“Turned off on the last day of my trip”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

Bfast buffet was great. On the last day, the day we were checking out, we came in 30min before buffet ended. I asked a waitress if she had a bowl for the fruits that were there every morning, she said what bowls? In a very frustrated manner. When I pointed at the fruits, she said oh! Big attitude! We made sure we took what we wanted so they can clear the food. We sat and enjoyed the food. At around 10am, the waitress said that in 5min they are going to lock the doors on us. I have never been treated like that at any accommodation 1 or 5 star. Unbelievable.

“very disappointing on a number of levels - let down for a birthday”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

After reading the previous two reviews I have decided to write about our experience in the hope that the management of Lake Crackenback takes note. The resort is wonderful but our experience of Cuisine ruined a special birthday celebration. I booked weeks in advance advising them that it was a special birthday celebration for a guest who was coming from New Zealand. I phoned again the week before to make sure everything was in place. We arrived early for our reservation planning on having cocktails. No sooner were the cocktails in our hands but we were being asked to come to our table to order. We ordered the crab omlette and duck pasta starters. The omlette was sublime but the duck although tender was ordinary. We had the opposite experience of other guests with regards to time. We had hardly put down our starter cutlery when the mains came out. Hubby had the steak which he said was excellent. I ordered the fish and completely agree with the comments below. The sauce was thin and bland and did nothing for the fish. When asked by a waitress (we did not have one person designated to our table which is part of the problem) I was honest about the meal. She said the chef wanted feedback so duly went off to pass it on. This is where our experience took an even worse turn. I had already ordered my dessert but my husband had said he preferred to wait. He asked for the menu only to be told that the chef had already cooked him the souffle (the same as my order). He was so taken aback that he was being told what dessert he was having that we did not have time to complain. So for his birthday he was presented with a dessert he did not wish to order and missed out on the chocolate dessert which was his preference. We had asked for advice on the wines for each course but as none was forthcoming we chose our own and had to remind them twice. The barman was excellent though. Our entire dinner experience was over in an hour and a half. The problem is not the the waitresses who were friendly and tried hard. There is no management or organization. This was confirmed by the disorganization for breakfasts. The layout is simply silly (who puts a table with toasts in the narrowest part of the dining area where there is already a bottle-neck??). We were very disappointed by our experience of Cuisine and sadly cannot recommend it particularly on the basis of a lack of floor management. Definitely do not risk a birthday celebration.

The food was great, but very expensive and services are very slow. We waited for 1.5 hour for our mains.
