We had received a recommendation to go here for great seafood. There were a couple of nice dishes. Octopus salad, muscles and the crab claw was nice but no utensils provided to get the best meat. Main dissatisfaction was that the hot dishes were luke warm if that. Nothing worse than cold garlic prawns. And we were there early. Too... More

Back again, this time mid week and it was much quieter. Even though we arrived later than usual and there wasn't many people there all food trays were full and more kept coming out. All the staff were great and we all had a great time and great food.

Me and my husband went there on my birthday and i just wanna say I LOOOVE the food! I loved the Barramundi and the veggies too. Didn't really like the steak cos it was a bit bland but it was alright. I just can't wait to go back there again! :)

Stopped in for dinner with my NT Besty. Lots to choose from seafood, asian dishes, roasts. Don't forget the sweets and help yourself to the ice cream cart. For large groups it's a good idea to book, we've booked before for 20 the day before and they easily accommodated us at two tables outside on the deck. You need to... More

The best thing about this buffet is if you sit on the deck and admire the view of the harbour. The buffet itself is great, excellent variety and it all tastes delicious, meat, chicken, stir fry, pasta, rice, seafood. They have it all. Only downfall was the dessert, passion fruit cheesecake was damn near plastic and tasted horrible, the cakes... More

The environmental is amazing, overlooking the water during the sunset is amazing, The variety of choice is very good, not much on the means of salad but so many seafood types and other yummy things. Don't fill up on rice, get your money's worth and eat as many pieces of steak and garlic prawns as you can.

Went early on a Friday night. Hot food was warm at best - a bit of a worry from a food safety point of view. However, my husband and sis-in-law said the prawns and oysters were cold and fresh. Steak was freshly cooked. Good variety of foods - although not many choices for salad. Standard desserts - some frozen slab... More

Went here fora work social function. Despite or big group, the staff were friendly and attentive. We had the buffet for $39.50, which was great with a good selection of seafood and other meats and did dishes. Only downside was a single bill for a very large group. Recommended.
