We had a buffet breakfast each morning we stayed (4 nights) at Yalumba. The staff were wonderful, after the first day they remembered our drinks order each morning. The were kind to our 20 month old too, even when he was being a little noisy. Great pastries and nice fresh juices.

A truly excellent restaurant which is a "must" at lunchtime. The buffet is one of the best I have ever had and the experience is greatly enhanced by Mr. Nandana de Alwis and his team who are professional, friendly and maintain a high standard of service. First class experience, eating there every lunchtime for nearly a week !
