This was AMAZING! I had the lamb rump and was very pleased! Lamb was cooked great and the cauliflower roti was so delicious. Would definitely recommend. Cocktails are also really good here - Pina Colada in particular. Only con was the waitress recommended a cocktail and then didn't know what was in it.... Bit strange.

“Great for lunch and snacks - but not dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

its expensive buffet dinner option - $39 per head, the roast was dry. Also the terrace restaurant is quite empty at night probably because its too expensive and the food is not good - especially when you consider the great options available at the Marina.

“Buffet a let down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Found out that during school holidays this restaurant serves a buffet menu. We enquired as to whether or not seafood was available and when told there were prawns and fresh fish booked in. Unfortunately the seafood, especially the prawns was very ordinary. Certainly nothing to write home about! Other options were roast, cold meats, salads, a curry or fried foods. Dessert was nice with a number of options. I thought that $39.90 was over priced for the quality of the meal.

“nothing special, nothing terrible”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2012

Food was ok here, a bit overpriced. Paid $42 for a steak and $36 for a stuffed chicken breast. Staff seem a bit lost: we were told by the Reception staff we wouldn't have to book, then came down to be told we need a reservation....there were at least 2/3rds of the tables completely empty.

Nice view of the pool, and some cool animals at night.
