    To start we waited 10 minutes for someone at the desk to check us in. We were then seated and asked for a drink menu but nothing came and she said she would get one, then had to get up and find someone to help us after another 10 minutes waiting. Drinks arrived which we were happy about. Got up to get dinner and there were only 3 different meats on offer. Nothing for the fussy kids, no nuggets. The chips were mixed in with the crumbed seafood pieces. Barely any food options for the price we paid to go there. Best part was the seafood which still was only 6 different things on offer. The salad bar had a few options, the potatoes were raw in the roasted vegetables, the deserts were ok if you like cheap vanilla ice cream. We had dinner at the 7pm seating and they brought out no more deserts so barely anything there to try. Overall NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!

    Definitely recommend! Food was incredible and the service was immaculate! They really looked after me as they knew it was birthday celebration. Great seafood but also great if you don’t eat seafood! The chocolate mouse was insane.

    Had the Friday night, early bird buffet dinner. 20% off and included wine which made it very good value for money. The food was fresh, tasty with lots of variety. The service was also outstanding, the lady at the door could not have been anymore welcoming or helpful and she set the example for the rest of the staff who followed suit. Thoroughly recommend, you won’t be disappointed.

    Friendly service every need dealt with quickly. Outstanding food quality with Chefs who care and are happy to cater for any special requests. Nearly every food option available from fresh oysters to blue steak and everything in between (pork crackling a fave). Strawberry chocolate fountain and massive selection of slices, cakes, ice cream toppings completes a buffet fit for a royal wedding.

    Unfortunately, the food was not great! The seafood wasn't fresh, and the roast meats were undercooked. The desserts were nice and the best part of the buffet. The serviettes were terrible, they were disposable and did not even dry your hands after eating seafood and washing them in the water bowl. The serviette literally felt like a tissue that fell apart and stuck to your hands when wet. The service was nice.

    Tina and Iza have superb customer service and made our dining experience wonderful. Other staff also are good like Dave, Mark, and Jarryd. The food, we love the lamb, thai chicken, mussels, crabs, and oysters. We never expected the free drinks on a Friday night. My 9 year old has enjoyed the kids and fruits corner. Appreciate the effort of Tina for the birthday sweet platter with candle and happy birthday song for our eldest son who turned 18 on that night. Lastly, appreciated the effort of Iza for attending to us and taking pictures for us to make the 18 birthday a memorable one. Will come back on a Friday night!

    It's been awhile since I have visited, but will definitely be back. It probably has the best value option for families with the kids prices that are actually reasonable. Kids don't eat much seafood. Tina greeted us and was exceptional as a host. Was extremely helpful and made the night great. The Food was also a suprise, some fo the best prawn pasta I have had. The selection was diverse but quality offerings. I would highly recommend you visit.
