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

Stayed at the Novetel Hotel Wollongong where Windjamners Restaurant is located. It's open for guests of the hotel and the public.Overlooks the beach. Beautiful setting. Staff very friendly. Food so very yummy. Will visit there again when we are in Wollongong.

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

We ate at the hotel for all but one meal and were never disappointed. The fresh seafood on offer was superb. Such a great variety to cover all dietary requests.

We spent a lazy Monday lunchtime enjoying the seafood buffet.The view is excellent and the staff friendly if a bit slow.The buffet food was good but even though (or maybe because) it was a quiet day with only a handful of tables occupied, availability of the prime choices was a bit random.

Stayed overnight at Novatel hotel, North Wollongong Beach. Hotel superb, dined in restaurant. Waitress was very friendly and obliging, relative to my wife being a coeliac, and understood her dietary requirements. Food was well presented and reasonably tasty. Restaurant is very noisy. Prices are reasonable.
