We went in for breakfast and chose the buffet as it added up to about the same price as ordering a la carte. The food was extremely good and there was always a waiter/waitress offering us top ups on coffees.

The variety at the breakfast buffet was incredible. It included all types of seafood, breakfast items, omelet bar, chocolate fountain and desserts to die for! Expensive, but well worth the $30.00
