Buffet breakfast was best I have ever had. Great variety of food, which was hot. Staff were extremely efficient.

We had the Buffet dinner here last week. The Seafood is fresh & delicious with quite a good selection in the evening. Prawns, Crab claws, Bugs, Mussels & maybe Oysters, don't remember, they must have been unremarkable as we had two Oyster lovers? Salads & sides all tasty. Desserts were impressive and yummy! However our non Seafood lovers pronounced the... More

Staff were excellent. Unfortunately due to the weather the bbq was not available but the smorgasbord was well stocked , had variety, and staff were attentive. Wine waiter looked after us well and recommended a lovely Australian wine.

Breakfast at windjammers is fine but although I thought the seafood dinner buffet was good value for money - it still lacked something for me & I wished I had decided to order off the a la carte menu. There is not a great deal of seafood options on offer & there is also meat & veg options in the... More

The Windjammers Restaurant feels like an upclass all-you-can-eat buffet, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! The service is friendly and great, and the food is pretty good - given that its made for mass portions, its not the same quality as you'd expect from another, more personalised, resturant but then there's also no wait time either. When I say... More

We went on a Monday night. my kids loved the Thai chicken and raviolli. The prawns didn't have flavour, that prawns usually have and the rock oysters look anarexic. salads were nice. But I paid for seafood menu $45.00 for me, $35.00 for my 13yld and $11.00 for my 11yld. Value for money well no. The bread rolls and butter... More
