Had a coffee here, nice views with the sea across the road, generally busy and the food coming out looked lovely and well proportioned. Worth a try.

Lovely Fathers Day Dinner. We attended the Fathers Day Function on the 7th of September. The food was quite good, the lamb cutlets were wonderful! We found the prawns were not super fresh, but the Oysters were wonderful! One waiter in particular "Anna" was very friendly and helpful, she made the rest of the night. For $69 I would expect...

We had the buffet on Saturday night. The food was very fresh but there wasn't much choice other then seafood. I myself do not like seafood, and the 'other' choices were very minimal. We have eaten at a lot of seafood buffets and this was definitely one of the lesser ones.

The meal I had was disappointing for any restaurant. Especially disappointing for a moderately expensive restaurant in an expensive hotel. I paid $37 for a meal that I would have been disappointed with if it had cost $10. The so called Glazed Pork Loin on herb quinoa & hot apple chutney turned out to be an un-glazed cold pork loin...

We went for Dinner & had the buffet, the sea food was Excellent, Oysters, Prawns, Bugs & crabs all top quality! The wine was very reasonably priced & service was excellent! Would recommend arriving just before dark to see the water & taking your time for the meal. Will be back for sure!

Ihave enjoyed this restaurant for years but sadly since the novatels takeover earlier this year the meals and service has deteriorated greatly. Even the childrens play area had only broken useless toys until I drew their attention to the matter and they have improved this slightly. Maybe they will read this review and make serious changes to bring the ratings... More

Windjammer overlooks Wollongong beach. I fully recommend the buffet lunch. Great food, great value. A window table is the best but you can still see the view from anywhere in the restaurant.

Went for lunch as and hadn't been since I was very young. Reminded me of those buffets that got shut down or went broke more than a decade ago. Completely inedible hot meals and seafood was tasteless (crabs) or unclean (oysters). The salad bar was really drab and the fluorescent cake selection didn't even look legal. The ice cream fridge...

Good go to place in evening, meals were well priced and had large tvs, but sound very low so you could watch the news and just hear. But food and bar good and made me stay at hotel more than go elsewhere.
