As a local we have tried many buffets on the Gold Coast and this one is by far the best. It is also the most expensive even with promotional discounts but we never leave with any complaints. The seafood is in abundance and always fresh as are the salads but we find the roasts always tender and not full of fat. The desserts are fresh and tasty. The service is excellent with just the right amount of attention without being intrusive. It really is a lovely experience.

We went on a Sunday night and the restaurant was busy. The Buffet is one of the best I have been to. The selection of seafood (oysters,prawns,bugs,salmon,sashimi etc),salads (all types) cheeses and hot dishes (roasts etc) was spectacular and the desserts were to die for. The waitress we had (Carmen) was very very good - bringing clean plates, cutlery, hand water bowls and napkins at just the right time. We had a table overlooking the pool and that made the evening even more pleasurable. All in all, a great Buffet experience and I would highly recommend if you are looking for a buffet.

I hate buffets however the one here is very very good...not perfect but they have great range of seafood, good roasts, great salads and fantastic deserts. A special mention to Franco who was great, and all the staff were the best I have seen from an Australian Hotel. the seafood ranges from 2 types of crab, sushimi, sushi, prawns, oysters and a variety of different seafood salads. The only criticism would be there were not many other meals for non seafood eaters being main meals, just 2 roasts and butter chicken. One other criticism is when are restaurants going to get roast potato's right, roast potato's are not boiled potato's, they are usually cooked twice, crisp skin and fluffy inside. Salads were good, again could of had a bigger variety but still very good. deserts were very good, creme brulee, all types of cakes etc
