“Excellent Buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

My family and I dined at the Terraces Seafood Buffet Restaurant at Sheraton Mirage on a Friday evening. A busy night. I had made a reservation, shame we were seated in a bad location, join the Sheraton preferred guest membership prior to going it will save you a few dollars. Service is very good with waiters/waitresses polite but do seem to be a little watched all the time as our table was situated right beside a service station. Water was quickly replenished and used plates quickly removed away, but other drinks were not replenished. The food here was very good, but I did find that the hot seafood was a little overcooked. Oysters kilpatrick were a little flooded with tomato sauce. Prawns excellent. Variety of roasts good, cold meats, salads, cheeses all excellent. Desserts are beautiful and very well presented as you would expect.
We all had an enjoyable night and would go again.

“Unbelievable food and views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2011

We go every February and never get tired of it. If you dont like seafood its worth the money to go for just the sweets. The oysters are done every way possible and if you like you can pay $20 for the wine buffett which includesNZ Sauv Blanc. The Roast Pork is to die for and so is everything else. You need to book and arrive on the dot of 12 noon. The service is also pleasant. Ive never stayed at the Sheraton MIrage Gold Coast but I wouldnt miss it for the world ; Terraces SEAFOOD Buffet forever

“Fantastic food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2011

A very good seafood buffet - fresh seafood and a great selection. Also avaliable was cooked seafood, roast pork and lamb and vegies. The dersert options were awesome too!
The staff looked after us SO well and were very helpful.
We got a great off season price of $49.95 which is avaliable during the week in the off season. Wine buffet was $22.

“Not up to Sheraton's usual standards”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011

We stayed at the Sheraton last weekend and dined at the Terraces Restaurant. I had the seafood buffet but as my husband has a number of allergies, he elected to order an entree and main from the a la carte menu.

We asked our waitress if my husband could have a particular fish main without sauce (as it contained shellfish, which he is allergic to) and she refused. He ordered two chicken dishes as almost every other dish contained an ingredient that he couldn't have, and we both ordered a drink. The waitress came back 4 times because she had forgotten our order, and then came back once more to tell us that the chef wanted to know why my husband had ordered 2 chicken dishes. We explained to her for the third time that he was allergic to everything else on the menu, then she came back a fifth time to say that the chef was more than happy to make the fish main he had originally wanted without the sauce. My husband's food (when it eventually arrived) looked lovely and he was very happy with it. It's just a shame that his excellent food was accompanied by such an incompetent waitress.

I thought the seafood buffet was ok but it definitely wasn't as good as the buffet I've had at other Sheratons (especially Sydney's Sheraton on the Park which is fantastic.) The prawns were very good but the two types of chilled crab on offer had been frozen and weren't very nice, and the hot food was limited to cooked spiced prawns, Oysters Kilpatrick and crumbed and battered fish and calamari and roast meat and vegetables. The desserts were a definite let-down - the Sheraton on the Park's dessert buffet is sublime but the Sheraton Mirage's was small and all of the desserts looked like they had been bought in rather than made fresh on the premises. For $90 (excluding drinks) I expected better - but then again, the buffet was packed, so obviously it is popular.
