Seafood is very good, but

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... read more

I went with a group of friends from my club for a buffet lunch with the theme "Christmas in July" well, there was no Christmas Joy apart from Bon Bons on the table then we had to wait for the oysters and the hot dishes were only just warm.No gravy or cranberry sauce to be seen and at the price...

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

We had breakfast, lunch and room service dinner ftom Windjammers during our stay at the Novotel. The food was very good. The restaurant was always busy, but service was helpful, friendly, quick and efficient. Particularly during the buffet lunch food was replenished very quickly throughout the service. The seafood at the buffet lunch was fresh. Desserts were just delicious!

The restaurant is huge and not very personal. Noise is very distracting with tiled floors. Wine selection looks great but wines are very poor quality and I have tasted better cask wine which is not $50 a bottle. Seafood Buffet was OK and fresh food was fine but hot food was disgusting.
