“Fabulous food. Great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

We visited the Buffalo as two couples in early June after buying a voucher for the meals online. We had been told that the food was supposed to be terrible etc but as the courses came out we were absolutely delighted. My steak was generous, lean and tender, cooked perfectly and served attractively with caramelized onion. The entrees and desserts equally yummy. We would definitely go back again. The service was friendly and prompt. We were embarrassed to receive so much value for our money but would certainly pay the normal prices to dine there again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review. It's true that the Restaurant had a bad reputation for food and service, although since taking over in late October 2012, we have worked very hard at trying to improve in these areas. Looking at the positive reviews, it's heartening to see that this is paying off, although we will keep working hard every day to continue to improve. Thanks again. Richard Finlayson owner

Often restaurants that revolve or like this are on board a ship are overpriced and food is disappointing with expensive drinks

This was not the case here . The food cooked perfectly , reasonably priced including wines . friendly service .

“The buffalo, Paul S”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

What a great surprise!
Been years since I ate here, we saw it open and wandered in. Friendly greeting and offered a table by the window. A cold beer watching the sun set over the Marina, then delicious fresh seafood from a very, very reasonably priced menu.
Such a unique venue, a replica sailing ship placed in the water.
Great excuse to talk like a pirate (apologies to the staff and nearby tables).
The staff were friendly, professional and attentive.
A coffee then a walk around Glenelg. A fun, easy on the pocket experience at this South Aussie icon. Can't wait for the next voyage. Probably try an individual cabin next time.

“"Great meal, excellent service"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Last evening we took our three grandchildren to the Buffalo Restaurant and all enjoyed it very much. Good range of choices on menu and service could not be faulted. Meals were served promptly, nicely presented and delicious. We will return.
