Great seafood buffet - fresh cold oysters, prawns, salmon etc plus some hot dishes like mussels. Sadly I hear this restaurant is closing in 2015.

For my 22nd trip to Australia I was joined for dinner at Captain Cook's Cove in the Stamford Grand North Ryde Hotel by eight other attendees from a conference in Sydney. As the sole vegetarian in the group, and knowing that dinner would be enjoyed in a restaurant where the house specialty is seafood, I had already become resigned to... More

This was not the first time we had been to this restaurant, and it is always good. Quality is great and it seems good value. The staff are most pleasant and welcoming, the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed and there is a good variety. The house wine is also great and the vaiety of desert although limited, is still great.... More

There is a large variety of seafood which is always fresh and constantly replenished. The many salads are innovative and delicious.There is also an excellent variety of hot food available.... More

The Friday and Saturday nights' seafood buffets are as good as you get. They have oysters, prawns, Balmain bugs, blue swimmer crabs, Plus heaps of salads. The hot food dishes are a good mixture of seafood and meat dishes. The dessert selection is quite large. All food selections are constantly being topped up so no disappointment.

Went here with family of 10 for Saturday night seafood buffet. Not everyone was a seafood fan but there were plenty of non-seafood alternatives. Contrary to other comments on Tripadvisor - you can swap the included wine for soft drink and they do have tea/coffee as part of the price ($63). The food was good, service was good - the... More

We were not stating in the hotel but from previous experiences I chose this venue for a breakfast meeting as it was near to our function. I had prospective suppliers (managing directors) attend and we had to wait and watch whilst a number of tables were slid together to accommodate 5 people. Did not want buffet because of the nature...

This was a 79th Birthday celebration for our mother which was truly diabolical. From the upfront payments two weeks prior to the event and no confirmation to the dirty floors which obviously had not been swept from lunch this was not high tea but afternoon tea held in a low grade cafeteria. The wait staff dropped spoons, slopped tea and... More
