Firstly the service and staff are brilliant. We are dinner here but felt the menu was limited for choice and the food was actually not great. Overall it was passable and considering the other reviews perhaps we caught it on a bad night. My husbands meal was cold and inedible, but they didn't charge him for it. The other meals... More

Food was excellent. Staff were pleasant and very helpful. We ate there 5 nights out of 8. Meals were always hot and delicious. Happy hour 4-6 every afternoon is a must!

We stay here with our 3 small children and got a package were buffet breakfast was included and kids eat free. The buffet breakfast has the usual you expect from a buffet breakfast and was well worth it even if we had to pay the $17.50 per adult which is very cheap! The view over looking the pool was amazing!... More

Stayed here for 4 nights with my partner and ate here on several occasions. Brekky was buffet-style and never disappointed. The chefs were kind enough to take requests to accommodate our allergies - thanks guys! As for lunch, you couldn't beat the wraps, burgers, AND never-ending scrumptious amount of fries. And dinner, get the chicken parm. 'Nuff said

An informal restaurant at the Rendezvous Reef Resort. meals are very reasonably priced, simple but well presented and tasty! Recommended for anyone visiting or from neighbouring resorts :)
