Spending $200 per head at xmas - and you'd expect a certain level of food quality.
Have to say - it was pretty unimpressive for the Sheraton. They should take a leaf out of Palazzo Versace's book for a great buffet experience.
The food was lack lustre. Overcooked. No flavour. And not he best fishermans catch either.
The service was very good, however, but it was let down by a so so average lunch.
The desserts, on the other other hand, were very good.

We stayed at the Sheraton mirage for a week and the buffet breakfast was a highlight every morning. Even more impressive was their dinner buffet which was rich is delicious seafoods and hot roasts. The staff were very welcoming and attentive- will be coming back at the next opportunity

Our family of 4 went here for dinner to check out the Mirage which was so famous in it's hey-day.
Well the décor was awful (30 yrs out of date). The buffet had very limited options and I had to complain to the waiter because all the plates in the stack were greasy and hadn't been washed properly. The al a carte menu had very few and disappointing choices. The lighting in the restaurant was so dark I could barely see my food or the menu. No wonder no one goes here. Needs a re-vamp urgently.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback for which I am disappointed that it wasn’t of a more positive nature.

The resort is about to embark on a full renovation in early 2014, a very exciting time for the team here, which will address a number of the concerns you have raised.

We hope that you will find the time in the near future to return and enjoy what is and will continue to be a very special place to stay.

Once again, thank you for your feedback.

Kind regards

David Alexander
Food & Beverage Manager
