Good Buffet of food - freshly presented with fast rotation of dishes so items aren't left looking dry and unappetising. food was tasty and fresh

We ate at the Seafood Buffet which is held there every Saturday night. At a cost of $69 per head I think it is overpriced... More

Interesting variety for dinner but breakfast was a little non-eventful in choice. Would not have it more than one day in a row.

I was a little staggered when I heard the price of the Sunday lunch buffet at the end of our meal. Very limited selection of food that had been sitting too long and wasn't being restocked as we arrived at 2pm. Staff were not rude but there were hardly any of them and our plates were only cleared once the... More

This is a very large restaurant, nice atmosphere with some seating with nice views. They often have a choice of a la carte or buffet style. I very much enjoyed my meal and was happy with the choices on the menu. Staff are very friendly and attentive. I chose the Pork Ribs and was extremely satisfied with that dish. You... More

Restaurant pleasant with stunning views even on a wind swept day. Did get a little noisy but food selection and freshness of seafood was worth the visit. Will go again.

The food here is quite good. The steak, the ribs and the seafood is quite tasty. The wine list does need more of a selection. The deserts are good but, speaking as a sweet tooth, it needs more chocolate options.

My husband and I had dinner at Windjammers on a Sunday night in June 2016. We took advantage of a 30% off deal that was advertised on Facebook. When my husband first tried to book through the advertisement he didn't receive a reply so called the restaurant only to be told by a staff member that to deal existed and... More
