We ate the Buffet at dinner. Absolutely the biggest waste of money eating out in my life. The roast beef was dried out. The smoked salmon was as salty as anchovies. There were some unique prepared salad selections but nothing for those who wish to make thier own salad. The porterhouse stroganoff looked so overcooked I didn't even try. The... More

The buffet and coffee shop at Wrest Point is the kind of joint I can see Homer Simpson getting stuck into the bountiful yet mundane fare, plate after plate. I went to a 21st here on Saturday night and the atmosphere was sadly lacking for a festive occasion. But if you want to pig out for around $35 and stuff... More

Only visited Wrest Point for breakfast..at the hefty price of $28 for the buffet breakfast we were sadly disappointed. Fresh fruit was nice..other than that the menu has hardly kept pace with modern fare. Bacon and poached eggs scarce, scrambled eggs like leather, barely cooked tomatoes. Throw in some tinned baked beans and a few sausages and that is it... More

Poor selection of food and over priced for what it is. Apart from the deserts which looked and tasted very good, the rest of the food looked like it had been prepared in 1980 and left to simmer. Poor quality and preparation.

I have eaten here many times. The food has always been good. In the past the drink service has been appalling but they seem to have fixed this by being able to get your own now. Being a buffet means you can get the food you like and how much you like. I have often taken visitors here.

Dinner buffet with 2 sittings - 5:00 - 7.45pm or 8:00 - 9:00pm. Foods were tasty no matter cold plate, hot plate and desserts. Environment is casual. Though some said variety was insufficient in AUD34.50, our group from Hong Kong in 10 appreciated it much for the shop kept refill frequently and even provide new kind of food in certain... More

Value was ok. Food was nothing great. It was handy to have a meal but probably would try somewhere else.
