We went to this restaurant for a special anniversary. It is not cheap but there are an abundance of self serve buffet food styles. There were oysters, prawns, seafood, Asian food. Many types of sweets. The service from staff was excellent. This restaurant has to be tried. Has great views of the Yarra River.

Once inside it did feel slightly chaotic, and was extremely busy. We were seated and advised to help ourselves to the buffet and that someone would... More

Went for lunch for my husbands birthday. We had been on many occasions but this time were slightly disappointed in the seafood, which is his favourite. The oysters were tiny and the prawns soft and spongy like they had been frozen. The seafood was once the highlight of lunch, unfortunately this week everything else was of much better quality. Still... More

Had dinner on a Sunday night in Feb 2017 at The Conservatory Crown Complex. Price was a bit steep but The quality & variety was exceptional. Great range of delicious salads, seafood, Japanese, Indian, Chinese cuisines. Food seemed very fresh. Great desert choices. Thoroughly enjoyed it & would return again
