We had not booked and the concierge seemed a bit stuffy about that but all other staff contact was excellent, and there was plenty of staff. The buffet seemed popular but not having eaten much that day we chose steak, which overall was disappointing from a taste perspective. Cooked to order.

Chelos has a reasonable buffet - breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffet is very comprehensive and caters for the Australian to Asian tastes. If anything, there is a complete lack of professionalism in service. Restaurant Manager should train staff to understand that this is a fairly middle of the road buffet restaurant and one that does deserve good waitering skills.... More

Food was ok, nothing to rave over. I guess they have a lot of tourists coming through and have to cater for larger no's. Bit of a cafeteria atmosphere.

This is a restaurant in a resort and it shows. The dishes we ordered were as described, no more and no less. I feel the staff would benefit from some hospitality training when it comes to when and how to remove unwanted crockery, glasses etc and used plates. I do object to waiters reaching across diners unless absolutely essential. Although... More

I thought the $48 per head was a little rich for a hotel buffet feed and the prawns were fairly tastless. The bugs and oysters kilpatrick were a little better - as were the lamb shanks. But being with people who don't 'pig out' there weren't any inexpensive options. The bar wasn't manned a couple of times when I went... More

We have stayed before at the Radisson and will undoubtedly go there again but we will not have dinner there. The breakfast is good and lot of different items but even on Christmas Eve, the dinner buffet was so disappointing

The seafood buffet was not that great. Not much to choose from. If you don't like seafood then don't eat here as the meat is dry and the curries are sloppy.
