were always smiling, friendly and ready to help you out. We were told we could have a look at the buffet selection prior deciding whether to eat at the place or not. Our seafood waste bowl was always taken care of and our drinks were filled quickly. Overall, staffs were efficient and professional. Buffet Selection: On a Friday... More
