    We really enjoyed our breakfast here! It was one of the best breakfast buffets I have been to on vacation. I appreciated all the options, and the food was very fresh. I love omelets so I was happy to see the omelet station. We also liked the pastry and fruit selection! Would definitely go back the next time I stay at Universal!

    The best food while we were at Universal. It was a welcome escape with a quiet not crowded room, friendly wait staff, and great food! Wish we ate dinner there every night instead of enduring city walk.

    Great breakfast. Same food as amatista’s at Sapphire Falls. Standard American fare, fresh fruit, lox, cereal, etc. plates could have been set up better, though. I asked for sunny side up eggs. They were ever so lightly browned on the bottom and not slimy on top. Perfect. South Pacific decode that felt warm and inviting with subdued greens and wood accents. Beautiful place. Will eat here again.

    We had a 6:00 PM reservation. We were seated right away, as the restaurant was not crowded. The food was mediocre - nothing very flavorful. Our server was not attentive and never smiled once. We would've been better off grabbing a sandwich or snack at a quick service place.

    Food was ok. Gravy, biscuits and bacon all cold from buffet. Service was slow. Asked for gluten free toast, took forever. No refill on coffee. Best thing was omelette from buffet. He made it perfect. Otherwise would have been 1 star. Food ordered from menu was good pie day, bad two days later for same thing. I would only go here again if I was getting an omelette.

    NYE menu was a 90$ buffet with no drinks included. The price was not mention upon checking in. If you had a seafood allergy you would be unable to eat most items due to the open environment and self service.

    We went NYE and didn’t realize it was a buffet. It was $100 per person; including kids! Absolutely outrageous! I was excited about ordering off of the menu. We weren’t made aware of the price before they brought the check. The food was ok, nothing special.

    We had a lovely dinner here at the Christmas Day dinner buffet. Our server, Philip, was so kind and attentive, and we really appreciated him taking care of us. The food was delicious and plentiful. The prime rib was excellent and very popular! All the staff was excellent and even though it was Christmas night, seemed happy. We really appreciate all the staff who were working.

    Christmas buffet was below average. Food cooked out. Fish items previously frozen and wet. Salad wilted. Desserts, nothing dazzling. Waited and waited for another roast beef to come out of the kitchen. That and the pork loin were very good. Next year, definitely going to Rosen Shingle Creek. That’s a Christmas buffet!

    Christmas Lunch. We were apprehensive at first as we have never been away for Christmas, let alone left the UK for the holidays and so finding the right place for lunch was tricky. However, it was right under our noses as we were staying at the Royal Pacific. The food was beautiful, atmosphere was great and we all thoroughly enjoyed everything on offer. The children really liked the balloon models on offer and it was done in a discreet quiet way so it wasn’t like you were eating at a kids party!
