I must admit. I came here expecting a reasonable, and hopefully edible hotel buffet at best but got a wonderful, fresh, truly high quality meal in a bright, modern, clean environment with great staff. Seafood here was super fresh, very tasty and just great. The BBQ on the deck which was part of the buffet was a great touch. The... More

There are usually options for buffet or a la carte at dinner and I found the food and presentation absolutely immaculate, as was the service and cleanliness. Most tables have good views to the North Wollongong beach. It is quite a large restaurant, not what I would call intimate, but there are certainly multiple food choices on the menu. I... More

Came to this restaurant for dinner because there were not many options in the area. The patio was nice, with a beautiful view of the ocean. We shared a beetroot salad as an appetizer which was not too bad. For main, i ordered the slow cooked lamb shoulder. Although it had a nice flavour, it was a bit dry and... More

Visited on the evening of Jan 1st as an accor advantage plus member Opted for the a la carte menu. The service was disgraceful. Took 30 minutes + to clear main plates, didn't come to table to top up wine or ask how our meal was. Asked for desert menu (as was not offered) and then waited 25 mins for... More

We went to the restaurant for NYE buffet dinner. For $75 per person, the buffet wasnt as great as other RSL club buffets. Firstly, the number of dishes on the table is a scam. They have the same 7/8 dishes on two different tables, thereby making it appear to having a lot of variety. While the seafood variety was good,... More

8 of us ate here on New Year's Eve lunch, including 3 children. Great selection of seafood, mains and desserts, with friendly service and a spectacular view. My favourite place to eat in the Illawarra.

Had a table booked for Xmas dinner, $135.00 per head, 15 of us, so that's $2025.00, without the drinks. Asked for a booster seat for my granddaughter, they bring a high chair, order 3 bottles of wine, the first waitress puts it behind us, that's fine, the second waitress brings our champagne glasses, and just leaves!! we have to pour...

Very dissapppinted! Wanted to take my Aunty out for lunch as she is local in Corrimal and as I was coming from Sydney booked this restaurant as thought would be safe bet. Other than the view (which was fantastic) everything was very poor. The food, service, attentiveness and price were underwhelming. Never will eat at the Novatel again
