We enjoyed the breakfast buffet at the Conservatory. Coffee was great and there was an abundant amount of food that was constantly replenished. Staff were attentive and the variety of food was great.

Have been here now several times and it really is a nice Buffet for Buffets. Food is much better than most places like this and there is a wide selection. Service and Decor is good, making it feel that bit special. Highly recommend if you are wanting this style of Restaurant.

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.
