“Very poor meal”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I recently was given a meal voucher for the Marriot. I took my wife to what I thought would have been a lovely meal but what a mistake . We ordered from the menu my wife had what they called lamb bites. This meal came and had to be sent back to be recooked and I had what I can only call the worst sea food platter I have ever had. Drinks ordered on arrival didn't come out until the main meal arrived approx half hour or so and only after asking if they were coming. Over all one of the worst dinning experiences we have had on the coast. Never to return.

“Wow. Best buffet in surfers for sure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

I extensively researched surfers paradise buffets. Went with 4 adults and 4 kids (12,10,8 and 4). Restaurant decor is lovely and new. Food selections awesome including extensive seafood. It was expensive but they only charged us for 3 adults and 2 kids as they could see some of us hadn't eaten much. Dessert bar was a huge hit with the kids. The homemade English toffee I scream and homemade butterscotch sauce was a hit with the adults! Attentive and prompt services. It was so good all the kids demanded we go back there again on our last night in surfers. Definitely one not to be missed if your after a great Buffet.

“Meal at the main restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

We were not staying at this hotel, but went for a meal in the evening. This was a smorgasbord style meal. Very good selection of seafood, but also plenty for those who could not or did not want to eat the seafood. Pricing was expensive if you didnt have a Marriott Card.
