Prepare yourself this is one very big breakfast from eggs done every way to bacon sausages, pancakes, cereals fruit muffins and all the juices coffee tea and more, there is something for everyone. Down side is it costs around $30 a head so becomes very expensive for large families especially for little ones that don't eat much.

We ate the breakfast buffet each of 3 days and were very satisfied with the quality and variety of eggs, bacon , sausage, fruit, hash browns and toast. In addition they had two espresso machines that kept busy all the time and were excellent. There was lots of choice for seating as well.

Fairly wide selection of food in Breakfast buffet, but definitely lacking in quality, specially the hot food. The bacon and sausages were horrible and smelly. Sausages were very starchy for some reason.. Fruits not fresh, mostly appear to be from can. For resort status, the restaurant can do lot better.

I went on the first day, and the waitress told me 7am. The next day i went before 7 and was actually opened at 6:30. I had to walk around till i found... More

Typical breakfast buffet. Eggs and sausage good. Layout confusing. Couldn't find the forks and napkins & every member of our group had to go back to find at least one item of cutlery that they could not find on their first trip to the buffet. Dining room noisey with loud music playing at breakfast in a noisy open area. Not... More

Although a little expensive, we went for the breakfast once during our stay. Get there early for a seat overlooking the bay. A good range of food, with plenty of everything and all hot. Didn't try the coffee, but the juices were nice and cold. Also tried the automatic pancake maker, which worked fine - don't normally eat pancakes but... More

Twice we went in search of this so called buffet breakfast. We worked out where it should be, but the rollers were down. We arrived between 8.45am - 9am on 2 days Didn't see anyone eating in the eatery part. So I guess unless there are bookings they don't open. .From some reports it may have been just as well... More

We decided we would try the buffet breakfast during our stay at the Tangalooma resort, but soon wished we hadn't. The food was horrible, the buffet was dirty and poorly kept. Dirty cutlery and plates were kept with the "clean" ones. The coffee in the coffee machines was horrible and undrinkable. The fruit was far from fresh. The bacon was... More

Lots of choices, not all hot food was hot. Only melon or tin fruit cut up, apple wasn't fresh. Pancakes were good. Was a pain to ask for lactose free milk at the price you pay you think they could have some available. Danishes were the worse I had, I only could take a bite. Maybe they could do something... More

Plenty of choice, well laid out & organised. Staff very helpful. Meal deals on the breaky would be great - like pay full for & get the second at half price / $15 / kids at half price. Would make it an ideal brekkie for two.
